The retreat will be held in a 400-year-old farmhouse built of the local Maltese limestone, which has been renovated and kept in old-modern style, offering comfort, charm, and relaxation. The house is set on three floors with two en-suite queen bedrooms, a healing therapy cave, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room, fireplace, and a private pool overlooking Comino and Malta.

Enjoy the most sought after views in the Maltese Islands with beaches, valleys, and lovely coastal walks all around. The farmhouse offers a warm, sensual, and idyllic sanctuary to re-generate and re-invent yourself.

The Healing Tree has a community garden behind the house and uses in season vegetables and herbs when in available. We also buy fresh goat cheese, goat milk, and free range eggs from our neighbor, who is a shepherd and can be seen walking her sheep and goats daily by the house. The Healing Tree accommodation is simple, modest, and nurturing. You will be well looked after and nurtured as all your basic needs are provided for.

The Healing Tree space does not have a television but it does have a large table for you to share and support one another. The triangular common area kitchen, dining room, and living room are the heart of the home. Located just below your room is the healing cave where healing therapies and session take place.

You will stay in a private bedroom of either the Pool or Earth Rooms. The Pool Room, which has an en-suite bathroom. It is the middle room, which connects to the common areas, has one queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. It has a door that connects directly to the pool. The bathroom also has a bathtub. It is the oldest room in the house and displays traditional Maltese tiles as well as high ceilings. The room is ideal for dream, relaxation, connecting within, and connection to water.

The lower room, which is partially underground, has one queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. It connects to the healing cave. It is the quietest room in the home. The room is ideal as for deep introspection and meditation. The energy of the room and its cave have been known as an initiation room, where you are able to meet, embrace, and unlock awareness and power that has previously held you back. Massages, sessions with Andrea, and yoga - weather not permitting in winter - will be held in the cave (only for those on retreat). We kindly ask you to allow us to pass through the room to the cave. All other uses of the cave are by discretion of the guest in this room.

Fresh towels and linens, a pool towel, and a hairdryer are provided. There is Wi-Fi and each room is equipped with a gas heater for winter and a fan for summer. A bathrobe and indoor slippers are also given in winter.

Andrea Ridgway

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in the middle of the Mediterranean sea on the island of Gozo in the village of Qala. Gozo, which means 'joy', is a little spit of land sitting in the Mediterranean Sea with the unique rocky coastal landscape, waters so crystal-clear and the sky so bright blue that you’ll have to rub your eyes to believe what you are seeing.

Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago and is an ideal destination for those who treasure a slow, relaxed rhythm of life and cherish the unspoiled countryside and being close to the sea. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside. The beauty of surrounding nature all around create an ambiance of complete peace.
