Additional information

Sunbathing takes place by the oval pool, with its mosaic lining depicting leaping dolphins.

The relaxation area surrounding it is a natural sun trap. Lay on the sun-beds with a book and look down through the olive groves to the lake below you and far in the distance glimpse the glittering sea and occasionally Africa.

As keen nutritionists the owners offer raw food options at some meals. The food is delicious. Richard and Betty also offer on-site Massages, Holistic Therapies, Reiki and Healing that complement the retreat activities perfectly. Personalised consultations with a nutritional therapist are also available. Cost is 45 euros per hour.

The retreat is relatively isolated and car hire is recommended if you wish to explore the region. The nearest village is Periana, 4 kms away down the mountain – here you will find a variety of shops, cafés and a restaurant.

Horse riding (one hour away), visits to the hot springs and other excursions can all be arranged by your hosts.

A short walk away, within the hamlet, is a local bar (picture below) with coffee, drinks and snacks, these are also available on site from the in-house bar.

Your basic holiday includes vegetarian, vegan or raw food diet options, with one night dedicated to a trip to a local restaurant where you can buy a Spanish meal for a modest price.

A large breakfast/brunch will be served after the morning yoga class and dinner after the evening yoga class. A snack is provided at lunch time.


There are four main areas used for yoga: the Lake room, the central open Moroccan style patio, the yoga platform and the newly extended area around the swimming pool.

Morning yoga usually takes place on the yoga platform on the the hill behind the centre. Surrounded by olive and almond trees, and shaded from the morning sun, the scent of the trees and plants will make these sessions even more special.

Yoga mats, blocks, belts, cushions, and blankets are provided.
