About In Sabina

In Sabina, an elegant and breathtaking retreat centre in the heart of the Sabine Hills, offers spectacular views and a magical setting. Less than an hour north of Rome, In Sabina lies in the midst of the untouched Italian country side.

The property is peaceful and rustic, offering a haven for spiritual practice, relaxation and rejuvenation. The retreat centre’s grounds are lush and abundant with lovely gardens, a pond, a natural spring and swimming pool. The perfect location for stunning sunsets and nature walks.

Retreat programme

The yoga practice will be held outdoors on the magnificent wooden yoga platform overlooking the lush valley or in the serene and tranquil indoor yoga space with views over the hills and vales.

The day will begin with a dynamic flowing morning yoga class followed by breakfast on the terrace. Practice will include meditation and asana focusing on breath and alignment. After the morning session there will be time for massage, relaxing by the pool, swimming or a visit to the local village.

The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more relaxing and restorative class. There will be one yoga free day and the classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience.

Delicious Italian/vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served daily. On one evening there will be dinner out at a local restaurant. Also, an optional day-trip excursion will be offered for those who would like to explore the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto.

Things to do

One could quite easily while away a week of deep rest and rejuvenation here. Relaxing by the swimming pool, having a massage treatment, finding a quiet secluded spot with a good book or taking a walk in the stunning natural surroundings. There are nice walks from the house and even better ones just a short drive away.

The area is rich in sites of historic and natural beauty. Only 10 minutes away, the charming medieval hilltop village of Casperia is a favourite haunt for In Sabina groups for dinner out on a Friday evening.

An optional day trip to the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto, just an hour away, is also offered during the week.

Accommodation

The exquisitely restored 17th century stone buildings have been converted into accommodation and overlook a panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. The rooms are designed in a simple, natural style, with a combination of new and antique furnishings. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite, the other rooms share a bathroom between two rooms.

All accommodation is shared between two or three people with limited availability for single occupancy.

There are two single occupancy bell tents and a small camper van close to the pool area with outdoor hot showers and a shared indoor toilet closeby. The tents and camper can be warm in the day but sometimes cold at night. There is no electricity inside the tents - just simple solar lighting. They do not suit everyone - only those who like ‘comfortable camping’.

Comments

It was a fantastic holiday. I thought the retreat at In Sabina was fantastically equipped for yoga. The outdoor yoga platform that we used in the mornings had a stunning view over the surrounding countryside and the yoga room for the restorative sessions in the afternoon was also great. There were lots of areas to go and relax in the quiet and shade which was most welcome. The team were helpful and welcoming and the food was delicious.
The Yoga week at 'In Sabina' was just fabulous. Not only was the teaching excellent, I also found the support team at In Sabina extremely helpful making sure we were comfortable and happy with our stay. I had the best vegan food here. I really came away so happy from this week. I highly recommend In Sabina and YOAS.

Kate, our yoga instructor, was a real treat - an inspiration of a person, really personable and just a joy to be around for the week. Her yoga was for all abilities and she really made an effort to get to know everyone in the group. I plan to go back next year and can not recommend this gem of a company enough. we will definitely be booking multiple holidays with them again.
