More information about our different locations:

The retreat Space:

The Retreat Space is made up of four houses, that are connected to make one european rustic, rural luxury estate. There are 2 swimming pools, one that is heated for the colder seasons of the year and there is also a wooden sauna on the property (for 10 people). The grounds are huge and boast beautiful gardens and views. Click here to view the space and accommodation.

Granada:

You should never leave Spain without exploring Granada, as it is a monument unto itself. We will visit The Alhambra and we will get lost in its narrow streets full of small tapas bars and handicraft shops where you will find the essence of the moorish people that lived there for many centuries.

Estepona :

Estepona town located to the west of the Costa del Sol, Southern Spain – at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja Mountains. Estepona is well known for its lovely beaches and tiny coves which stretch along 20 Km of coastline. At the western end of the Paseo Maritimo is Estepona’s charming port and harbour that is located only a short walk from town.

Estepona’s old town is full of nooks and crannies waiting to be explored, including the remains of a 10th century castle built by the Moors. Thanks to its cobbled streets and cute taverns, this part of Estepona is like a classic Andalucian white village – but right by the sea. In history and culture the town remains unspoiled and the warm and friendly people preserve tradition with pride. Estepona’s narrow, cobbled streets and quaint little shops just add to the charm of this lovely town
