Luxury spas, yoga and clean breathing: where to buy a holiday home that helps heal your soul


Who needs fancy spas when you have fresh air? Clean breathing is one of the latest health trends, according to the Global Wellness Summit, and we’re now seeking out lung-cleansing destinations where we can practise deep breathing while immersed in greenery.
