Johnny and Rissa are so much fun, and are so experienced in their fields! There is no one, young or old, that I wouldn’t recommend this to.

We couldn’t have asked for a better hostess- the one and only Rissa Miller. Pampering us with her delicious food, she didn’t get a moment for herself. Not to mention she made everything from scratch, choosing the best ingredients in a very creative approach. The food was exquisite.

The poetry retreat far exceeded my expectations. Well-planned and carried out with a good balance of time devoted to poetry at the villa and time spent touring. The scenery and setting are unbelievably beautiful and inspiring. And, of course, the food was marvelous.

A wonderful workshop set in a stunning, inspirational surrounding. Every day a new adventure and gastronomic treat. Every meal was delicious, made with the best home grown / made local produce. The team and villa were amazing. Would highly recommend!

I attended the food photography and styling workshop and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Rome Retreats. From the smooth planning process and organization for my trip to the experience of expanding my photography knowledge in such an inspiring atmosphere, it was an unforgettable experience. The hospitality was top notch and the food at the villa is by far the best food you will ever have on a retreat.

The villa was a lovely place in one of the most idyllic locations I have ever experienced. The views were lovely, the rooms and the spaciousness were beyond my expectations. Our excursions were unique and well-timed, as well as informative, and allowed us to see even more of the lovely country that makes up Sabina. Even just a stroll outside of the villa in either direction revealed wonderful landscapes and sights. I still marvel at all we were able to see and do in addition to the poetry workshops and meals.

The week’s retreat was well coordinated, giving us all an extraordinary experience of the amazing Sabine countryside complete with mouthwatering cuisine and adventures that will remain long in my memory!
