The beautiful villa where this holiday will take place at sits in between Sorrento and Positano and is close enough for your pre-arranged day / evening trips to the famous Positano and Capri with a famous wine tasting experience and dinner in Positano. The villa is just far enough to relax into an oasis of tranquility and bliss but close enough for flavorful explorations. Josie has organized options to stay in Rome before and after for one to two nights and / or right in Positano after to add even more flavor to your Italy adventure.

Program

Josie will eloquently guide you through your yoga practice and help you to focus on breath awareness, body movement and proper alignment using varying yoga styles depending on the flow of energy and the flow of the class. Josie's classes are never scripted as she likes to mix it up. With each class, lift your spirits as Josie recites insightful quotes to help you add intention to your practice.

Pizza making

A Pizzaiolo professional will come to the villa and show you the traditional art of pizza making. You then can enjoy a delicious meal as your dinner, tasting a variety of pizzas made with wonderful local ingredients. The small kitchen is charmingly equipped with an authentic bread oven to make this a flavorful and authentic experience. This is included in your package.

Things to do (optional)

Treatment

Once you book, Yogidioms can set you up with the perfect treatment for you at the Villa on a non-excursion days!

Boat docks at a beautiful spot. From here, you can either take the funicular up to the charming Piazzetta, the heart of Capri town, or the bus to Anacapri, which though still touristy, is more residential and tranquil. The cost of a one-way ticket is 1.8 EUR, and can be used for the bus and funicular.

Head to Anacapri and start your day at the top of the world! At least, it feels that way when you’re up on Monte Solaro, the island’s highest point. A chairlift takes you up for 10 EUR (round-trip). While this may seem costly, believe us, the splendid views are priceless.

Another gorgeous place to get sweeping views of Capri is Villa San Michele. If you love beautiful gardens as much, this is a real gem! Built in the early 20th century by Axel Munthe, a Swedish physician, it’s home to an enchanting and serene garden that’s billed as one of the top 10 gardens in Italy. With spectacular panoramic views, dreamy pergolas, and surrounded by a variety of flowers and plants, it’s paradise! (Ticket cost is 7 EUR).

The Blue Grotto is a sea cave on the coast of the island of Capri, southern Italy. Sunlight, passing through an underwater cavity and shining through the seawater, creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern. (We will see the caves on our boat tour included in your package)

About Sant'agata Sui Due Golfi

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Naples International Airport (NAP) or Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport (FCO).You may go to Rome or Naples airport then to Sorrento train station where you can obtain transportation to Villa. Group rates can be organized in advance from the train station and split to keep cost to a minimum but there is a cost at arrival and departure.

A cost effective way to travel from Rome to Naples would be by fast train. I will guide you to book this after Christmas if this is the route you would like to take. I organize groups in Rome before to travel to the yoga holiday together on train and in cars to keep costs to a minimum.
