Perfect fairy tale yoga retreat
from France, June 2021
Such an authentic and marvellous retreat ! The 3 days we spent were amazing: Amazing teacher with a lot of knowledge and great advice (as if we were in India), Amazing and beautiful place located near Como Lake, and Amazing hosts. We had meals in a very authentic and cute Osteria. The program joins Yoga and Free time which allows you to visit the beautiful region. If you are looking for a retreat in a beautiful quite village with a great teacher, dont look further :)

"Yoga zonder de rust en ruimte is geen yoga"
De eigenaren van de B&B waren geweldig! Heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Oprecht geïnteresseerd en maakte excuses voor als de dingen niet goed gingen. Loste problemen op. Zeer attent.
Het eten was fantastisch uit hun eigen keuken bereid door dochter, echt heerlijk.
Instructrice is zeer bekwaam en de lessen waren erg goed. Ik miste echter wat connectie met haar, even samen wat eten of drinken oid . Ze was na de les direct weg terwijl zij de ‘host’ was van de retreat.

"Sehr erhohsames Retreat an wundervoller Lage"
Schöne Lage oberhalb des Comersees, romantisches B&B mit freundlichen, zuvorkommen Leuten. Gute Yogalehrerin, hat alles gepasst
from Italy, June 2021
La passione e l'amore profondo con cui Alice svolge il suo lavoro si percepiscono nell'aria. È un'insegnante speciale perché anche se in poco tempo riesce a trasmetterti la potenza e l'energia di quello che fa. Sa metterti a tuo agio anche quando si è neofiti ma allo stesso tempo è capace di spronarti con motivazione a spingerti sempre un piccolo passo più in là.
Mi è piaciuta molto.
Inoltre l'ospitalità dei gestori del b&b nel quale ho alloggiato è stata davvero eccellente.
Il posto è stupendo e non si può avere cornice migliore per rilassarsi e fare lunghe passeggiate nella natura!

"Fantastic yoga retreat immersed in a typical Italian village"
Alice is an excellent teacher and is passionate about teaching and sharing her knowledge with her students. Being the 1st student gave me the possibility to have 1to1sessions, which made me really improve. The Osteria location is just Fan-Tas-Tic and super comfortable, the hosts incredibly warm and generous, and thé food fresh, local and incredibly well cooked. As my 1st yoga retreat, that will remain fabulous memories !

"Beautiful Oasis. Terrific Yoga. Delicious Food. "
The yoga was terrific. The food absolutely amazing. The place simple heaven on earth. The accommodations clean and comfortable. I can highly recommend this place for small yoga groups looking for a group retreat with up to 6 participants.

"Yoga @ Organic Farm"
Alice and Federico are great hosts that make you feel welcome from the first minute on. The organic farm is located beautifully in the Ligurian mountains far away from any bigger city or noise, perfect for a quiet time-out! Accommodation is fine with comfy bed and modern bathroom in a private room.
Highlight of this retreat is the combination of relaxing yoga classes led by Alice and delicious organic food from own growing and the region cooked by Federico. Also enough free time to relax, read or enjoy the nature.
Alice is a Great Yoga Teacher helping though all the poses and giving great advice, also for pure beginners!
Thanks Alice & Federico!

"Unique and fantastic experience"
Alice is THE best yoga instructor I've ever worked with. Genuine, works with the essence of yoga not only the physical postures, takes care and watch your work and correct it beautifully and gently. The Pranayama class is absolutely beneficial; I've looked for Pranayama to be included in any of the retreats in Italy and she was the only one who offered it. Her Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Hatha classes are very professional and beneficial. Over and above she's sweet and helpful.
- The landscape with only mountains surrounding you makes you feel out of the planet.
- Federico is an amazing host, he represents the genuine Italian generosity and kindness. He knows what he's doing.
- Not a single ingredient was bought from a super market. Everything, and I mean everything is home made, the yogurt was from a neighbour farm, the pesto salsa was entirely prepared by Federico's mum. The vegetables and fruits from their garden, you could watch Federico bringing the vegetables with his hand from the garden. Not only 100% organic but also deliciously cooked by Federico. Don't miss his Zuccini soup for brunch.
- Possibility of making a barbecue at a lake, not far or visit a medieval town nearby. Just staying there to chill was amazing and stopped my brain from dwelling.
- Alice and Federico are very honest.
- The feeling that I am in a real farm with genuine people, eating only how made food with home produced ingredients was unique. It took my heart to somewhere it had never been before.
