I have just returned from an amazingly, beautiful week in Sperlonga. Hannah was our yoga teacher and therapist and what a brilliant person she is on both counts.
I have been at Casperia which I loved but with the sea, Sperlonga was spectacular even though some days the weather was a bit off colour.
The location is awe inspiring, the steps are a killer around the town but there is always a price for beauty. Fabulous food in the town, we ate good food everywhere. The Centre Storico is lovely, no cars, no noise.
Try to eat at the restaurant by the marina, its really good, try also the overlooking the sea, the name escapes but it has blue awning outside.
Enjoy Sperlonga my fellow yogis. Om Shanti.
A truly relaxing week of new experiences with lovely people. Casperia is a beautiful place to reconnect with yourself.
