"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.

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!

"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 !

"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.

"a beautiful experience"
I liked the people, the warm welcome, the tranquil sourroundings and the classes with Linda. Giving my first ever Reiki treatment was a special experience.
Thank you Linda, Antonello, Giuseppe and the volunteers for making my stay so special and worthwile.

"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!

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:
Als je denkt aan kaas of wijn
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.
