Tara Casa is a country house set in the quiet village of La Magdalena in the Murcian countryside. The weather there is said by the World Health organization to be the healthiest climate in the world. In the winter it is like permanent spring. The country house used to be the village school back in the day and would have been the hub of this tiny village.
It has now been lovingly converted by owners Vivienne and Dan into a retreat for guests. At Tara Casa you can sit among the lemon and orange trees in the Mediterranean garden and listen to the sounds of the wind chimes, the birds and feel the gentle mountain breeze. A place to relax, far away from the daily routine of a busy life, a place to be. The village is quiet and has no immediate local restaurants or amenities, so it is recommended to hire a car, or arrange transport with your hosts for visiting local places of interest, or eating out.
Daily healthy breakfast brunch after morning class, consisting of freshly baked bread each day, cereals, nuts, seeds and fresh seasonal fruit. Dinner is prepared freshly each day using local organic produce and is always a variety of delicious vegetarian dishes with salad and fruit. Alcohol is available at a discounted rate to guests. Teas, coffees, herbal teas and water are available free throughout the day.
Tara Casa can cater for special dietary needs so please let them know of your requirements in advance of the retreat.
Here at Tara Casa you are offered optional treatments at extra cost. These are available on appointment so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
