"Wonderful weekend away"
I'd highly recommend a weekend retreat at Casa Turnilla, Adam, Sonia and their gorgeous baby daughter we're very relaxed and made my friend and I feel very welcome. The weekend is a great mix of lots of yoga, hiking and eating with free time to relax and chill out. We had a lovely group of six people of differing abilities and all very easy going. The retreat was fantastic value for money with a lovely room and incredible food all homemade with fresh ingredients.

"Excellent Retreat in Estepona"
This was my second visit this year to Casa Turnilla and it was equally as enjoyable as the first. From the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, the schedule and extra activities, the beautiful food, so I would say, that all in all, the whole weekend was an absolute joy. (Not forgetting the other lovely guests who made it extra special!)
from United States, June 2018
I booked my stay at Casa Turnilla as my first ever yoga retreat on the recommendation of a friend. This in itself attested to the quality of what was on offer but my expectations were immesurably surpassed! From Adam's prompt replies to every query prior to arrival, to the warm greeting upon arrival, from the excuisitly delicious vegan / vegetarian breakfasts and lunches prepared by Sonia to the personally tailored yoga sessions conducted by Adam - the whole experience was faultless and much more than I'd expected from a yoga retreat!
Both Sonia and Adam did all they could not only to make me feel at home and part of their family but also cared to provide me with as individual an experience, geared towards my personal needs and goals. I cannot recommend Casa Turnilla enough and count the days until I return!

"Top class yoga and delicious food"
I had a fantastic weekend at Casa Turnilla. Adam and Sonia (and little Jody) were warm and welcoming hosts. The yoga sessions with Adam were great - he is an excellent teacher and adapted the sessions to everyone's needs and interests, taking us through a real variety of yoga. Sonia made us really delicious vegan food and gave us so many interesting tips and information about nutrition during meal times as well.
I also had an amazing massage which turned into an osteopathy session from Miguel Angel.
Since my return I no longer have an achy back/hips thanks to him sorting me out, plus the 7 yoga sessions!
All in all a fabulous weekend and I will definitely be returning!
from Great Britain, April 2018
The weekend was great, from start to finish. Adam and Sonia were so hospitable and made me feel very welcome. The yoga was perfectly balanced, focussing on us each individually, what we could already do, and pushing us to challenge ourselves. It has definitely inspired me to regularly practise yoga. The food was a riot of tastes, colours and textures - absolutely delicious! Definitely hope to return, with friends in tow.

"The perfect escape"
The format was perfect and I really liked the fact that it was 3 days instead of 4. Adam and his family were so welcoming and you really felt a part of Casa Turnilla, as if you are living something special at that very moment. Also, I had a great group of people and we had some lovely downtime together in the evening. The food cooked by Sonia was delicious and a new world of discovery for my taste buds. Finally, the yoga on the rooftop or on the beach were pure pleasures and a lovely bonus to this weekend. I will definitely go back and this has become my favorite place for a weekend away.

"Perfect yoga weekend"
The Casa Turnilla yoga retreat exceeded expectations. Adam and Sonia were so lovely and welcoming and made me and my mum feel perfectly at home. The yoga was fantastic and Adam catered for different levels of experience and also offered the opportunity to try different yoga that we had not experienced before which was lovely. We had plenty of time to ourselves to enjoy our weekend together. The location was amazing being only a couple of minutes from the beach and the nice restaurants. We also really enjoyed the fact that we went on a lovely hike and had the yoga workshop on the beach. A wonderful weekend of activity, incredible food and lovely people. I couldn’t recommend it enough.
from Great Britain, January 2018
I really loved my time in the Casa Turnilla Yoga. Everything was more than I expected. I enjoyed all the yoga lessons, the best vegan food I have ever had and great location in beautiful Estepona. I recommend this retreat to everyone. Thank you awesome Kate, Adam and Sonja!

"Fantastic first time Yoga experience all round"
From the moment we arrived we were treated with such welcoming warmth and a nothing too much trouble attitude. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and so close to the town. All of our hosts Adam, Kate, Sonya and little Jodi were fab and the food was such an experience as we had never really tried vegan food before and I am looking forward to trying out some of the recipes. Classes were great and diverse giving us a taster of different types of yoga and loved the different environments we experienced. Kate was a delight she is a lovely positive spirit and listening to all their experiences was inspiring. Adams guitar playing was not bad either. All in all a fab first time experience for us ...thank you so much one and all

Este alojamiento y stage de yoga es la opción perfecta para una escapada relajante y la oportunidad de conocer un sitio genial , Estepona.
Sonia y Adam son unos excelentes anfitriones, la pequeña de la casa nos ha alegrado todos los días también.
Fue muy interesante conocer distintos tipos de yoga y , al ser un grupo reducido disfrutamos de atención personalizada.
La comida , llena de opciones veganas y saludables estuvieron magníficas.
Todo excelente, gracias chicos.

