    The week was a very pleasant combination of yoga and other activities (sightseeing, hiking. pasta workshop). Yoga classes suited well my intermediate skill level, and the chakra theme was interesting. It was great to have Gabriela as a local, competent guide, taking us around, sharing information and answering questions.

    I found small group size very cosy, and I enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of the beautiful house; walking in the nature, reading and sunbathing in the garden. Served vegetarian food was tasty.

    Yoga, nature and cultural experiences made this holiday excellent, I sincerely recommend!

    Gabriela and Cornelis are such lovely hosts, and had planned the perfect week. Lots of nice yoga in the garden, surrounded by the sounds of birds and crickets. One of the evening classes was on top of a mountain, with a fantastic view of the hills around.

    They also served amazing Italian food, and the pasta class with Gabrielas mother was great.

    We went sightseeing to some very nice places nearby, and Gabriela was a great guide.

    Gabriela had put together a perfectly planned program, but was really easygoing and open for changing it according to our needs and requests.

    The house is wonderful, situated in the forest with a nice garden full of Cornelis's art.

    All in all, for me this was the perfect holiday, with a nice mix of yoga and activities.

    Gabriela und Cornelius are very friendly and helpful people; they really open their house for us and we felt like home. The stonehouse is very well designed and we had such a big room with much space. Every room lokes very special. We really loved the silentness of the location and the possibility to go for a walk. In nearby small villages you can see real italian life - go to the old bar in the tiny village next to Porcaticcio. We liked the Yoga lessons outside on the platform and the amazing special yoga-sunset-class on the hill with incredible views! The food was very good; Valentina - the cook - tries to suit all needs like glutensensitiveness and so on....we also had a pasta Workshop with Gabrys mother! I can recommend the place if you would like to have a few days relaxing and/or when you interested in art (Cornelius offers small workshops as well) and if you want to be in company with very open and friendly people.
