Description

We epitomise the true meaning of the word “Retreat”. Firstly to physically take yourself away, to separate yourself from your normal life and your normal places. You will find us in a truly hidden paradise, separate from the reality of modern life but accessible and not remote. We are nestled in the mountain village of Cartajima, near Ronda, Andalusia Spain.

We provide beautiful spaces for you to rest, recover and reflect. You are entirely free to either spend time alone in personal, spiritual or simply mindful reflection or to join in group sessions of meditation and inspiring conversation.

We have created experiences to help you relax, restore and renew- soulful yoga, mindful walking, invigorating pilates- relaxing massage, inspiring life coaching workshops and interesting cultural excursions.

Our mission is to provide a retreat experience that is truly life changing and transformative and we believe that is second to none.

Our holistic approach always includes mindfulness and meditation, physical activities- yoga, pilates, walking in nature, gym circuits, healthy – but always delicious and innovative- plant based nutrition, creative and inspirational workshops with professional therapists and guest speakers as well as pampering beauty treatments and indulgent massage.

Our retreats are designed to always be inclusive- all bodies of all ages and abilities are welcome! The same goes for dietary requirements. Our small focused groups mean each guest can experience a personal and tailored retreat.
