"Not a retreat "
This is advertised as a retreat but it is not. It is in a beautiful location on a farm and Antonello provides perfect directions to get there. It is a nice place to chill out and relax and the food is fresh from the farm which is a nice perk. However unless you want to hike everywhere it is relatively inaccessible so you need a car to get around and visit the surrounding areas and national park. Also it is advertised as a retreat and it is not, it is more a farm stay/guesthouse/B&B where you do yoga in the morning. Rooms are spacious and there are lots of volunteers working there also. Everyone very friendly and Antonello and Anna are amazing hosts.

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.

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.

"Wonderful place, amazing yoga classes and great food!"
We enjoyed our stay so much! First of all, we would like to compliment Greta for her mindful yoga classes in the morning. Such a warm and caring teacher, very involved with the students.
The farm is beautiful and the surroundings as well. Antonello really made sure to provide and take care of anything we wanted; rooms, activities, planning etc. There was so much to do, we wish we could have stayed longer! The additional option of a Thai massage and Reiki session were absolutely great, would definitely recommend.
The shared meals (with such great food) was also a nice feature of the retreat. A warm and welcoming family; we hope to see you again.

"Amazing rustic experience"
The hosts are a family and they welcome you as one of their own, sharing conversations and meals together. They were very good at managing the various dietary restrictions and allergies of all the different guests. Staying here is a truly Italian farm life experience, getting introduced to the herbs, bee-keeping, wine-making, etc.
My yoga instructor, Aviv was so accommodating and individually customized exercises for us based on our needs and restrictions. I highly recommend

"Un paradisio :)"
My stay at Italyfarmstay was a paradise for me, simply unforgettable!
Antonello ha creato proprio... un paradisio :)
I didn't expect to discover such a warm, familiar and pleasant atmosphere. I couldn't say what I enjoyed most, between the morning yoga classes in this sublime place in the nature and with a magical teacher, the hikes in these impressive mountains, with these waterfalls, or the moments shared at the farm during the meals or the free time, with exceptional people (both the hosts and the volunteers and other participants).
GRAZIE to Giuseppe for the magic oil, his passion and patience in sharing his secrets about nature and plants with us ;).
I am and will remain infinitely grateful.

"Beautiful part of Italy but mixed experience at the farm"
I had a mixed experience staying here.
- A really beautiful part of Italy, the mountains are incredible and the nearby waterfall hike was lovely as was the nearby village of Pescosolido.
- I really enjoyed meeting other guests staying there and we had great fun chatting in the evenings and exploring the nearby area.
- the yoga instructor was incredible and she really made the sessions special.
- my room was fantastic and beautiful.

"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 !

"Vier besondere Tage in Italy Farm Stay"
Es waren lediglich drei Nächte, die ich in der Farm verbracht habe und doch hat es sich auf eine Art zeitlos angefühlt. Man taucht in eine Welt puren Lebens ein. Giuseppe, Antonellos Vater, teilt sein Wissen über Kräuter und bereitet einem Tee, während Maria süß-saftige Feigen serviert. Alle Sinne werden wach: man schmeckt die Kraft der Natur in den tiefroten Granatäpfeln, man blickt in die Weite über die sanften Hügel der Abruzzen und spürt dadurch innere Weite, man hört den Eseln zu, wenn sie sich über das Leben austauschen, man riecht Erde und findet Erdung, man spürt die Wärme der herbstlichen Sonne, wie eine schützende Umarmung, die einen umhüllt und ganz ruhig und dankbar werden lässt.

"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!
