FAQ on our Tuscany Yoga Retreat

Arrivals and departures

Arrival time at the house at In Sabina is between 4.30 pm and 9 pm.

Latest departure time is 10.00 am – or 8.00am if traveling by train.

As we offer a 6 day/7 night retreat, with same day arrivals and departures, we are fully

occupied preparing the house on Saturdays and are therefore unavailable to accommodate

guests and teachers before arrival time and after departure time.

As the welcome dinner is usually served between 7.00 and 8.00 pm, we advise arrival before

this time.

 

Transfers

As there is no public transport direct to In Sabina, we arrange low-cost transfers by minibus or

taxi from the airport (Fiumicino) or nearest train station (Stimigliano) for guests

and teachers to arrive at the stated times.

The most efficient method is a group transfer from the airport in an 8 or 16 seater minibus,

and it is best if guests can book flights that arrive in the afternoon. Our transfer service is

provided at the following times:

Arrivals

  •  From the airport to In Sabina – between 15.30 and 19.30
  •  From the train station at Stimigliano to In Sabina at 16.45.

Departures

  •   From In Sabina to the airport up until 10.00 am
  •   From In Sabina to the train station at Stimigliano by 8.00 am to take the 8.58 train.

We encourage groups to book flights accordingly so that you can take advantage of our

group transfer service, as there are very few trains in the evening and taxis are very

expensive.

People with cars are also asked to respect arrival and departure times, as we cannot make

exceptions.

Staying longer?

For those wishing to stay longer in the area either before or after the retreat we can

recommend accommodation. One of the most popular places nearby is the B&B La Toretta, in

the beautiful medieval village Casperia (http://www.latorrettabandb.com/en/).

Treatments are provided by a qualified therapist based at the retreat.

These are bookable on arrival and are not included in the price quoted.
