The retreat will be held in in Moraira, a beautiful port and marina town which is also known as the jewel of Costa Blanca, Spain. The town itself is relatively quiet, with tree-lined streets and unhurried air, perfect for relaxation. Yoga Retreats Spain is located in a quiet side street and just a short stroll away to the town and beach. Located by the sea and close to natural parks and woodland, Yoga Retreats Spain's location is perfect for exploring.
The coastline is stunning with azure blue sea and a back drop of orange groves and grape vines. The town beach has been awarded the prestigious EU Blue Flag classification, denoting its excellent facilities and cleanliness. There is a beautiful coastal path which stretches almost all the way to Calpe, perfect for a beautiful morning walk and a fabulous way to start the day.
During the holiday, a variety of traditional home cooked food will be served daily and freshly prepared by the hosts. The daily meals may consist of salmon, chicken, beef mince, pasta, or rice, along with fresh vegetables and salads or a vegetarian option. There is only one daily meal option but the hosts will always consult with everyone upon arrival about their favorite foods and cook accordingly, to suit everyone in the small group.
Groups may vary and you may be the only guest. The host will keep any single guest company, should they wish, or respect their privacy for those who wish for some time alone. Dinner usually consists of two courses, including a dessert. Yoga Retreat Spain will try to accommodate your dietary needs, likes, and dislikes. Vegan options, however, are regrettably cannot be accommodated.
Breakfast is a "help yourself" at a time to suit each guest. This may consist of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, toast, and a choice of herbal teas and coffee. Drinking water is provided. Yoga Retreats Spain only asks for you to wash your own dishes after breakfast as it can be taken at any time to suit each guest.
Yoga Retreats Spain respectfully asks you to wash up and tidy after eating or preparing any snacks, drinks, or any items of food you may have purchased during your stay, everyday. This is to help keep the guest kitchen tidy at all times, out of respect for others.
After all other meals, the crockery will be taken away by the villa hosts for cleaning. This enables the hosts and you to coordinate as a team, in order to move quickly together to the next activity, either by walking or by car. The hosts are very much about family, teamwork, and sharing. Please note that you cannot expect for a hotel experience during your stay in the villa.
Optional activities in the summer months from June to September are kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding for hire from one of the local beaches, which is proving to be very popular. You may also try beach walking or a walk to the Cap D'Or, an eight-kilometer walk to and from the villa with spectacular views.
You will need a reasonable level of fitness to climb the last one kilometer up the mountain path to the top. A drink at the beach café after the descent is the most popular activity to do after and before returning back into town.
Mini treatments are available locally in Moraira by appointment. For those who wish to have a treatment, to avoid disappointment, it is strongly suggested for you to book at the beginning of your holiday as the studio gets very busy. There are too many treatments to list here with special offers and some prices change weekly. Yoga Retreats Spain will direct you to the studio which is just a short walk from the villa.
