SUMMER IN PARADISE
Sunday 5th - Saturday 11th July 2020
Welcome home x x x x
I am so UNBELIEVABLY excited about bringing this retreat to you!! Hurrahh! Kiki and I have toiled over every detail, to make sure that this retreat is perfect.
And here we are!
I cannot tell you how MAGICAL this place is!! I just wish I could take everybody to EXPERIENCE the enchantment and deep connection that this retreat offers.
Every morning in paradise you will awaken to move your body with yoga and settle your mind with meditation, whilst behind the scenes, your beautiful chef 'Katie', prepares a sumptuous breakfast for the whole yogi crew. Or perhaps one particular morning you've decided to join the sunrise hike! And bite into a fresh baguette and home-grown figs, as you watch the sun shine its magnificence over the Andalusian mountains!
Reconnect with just how BEAUTIFUL life is. Everything it offers...the wonder we can elicit within our soul on this trip is boundless.
We have planned workshops, classes, a surprise (!!!!), excursions, and time to simply sit and read by the salt pools, or wander around the olive groves...bliss.
Lots of info on this retreat to devour, below.

La Finca was inspired by a wish to re-create a feeling of Heaven on Earth.
Nestled in the heart of Andalucia, amidst thirty-three acres of fruitful Spanish gardens, La Finca enjoys 360-degree views of the Sierra Cabrera Mountains, Mojacar Pueblo and the Mediterranean Sea. This ingenious, carbon-neutral retreat, harnesses natural resources to provide power from the sun and the wind.
La Finca is an eco-retreat and sanctuary for healing, where you will enjoy the luxury of being off-grid in a fabulous and inspiring setting.
The pools are heated with solar energy and treated with salt (no chlorine or chemicals here!) we're all-natural baby!
The Garden Kitchen is run by the amazing Head Chef, Katie.
Katie is the most sought after chef in the area and is a culinary genius! (Which I can attest to 1million%).
Katie majestically transforms all of the delicious fruit and vegetables from La Finca's Market Garden into sensational masterpieces which are a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. Katie is not only passionate about creating an exceptional menu, but she does so with acute attention to detail. All of the food is organic or sustainably sourced and much of it grown in La Finca's market gardens. The retreat is mainly plant-based, however we will serve local cheeses and organic eggs...there is the option to serve meat upon request...Kiki and I are DEEPLY into intuitive eating; we want ALL bodies to feel welcomed and nourished. With that said, strictly vegan and gluten-free options are also available upon request.
La Finca also make their very own (homegrown!) chutneys, jams and olive oil.
Fresh fruit and vegetables, and teas and coffee are also always readily available for you, as are any leftovers for you to snack on if you're a hungry monkey (like me!).

Located on a hilltop, La Finca overlooks the countryside, the distant Sierra Cabrera mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. It is approximately 7 miles from the stunning hilltop town of Mojacar, which sits above the golden beaches of its coastal resort (approx. 20-minutes drive). The region of Andalucia is known for its whitewash villages, Moorish architecture and is the home of flamenco
The average temperature in Almería in July is: 28° high / 21° low. And a beautiful 14 hours of sunlight! The sunsets and rises are just breathtaking! Time seems to become so vast as we adopt traditional Meditteranean living, enjoying a slower afternoon, perhaps even a siesta!
