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 the yoga free day).


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.

There are three single occupancy yurts close to the pool area with an outdoor shower and shared indoor bathroom facility. The yurts can be warm in the day but sometimes cold at night. There is no electricity inside - just simple solar lighting. They do not suit everyone - only those who like ‘comfortable camping’.


Client Reviews

Fantastico! The teacher Amelia was fab, the group great fun, and In Sabina owner Giulia pays great attention to detail. My second visit, and not my last.
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.
Thank you so much for a truly wonderful week of yoga and getting in touch with my inner me! It has been inspirational and lots of fun too. I have learnt so much that I will now try and apply it to my own yoga practice (my new resolution is to do at least one proper practice at home per week and I now have the confidence to do that!. My downward dogs will be never be the same again now I know I should be treating my spine like a living breathing animal!
I feel very lucky to have been a part of the yoga retreat at In Sabina with Amelia. In Sabina is a very special place full of natural beauty and spiritual calm. The grounds, buildings and yoga spaces are immaculate and very well cared for with great attention to detail. The swimming pool was an enjoyable way to cool off in the summer heat and there are plenty of spaces to cool down and reflect in comfortable shady outdoor spaces.

The Hatha style of yoga which Amelia offered was exactly what I was looking for during this retreat. I feel rested, recharged, focused and strengthened. Culturally the Torri in Sabina area has a lot to offer, the hills are green and full of life and each of the hill top villages I visited were charming and steeped with history. The area around the retreat center also offers some pretty good walking and hiking options as promised.

I am very happy with the YOAS services and the management and staff at 'In Sabina' were caring, professional and sensitive to the wishes and needs of all their guests.
I have had the most wonderful week in Sabina! The atmosphere throughout was so harmonious and happy and relaxing. I never knew that one and a half hours of yoga could pass so quickly! Amelia is a fantastic teacher! I can now coordinate breath and movement, which is very fulfilling. Thank you very much for organising such great retreats.

Travel Arrangements

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.

There are many airlines that fly to Rome direct:-
British Airways

Please note that arrival time at In Sabina on Saturday 25 August is between 4.30pm and 9pm. In Sabina cannot receive guests before then. The latest departure time on Saturday 1 September 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 Saturday 1 September.
