Here's What's Ahead in 2017...

We've started this year in spectacular style, shaking off the winter blues with our two January yoga retreats in Costa Rica and we hope to organise more for later in the year.

Our season of yoga holidays in Italy starts in April and runs through spring and summer in picturesque Casperia, among the hills of Lazio, and by the sea in Sperlonga.

Prices for our yoga holidays - from as little as £585 for 6 nights, excluding flights - are still affordable and great value. We also offer shorter 4-night yoga retreats in Casperia for 30% off the full price.

Wonderful memories...
I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.

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

Yoga Holidays Your Way

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 stay in a room of your own for just a little more. Our yoga holidays are great for single travellers; many of our other guests are travelling solo too!

Beyond Yoga


With the help of our local and international 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 of time to relax, swim and soak-up the atmosphere of each of our hand picked beautiful locations in Italy and Costa Rica. Either way, it will be a chance to immerse yourself in the way of life and admire the spectacular panoramic views of the countryside and nature surrounding you.

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

Supporting Our Community

As one of the only yoga centres in Europe to offer holidays at a dedicated base all summer long, Sunflower Retreats offers an alternative holiday to that of big resorts; a retreat for people who prefer an authentic more natural, grounding and holistic holiday experience. We are not an isolated private retreat business; rather, our low-profit organisation helps to sustain the economies of the areas that we work in, by making fair payments to local home owners, farmers, small businesses and people who provide accommodation, meals, activities and lessons for our guests.


In this way we have supported the principles of sustainable ethical tourism since 1998 in Casperia, Italy and beyond, by integrating with, rather than changing, the area's way of life.
