    "Beautiful decorated and well equipped house, located in the hills with nice views over the valley. Lovely garden with terraces, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and outside area for the body massage.We stayed a long weekend for an all-in yoga weekend and we had a wonderful time. We all felt refreshed and energized.I would recommend this place for both yoga beginners and advanced and for anyone who wants to be in a superb setting and surrounded by warm and enthusiastic people, such as the owner, cook and yoga teacher.The perfect location and way to break from the hectic back home."

    "It was an excellent stay. Yoga was always a bit of a wishy-washy thing to me. However, after a couple of intensive classes, I am totally into yoga with guidance of a good teacher that knows what you need and expect. Unique Yoga has everything that I wanted! "
