Easy Travel
Transfers are booked separately from Malaga or Granada airports.  This is booked with Yair and Ziza in advance.  The cost is shared between travelers.
Car parking is plentiful at the venue.  I recommend leaving extra early if driving, taking a picnic to enjoy a steady and comfortable journey to arrive by 4pm.

My wish is that you ensure to enjoy this retreat from the moment you book.  That you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the whole journey.

“There is no lack and there is no rush”

The venue is located on the foot hills of the Sierra Nevada natural park.  With pristine unspoiled beauty of rolling hills, high mountains and ancient olive groves.
You can explore in a car, although I recommend you take the full retreat to be on foot.  To gift yourself time and space to rest in natures abundance.

When you book I will send a short health consultation along with your booking confirmation.  This should be completed and returned by email before the retreat.
