Accommodation

Finca Parrilla surrounded by a large “Alhambra Garden”, overlooks the Natural Park and the Mediterranean sea, with small fountains, orange trees, apricots, mangoes, figs, olives and a small vineyard, providing the perfect setting for tranquility.

The Finca is a property, offering a combination of elegant accommodation and beautiful surroundings. It consists of two houses, lovely rooms, a swimming pool, yoga facilities and a small Maria Chapel for silence and meditation.

The Hikes

We will hike every day in the beautiful mountains of Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama, located in the province of Malaga / Granada. The Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park is a mountain group filled with mountain peaks, streams, rivers, beaches, trails and cart roads.

From the coast of the Mediterranean, the mountains break up to the horizon with a spectacular array of peaks reaching up to 1500 meters above sea level. Here is lush nature with a unique plant kingdom. On many of the tours you can see the white medieval villages and the blue Mediterranean as far as the eye can see.

The hikes take place in ancient historical landscapes and on these mountain paths and country roads people have throughout history brought fish from the coast to the fish market in Granada. The hillsides are covered with aromatic plants such as rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, lemon thyme, mint and lavender, and there are great opportunities for us to meet mules, donkeys and goats on our way.

We start our walks every morning from Finca Parrilla and get back for a delicious lunch in the garden patio.

When the program is complete, guests have walked 4-6 miles, practiced yoga every day, relaxed and taken in the healing effects of nature on the body and soul. Guests travel home with inspiration and better health!

The trip is suitable for those who are in good physical shape and enjoy an active and experiential holiday. It is required that you have experience walking in hilly and rugged terrain with ascent. Not suitable for beginners or if you are very scared of heights.

Yoga

Nothing is like doing yoga in the open air. The breath becomes free, the perspective becomes larger and one can feel that the body is filled with life energy. Yoga is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physical form and you do not need to have experience with yoga before. Here you work on your own level and with your own starting point. We explain the exercises clearly and adapt to your individual needs.

The practice will be inspired by Ashtanga and Hata yoga. We will work through the whole body. In the end of the practice, you will be invited to a guided relaxation to release tension.
