Off the tourist trail in Italy – visit Casperia

Yoga_retreat_Rome_buildingForget the stress of everyday life and unwind in tranquil Casperia. This tiny village is nestled in the stunning Sabine hills, Italy. Escape from the 21st century, with pedestrianized streets and castle like, medieval architecture.

You won’t find hypermarkets or convenience stores in this region of Italy. Food is organic and seasonal, foraged from the surrounding hills or farmed from the local fields. The cuisine is delicious and fresh. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and wild streams, it’s no wonder that the isolated village is long standing home to popular yoga retreats.
