Almeria Countryside Retreat
24th June -1st July 2023
The venue in the Spanish Countryside
The venue is in 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’. Our retreat 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 pools, one at the house and one in the cortijo area. The house pool water is and eco, fresh water pool, which is continually filtered through reed and water-plant beds, the water is is crystal clear. The pool at the cortijos is a ‘usual swimming pool’ Within 2km 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 range of small food shops selling fresh vegetables and basic groceries, as well as lots of boutique and artisan shops. The retreat is only half an hour from Almeria airport (27km), which is served by Easyjet, Iberia and Ryanair. Join me to relax in this elegant, spacious family home, swim in the plant-filtered pool, and feast on locally-grown Spanish produce.
