An amazing place to immerse yourself in the beauty of yoga and Italy. Beautiful staff, great rooms, stunning swimming pool, delicious food, and ideally located for trips to nearby towns and the coast. I have a feeling I'll be going back again and again!

Well we have been to Italy before. We have been to a yoga retreat in Italy before. So we knew about the Italian approach to food, hospitality and practice.
