Amore, amore, amore! What’s not to love about Sicily?
The island is the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, with it’s breathtaking views and delicious cuisine,
it will be a full week of feeding the heart, mind and soul. Our retreat will take place in Palermo and Mondello, which is in the Nothern part of the island.
The white sandy beaches are only a few miles away from where we’ll be staying - so you can take a dip and sunbathe everyday.
And adventures to Cefalù, Monreale and other beach towns await us. If you’re not in love with Sicily yet, we’ll make sure you do!

Join us and you will experience Sicily to the fullest. Fly to Palermo airport, where we’ll pick you up and bring you to our private villa in Mondello where we’ll spend 6 nights, and explore Sicily over the week. Palermo is located in the northwest of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Over the week we’ll visit a variety of Sicilian beach towns and villages neighboring Palermo, such as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy Cefalù.
Get ready to soak in the sun and take a dip every day, visit white sandy beaches, tickle your taste buds with an authentic Italian cooking class,
wine tasting, go on adventures and explore the endless mazes of mysterious, inviting and little cobbled streets.
Explore Sicily’s rich and colorful history, admire its beauty, eat eat eat and so much more!

Amidst all the fun, we will of course focus on you and your development throughout the week and beyond.
In these stimulating surroundings we host our workshops given by industry experts in communications, digital marketing,
(personal) branding, wellness and photography. Engage with kindred spirits from around the world; HONeys that share the same passion, curiosity, the urge to express themselves, a burning motivation, and the ambition to reach for the stars.

The HONey’s retreats are all about:
Fun, Focus & Friendship!
