Tarifa is a small town in the province of Cadiz, Andalusia, on the southern coast of Spain located on the Costa de la Luz, (coast of light). Tarifa was once a small, traditional fishing village, world renowned for the quality of its tuna and offers an abundance of high quality local fresh fish, vegetables, and fruits.

The old town quarter of this little seaside town is delightful, full of narrow cobbled lanes, small cafés, and fabulous seafood restaurants. There are superb views across the water to Africa, and the Moroccan port of Tangier is beautifully lit up at night. It is also the premier worldwide wind resort for kite surfing and windsurfing, and the original home of the African Film Festival.

You will enjoy two freshly prepared; nutritious, vegetarian home cooked meals daily. Local fish will also be available. Meals are prepared using locally sourced ingredients, some grown in the Villa vegetable garden.

Snack packs of fruit and nuts are available each morning before yoga practice, followed by a generous brunch after practice, and dinner in the evening. Tea, coffee, and water are available free of charge. Please let them know if you have any specific dietary requirements when you're booking.

There is also plenty of free time to explore the local area and take in some sights if you wish to. Alternatively, you may want to simply relax, read, swim, or walk in the surrounding area.

Testimonials

  • Review by Jill

    "I really enjoyed your yoga retreat as it ticked all of the boxes. I loved the yoga twice a day and your teaching was informative, knowledgeable and I managed a flexibility and calm that I have not experienced before! Not once was I reluctant to attend a class, in fact I was sorry when it ended. I needed to bring myself back to myself again as I have gone through lots of changes in my busy life. As I said I have unfolded in a beautiful way. The setting was beautiful, rustic and comfortable with beautiful views and the pool was welcome. In fact, we had the right amount of activity and me time. The chanting mantras were lovely and thank you for sharing them with me. The group was amazing and every single person was a beautiful spirit. We had fun and laughter and it was lovely to eat together, such healthy vegetarian food. The guided walks were enjoyable and the Turkish family really went out of their way to make sure that we were happy. I loved my rose facial! I honestly felt that I had been away for much longer. I am now a fan of your retreats and will certainly aim to repeat the experience! Hasina was a wonderful presence with her organising skills, love and photography. I came home feeling strong, relaxed and calm and will keep this energy with me for a long time. Thank you for a wonderful experience and one which I will cherish for a long time. I know that I have made some wonderful lifelong friends."

  • Review by Bruce

    "Raziya's yoga holiday delivered a perfect blend of sensitive, professional and accessible yoga instruction for all levels and abilities, and the coastal mountain setting and friendly family run hotel staff all conspired to make our seven days a memorable and profound experience. Someone said "the week's yoga was a continuous melody not a rock concert"

    "Choosing and booking a yoga retreat from the internet can be quite a daunting task but the moment I received the email responding to my initial enquiry about Raziya's week I knew I had made the right choice. From that moment onwards our correspondence and subsequent telephone calls reassured me I would have a lovely week. I have not done a lot of yoga before and her method of teaching is thorough with great attention to detail in getting each position correct before moving on to the next one. Stretching and meditation also play a large part in the twice daily classes. Faralya is the perfect venue too, although I have visited before. The family looked after us all so well, with fabulous home cooked vegetarian meals. I am actually more of a foodie than a yogi so each meal was heaven as far as I was concerned. I don't think I have ever eaten so much feta cheese drizzled in local honey or home made tahini in my life - and no one even had to twist my arm!"
