Accommodation

Facilities

  • Sauna
  • Garden
  • Yoga deck

The 3 guest rooms have separate entrances and are offered only as a service for people who do yoga and therapeutic sessions, a maximum of 5 guests. There is one large double room (2 single beds), one normal double room (queen size bed), and one single room (1 single bed), all with their own bathroom (2 attached, 1 in the hall). There is no TV and no air-con, but all rooms have ventilators and central heating. Our guests do NOT get to choose the room online. Guests are never placed in a shared room unless they travel together.

This retreat will be held in a home, not in a hotel. Please take a look at the images provided to have the right expectations. Your main desire should be the program, not a luxury resort (although the house is comfortable and your hosts will do all in their power to support your needs).

The retreat center is in Aleid and Doby’s home, they run the retreats as a couple and live on a separate floor. In the exotic garden and under the roof of the veranda, you can relax on sunbeds or puffs or take a hammock to where you want.

Extra information

For the yoga classes, mats, and meditation pillows are provided. The yoga has a maximum of five participants and they are given outdoors when possible. From April to October, you can be sure to enjoy outdoor yoga. In January, March, November, and December, yoga classes mix outdoor and indoor instruction. As soon as the sun is out, Aleid uses an outdoor coaching "office," which is available most of the year.

For a donation fee, you can also use the three bicycles and the infrared sauna. Your hosts will try to find a balance between connecting and private space for them and for you. You will have quite some time for yourself to rest. You are welcome to bring your own books, movies, or music. You can also use the house's collection. Your hosts like to share what they have, so if you need a specific thing, tool, fire pot, paint, or clay, do ask.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Cala Figuera, Spain. There are walking and cycling paths from the house along the coast and into the typical Mediterranean backlands with forests, flowers, olive, and fruit trees. The house is on the outer ring of the beautiful, natural, small fishing harbor.

Just one street down, you will see the ever changing light on the water and the typical Mallorquin white fishing boats, the llauts. You will also see the fishermen work on their nets and sell their catch every afternoon. There is a small boulevard with a cliff and sea view restaurants nearby.

Further down, you will find a few shops, a mini market, a cash machine, diving, kayak, and SUP and boat tours. Just beyond the harbor is Parque Natural Mondrago, a large area with protected forest landscape, cliffs, and two stunning white beaches. You will see they resemble the Caribbean, with turquoise waters.

In warm months, you may head out early to do yoga on the beach. Nearby, you will also find Santanyi, one of the bigger villages with more services, including a small hospital, post office, galleries, nice shops, two big supermarkets, cafés, and restaurants, some of them with weekly live music.

From Cala Figuera you can also visit wonderful places, including Coves de Drac, Cabrera Island, Randa Monastery, and Monasterio de San Salvador. There are also famous beaches where you can relax and take in the sun, including the famous Es Trench Beach.
