About In Sabina
In Sabina, an elegant and breathtaking retreat centre in the heart of the Sabine Hills, offers spectacular views and a magical setting. Less than an hour north of Rome near Umbria, In Sabina lies in the midst of the untouched Italian country side.
The property is peaceful and rustic, offering a haven for spiritual practice, relaxation and rejuvenation. The retreat centre’s grounds are lush and abundant with lovely gardens, a pond, a natural spring and swimming pool. The perfect location for stunning sunsets and nature walks.
The daily programme
The yoga practice will be held outdoors on the magnificent wooden yoga platform overlooking the lush valley or in the serene and tranquil indoor yoga space with views over the hills and vales.
The morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, moving and building into a flowing and dynamic sequence. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle and restorative class. The holiday is suitable for all levels of ability.
Three delicious Italian/vegetarian meals will be served daily. On one evening, there will be dinner out at a local restaurant. Also, an optional day-trip excursion to Umbria will be available for those who would like to explore the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto (on this day there will be no afternoon yoga practice).
Things to do
One could quite easily while away a week of deep rest and rejuvenation here. Relaxing by the swimming pool, having a massage treatment with an excellent therapist, finding a quiet secluded spot with a good book or taking a walk in the stunning natural surroundings. There are nice walks from the house and even better ones just a short drive away.
The area is rich in sites of historic and natural beauty. Only 10 minutes away, the charming medieval hilltop village of Casperia is a favourite haunt for In Sabina groups for dinner out on a Friday evening.
An optional day trip to the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto, just an hour away, is also offered during the week.
Accommodation at In Sabina
The exquisitely restored 17th century stone buildings have been converted into accommodation and overlook a panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. The rooms are designed in a simple, natural style, with a combination of new and antique furnishings. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite, the other rooms share a bathroom between two rooms.
All accommodation is shared between two or three people with limited availability for single occupancy.
I had a wonderful week at In Sabina Italy with the lovely Jaya Jaks, there were six of us and we all got on very well. The house, gardens, food and staff were all wonderful. Jaya adds a dimension to the group which is very welcoming and inclusive with amazing Yoga, encouragement and warmth, we all shared some great stories and had great laughs. I would highly recommend the In Sabina Retreat.Freda
The holiday was one of the best I've had in a long time. The location was stunning and I really felt at home for a week. Jaya is a warm and charismatic teacher and really helped the group to come together. Everything was perfect!Martha

Just to say thanks very much for your help in booking this holiday. I had a fantastic time...Jaya Jaks was a great teacher and a lovely person. So pleased I did this.Tracey
In Sabina was a beautiful setting. Fantastic group of people. Staff were friendly and very accommodating - we got the opportunity to make pasta on-site. I loved doing yoga every day and Maurizio was an excellent teacher. I enjoyed the massage from Emma. The food was lovely, and considering I'm not veggie, I felt great after the holiday. A very enjoyable and relaxing holiday, just what I needed. I will consider another in the future.Gillian
We had a wonderful week at In Sabina - what a gorgeous place. Our yoga teacher Amelia was great and the whole thing was a very positive experience for someone who doesn’t do much yoga! The admin side of things ran so smoothly too - no big fuss, just simple, clear and timely emails that made for a stress free holiday, thank you so much.Ali

It is a good idea to book your flights as early as you can for the cheapest deals. It is best to take a flight arriving between 12 midday and 4pm.
Rome has two airports: Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) and Ciampino. Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) is the best option for the shared group transfer. However a transfer can also be arranged from Ciampino.
Please note that arrival time at In Sabina on 19 May is between 4.30pm and 9pm. In Sabina cannot receive guests before then. The latest departure time on 26 May is 10am.
We strongly recommend that you join the minibus transfers from Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) airport which will be arranged to bring you directly to In Sabina. The price is very reasonable (and quick as it takes only 1 hours and 15 minutes from either airport) and in many cases costs less than taking the train - the exact price depends on the numbers. For example:
For 6 people in a minibus the price is €29 each
For 8 in a minibus €22 each
For 14 in a minibus €18 each
For 16 in a minibus €16 each
The earliest time a minibus can leave the airport is 3.30pm and we suggest that if you are on an earlier flight that you wait there. You will be advised of the exact meeting point nearer the time.
If there is a group arriving at Ciampino airport then a transfer from there can also be arranged for the same price. Departure from In Sabina is by 10am on 26 May.
