Welcome to the Finca in the mountains near Alicante. I have just finished the renovation of an old Spanish Finca and have now begun the retreats. Just imagine staying in the house with its typical Andalusian style that vibrates of energy. It uses to be the house of a Midwife in the area, so many children have been born here. The midwife was also a painter. Her husband was using the land, having olive trees and fruit trees around the house.
When you arrive here, we will focus on the wellbeing of you. We might use the beautiful outdoor kitchen with a pizza / baking oven and also the barbeque for nice dinners. The surrounding will give you a wonderful view of mountains, orange trees, olive trees, the sea on the horizon and much more. The food will be of high quality, with organic vegetables bought on the market nearby. The meat and the fish we will have is bought from nearby producers. We love soups and will focus on hot soups for the winter season a lot. The indoor grill we have will also be smoking hot as we enjoy the taste of barbeque. There will be free drinks of fresh water and teas. for dinner and lunch. For those who want we also serve wine and beer.
The yoga practice will be held as much outdoors as possible, and if hot and sunny, we will go down to the beach for yoga and have lunch at a lovely beach restaurant. We will adapt the time of our sessions to suit the weather. We will be on top of a roof, overlooking the Finca, the mountains, the sea, and the infinite sky. when doing yoga here. Should the weather require it, we are indoors for the yoga sessions in the beautiful yoga shala.
We will go down to the stables at El Rancho for our riding sessions. It is situated close to Torrevieja and on the brim of Laguna Rosa, a pink salt lake. It is pink because of a microorganism, the one Flamingos get their pink feathers from, and should we swim there, you will experience real floating as it is nearly 22% salt in the lake.
At El Rancho, we have very nice and calm horses for a lovely ride in the Natural Parks of the salty lakes. The paths are sandy and soft and will make the trotting and cantering to a lovely experience. Also, the beaches are white of salt, it looks like ice or snow and is also giving the little extra to ride on. After riding, we can take some tapas and drinks at El Ranchos lovely restaurant. This is not included but very good prices.
We will also visit the Arabian Tea house so near to us you can walk there. It is a bit like Alhambra, with flowers, birds, houses in a true Arabian style and lovely tea to drink in a typical Arabian atmosphere. Entrance is 9 € and then tea and cakes are included.
This retreat will offer you a memorable stay, where you have had time to find your peace, eating healthy, doing yoga for body, soul, and mind, and you return to your life with a new grace in your movements. Welcome!
You will be accommodated at a finca house in shared or private occupancy basis with kitchen and living room to spend time with the rest of the group. There are double rooms or rooms with single beds (with curtains to separate them). They have shared bathrooms and toilets.
This retreat includes rides in the nature of Torrevieja Natural park on lovely Spanish horses!
