Italy's Original Yoga Holiday Centre

Sunflower Retreats yoga holidays sunflowers

Sunflower Retreats has been offering highly praised yoga holidays for the mind, body and soul for fifteen years based in the picturesque hilltop village of Casperia, just an hour from Rome.

We're here to make your yoga holiday an unforgettable and joyful experience: Our team of qualified yoga teachers from all over the world provide the very best in yoga classes, usually on our sun-drenched yoga deck. Our guests get lots of attention from our teachers and build great bonds with other guests.

Yoga Holidays Your Way

Casperia village, Italy

Sunflower Retreats' holidays mean that even without spending on extras you can have an amazing holiday, with free bikes on which to meander through country lanes and sunny terraces to laze on and drink in dreamy views. You'll probably be pleasantly surprised at how little it costs to fly into Rome from your local airport these days too.

If you haven't got a whole week free, you can stay for just four nights. And if you're travelling by yourself, you can either share a room or choose a single option for just a little more.

Casperia offered time out from the hectic pace of travel. I hadn’t anticipated how rewarding my experience would be or how many wonderful connections I would make with the other guests, who had come from all around the world

Beyond Yoga

With the help of our local staff, we also offer a choice of holistic therapies, massage treatments and days visiting our local hot springs. There's also a wide range of activities including cycling on our free bikes, mountain treks, horse riding and more.

Or if you'd just like to chill, there's plenty time to relax, swim and soak-up the atmosphere of Italian village life inside the stone walls of our blissfully car-free village. Either way, it will be a chance to immerse yourself in the Italian way of life and admire the spectacular panoramic views of the countryside.

Non-practitioners of yoga are also welcome on our yoga retreats and will enjoy all of the other activities. A reduction of €100 will be given if you are not taking our morning yoga classes.

Supporting Our Community

responsible travel

Sunflower Retreats offers an 'alternative holiday' for people who prefer a natural, grounding and holistic holiday experience to that of big resorts and hotels. We are proud to sustain the economy of the Sabina Hills, since most of the cost of holidays is paid to local home owners and small businesses who provide accommodation and facilities for our guests. Although we have a wide range of treatments like in a spa, we are different as our approach is more holistic.

We support the principles of eco-tourism by integrating with, rather than changing, the unspoilt Sabina landscape and way of life. As one of the only centres in Europe to offer yoga vacations at a dedicated base all summer long.
