Content of the Workshop

If there is no excursion on the program, you can relax after breakfast at various beautiful spots on the estate, read and lounge in the hammock under the tree, take an active walk in the area or relax at the pool. In the evening, have a nice dinner on the outdoor terrace with a beautiful view and then maybe a last dance while enjoying a drink under the setting sun.
