After a week’s yoga retreat in Casperia returned home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Quite literally just what the Dr ordered. A ‘Name of the rose’(esque) Italian town, with enough holistic treats and trips to transport you a little closer to heaven on earth.
I stayed in Casa Latini, which offers a magnificent terrace view of the daily differing, dreamy sunset. Comical Cristian, accompanied by energetic Alessandro, patiently attended to the individual and group’s requests and needs. The lovely Vanessa’s daily yoga was a joy to wake up to. Graceful Hannah and Simona’s treatments a glorious, personally tailored indulgence. The wholesome organic fare as healthy as you wished and consistently tasty. All wrapped up in the inspired, and inspiring, company of well travelled crazy fellow guests, (crazy as in the good kind of mad). The local people welcoming and friendly as the valley resounded to the laughter of strangers.
So glad I chose ‘Sunflower’: fabulous relaxing, authentic Italian holiday experience. Don’t hesitate, try it for yourself!
