Wellness week with Dr. Mark Rowe in Sardinia visiting one of the worlds Blue Zones
About 20 years ago a scientist in Sardinia set out to prove that there were more people on his island who lived longer, healthier lives than anywhere else in Europe. Every time he found a town that met his criteria, he marked it on a map with a blue felt tip. That’s how he noticed that most of these blue dots were located in the central part of the island, in Ogliastra and Barbagia: that was the first Blue Zone ever identified.
So, what’s exactly a Blue Zone? It’s a geographical area where people live significantly longer than average and with a higher life quality.
After Sardinia, other Blue Zones were discovered – they are Ikaria (Greece), Loma Linda (California), Okinawa (Japan) and Nicoya (Costa Rica).live more than 100 years and were still vigorous even at a very advanced age. Apparently, genes don’t play a big part in it: the main role is played by lifestyle – which includes everyday habits, physical exercise, relationships, work, psychological status and, of course, food.
Join our Host for the event, Dr. Mark Rowe who will do workshops with the group, where you will look at how to incorporate more of a blue zone philosophy into your own life, simply learning how to live with more vitality.
Bookings can be secured with a deposit of €200 per person. The remaining balance will be due 8 weeks prior to departure.
4 Star The Galanias Hotel & Retreat
The Galanias Hotel & Retreat is located on a gentle slope in the Marina di Bari Sardo, on different levels sloping down to the garden. It is furnished in a traditional style, with custom-made furniture and beautiful examples of Sardinian handicrafts.
The resort consists of a main building, which houses the main services and some rooms, and two rows of buildings surrounded by the garden, where the other rooms are located. It also has a panoramic swimming pool with Jacuzzi, bar and restaurant.
Due to its layout, the hotel is not recommended for people with reduced mobility.
The 42 rooms are distributed in the three buildings that make up the hotel: some are located in the main body, while most of the rooms are in the two secondary buildings, about 30 to 150 m from the main building. All have independent entrance and centralised air conditioning/heating.
The beach of Torre di Barì, which is about 700 meters from the hotel, is easily accessible on foot (there is no shuttle service).
Hotel guests will be provided, free of charge, with an umbrella and two beach chairs per room to be requested at the reception, plus one beach towel per person (each change of towel will cost € 3.00).
