For most F**k It Retreats, prices range from €1,1995 to €1,795 per person.

The prices include accommodation, the teaching and full-board or half-board, depending on location: Urbino is full-board; Stromboli is half-board.

You’ll find the precise prices for your chosen F**k It Retreat on the page of that retreat (under ‘Calendar’). But this is what’s on offer, and what the definition means…

(Remember too that many people come on their own and then share with 1 or 2 others, who are also coming on their own.)

Triple: (sharing with 2 others, of same sex, often coming alone)

Twin: (sharing with 1 other, of same sex, often coming alone)

Double: (sharing with 1 other, in same bed, of same or different sex)

Single accommodation

A Suite: (Single or Double, only the Estate & Spa, Urbino)

Good Value

When we first started F**k It Retreats, we spent six months finding the right venues at the best prices (thanks for the negotiation tips Steve). So we believe that you’ll be getting an amazing F**k It Retreat for very good value. Do remember that what you pay includes VAT, which is up to 22% at the moment in Italy.

Do Book Early

We had an early week-long launch of our 2015 calendar in October 2014. In that one week, 40% of spaces were snapped up.

We don’t know when you’re reading this, but it’s likely that many weeks are booked up already… or certain types of accommodation (like a sea-view room on Stromboli).

We hope you find what you want, but it’s always worth booking a F**k It Retreat as early as you can.

the F**k It family

Yes, once you’ve been on a F**k It Retreat you become a member of The F**k It Club. And that entitles you to some nice perks.

So maybe you came on a F**k It Retreat in 2014, 2013 or 2012.

Or maybe you visited the Italian retreat, The Hill That Breathes, that John & Gaia owned and ran. If so, you’re also in the F**k It Club.

This is how it works, you’ll be either –

  • F**k It Club, 3 Star
    (you’ve been to one retreat).
  • F**k It Club, 4 Star
    (you’ve been to two retreats).
  • F**k It Club, 5 Star
    (you’ve been to three or more retreats).


We look after our Club members. Many Club members come back to retreats time and time again, so we’re keen to make that as easy as possible.

So we offer a variety of ‘perks’ to members, such as –

  • Finding out about the next year’s calendar before anyone else (thus getting first dibs on weeks).
  • Special terms and discounts that aren’t available to non-Club members.
  • Access to the ‘F**k It Reunion’, an annual event just for Club members.
  • Great offers on other F**k It goodies (like online courses).

The perks vary from year to year. But they’re always perky perky.


You can pay in two instalments. How much you pay, when, and in what instalments, is dependent on what accommodation option and venue you choose. We ask for an initial payment, then the second payment is required to be paid directly to the venue 6 weeks before your holiday (or before if you prefer).

We’ll give you the precise details when you book, but here’s an example:

You decide in January to come to a F**k It Retreat in Urbino in May and you want to stay in a Twin room.

The full price is €1,395. We’d ask you to pay €795 as your first instalment (you’ll be able to pay that as you book via Paypal). Then, 6 weeks before your holiday we’d ask you to pay the remaining €600 to the venue.


Please take out separate travel insurance before you come to a F**k It Retreat.

We were recommended this site by a previous guest - www.travelinsuranceguide.org.uk - though we have not used it and do not make any commissions if you do.


If you have any questions - about anything - it's highly likely that the answer will be in our F.A.Q.s (and elsewhere on this site)… please do check those before writing to us.
