If you are a teacher and would like to organize a workshop/retreat:


Chez Raz is a family-run B&B in the countryside south of Rome, ideally suited for hosting yoga holidays and retreats, and available to teachers who wish to bring their own groups all year round. We offer accommodation, catering and leisure activities.

In the summer months we provide a gazebo of 70 square meters that can hold up to 16 people for yoga practice and a swimming pool. In the cooler months and in the winter we have a small heated yurt for up to 10 people and a hot tub.

We are situated at three kilometres from the centre of Velletri and only 40 kilometres from the centre of Rome, on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and vegetable plots.

We are approximately 30 minutes from Ciampino airport and 50 minutes from Fiumicino airport.

Chez Raz has a 15000 square meter garden delightfully stocked with organic vegetables that change with the season. The property has been lovingly cultivated over the past 18 years to provide a most welcoming environment for any yoga, spiritual or health/food related retreat.