"Amazing yoga weekend "
The food was deliciously vegan, the yoga teachers are really good, and the house is located in the lovely city of Estepona (5 mins walk from the beach).
The lessons are diverse by offering, vinyasa, yin and nidra. We also did a really nice yoga workshop practising headstands, which I eventually start to learn :)
The house is nice and clean, and has many spots where you can relax (balcony, roof terrace). We had a big room with balcony.
Thank you for the amazing weekend Adam, Sonia, Kate & little Jodie!

"A fantastic yoga retreat from start to finish "
You are instantly welcomed into their home. The location in Estepona is great, just a few minutes to the beach and all the restaurants. They roof terrace allows you to see the sea and even as far as Africa. The rooms are pretty, the food is fab, the activities are varied. Every yoga was a different style so I felt I got to be strong, powerful but also relaxed. Everything about the itinerary worked... There was personal 1-1 time with Adam to practise any yoga stuff, slack lining ( which I am new too and loved), a trek up in the mountains! Yoga on the rooftop, yoga on the beach as the sun rises....There was nothing missing!

"Great food, yoga and hospitality"
* mix of yoga styles made for interesting, informative, active yet relaxing weekend and variations provided encouraged working with own body and level
* yoga on the beach in October - great location, as beach was 5 min walk from house
* great hospitality and delicious vegan food
* loved the excursion to the Roman sulphur baths
* gently encouraged to try some things I didn’t initially think I would be able to do!
* relaxed, welcoming hosting
from Great Britain, October 2017
Everything was positive from the moment of arrival. A warm welcome in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Great attention from the two tutors, Adam and Kate, a best-ever massage from Miguel, and wonderful vegan food home-made by Sonia. Accommodation was spotlessy clean and comfortable. The trip to the canyon and Roman sulphur bath was a great diversion, and as each yoga session covered a different style there was plenty of variety over the weekend. An oasis of relaxation combined with energising yoga sessions. Highly recommended.

"Casa Turnilla yoga retreat (Spain)"
This was a fun and interesting weekend, hosted by the welcoming and lovely couple Adam and Sonia. The house is delightful, brilliantly positioned in a very pleasant town, and really is only 5 minutes from the beach!
The room was big and roomy, with it's own balcony, and the place was pleasantly and simply decorated. Bed was super-comfy!
Loved the carefully-prepared breakfasts on the roof terrace, shared with the family and the other 2 yoginins, the fab walk we were taken on, and the final evening spent playing on the slackfline on the beach, and practicing wild yoga moves for fun!
from Great Britain, June 2017
Where do I begin?
I booked this short break for my son (21) and I - both looking for an introduction into yoga, along with a relaxing break by the sea and in the mountains, for a reasonable price. This break ticked all the boxes and we weren't disappointed in what Adam, Sonia and Kate had to offer.
Email communication before our arrival was very helpful and responses were prompt.
Being picked up and dropped off at the bus station by Adam was a bonus, saving us from having to find the b&b ourselves!
From the minute we walked into Adam and Sonia's house we were made to feel very welcome and they made our stay in Estepona so relaxed and enjoyable. The yoga sessions were just right - both Adam and Kate are excellent teachers and were able to adapt the sessions to meet the needs and abilities of everyone. The excursions were great and, again, very relaxed and tailored to the needs of everyone - we would never have found the brilliant walk and Roman baths ourselves.
Sonia's hospitality and cooking were amazing - a real treat. Any reservations about vegan food have been totally dispelled.
The little extra's such as the slack lining on the beach just added to the fun and enjoyment of the weekend. We have returned home feeling refreshed, relaxed, and looking forward to continuing our yoga journeys.
Can't recommend this retreat highly enough

"fabulous yoga retreat!!"
The yoga retreat at BnB Turnilla is quite simply an escape to paradise!! The minute you arrive you are made to feel one of the family and treated with such kindness, generosity and authentic warmth that you can't help but call the place home! The yoga sessions offer a fantastic mix of Ying and Yang practices that are tailored to you and you even have the chance to practice on the beach!! The food is mind blowingly good and the hike and natural spa trips offer a fantastic opportunity to explore Espotona's natural beauty. Adam, Sonia and Kate, I cannot thank you enough for making me feel so welcome and giving me such a lush time in Estopona. I can't wait to come back again next year!!

