Almeria Countryside Retreat 2022
The venue in the Spanish Countryside
A peaceful, secluded location consisting of the main house, the ‘Finca’, which won awards in the 80s for its striking modernist design, and a group of converted traditional buildings, the ‘Cortijos’. This retreat venue is a stylish, Bohemian family home with a tranquil palm fronted oasis set in 30 acres of citrus and olive groves with sunny lavender and jasmine scented terraces and spectacular views. There are two eco-pools, one at the house which is a fresh water pool and is continually filtered through reed and water-plant beds and is crystal clear. The other in the cortijo area is constructed as a ‘usual swimming pool’.
Within 2 km of the house is the lovely traditional village of Nijar which can be seen across the valley at the foot of the spectacular mountain backdrop.
The village is well known for its selection of local handicrafts. There is a post office, bank and a range of small food shops selling fresh vegetables and basic groceries. Join me to practice yoga and relax in this elegant, spacious family home, swim in the plant-filtered pool, and feast on locally-grown Spanish produce.
