Another fantastic yoga retreat at Villa Il Cardinale. It's like coming home again.
The students all loved the house and beautiful gardens. The new pool is a fantastic addition and it was brilliant to be practicing outdoors on the new yoga deck. Marina, Stefania, and Francesco were as warm and welcoming as ever. Everything went without a hitch and allowing my students to just relax, de-stress and re-charge. Everyone had a brilliant time.
I look forward to being back soon.
Thanks Marina, Stefania and Francesco!
So, where to start: the house is stunning; the photos don’t do it justice - it’s a lot bigger than it looks and had more than enough room for two families with kids from 15 - 21. Well equipped kitchens, brilliant movie projector and speakers that really made our evenings, and welcome air con in the living space. It’s on multi levels which adds to the feeling of space, and all rooms had bathrooms and almost all a balcony too. The pool was the star: really deep for diving, bigger than most and a great temperature in late August. Lots of outdoor seating places to spill out to. Formello is walkable and has a few nice places to eat plus a great gelateria and bar just as you go in the old town gate. It’s also easy to drive to a station (20 mins) to go into Rome. The parking was free but beware the lack of ticket office! Also easy drives to Tivoli (go!) and other pretty castles and hilltop towns. The owner’s communication was excellent. Thoroughly recommend for groups or families with older children.
