Sunflower Retreats, Italy

By Hollie Wicks

This week we are sending you to the medieval village of Casperia to stay at the unique Sunflowers Retreat. The accommodation they offer their guests are unique village houses each providing stunning panoramic views or the town. Choose your home for a week from a traditionally furnished medieval guest house to a stay stay in the Casa Latini which is a renovated thirteenth century house furnished in a boutique Latin style.

Sunflower Retreat also throw in a daily yoga class and free weekly use of bikes to make your stay extra special.If that doesn’t tickle your fancy then there are plenty of other activities for you to try. Take an organised trips to authentic Italian restaurants in the neighbouring villages, and feast on farm fresh organic season fruit, vegetables and even the local cheeses. There’ll also be all the normal local specialities too which include bruschetta, panzanella, pizza and fresh pasta (yum!)

If food isn’t your thing, then have a go at salsa, swimming, trekking or horse riding. Don’t miss out – There’s plenty for everyone! If you’re still not convinced take a look at the photos below…
