(A full breakdown of each day schedule of yoga & meals is listed on the website)



Your place is secured and reserved by paying a minimum non-refundable deposit equivalent to 30% of the total cost of your holiday.
This deposit is non-transferable.
The balance 70% payment is due no later than 8 weeks before the day you are due to arrive.

If we do not receive your balance payment, your place may be given to another guest.

Payments can be made by BACS transfer directly to Julie Matthews or Paypal or Debit/credit card via our website: www.rosmarinoretreats.com .

Last-minute (less than 8 weeks before the commencement of the retreat) bookings must be paid for “in full” at the time of booking.


Cancellation will be applied when we have received written notice and responded acknowledging the cancellation.
If you cancel your retreat:
Any refunds allowed may incur a 3% processing charge and less any bank charges incurred (subject to payment method).
If in the unlikely event Vitality Writing Retreat Italy brought to you by Vitality Centre LTDs must cancel the retreat – we will refund the full cost of your retreat paid to us. We will not be liable for any other costs outside of this.


Flights and transfers travel are NOT included. Please make your own arrangements for this – we can help co-ordinate this if needed, to make this stress free!
We recommend flying into Pisa which is located just over an hour away from Rosmarino. (Genoa is 1.5 hours away and Florence just under 2 hours). We will assist where possible to link participants to facilitate common arrival times and potential shared transfer – by taxi (with our lovely English speaking driver, Maria) or via free collection from Gragnola train station (direct train from Pisa costs €9 and takes about 1.5 hours). Depending on train times to Gragnola, Aulla is another option with fast trains from Pisa – we can arrange a transfer from there (about 25 mins from the villa). If you choose to hire a car we can provide detailed driving instructions.


It is a condition of retreat booking that personal travel (accident and medical) insurance is taken out by the participants. Cancellation insurance is also recommended, for any circumstances where you or Vitality Writing Retreat Italy brought to you by Vitality Centre LTDs have to cancel the retreat.
Specifically we do not accept any liability for cancellations, delays or changes caused by war, threat of war, terrorist actions or threats, closure of airports, civil strife, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems to transport, staff cancellations, unforeseen changes in your personal circumstances or other events beyond our control. We and the involved parties, such as your yoga instructor, are not liable for any injuries you may incur. Yoga classes are undertaken at your own risk.

Whilst on retreat you must take reasonable responsibility for the safety and security of your personal possessions and that of the property. Care must also be taken in the pool area and land surrounding the villa. The retreat organisers cannot be held responsible for any circumstances beyond their control. The use of the pool, the land around the property and participation in any trips is entirely at your own risk.


Welcome supper, brunch and dinner on all full days and departing breakfast are included and all refreshments, juices and snacks are provided for the retreat duration. We will ask in pre retreat communication for information on food preferences and allergies.


We require completion of a pre-trip registration form which includes any current medical (physical and mental) health details, key past medical history, medication and allergies. This will allow us to ensure your safety during retreat and have medical information (and emergency contact information) for any unforeseen circumstances.
Specifically, it is your responsibility to let your Yoga Instructor know if you have any injuries and to be mindful at all times of your own body’s capability during the retreat. If you experience any injury or discomfort during any activity during the retreat, then you must desist immediately.
