"Authentic experience"

It was a very authentic experience to spend a week on Italien farm, very relaxed atmosphere, yoga classes were excellent and combination of having meals at their neighborhood. Experience of having a cooking class with Maria grandmother was very entertaining. Knowledge about the farm and life by Guiseppe grandfather and having meals and fun with people from different part of world was very fulfilling. I would recommend this authentic experience to everyone who wants to disconnect from technology and connect to yourself, recharge at this lovely italien organic farm with great people.

"A wonderful break"

The yoga and reiki took me forward in my development. All the yoga classes I went to, with various teachers, were excellent. Our hosts, and the whole atmosphere was warm, accepting and fun. I felt like I was in a special place, The farm is surrounded by mountains, it's a beautiful spot. The food was delicious, fresh from the farm and abundant.

1. The hosts and especially the volunteers were really nice and lovely people. It was easy to get to know everyone and have conversations going quickly beyond small talk. You can practice Italian with Giuseppe if you like, or just stick with English. At the same time, I had lots of space if I wanted to be by myself, with nobody being too pushy.

2. I went dining at a different place every second day which threw some diversity into the mix. Anna's food was simply great (lots of different and well-made veggie varieties). I don't eat white flour and was easily provided with alternatives.

3. The farm is really nice, with a great view, animals you can pet, lots of space, nature and chairs to relax. I did not leave the farm for almost a week since it was so nice and I had everything I needed.

4. I hadn't tried Reiki before (and tend to be a bit sceptic about things that are not scientifically proven) but it was very, very good. I did feel somehow healed afterwards and had interesting personal realisations.

5. Since I went off-season (mid April), I had a 4-bed-room all by myself and private yoga classes. The yoga teacher was very attentive and adjusted the practice according to my needs.

6. The bathroom was nicer than expected.

"Simply perfect!"

I loved staying at this farm! After a hectic period I came to rest and found peace at this beautiful place. From the first moment I completely felt at ease. I met great people and felt very welcome by the whole family. Life is so simple here, there is nothing to worry about. My room was nice, I slept well on the comfortable bed. Each morning after getting up I took yoga classes from Linda. The varied lessons ware such a joy and after that I could start my day feeling totally relaxed. After a breakfast with fresh eggs of their chickens I usually relaxed in the garden on the sunbeds or went for a hike in the beautiful area. Dinner contains delicious fresh food from the farm (onions, artichoke, lettuce and serval other vegetables). I highly recommended the Reiki treatment and oil massage! This was a lovely addition!

I love to come back again!

"Geen echte retreat"

Mooie omgeving en goed weer.

Je maakt makkelijk contact met de mede gasten.

Dagelijks yogalessen, zeker de lessen van Alice waren goed. De mogelijkheid om optioneel middag lessen mee te doen.

Laagdrempelig kunnen bereiken van de taxichauffeur Mauro om ons te kunnen brengen naar waar we willen.

The Italy Farm Stay is a very nice place. The rooms are very clean.

The Yoga with Linda in the morning is very good. She is a nice yoga teacher and she gives helpful and clear instructions. It is such a good start into the day. Also the surrounding is beautiful. There is so much to do...or you can also just relax in the garden. I really enjoyed my stay a lot!

It was such an awesome experience, i have met so many wonderful people in this beautiful landscape where the farm is located and the farm family is really lovely. Loved the food!

Yoga teachers have all been very good. Reiki with Linda is absolutely recommended, felt magical afterwards.

"Falling In Love With Italy"

This yoga retreat was «love at first sight». The farm is a piece of paradise on earth; wrapped in vivid colours and bright light. Giuseppe is an amazing person; the fact that he finds happiness in the little things has inspired me to smile widely, joyfully, truly. Maria is a great cooker and a lovely teacher, as she taught me how to make pasta on my own (until recently I could only prepare an avocado salad). Linda takes care of every single guest; she provided all the details in order to reach Sora and arranged for transport from Sora to the farm. Antonello is the «soul» of the farm; a person with vision and inner power to make his dreams come true. All of them, each one in his/her own way, contributed to making those 4 days unforgettable. Italy is love for life and life is celebrated when we share a moment; the present moment. I met wonderful people, not only the family members, but also my yoga instructor, other guests and volunteers. We all together shared a lot of moments! For me the most powerful moment was the hiking - I won’t say why, for I will spoil the magic. Dare to do it! Dare to fall in love with life in the Italian way. If you don’t know how to do it, the Italian Farm has the best teachers !

