Schedule

In this 5 night/6 day adventure you will experience the beaches & mountains of Spain like a local. Mornings & afternoons are spent practicing yoga and the days are spent exploring and relaxing. There'll be two guided hikes; one in the beautiful countryside nearby and another in the much loved Alicante mountains. There'll be time for a 3rd self guided walk along the coast to our neighbouring town or perhaps you'd like to join the optional bike ride, cookery masterclass or book some wonderful therapies?

This balanced adventure allows you to simply be present & still in nature, to explore nearby and yet get the rest & recovery needed from daily life.

About This Event

Yoga and Hiking are the perfect combination! Whilst hiking is great for the heart and lungs it’ can create muscle tightness and fatigue. But, with the help of twice daily yoga, you flexibility & strength will improve, you'll increase your mobility, rest & realign your body and improve respiration with deep yogic breathing. Hence the gaps left by hiking are perfectly balanced by yoga. Perfect!

Venue Highlights

Beautiful 300 year old Olive farm that's been owned by the same local Spanish family for the entire time. The current generation of owners renovated the farm into a tranquil & traditional country house hotel with 20 spacious double rooms, a pool in the garden, small gym & sauna and onsite restaurant.

The hotel sits at a the very spot where the countryside meets the edge of town & so we have far reaching peaceful views to the mountains & sea and yet, we're just a 10 minute easy walk to the nearby town of Altea & 25mins to the sea.

Accommodations

The hotel has 20 spacious, superbly equipped rooms with either a double or twin beds. Each room is equipped with hot/cold air-conditioning, WiFi, safety deposit, a small fridge, TV and a daily maid service to keep everything fresh & sparkling. Every room has private ensuite bathroom with hairdryer, lovely fluffy bathrobes, plump towels and Oliva del Mediterraneo complimentary toiletries. If coming on your own you'll be given your own ensuite double room for a simple supplement of £75 for the retreat .. unless you'd like to bring & share with a friend?

Breakfasts are buffet style with wholesome cereals, egg dishes, Spanish cold cuts & local cheeses, yogurts (inc. dairy free), fresh fruits, juices, sun kissed tomatoes & avocados, selection of breads, breakfast cake, infusions & teas. Gluten & dairy free dishes are available too with advance notice.

We take supper ‘at home’ on all but two eves where Chef loves to prepare super tasty 3-course suppers including a healthy dessert … after all, you have been working very hard with all this yoga & hiking! There are 2 eves where your taste buds will be free to explore local dining .. its a great way to immerse yourself in a new culture .. and we’ll organise a meal out on one of these free eves too should you like to join us.
