Come and join Tara Casa for a week of yoga, and mosaic making in the sunshine of Spain. Based near the city of Cartagena in Murcia, Spain, the venue has a mix of single and twin or double rooms available. It also includes breakfast or brunch every day and evening meals. In the morning, there is a long yoga class and in the afternoon the mosaic course. There is also plenty of time to sightsee and laze by the pool.
Tara Casa is a country house set in the quiet village of La Magdalena in the Murcia countryside. The weather here 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. 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 just be.
The village is rural and has no immediate local restaurants or amenities, so you can either hire a car or arrange transport with your hosts for visiting local places of interest, or eating out. Please note the village is in a rural location and sometimes there is the sound of dogs barking around the area and other farm sounds.
At the retreat, there are rescued dogs as your host Viv is involved in animal rescue. Tara Casa has areas for the dogs, they have their own garden and house space away from the guest areas. If guests wish to meet the dogs, they can. Otherwise, Tara Casa does not allow the dogs in guest areas. The dogs are well behaved, gentle, and have a set routine.
Vivienne and Dan offer comfortable accommodation at their retreat house. It is not a hotel, but a homestay with comfortable spaces and bedrooms that have been suitably designed for the comfort and well-being of the retreat participants. It is an intimate space where you can truly relax in peace and tranquility.
You can enjoy secluded Mediterranean gardens with mature plants and trees. Alternatively, the terraced swimming pool garden with sunbeds, umbrellas and seating with a pool bar offering juices, creamy fresh coffees and a glass of wine when the sun sets is the perfect place to sunbathe and chill out.
Tara Casa has a mix of single and twin or double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. There is a dining room and separate sitting room for guest use with TV, music facilities and Wi-Fi, and a good choice of books and games available for guests to read and play during their stay. Snacks beverages, tea making facilities and fridge, are also available 24 hours a day in the dining area for your convenience.
