Sunflower Retreats Yoga Holidays & Retreats in Sperlonga, Italy
In May and June of last year we held our first yoga retreats at our new beachside destination. We loved it and so did our guests! We'll be back in beautiful Sperlonga in May and June this year!
Type of Event

Our most economical solution for guests travelling alone who are 'happy to share' is in a twin room with a shared bathroom with another guest of the same gender for €650 per person for rooms facing the quaint cobbled streets or €900 per person for rooms in a house with a sea view.
Single travellers may also upgrade to sole occupancy of a twin or double room with shared bathroom for a supplement of €300. We also have one single bedroom in a house with a sea view and shared bathroom for €850.
- About Sperlonga
The pretty whitewashed village trickles down a hillside to the Mediterranean sea. A maze of narrow streets and alleys, inaccessible to cars, it's a perfect companion to our Casperia base and its location, midway between Rome and Naples, makes it just as easy to reach with low-cost flights and a main-line rail connection.
Within the winding streets you will experience the daily life and history of an authentic southern Italian village, with quaint little boutiques, craft and jewellery shops, little alimentari with fresh local food, wine and vegetables, wine bars and cafés serving aperitivi, and range of good restaurants.
There are two beaches to choose from; either side of the village. The sea here is is very clean and blue, fed by fresh spring water from the nearby mountains. There's direct walking access from village down to the beaches.
Sperlonga is steeped in history having once been the summer residence of the Roman emperor Tiberius, 'the reluctant emperor', who ruled from 14 - 37AD. Archaeologists have found a series of sculptures in the cave of his villa, which you can visit by foot on Sperlonga's south beach.
We will stay in characteristic traditionally-furnished Sperlonga village houses much those like at our Casperia base. Each is used exclusively by Sunflower Retreats Holidays' guests. We have chosen delightful locations and most of the houses enjoy a terrace or balcony and great views of the sea or terracotta rooftops and characteristic village streets.
- Eating & Drinking
A delicious breakfast, included in the cost of your holiday, will be served on the beach in the famous and stylish Il Delfino. The food is locally sourced with a wide range of healthy food options.
The village has lots of great restaurants and enoteche serving delicious southern Italian dishes as well as fresh local fish. There are also lots of vegetarian options.
The village shops, which include amazing fruit and vegetable alimentari, stock a large range of food and drinks for those who want to sample some home cooking at anytime.
Morning yoga practice takes place either on the famous Truglia tower, directly over looking the Mediterranean sea, or on a terrace inside the hilltop village with views of the sea and mountains. The tower is a historic medieval building which was built as a look-out.
You will breathe the clean sea air into your lungs with views of the endless sea and horizon. Some morning classes may be held on the sheltered beach area close to where morning breakfast is served over looking the Mediterranean sea.
Yoga classes each morning, Sunday through Thursday, are included in your holiday. Optional 1‑hour afternoon yoga and meditation classes will be held on a terrace within the hilltop village with views of the sea and harbour and cost €10 per class.
Non-practitioners of yoga, travelling with another guest can opt-out of yoga classes and will receive a €100 discount.
There are optional daily activities such as horse-riding, cycling and walks which can be booked each morning at breakfast, after morning yoga.
