The agriturismo Il Giardino del Nonno (Grandfather’s Garden) is a place magical and simple at the same time, built around a beautiful villa on the sea with large flowered terraces enriched by two hot thermal pools, sun terraces, hydro massage and natural saunas and steam bath dug in ancient tuff caves. All the rooms are nicely and organically tucked in along the paths of pomegranate, fig, orange, lemon and other trees, and have each separate entrance and either a terrace or a balcony. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and bright in color, all equipped with TV, air conditioning and fan. Peace, silence, and the constant smells of nature are the ever enchanting components of this place. The views of mountains and sea intertwine. The restaurant of Il Giardino del Nonno is one of the highlights of the retreat.

The morning and evening yoga classes will be held either on the outdoor platform overlooking the thermal pool, beach and island of Capri, or in the spacious and comfortable Sala di yoga just next door. It is a truly magical experience to re-connect with yourself on your yoga mat while simultaneously connecting to such an Idyllic landscape.
