Easter holidays in sobriety

Sober Easter holidays

Traveling during the holidays can be tricky for people who are in recovery. Part of you wants to have fun and relax, another part of you may be struggling with the temptation of substances in a foreign environment: they might be more readily available or being away from home may cause anxiety or worries.

Easter in the Italian countryside

How would you like to spend your Easter holidays in a safe, supporting and warm environment?

Our Retreat offers a holiday experience in the countryside of central Italy at the Vellaneta estate: Easter spent in sobriety, with all the fun and local traditions that make your holidays even more special: a typical Italian Easter breakfast and lunch, the traditional “Pasquetta” (Easter Monday) afternoon picnic, and the Good Friday solemn late afternoon Procession that has been taking place in the nearby medieval town of Cagli since 16th century.

You may come on your own, with your spouse, or with a trusted friend and plan small trips to discover the surroundings.


Between 27th March and 1st April 2024.  However, If these dates are not convenient just let us know your available dates, and we will find a way to fit them in.

Accomodation and holiday activities

The Retreat provides guests with comfortable two-bed shared apartments with a private bathroom, kitchen and living in a quiet and secluded region of Le Marche, with an open view over the surrounding green hills, the foothills of the Apennine mountains. Single use apartments are available.

Besides peaceful walking trails for hiking that offer an abundance of stunning and breathtaking views, the estate offers mindful walking tours, nearby yoga classes, a weekly market, and why not, for those who love the Italian cuisine, a cooking class where you learn cooking true Italian style. We take care of all of your arrangements, from transfers to meals , our mission is to bring together sober travelers in the spirit of celebration and fellowship.

Recovery is a lifelong road, it can seem like an uphill climb, challenging and stressful at times. Therefore we also offer therapeutic and EMDR appointments. Recovery coaches and therapists are very welcome to spend the holidays here with their clients.
