The most economical way to get here is via local bus from Almeria or Murcia to the local town of Vera and we can arrange a pick-up for €20 each way. (I hop on the bus from Almeria airport to the central bus station and then get on the bus to Vera, which is about €12 in total. It's super easy - I can send you detailed instructions on this if you chose to meet us this way.)
The local bus network is ALSA – www.alsa.com
La Finca use a trusted transfer company to bring guests to the finca – so please do get in touch for prices if this is what you'd like to do.
CHECK IN AND OUT
Check-in opens at 2pm however you are welcome to arrive earlier and have lunch (€12).
Check-out is at 11am however you are welcome to check-out of the room and put your luggage in the office if you would like stay for lunch (€12)
Unfortunately at the moment, La Finca doesn’t accept cards at the retreat so please bring cash (EUROS) for anything you buy here such as massages, alcohol and shop purchases. I usually take cash for 1 treatment, money for a couple of drinks at the beach and misc money, if I want to escape by myself somewhere in a taxi - so think about what you'll likely want to do and spend and go from there.
Everything that is purchased at the retreat is to be paid for at the end of your stay. We will keep account of expenses and you will settle your bill in the office on the last full day of your stay
There are ATM machines in the towns of Mojacar Playa and Mojacar Pueblo, which we will visit at some point if you don't get a chance to pick up Euros before the trip (but do get euros for your taxi bus ride to the retreat - we will text you to remind you.)
La Finca has a charming boutique that sells eco-products (toiletries, suncream, sanitary products), clothing, gifts, jewellery, products from our garden and local artisans.
If you have any dietary requirements, please tell myself or Kiki so that we can inform Katie, our chef.
La Finca's electricity sockets are two-pin 230V.
They operate on a solar and wind electricity system that powers the retreat centre. Please charge your devices during the day whilst the sun is shining, rather than in the evening when the power is low.
In the event of a power cut, La Finca haa a generator we can use, but they would prefer to keep this to a very minimum.
You can email me or Kiki at any time of the day or night to discuss the retreat and we will get back to you asap.
If you need us urgently or need to speak over the phone for further clarification/ assurance, you can call us. However please note that the nature of being a yoga teacher means that we usually teach in the mornings and evenings, so the best time to call is in the afternoon. With that being said, we can take the odd early morning or evening call :-)
WHAT TO BRING
– Insect repellant (we supply mosquito nets)
– Organic suncream (this is a lot to do with the water and the swimming pool and protecting the environment)
– Organic toiletries
– Swimming costume
– Notebook, journal and pen
– Loose yoga clothes, or tight for power...whatever you're most comfortable in
– Long sleeves/ shawl for the evenings (it can get a little chilly in the evenings and annoyingly mosquitos are a thing)
La Finca is a sanctuary for animals as well as humans!
We have two young friendly dogs called Babu (Mastiff and Spanish Sheepdog cross breed) and Frankie (Podenko). They are walked twice a day by our team so if you would like to join us, please let us know and we’d be delighted for you to do so! Please kindly note that they are being trained at the moment so please refrain from feeding them, especially at the table!
You will see our African Sulcata tortoises Sofia (larger) and Kristo (smaller) roaming freely around the finca. During the summer months they have a peculiar mating behaviour which involves Sofia tipping Kristo onto his back. This can look rather aggressive however please be assured it is perfectly normal. If you see Kristo on his back, you are welcome to correct him!
We also have two cats, Galaxy (tabby and white) and Moonie (tabby) who generally keep themselves to themselves!
Please ensure that your washing toiletries are eco-friendly. All of the grey water that runs from the drains is cleaned through a bacterial system and recycled to irrigate the land so the cleaner the water, the better. La Finca sell a selection of toiletries in the Utopian Boutique.
La Finca offer a laundry service for €20 per load.
We have wifi available in the main living area of the house, however we invite you to disconnect whilst you are here and take the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in your experience here.
Whilst we want to be as inclusive as ever, sadly La Finca does not have wheelchair access.
