I travelled to Casperia in June on my own to my first ever yoga retreat. I was met from the bus and helped with my luggage up the 200 steps to the village house - my home for the next 6 days. I shared the house with 2 other solo travellers and it was very comfortable and well equipped. The... More

Excellent week in Casperia stayed in Casa Latini. Yoga, horseback riding, long walks, bicycle rides, great Italian food = perfect holiday 😊. Great location for relaxing holiday with easy access from Rome and/or from/to airport. If you plan combining Rome sightseeing - I recommend staying first in Rome as after one week in Casperia (no cars) Rome feels very busy..

The best thing about the retreat is the location. Beautiful scenery and an ancient village. No tourists, beside the yoga retreat people. A charmy local restaurant. A good place for relaxing. The yoga was for beginners and most things in the retreat were charged as extra cost, which was annoing.

The location is truly stunning. Everywhere you looked was beautiful from the cobbled streets to the lush landscapes. The food was fresh and delicious with plenty of choice. There were loads activities to do and also free bike hire. Our room was great, very charming and roomy. The friendly Sunflower Team really helped to make this retreat special too. Nothing... More

This is a very peaceful and relaxing environment, with beautiful views and the staff are so helpful and friendly. The food is fab, BUT, I only have one complaint and that is, when I arrived in my room, although very atmospheric, it was 'slightly grubby' and during a four day stay, my room was not cleaned, sheets and towels were...

I stayed in the Casa Latini house which was fabulous. Stunning views, comfortable beds, fabulous bathroom. Casperia is a beautiful village and I highly recommend anyone to visit simply to experience the way of life. I'm not particularly into Yoga but I booked this holiday through another website as I thought I'd try something different. I really enjoyed Yoga lessons... More
