Mandali Retreat Center

A Center For Transformation in the North of Italy

Mandali is like a soft breath, a prolonged exhale – where time has paused and you are held in contemplation. It´s ambiance, together with the modern and deluxe facilities for retreat, holds the beautiful promise of heightened awareness.

Only an hour’s drive from Milan, Mandali is a beautiful new spiritual retreat center built on a hilltop, overlooking lake Orta in Northern Italy. The center is created by the Mandali Foundation, a non-profit organisation set up by Dutch entrepreneurs Wouter Tavecchio and Wildrik Timmerman. Architects Gian Carlo and Matteo Primatesta have been able to translate the principles of the Mandali foundation into their beautiful design of the center. Inspired by medieval Italian villages, they used local craftsmanship and traditional building materials such as marble and reclaimed wood to create a center with cobbled streets, arched doorways and stone walls. Perched on a cliff with a stunning view of Lake Orta, Mandali radiates a tranquil and mystical, monastery-like atmosphere. Mandali is a non-profit, purpose designed retreat center. Its testament states that it can never be sold or used for commercial purposes.