"Beautiful Property but a Bit Off"

The property was beautiful and there was lots to do in the surrounding nature areas - hikes to castles, waterfalls, into town, etc. The area felt safe to walk around alone (minus some streets in the city). The facilities were beautiful and quiet too, a full immersion in nature. I most enjoyed eating dinner at a house down the road with a stunning view of the hillsides and getting to meet guests from other places. The yoga instructor was great also, and the cleanliness and quality of the room was perfect.

"Reiki I and II training with Linda"

I took Reiki I and II training with Linda this past summer. Linda’s teaching was genuine and from the heart, and far exceeded my expectations. The experience was sincerely powerful and transformative. I am thankful for the insights Linda gave us and hope to train with her again.

In addition, the farm stay brought together a great group of warm hearted travelers and yogis of all ages from around the world. Maria’s cooking was healthy, delicious, and plentiful. The farm’s volunteers made sure everyone felt welcomed. I’d love to visit again and highly recommend a stay here.

"Relaxing retreat "

Maria was lovely and the evening food was great.

Walking around the area was nice but very hilly! The walking meditation was a good experience.

Lovely doing yoga on two of the mornings.

"Tranquility in Pescosolido"

My time at Italy Farm Stay was fantastic. I'd love to come back here again! Antonello, Linda, Giuseppe and Maria provided a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere.

I took the 'camping' option which had me in a very cool 'A' frame style tent with cot. If you're travelling on your own or with a friend - this is a fun option. If with a family - go for a room in the house as it's more convenient.

I was here for the Yoga experience where I had Linda and Camila as yoga teachers. These ladies are experienced and very professional - taking time to explain and adjust you where necessary.

I had the luck to spend an afternoon with papi Giuseppe where he took me to the orchards to pick fruit, wash my face with red wine (fantastic and funny), moisturise with olive oil and visit the family farm animals.

If you have the chance, take the pasta class with mama Maria and the Reiki with a Linda. It made my time here unforgettable.

"A lovely getaway in a beautiful setting."

Despite there being a large group of students staying on the farm when I arrived, the owners still made me feel so welcome and included me in all of the activities. Even though they were very busy, they always had time to answer my questions and make my stay very accommodating. My bedroom was just beautiful and the delicious homemade meals made it feel like a home away from home.

"Wonderful short yoga retreat"

The agriturismo is located in an absolutely part of Lazio, and Maria's food was amazing! Also, Linda and her fellow yogis taught many different types of yoga, so the experience from day to day varied.

"Serene & spiritual getaway in the heart of Italy <3"

First of all, the location is absolutely stunning (situated in the foothills of the Apennine Mountain)! Second, the staff & fellow travelers are exceptionally warm, accommodating, and make you feel like family! Communal meals and story telling make you feel right at home. The activities are also endless - yoga classes, hiking in the surrounding area, exploring the town of Sora, horse back riding, visiting the local cheese shepherd.... the list goes on!!!

"Daniel bester Yoga Lehrer"

Mein erstes Mal Yoga überhaupt und Daniel hat es geschafft, mich davon sehr zu begeistern. Durch seine ruhige Art habe ich mich sofort wohl gefühlt. Er hat mir sehr viele Tipps mit auf den Weg gegeben und ich konnte vieles lernen.

Mein Aufenthalt war ein super tolle Erfahrung, abwechslungsreich, erholsam und umgeben von tollen Menschen. Ich werde definitiv wieder kommen.

"Amazing Yoga and more"

I love my experience at Italy Farm Stay, I was welcomed very warmly and felt like at home from the first moment. The area is wonderful for hiking and to discover authentic italian life. The Yoga was very high standard and I especially enjoyed the lectures of Antonello which are of great wisdom and at the same time down to earth! Looking Forward to see you again!

"teleurstellend"

De omgeving is prachtig.

Ik was een reiziger alleen.

Gelukkig waren er een aantal gezellige andere gasten en kon ik het met de vele vrijwilligers goed vinden.

Ik heb nog nooit een slechte review geschreven.

Ben tot nu toe tevreden met de retraites op bookyogaretreats.com

maar dit keer past mijn verhaal nog geen eens in het blokje

wat vond je niet leuk.

Als je voor de verse pasta gaat:

ga niet.

Als je denkt aan kaas of wijn

ga niet

De tomaten waren wel overheerlijk.

