When it comes to dining, The Ranch Italy follows the model of “nourishing you from the inside out, and let nature do the heavy lifting.” All cuisine is organically sourced either from their onsite garden or from local farms in the region and plant-based, with the skilled chefs at the Ranch using their combined 20+ years of experience to create dishes that are nourishing and support you on your wellness journey. But do not let the term “plant-based” deter you. The Ranch chefs are constantly adjusting their menus based on what is fresh and in season, and uniquely craft their dishes to bring familiar flavors and their own versions of comfort foods to the table. Though Italy is known for its pasta, gelato, and pizza, its reputation for high quality, delicious cuisine extends even to the most unique wellness meals. From nutrient-dense vegetable lasagna with creamy nut-based ricotta to refreshing acai bowls, the Ranch cuisine is designed to sustain you through its active program and allow your body to detox after a decadent European trip. The best part: mealtimes are a communal affair and are used to educate and discuss ways to maintain well-balanced, healthy living long after your stay.
Located just 50 minutes from Rome, secluded among the lush sequoia trees and Italian hills sits the stunning Palazzo Fiuggi. This ancient property was once known to have restorative healing powers in its water back in the 14th century and was visited by many masters of the Renaissance – the perfect place for a restorative wellness retreat. The Palazzo invokes a sense of serenity and privacy for guests of The Ranch who have access to the property’s white-glove service, 20-acre private park, and warm hospitality. Though the dining area and fitness classes take place in a private area exclusive to Ranch guests, the bright and contemporary accommodations in Palazzo are available for you to enjoy, along with their five-star amenities. In between your morning hikes and fitness classes with the other Ranch guests, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in one of Palazzo’s indoor and outdoor pools while taking in the views of Fiuggi’s skyline. Or you could choose to unwind at the Roman Thermae (otherwise known as their world-class spa) and experience the same ancient healing waters of the Renaissance era. Even in your leisure time, wellness and relaxation abound.
The ability to recharge and rejuvenate at a tranquil retreat after a long European tour may be enough for most. However, The Ranch wants you to have more than a good experience; they want you to see transformative results in your physical and mental health. Whether your goal is to feel lighter and more energetic, increase your mental clarity, or develop a detox routine that is healthy and sustainable, the Ranch is designed to walk alongside you wherever you are and give you the tools to meet your goals. It is easy to see how the combination of robust exercise and well-balanced meals will lead to healthier living, yet many who have visited the retreat see the benefits of their stay last long after they return home. For travelers wishing for a simple detox after a long trip or those seeking a holistic reset, the wellness program can benefit anyone.
