“LAST DAYS OF SUMMER RETREAT”

The ocean provides the perfect backdrop for our late summer yoga retreat. A real chance to disconnect from social media and connect back to nature whilst we stretch out those last days of summer and our bodies in an ethically designed private villa on the Costa Brava coastline.

On retreat you will have the time and space to focus fully on your deepening yoga practice, then the rest of the day will then be yours to take a walk to nearby beaches, villages or simply relax by the pool.

THE VENUE:

Our home for the week will be a stunning eco-villa situated above the picturesque bay of Aiguablava on the Costa Brava coastline, the private villa is only a short 10 minute walk to the local beaches and is known for its year round mild and sunny climate. 

In between classes you can enjoy the outdoor living areas, lounging by the saltwater pool, enjoy napping under the shade of the pine tree, lying in a hammock in the mediterranean garden or relaxing on the sofa under the pergola. If you want to explore the local area more there are a number of walking trails with either pine forest walks or coastline walks with amazing views of the surrounding bays.

The villa is 1.5km (15/20mins) away from the iconic town of Begur,  a lively Catalan village with a great selection of restaurants and shops, and  it’s Medieval castle perched above, looking out over the Massif Begur and coastline The Begur coast enjoys a shoreline of unparalleled beauty, whose cliffs, pines, crystal waters and its abrupt coastline, make this area one of the most characteristic of the Costa Brava
We also highly recommend the Salvador Dali route, the best way to discover the great work of this famous 20th century artist. In Figueras, you will find the Dali museum. And in Port lligat, a small town close to Cadaques you can visit his home.