"Amazing yoga, amazing food"
We loved the range and variety of classes and workshops. Adam and Kate complement each other so well in their teaching styles. They really worked with us to tailor every class to meet our needs, and gave a great balance of support and challenge. The morning beach session was wonderful. We never imaged we would manage a headstand and walk a slack line within such a short course.
Everyone else says it too, but the food was truly outstanding, and we loved feeling part of this wonderful family at mealtimes. Getting a copy of all the recipes was also a great bonus.
Highly recommend a treatment and massage from Miguel - best we've ever had and complements the yoga well.
We stayed for a week, and took additional yoga classes on most days before and after the retreat - also recommended for anyone with the time. Estepona is wonderful and there is so much to do. Casa Turnilla is gorgeous. So chilled and happy.
Thank you Sonia, Adam, Kate and baby Jody. You were all truly inspiring. See you again soon.

"Rewarding and relaxing yoga weekend"
Warm welcome and friendliness of the hosts... Good yoga instruction... Very flexible timetable with lots of room for suggestions, changes or other options.
from France, October 2018
Our hosts were very welcoming. The place was nice and the bedroom was wide. Meals were delicious and healthy. We have yoga lessons in unusual places: on the beach or rooftop while the sun was rising. Different types of yoga were proposed. We went hiking all together. It was an enjoyable stay!

Adam is an expert teacher, both for beginners and advanced practitioners. He and his wife Sonia are very sympathetic and dedicated hosts. Delicious food, nice appartment near the seashore. I felt really at home and I will definitely come back.
from Great Britain, September 2018
I had a great time! It felt like being a part of their small familiy. The house with the roof terrace was great and had a great location to walk almost everywhere. As a meat lover I honestly was a doubting about the vegan food. But it was all delicious, freshly prepared by Sonia with love- nothing artificial (as far as I know). Sonia also shared lots of ideas about different spices, cooking and recipes.
I liked the Ýoga classes as well as it had the right level to challenge and to relax. The whole agenda was a good fit. I had spare time to explore Estepona (really nice town) and to think about. Paul who did the live coaching did a great job- although it was a prepared program for a group- not an individual one-to- one session. Since we were a small group it all worked out I got several ideas to follow up on within the next weeks/months. So I had a really good time off and I definitely recommend this retreat- not only to relax but to work with myself, my thoughts and feelings.
Really fantastic weekend retreat. Perfect balance of wonderfully instructed yoga, with outdoor activities, meditation and an incredible selection of delicious, healthy food. Adam & Sonia welcomed me into their home and went above and beyond to ensure I had everything I needed for a really great break. The accommodation is central, spacious, spotless and very, very friendly. The canyon hike and swim in the roman baths were a real highlight for me. I really couldn't have made a better choice and am looking forward to taking some of Adam's gentle teaching methods into my own classes. Great alignment work and massage too from Miguel and his magic hands! Very much looking forward to trying to recreate some of Sonia's amazing recipes. Highly recommend a visit. I'm still floating.
I highly recommend the yoga retreat. Everything about the trip was perfect! We loved staying in a more traditional style Spanish home and really enjoyed eating on the balcony with the amazing views. The location is peaceful and quiet yet just minutes from the town and seafront with lots of restaurants to choose. Adam and Sonia were wonderful and made sure we felt at home and took care of everything for us. We loved the delicious home cooked meals and day trips and enjoyed seeing things off the tourist path. Adam and Sonia recommended a local seafood place which if you like seafood we highly recommend - it's about 30 mins walk but a pretty walk by the seafront and then you also get to see the lighthouse which is a bonus. The highlight of our trip was seeing Miguel for a treatment - he was so kind, caring and giving and definitely knew what he was doing and had lots of experience. Most of all we loved fitting in so much - we all had different needs on the trip that was catered for - and yet the whole experience was still relaxing and stress free thanks to Adam and Sonia. The yoga was great too and really catered for our individual needs. And don't worry there are snacks before morning yoga in case you need the fuel to get going!

A lovely weekend yoga retreat with Sonia and Adam. The retreat far surpassed my expectations. Sonia and Adam kindly picked me up and dropped me back off at Marbella bus station. The food was homemade, nutritious and tasy. Sonia loves to cook and has a lot of knowledge to share on nutrition. The yoga classes with Adam were excellent and suitable for all levels. Adam also kindly took myself and the rest of the group on a detailed tour of Estepona and up the mountains to Casares. The hosts paid a lot of attention to the finer detail of making this a very enjoyable, relaxing stay. I would highly recommend.
