It was a sunny and clear day, so amazingly pure, we had a nice pleasant walk in the historical centre of Assisi, which look like old time, very well kept and with small shops where to do some good shopping. The all energy is something to experience, it... More

My experience at this retreat will hold a special spot within my heart and soul for the rest of my life. I felt peace, acceptance and contentment that I have never felt before in my life. The natural beauty of Umbria surrounds the comfortable farmhouse making it an ideal place for peaceful meditation and reflection. I learned that I can... More

My experience at Assisi retreats was just wonderful and the setting idyllic. The farmhouse, surrounded by beautiful mountains was the perfect setting for a meditation retreat. Each morning we awoke to the sounds of birds singing and the peace of nature..it couldn't have been more serene. I spent 5 days at the centre and each day had a very gently... More

I have just completed my third stay in three years at Assisi Retreats and can look back again at a wonderful retreat experience. The place has become a regular on my calendar as it provides for me the perfect setting to allow the mind to settle down and to enjoy a deep meditative experience. The center is located in a... More

I would like to share the wonderful spiritual experience I had at "Alle Porte del .Paradiso". We were guided by our coach Katharina Daboul through meditation practice, followed by dance movements, teaching us how to connect with all that surrounds us, getting in touch with our inner self. I also had a session of Reiki and Life Coaching, which brought... More

I enjoyed every minute of my stay in this blessed place. The hostess Katharina was an angel . Peace and love can be found there. It is very difficult to describe my experience because it is in my heart and soul. I wish I could stay longer and I certainly will go back.. I want to express my gratitude to... More

I have enjoyed both my stays at Assisi retreat, the first at 2012 and the second at 2013. I went there to find connection to my inner self, enhance my meditation practise and simply to enjoy beatiful surroundings and silence. I was greeted with wonderful atmosphere and lovely surroundings. I particularly want to thank Katharina Daboul for her kind, wise... More

My experience at the Assisi Retreat was sadly disappointing. It would seem a large part of the value of such a retreat relies heavily on the retreat leader, in this case ours was Noemi. Regrettably- from looking at the glowing past feedback - it appears Bruce/Ruth who started the retreats have lost touch with what happens 'on the ground' so... More

We thank and welcome all reviews, however this review is intentionally vitriolic along with her husbands that follows. What the reviewer forgot to mention is that Noemi received personal news of the death of a family shortly after their arrival. She continued to help them with all their needs with a loving and open heart. Our service is one of... More
