About The Retreat
We would love to whisk you away to an island far off the coast of North Africa. An island filled with raw and untouched nature, beautiful mountains, stunning views and an array of wildlife and fauna. The island itself is fairly small in size but everything which it contains is on a vast scale. Steep cliff edges lead to dramatic landscapes and the island boasts that it has the largest sea cliffs in all of the land (well Europe anyway). There are over 1300 hiking trails to get lost in and with our experienced hike guides you will wander through the best parts of this beautiful island. The volcanic history adds a certain charm to the enchanting views and coastline of the island. Everywhere you look your eyes will be feasting. With yoga twice a day and adventures packed in back to back this is a holiday where you try to do as much as you can in one week! Or you can choose to lay by the pool and just relax!

This has gone to number one in my retreat experiences - best yoga teaching I’ve ever experienced (as a relative beginner I never thought I’d ever be able to do a 2 hour class). The group bonded well and it was lovely to make new friends. The venue was in a stunning location, with pretty gardens.
