Situated on a hill surrounded by undulating farmland and forests, the rustic and peaceful property consists of two 17th century stone buildings on 4 acres of land. Beautifully restored to reflect the natural environment, In Sabina is a unique place to recharge and immerse yourself in nature as well as ideal for spiritual practice. The buildings and grounds are very private and easily accessible.
Most accommodations are in the two 17th century stone buildings that have been restored offering an array of rooms for all budgets and requirements, from private en-suites to rooms with shared shower and bathroom facilities. There are also simple yurts for those on a tighter budget and larger groups.
Every guest room is unique and designed in a simple natural style with a combination of old and new. Furnishings and fabrics complement the buildings and their natural surroundings, creating a calm environment which is comfortable, practical and ideal for spiritual practice.
There are spaces indoors and out for yoga, meditation, music and the arts. A magnificent outdoor yoga platform lies in the valley surrounded by lush, unspoiled nature. Designed by architect Marco Antonini, its wooden platform measures 15 meters by 10 meters, with a graceful white cloth covering for shade.
The indoor yoga room, which measures 5 meters by 10 meters, has an atmosphere of serene tranquility with views over the hills and vales and is also used for meditation, chanting and treatments. Both spaces are equipped with yoga props and music systems.
The grounds are lush and abundant with a natural spring, a small lily pond, gardens and an outdoor swimming pool. The natural spring supplies the property with abundant fresh water, while the kitchen garden has a variety of fresh vegetables and herbs.
Around the buildings are three spacious terraces and a covered portico for meals. There are stunning views of the grounds, with its hillside olive groves and fruit trees and spectacular evening sunsets.
A stroll through the buildings and gardens reveals many original works by local and international artists who have been inspired by their stay at In Sabina. The extensive grounds are a joy to explore, with sheltered spaces for reading and meditation.

"I'm finally getting round to thanking you for the most wonderfully relaxing and beneficial week at your Italian Yoga Camp. I loved every aspect of the yoga which, having heard about your classes, I knew would be excellent. However it was the very relaxed atmosphere and the feeling that no-one minded if you slipped off to your room for the afternoon to sleep or read that surprised me. That very laid back environment interspersed with yoga at whatever level you felt capable of each day was the perfect mix.Beth's delicious food was unbelievable - so healthy and varied. I have many friends in New Zealand who would love to join one of your camps in this idyllic setting. And as I said, if you would like to bring a group to New Zealand anytime I could help with the venue etc- just tell me what I can do to help. It was really lovely meeting you Dee and I'm sure we'll meet again.The word precious means of great value. In life, when we find something precious, we guard it carefully and want to keep it to ourselves for fear it may become diluted if shared. In Sabina is precious, but it is meant to be shared. When it is shared, it becomes more precious, because so many of us can benefit from everything that it has to offer. The greatest gift to ourselves is to mind our physical and mental wellbeing. In Sabina offers care and nurturing for both, in the most stunning setting imaginable.My third year at In Sabina with Dee, my yoga teacher, was perfect, and there are not many trips or holidays deserve that word. Our morning meditation practice led to a delicious healthy breakfast. Time to prepare for yoga meant wandering through the gardens, and through a beautiful shady walk through tall bamboos, then happening upon the amazing platform. I do think this is the crme de la crme of yoga spaces. It is an elevation perched beautifully in the side of a hill, with views only of surrounding fields and mountains. The only sounds are distant cow bells and birdsong. Two and a half hours later, and we wander back to eagerly peruse the dishes for lunch, prepared from produce grown in the gardens of In Sabina, and presented beautifully on platters atop wooden barrels.The most magnificent table of one long piece of wood is soon laden with delicious goodies and provides the space to chat and get to know those travelling the same road. Afternoons can be spent reading, relaxing, sitting by the pool, wandering the property, ambling into the local village for coffee, or simply reading the glorious books you never get time to look at when home. Then it is time to meet in the yoga room which has a magnificent view of the everchanging sunsets. Here we can do some feline stretches or literally dance to the beat of our own drum with Dees wonderful selection of music.Thereafter, we have dinner, when you can have a glass of wine if you are so inclined, or our ritual of Green and Black chocolate to feast upon with Peppermint Tea. Candlelit surroundings create the most restful atmosphere, and our laughter and stories can probably entertain the local villages as the countryside settles into sleep. The magic of In Sabina for me is Dee, as she creates the space to share or meditate, to dance or to deepen the yoga experience. It is Precious in its truest form. And it does need to be shared."There is a glorious sense of peace that settles into your very core upon entering the world of Sabina. The peace of the olive trees, butterflies, climbing roses, gentle hillscapes and the wise old oak trees start to penetrate your soul like a balm. To treat your body to a stretch suspended out over the countryside to the sound of birds calling and frogs croaking, to enjoy delicious wholesome food in company from the incredible wooden table, to refresh yourself with a swim by the pool after a doze in the shade is to replenish yourself utterly.Dees unique approach which combines the inner private explorations of yoga practice combined with a joyous sociable dance element is the perfect tonic for any weary wanderer. I wish I was there!"
"The most magical retreat! We had a fabulous trip beautiful location, great weather, top of the range generating yoga, delicious food, lovely group of people, lots of laughs and deep moments. All in all a perfect trip."
"I had an amazing week on the holiday. Everything was above and beyond my expectations yoga, location, company and food. I dont think the pictures do this place justice because it is beyond gorgeous, set in the most stunning Italian countryside and the energy in the place is amazing.Dee is an amazing teacher and mentor and lots of fun to hang out with, she combines yoga, meditation, dance and spiritual side of the practice perfectly. I meet some great people on this trip, we did laugh a lot and that's good for the soul. I came back to Ireland feeling like I was recharged."
"From the moment we drove through the beautiful gates, we were embraced and nurtured by our hosts there, and by our wonderful Dee. The ambiance, camaraderie, delicious organic food, early walks on the dewy grass to glorious yoga at the stunning sunsets, made for a pretty perfect week.There was no need to travel far from Sabina. We had everything there to nurture mind and body. Both came together as one whether on the mat or breaking bread. We mindfully made our way through the finely tuned variations that Dee can bring to morning and evening sessions. I smile when I think about returning."
