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 near Umbria, 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.

 
The daily programme

The yoga practise 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 morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, moving and building into a flowing and dynamic sequence. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle and restorative class. The holiday is suitable for all levels of ability.

Three delicious Italian/vegetarian meals will be served daily. On one evening, there will be dinner out at a local restaurant. Also, an optional day-trip excursion to Umbria will be available for those who would like to explore the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto (on this day there will be no afternoon yoga practice).

   
Things to do

One could quite easily while away a week of deep rest and rujuvenation here. Relaxing by the swimming pool, having a massage treatment with an excellent therapist, 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 ensuite, the other rooms share a bathroom between two rooms.

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

Single yurt accommodation is also available. There are three yurts close to the pool area with an outdoor shower and shared indoor bathroom facility. In the summer it is too hot to go in the yurts in the day but they are comfortable and pleasantly cool at night.

Rome has two airports: Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) and Ciampino. Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) is the best option for the shared group transfer. However a transfer can also be arranged from Ciampino.

Transfers

We strongly recommend that you join the minibus transfers from Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) airport which will be arranged to bring you directly to In Sabina. The price is very reasonable (and quick as it takes only 1 hours and 15 minutes from either airport) and in many cases costs less than taking the train - the exact price depends on the numbers. For example:

For 6 people in a minibus the price is €29 each
For 8 in a minibus €22 each
For 14 in a minibus €18 each
For 16 in a minibus €16 each

The earliest time a minibus can leave the airport is 3.30pm and we suggest that if you are on an earlier flight that you wait there. You will be advised of the exact meeting point nearer the time.

If there is a group arriving at Ciampino airport then a transfer from there can also be arranged for the same price.

Departure from In Sabina is by 10am on 5 August.
