I was doing a retreat here last week and had a great time. Weather & food were great, friendly staff and a blissful, joyful and grounding nature energy. The infrastructure is rather basic but suitable. Seminar rooms are very beautiful; we worked in the Dome and the Pavilion rooms. And they have a huge outdoor pool, which we all used for our morning swims after meditation - best way to start the day! The team prepared a fire ceremony for us and I saw that they also do swetlodges. Food buffet was lovely, fresh and vegetarian food. Some produce come from their own organic gardens. We did lovely excursions to the waterfalls, mount mottarone and the unesco heritage site sacro monte. Orta village 10min away at the lakeside is straight out of a movie; stunning to have a gelato on the mainsquare.

What a place! My husband and I came to Centro as volunteers in the month of April and had the times of our lives. After traveling the globe for 8 months, we found rest and tranquility in the gorgeous hills of northern Italy. The walk up to Centro each day was beyond gorgeous, with views of the lake and so many beautiful flowers; what a breath of fresh air. The common areas and workshop buildings are stunning and create the perfect settings to meditate, practice yoga, play music, or feel the freedom to express yourself in anyway you choose. Thank you for the space to come and reset our minds, bodies, and souls, Centro d'Ompio
