Take a moment, be still……feel the gentle breeze and the last of the day’s warmth on your skin, listen to the night jar trill, and watch the fireflies as dusk descends on the valley.

Welcome to The Retreat.

Set in the Umbrian Countryside near Assisi, a place of peace and tranquillity. Casa Rosa sits in an area of great natural beauty, enjoying breath-taking views over the Tescio Valley and across to Mount Subasio where St Francis found refuge. This is the setting for a wonderful week away to recharge and restore.

Why choose The Retreat?

After searching for many years, Jo, a physiotherapist, and Ian, a tree surgeon finally found the perfect location and team to work with. Together with Ella and Alessandro at Casa Rosa, they have set-up a programme to help you escape the spinning plates, unwind, learn a little bit and laugh a lot. This retreat is not about restriction and rules but about enjoying the fabulous food, surroundings, company and the chance to rediscover old joys.

What’s included?

There is an optional programme of Pilates, Mindfulness, walking, swimming (both in a pool and freshwater), tree climbing, creative projects and massage. We aim to strike the perfect balance between rest and activity, allowing you time to sit, take in the view, read a book or chat with friends, interspersed with more focused physical and mental activities. We understand that relaxation comes in many forms.

Accommodation, airport transfers from Rome Fiumicino to Assisi (return), food and drink plus one complimentary massage will be included. The only extras are the cost of your flight* and a group meal in Assisi (should you wish to join us).

What else can I do?

Time is set aside to enable you to explore Assisi and the surrounding area, however the focus is to enjoy Casa Rosa and connect on a deeper level with the natural environment to enable you to return home, rested, restored and feeling physically and emotionally better with new skills, and fantastic memories.

How much will it cost and what do I do next?

From just £850** you can enjoy 5 days and 6 nights of joy and relaxation.
