This beautiful retreat center, about an hour from Rome, sits in the Italian countryside and has just about the most beautiful outdoor yoga platform we’ve ever seen. Your daily practice overlooks the lush surrounding valley. Accommodation is in two beautifully restored 17th-century stone farmhouses, with terraces that open out to a gentle panorama of olive groves, fruit trees and stunning sunsets. The grounds are lush and abundant, with a natural spring, gardens, a pond and a swimming pool. The property is peaceful, rustic and ideal for spiritual practice. Every room is unique and tastefully designed. Selected by Taschen books as one of the “Great Yoga Retreats” (2009), they described this retreat center as “a second home that makes you forget the passing of time.” Enjoy morning and evening yoga classes with plenty of free time; therapeutic massages and healing treatments are also available. Explore the local region, which has a rich culinary heritage famous since ancient times for the quality of its food and drink—in particular its olive oil, some of the best in the world. The charming medieval village of Torri in Sabina, with just 1,000 inhabitants, is only three kilometers away. Rome is an hour and half away and day trips are possible to nearby Orvieto and incredible Assisi. Our personal chef will prepare meals from the freshest of local ingredients that we’ll share around a traditional family-style table.
