Here’s an introduction to our Oomph Retreat from your coach Caroline Carr:

A Find your Oomph! retreat to re-energise your life!

What is Oomph?

"I could do with a bit more Oomph!" That's the first thing some people say when they hear the word Oomph, assuming it means 'get-up-and-go', energy and enthusiasm.

But life coach Caroline Carr, who has joined the Watermill team to create our first-ever Find your Oomph! Retreat, says: “It is about those things of course - yet it's also much, much more.

“Oomph is a deep sense of inner freedom and joy that is always there.

“You can tap into it at any time, whatever is going on in your life. It's a lasting quality that keeps you connected with your true self, and therefore aligned with freedom, balance, fun and joy. It fuses aliveness, zest, eagerness and delight with ease, flow, curiosity and wonder.

“Oomph is emotional mastery. It is the art of finding inner peace during turbulence. It frees your heart to soar and your spirit to shine.”

We’ve worked with Caroline to create a very special week-long retreat to help you find your Oomph! And where better to do so than in the magical setting of the The Watermill at Posara, with its lovingly restored buildings around a sunlit courtyard, with stunning gardens and river and millstream walks.

Set in a gentle valley with mountain peaks in the background, the mill is a peaceful haven, surrounded by the National Park of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and The Regional Park of the Apuan Alps, home of the marble mountains of Carrara. This is the heart of Lunigiana, in the North-west of Tuscany, a truly unspoilt part of Italy.

We have lovingly restored the historic buildings and created eight beautiful bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, plus two self-contained apartment suites, each with a double bedroom, bathroom and sitting room, ideal for couple or friends sharing. The bright and airy rooms are well decorated and tastefully furnished and m contain original artworks. All enjoy lovely views of the river, the gardens or the mountains.

So, come and find your Oomph! in the tranquil heart of rural Tuscany.