"Fantastic stay on the farm"

I had a great time staying at Italyfarmstay. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The farm is in a very beautiful location just outside the Abruzzi National Park. To walk to town it took around 40 min. I appreciated spending a vacation in the countryside without not absolutely needing a car. Met some amazing people among the other guests and spend the afternoons with them . I stayed in a beautiful room that was renovated and decorated with lot's of care, very pretty !

Thanks to Antonello and the rest of the staff ! I will come back.

Lucy Mackey

from London, England.,

It was superb. Antonello and all of the people at Italy Farm Stay went over and above their remit to make mine and the other guests stay happy and memorable from the information given, food supplied, trips offered and tutoring on Yoga and Pasta making, I will definitely be going back sometime with my family.

Teresa

Would I recommend it? Most definitely yes especially if you like walking, being amongst animals, the countryside, enjoying good local food and staying with charming people who all work very, very hard to maintain this place is a success. It is a unique farm suitable for all age groups to experience on a budget in Italy. I traveled solo so the trip to this farm was slightly daunting for me at first, but it actually posed no problems at all and I got there easy peasy although it does take a little time.When I first arrived, I was obviously tired from traveling and felt slightly alone but by the evening soon learned that this is a very friendly warm home, whose owners truly want you to have a good holiday and enjoy yourself. The other tourists were all of all ages, mostly well traveled and from America, Canada, and Europe. My room was clean, comfortable and basic, exactly as shown in the photo’s and importantly for me, I slept very well. It was good to be woken every morning by Mr cockerel just to remind me I was on a farm instead of living in the center of London. There was a hairdryer kindly provided in my room. You can walk outside and pick pomegranates, apples, grapes and later on you’ll have grapefruits and figs too. The evening meals were exceptionally good, cooked by Maria, Antonio's Mother at the farm so it wasn’t necessary to venture further for me. All the produce and the fresh vegetables are picked that same morning. My particular favorite was the zucchini flowers fried in batter and the simple fruits like their little tomatoes and grapes which tasted so much better than London bought ones. Good, safe drinkable cold fresh water at two taps immediately outside the kitchens ( good for you to know when you arrive after a long journey) Take Mosquito repellent if mozzies like you to use especially after 5:00 p.m. The Internet is only in one small area of the offices. On route back to Rome don’t buy combined ticket for bus/metro because it only lasts 100 minutes and the journey is approximately two hours to Anagnina so time will have run out. Weather be prepared and check on Google before you travel. Soro is at the foot of Abruzzo Mountains so the weather is obviously very different from Rome. I traveled 17th September 2016 when some days it was very wet and chilly, especially at night and I was very glad of my woolen socks, pashmina, and rain mac.

The farm was lovely and the yoga was excellent. I really enjoyed my time there, especially the dinners!

Two things that could be better are: breakfast (some days it was literally just bread and jam with coffee and hot water, some yogurt, eggs and fruit included would be nice), when you want a taxi off the farm 10 euros to go just 5 minutes down the road into Sora is too expensive.

Overall, it was a fantastic trip and really enjoyed meeting the family and other guests, Antonello and his family really create a welcoming and nice enviroment, I would highly recommend it

Becca

from Italy,

My stay at the Italy Farm Stay was everything I could have dreamed of and much much more. The rooms were cozy with luxurious bathrooms and plenty of space. The meals were delicious, ranging from risotto to fresh pear pie. They provided the cutest handmade maps for hiking and exploring and a plethora of activities-ranging from a simple hike alone to a waterfall to truffle hunting with the group. There were people from all walks of life staying at the same time and it was absolutely amazing getting to hang out with all of them. But, most importantly, it was Antonello and Linda who made the trip so warm. Both have fabulous souls and I learned a lot about myself through them.

Sue

from England,

The location of the farm is good for walking and for the town of Sora. However, a car is needed to get to the start of many hikes and to any neighboring towns or villages. This costs money which we certainly hadn’t accounted for. The owner will take you on some hikes or to activities or organize a cab for you. This is not cheap. The food is average. Breakfast is included in the price. I hoped it would be a lovely meal with fresh fruit, cheese etc. It is bread and jam. If you want eggs you have to pay for each one. The evening meal is available for extra. This has some nice vegetable dishes, the pasta is the pasta you can buy in Tesco, not tasty at all, an ok meal but nothing special. If you want meat it is extra.

Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable.

There was a visiting yoga teacher called Martinella who was truly amazing.
