During your free time indulge in a massage, relax by the pool, make time to reflect, rest or explore the local landscape.  

The afternoon session will be a mellow, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as restorative yoga, yoga nidra, pranayama, yogic philosophy and meditation.

About In Sabina

The property and grounds are beautifully designed to reflect the natural environment, making this a unique place to recharge and immerse yourself in nature.

Two lovingly restored 17th-century stone buildings overlook an undulating panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. There are three terraces where you can relax and watch the stunning sunsets. A magnificent yoga platform sits in the valley, surrounded by verdant nature and wildlife, with a natural spring and lily pond nearby.

A stroll through the house and gardens reveals many original works by local and international artists who have been inspired by their stay at In Sabina. The extensive grounds are a joy to explore, with sheltered spaces for reading, napping and meditation.  Inside, rooms are designed in a simple, natural style, a combination of old and new. Every guest room is unique. Furnishings and fabrics complement the buildings and their natural surroundings, creating a calm environment which is comfortable, practical and ideal for this healing and peaceful week.
