    The Yoga & Pomodori retreat was absolutely fantastic - the perfect combination of a healthy, cultural, and foodie holiday experience. The Bed and Breakfast of Bagni Vittoria, where we stayed throughout the retreat, has stunning beachfront views and is very comfortable, and Luigi and his team are great fun and super accommodating.The food was delicious and used fresh, local ingredients and produce - we were able to sample all the best of Abruzzo's cuisine almost everywhere we ate, with different foods for different palates. The food was also part of the cultural tourism portion of the retreat, with visits to wineries, honey farms, and so on, in addition to archaeological and historical tours.In terms of the yoga classes, there was something for all style preferences, and the instructors were great at instructing people with varying levels of experience. The yoga class venues varies- by the sea, at the mountains, next to the castles or ancient ruins were truly inspiring! We got to do outdoor aerial yoga, which was incredible!I have to acknowledge Fiorella, the organizer, who is just an absolute star - her knowledge about and passion for Abruzzo and for yoga truly made the trip what it was. She was flexible and accommodating to people's needs, and created an environment where everyone - not just the guests - felt relaxed and like part of one awesome, multicultural family. Such a memorable experience, and I definitely hope to do it again next year!

    What an amazing week I just had... Hard to let it sink in...!! I've made new friends, all excellent!, my yoga has improved so much thanks to the wonderful Sergio, I've swum in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic, sometimes 4 times in one day!, I have eaten some of the best food of my life, watched sunrises I couldn't believe were real, hiked through the mountains with excellent guides, and thanks to Fiorella, fallen in love with Abruzzo forever. Grazie mille per tutto. I will be back!

    Thank you Fiorella and Yoga & Pomodori for eight marvellous days in Vasto, surrounded by nature and in good company! With our wonderful teacher Sergio Gambetta, every morning we did outdoor yoga by the sea – such a treat – and then followed with the yummy breakfast at Bagni Vittoria B&B. We discovered beautiful places; the Majella National Park, the Temple of the Samnites, and the San Martino Gorge, and did yoga there too, tree pose under the trees!. We had gorgeous food prepared with passion: Zi’Michele’s agriturismo where every single, delicious thing his family put on the table had been produced by them; the fish and seafood in the traditional trabocchi restaurants; the award-winning Cantina Fontefico where we had some fantastic wines and where brothers Emanuele and Nicola explained how they made organic wine; and the home-made food of Signora Gerde. Bagni Vittoria, where every room has a sea view, was the lovely setting for our retreat. We had a great little group and new friendships were born.

    The retreat was an amazing experience. Although I'm Italian, I discovered awesome places, I ate delicious local food that I had never tried before. Even if I'm a beginner, I loved the Yoga Lessons and by the end of the week I was able to do inversions even in aerial yoga. I found all the staff very professional. I will recommend this retreat to anyone. Such a special vacation!

    The Y&P for foodies retreat was fabulous. For me practicing yoga in unique ancient places was the highlight of the retreat. I even got to try aerial yoga outdoor, right by the seaside. The food was superb, authentic, carefully selected and super local. If this were not enough, we also made home made pasta and the traditional tomato "conserva" guided by amazing local people and by their passion for their jobs and traditions.

    Hard to describe in a short message the delightful experience we had at Yoga & Pomodori. The yogis we met were lovely and patient with us. The locations chosen for the yoga lessons were so inspiring!. This unique experience was supported by a wide variety of excursions, which gave us an opportunity to discover the extremely friendly and proud people of this hidden Italian gem that is Abruzzo. We could feel the PASSION that persons can still put in their job and their life: a passion found in the farmers we met, the chefs we had the pleasure to dine with, the exceptional wine producers we visited, the young and skilled archeologists that supported our visits, or the 'bike explorers' that, thanks to a mountain-bike with a little trick (an electrical engine support) made me finally ride again after too many years... Every single moment at the retreat venue and in the region has been an unforgettable gift, shared with special persons. We have nothing more than saying thank you, thank you to everybody but more than all to Fiorella, the real 'mastermind' behind this all. Such a very special person she is! If everything was perfect, every moment so unique, every person so exquisite, this all was by far thanks to that brilliant mind and special soul... Once more thank you Fiorella: you made of our holiday an unforgettable experience!
