The ideal location for your Spain yoga retreat! The venue is an ideal choice for a company holiday, team building or any large group holiday.

Costa Brava Beaches
We’ll begin our visit with a morning walk on the Cami de Ronda, an extensive network of footpaths along the beautiful Costa Brava coastline. Expect super views as we walk through secluded coves and pass stylish homes. We will visit Calella, Llafranc, and Tamariu. We recommend having lunch in Tamariu beach, right by the sea.
We’ll visit two fascinating medieval villages: Pals and Peratallada. You’ll enjoy the old but well-preserved buildings, the narrow lanes and cozy squares. You’ll also find wonderful boutiques hidden away in these delightful villages.
Girona and Jewish Quarter
We visit Girona, the region’s principal city. Founded by the Romans in the First Century, we’ll visit the old quarter with its displays of Arab and Jewish art, the result of these cultures living together for centuries side-by-side with Christianity. Also, have some time for shopping.
Time to visit the famed Dali Museum in Figueras. While not everyone is a fan of this surrealist artist, his museum is a ‘must see’ in Spain. “There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.” – Salvador Dalí
An overview of Barcelona provides first-time visitors with a glimpse of the city’s many treasures. We’ll focus on the architectural masterpieces of Antonio Gaudi including his unfinished Sagrada Familia . We’ll walk through the old quarters of the city with a guide that knows the city like the back of his hand. Finally, if you wish, you can have some free time for your own explorations
