WHERE. . . .
Join me in this tranquil palm fronded oasis set in 30 acres of citrus and olive groves amidst the dramatic, semi desert countryside with imposing mountains and dazzling sea. This is the perfect spot to support peace, relaxation and practice – and personally one of my favourite retreat places ever! Finca del Alamo is on the edge of the Cabo de Gato National Park and Almeria airport is only 30mins away.
You have the option of choosing to share a twin room or go solo. Every room comes with an ensuite and some with their own terrace and kitchenette area. All rooms are beautifully spacious and well equipped with plugs, adapters, lighting and chargers etc. All towels provided and body wash in all bathrooms.
FOOD & DRINKS
All meals are a delicious vegetarian spread served up buffet style, with lots of choice. The retreat space use lots of fresh local produce. There's regualr fruit and biscuits and tea and coffee available. Post morning practice we have a buffet breakfast full of all the delights to nourish and satisfy. be a substantial brunch. Late afternoon leisurely lunch and our evening meal post evening practice around 7:30sih every day.
Alcohol won’t be served with the meals, but there is an honesty system for those who fancy a glass wiht dinner.
WHAT WILL I NEED
Not much, just what ever you like to move in, your day wear, there's pool of course (actually there's 2) but it's really about letting go of what you need and just letting yourself be, so if you wear the same yoga gear every day then great!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Located in the lush setting of the Andalucian hills we will retreat away from busy schedules and loud brains. The plan is to take a step back from all to be held and noursihed in all the ways. I curate these retreats to really offer a full space of letting go, the practices will be kind and supportive with a lot of time to serve what you seek. We will talk & work out each f our seeking for the days we have, but mostly the idea is to reset turn back inwards to self and FEEL GOOD!
THE RETREAT SPACE
The venue sits in the semi-desert landscape amid lush gardens, its architecture echoing ancient Mediterranean civilizations.
It consists of the main house the ‘Finca’, which won awards in the 80s for its striking modernist design, and a group of converted traditional buildings, the cortijos. The cortijos are just a couple of minutes walk from the main house and next to the yoga studio.
There are shared social and quiet spaces and two eco-pools, one at the house and one with the cortijos.

HOW TO GET HERE

ARRIVAL / LEAVING DAYS
The retreats will be ready for us by 3/4pm on our arrival day and we will plan to leave around or before 11am on our leaving day.
They can be a little flexible on this if we need to be.
Once your deposit is paid this secures your place and is non refundable (KIND OF), in the case that either you OR I manage to refill your space on the retreat I am happy to return this deposit to you.
2 months before travel 100% fee must be paid to keep your space, once paid this is non refundable unless again the space is refilled. If the fee is not paid I have to then offer your place to anyone waiting to book on.
I hope this is clear and fair.
