About us

Shakti Retreats

A dream come true


When two dreamers meet, anything can happen. 
And so it was for us, Manuela and Marco
in our endless desire for discovery and travel, we decided to chase a dream and give life to Shakti Retreatsin the magnificent city of Alghero,


In Sardinia, a land rich in history and natural wonders, we wanted to create a little paradise, where you can experience a true connection with nature and with the deepest part of you. We want to offer you a truly transformative journey, a vacation of relax in our enchanting villa, immersed in the peace of the island.
