Relax and Recharge

It is undeniable that 2020 posed many challenges for us so far. The good news is that the clouds have parted, the sun is out, and we’re working on another amazing plant-based culinary experience  just for you. This time we’ll be travelling within the borders of our own country to sunny Ticino, Switzerland! 

Joining us from Northern Italy are the uber talented duo that makes up Veggie Situation. Together, we have created a magical curated experience that will include stunning sunsets, a wine-tasting, cooking demos, a spa visit, amazing connections with our awesome group and much much more. 

We will work very closely with Jurgita and Filippo as well as our wonderful partner Hotel Bigatt to create three mouth-watering plant-based meals per day that are the perfect mix of Veggie Situation recipes and local cuisine from Ticino.
