Yoga and Meditation Retreat Spain

Enjoy the summer, sun, beach and the sea and start every day with a yoga-session that nourishes body and mind. The yoga sessions take place either in the beautiful seminar room of Villa Isabel or directly on the beach. After a delicious brunch you can relax on the fine, sandy beach, do active water-sports, explore roman ruins, stroll through the boutiques of the villages or towns nearby, hike through protected pine forests or make yourself comfortable in our garden. The motto is: do what you like and enjoy it! Once a week we offer to walk leisurly to the natural beach Waikiki, which is framed by stunning rocks made of sandstone. This beach can only be reached by walking! The experienced Yoga teacher and yoga book author Isabella Welsch guides the group through the week with sensibly designed yoga-classes for all levels.

Retreat location

Altafulla is a medieval Catalan village on the mediterranean sea. It has a beautiful intact historical center crowned by the medieval castle of Altafulla. Along the clean, sandy beach you will find an old fishing quarter dating back to the 18th century with charming small houses. Walking a few minutes along the bay of Altafulla-Tamarit, you reach the place where the river Gaià empties into the sea, its last stretch being a small nature preserve and heaven for songbirds – the Protected Nature Reserve at the mouth of the River Gaià. Due to damming upriver, it carries very little water at its last section, forming a tiny salt marsh separated from the sea by a bar of sand. This wildlife preserve is run by L’Hort de la Sínia, an ecological agriculture, learning, and activities center that can be visited.

If you continue walking a few minutes further along the seashore, you reach another medieval castle – called Castle of Tamarit – that sits on a small promontory overlooking the sea. Beyond the Castle of Tamarit is one of the last remaining pine forests stretching along the sea in Catalonia, part of which is a small nature preserve.

Altafulla is also home to the remains of the Roman Villa of Els Munts, which is part of a larger UNESCO World Heritage Site and where interesting guided tours through the ruins are offered.

Altafulla has a mild, Mediterranean climate all year round with a lot of sunshine. The summer heat rarely reaches above 30 °C and there is always a pleasant sea breeze blowing. Apart from swimming in the sea, the area is especially inviting for cycling and hiking along the coastal pine forests. Tarragona, a former Roman provincial capital with numerous, remarkable Roman monuments, is 8 minutes away by train. Day trips to Barcelona (about 1 h by train) or to other resorts (Sitges, Cambrils) are also easily accessible by the good train connection.
