Yoga in a calm place surrounded by olive tress

I spent an amazing week at a yoga retreat at the B&B Chez Raz. The group was small and we could have intimate yoga sessions, very personalized and also enjoy many social moments at the table, enjoying the tasty/vegan food from Paola.
The place is very quiet and relaxed, all green with plenty of trees.
We also used some free moments to explore the nearby surroundings with the mini bus from the B&B.
Was a perfect setting to practice yoga with experienced Iyengar teacher Cristina Libanori.

The most amazing B&B to enjoy a lovely stay near Rome

I just come back from a yoga retreat with a group of students from Holland at Chez Raz. In the midst of wonderful nature we have enjoyed the great hospitality of Paola Iurilli. This is really a rejuvenating yoga retreat where the atmosphere of Chez Raz has fully replenished our energy!

Unforgettable yoga retreat around Rome

This has been my first yoga retreat and the experience could not have been more gratifying. The place is pure inspiration and tranquillity, surrounded by olive trees, adorable animals and even a swimming pool in summer. The style is rustic and simple but with all the amenities imaginable and comfort. On top of that, the morning yoga in the gazebo is just the best way to start your day and in the evening, the yurt is unbelievably cosy and comfy. In between, you're terribly spoiled by Paola, not only with all kind of attentions and kindness but also with incredible vegetarian food with fresh ingredients from her own garden. I just can't wait to come back :-)

In a word: fantastic!!!!!

Perfect week of yoga retreat. Really a life changing experience. The place is exactly what I like: a lovely home in the countryside with lots of olive trees, animals and an authentic rustic charm. There's a Yurt for yoga in cold days, and a gazebo for the warm ones. Both locations are really beautiful and great. You feel welcome and better than at home at all times. The food needs a set of adjectives I cannot even find... it's amazing and superb! All is harvested in the property and cooked by the lovely Paola. You can see and taste that all meals are made with love and a profound sense of respect and gratefulness to mother Earth. Simply incredible. I can't be more thankful for having experienced this unforgettable week.

Relaxing and peaceful yoga retreat venue

I stayed at Chez Raz at the end May this year. It was the venue for a yoga retreat that I attended in a group of 7.
Paula, the owner, as well as the rest of her family made me feel very welcome. She is warm, friendly and a very hospitable host. She lead us on a group walk through the local countryside and is very knowledgeable about the area etc.


The accommodation is really lovely. I was staying in the barn and was very comfortable -good bed, hot water all the time, well equipped kitchen, bottled water. Chez Raz is located about 50 mins (without traffic) from Fiumicino airport in a beautiful rural setting. There are orchards, vineyards and peaceful grounds to wander around and also an outdoor swimming pool to chill around and in. I loved practicing yoga in the yurt. There is also an outside decking space which we used for practice on the warmer days.
Food (vegetarian) was incredibly varied and fresh. Breakfast largely consisted of homemade produce (bread, muffins, yoghurt, granola, fruit, juices etc etc. Evening meals again were very wholesome, fresh and made with love by Paula. In between yoga practices, in our free time, we were treated to an awesome pasta making demo from a neighbour and had shopping opportunities with trips to the local market and supermarket.
Everything is very relaxed at Chez Raz. The people, setting, lovely dogs and cats, good food etc. make for a natural yoga venue and great place to holiday at. I would definitely go back again.

Absolutely fabulous!

I am an active person and I like being on the go. My time spent at Chez Raz, I enjoyed immensely. I relaxed by the pool which I realised was much needed. The yoga sessions was great physically and mentally. I kept active but at a leisurely pace by going for walks and climbing mountains and volcanas! The owner of Chez Raz was welcoming, warm and friendly. Her knowledge of food was huge and I brought some of that knowledge back home! I felt so at home at Chez Raz and I would happily go back. The time spent there went quickly as I had such a great time but because I was totally relaxed I felt I had been there longer than a week!!!

Chez Raz - lovely!

Very nice place, lovely pool and outdoor eating area, lots of home-grown and home-cooked food. Yoga is in the yurt or on an open platform - both wonderful relaxing locations. Paola the host is very pleasant and happy to drive into nearest town (Velletri). It is easy access to Rome (only 3 Euros by train). Enjoy your stay!

Yoga at Chez Raz

Chez Raz is a perfect place for a yoga retreat, the rural location promotes calm, the large outdoor space offers plenty of places for quiet contemplation and the generous welcoming hospitality of the hosts makes you feel instantly at home.


The two yoga spaces were wonderful, a yurt for cosy yoga nidra and early sessions and an outdoor platform surrounded by trees and views of the mountains, practising with a gentle warm breeze on the skin and the scents from the flowers and trees really transformed the yoga classes. Feeling great from the inside from eating delicious healthy seasonal food often picked from the veggie plots or the boughs of the trees. Paola is passionate about food and our group delighted in every meal, copying recipes and sharing ideas. There are local places to visit but Chez Raz provides plenty of space to just be! Relax by the pool, read, chat, leave feeling refreshed, invigorated and happy.

Yoga retreat at Chez Raz

I spent one week at Chez Raz in July, in a Yoga retreat. Good location (close to Rome), wonderful hospitality. The garden and the space for yoga practice make it a good place to concentrate and relax.
