"The walk through the hills around the retreat centre was mind-blowing. I adored all that rustic, unspoilt landscape"

SUNNY SIDE UP
Castillo de Locubín, Andalucía, Spain
7 - 12 September 2017
A five day and five night escape to absorb the last of the summer sunshine with a variety of opportunities for wellness and adventure located in a little piece of paradise surrounded by 30 acres of private oak and olive groves. A tranquil and ecological space with minimal impact on the surrounding natural environment and is bestowed with a natural source of pure spring water and abundant fresh fruit and herbs.
Comfortable camping in shared handcrafted yurts and eco mud huts set in unspoilt countryside, celebrates the best of outdoor living with all the home comforts.
A swimming pool onsite and natural fresh spring water pools a 10 minute walk away, provide ample refreshment opportunities, and extensive tracks though the valleys and up the mountains mean you can explore the olive groves and wild land, straight from the door of your yurt.
The yurts are surrounded by beautiful mountain views and are located close to the toilet and shower area. The sinks and showers have constant hot water and the compost eco toilets are standard sit down toilets just without the flush. They provide manure for the trees and have all the cleanliness and comfort you would expect from usual toilets.

"You guys were perfect. You were so open-minded and open-hearted, and everyone else followed suit as well. You fostered a really communal atmosphere. And the diversity of activities was much appreciated, along with the expectation that we could do or not do any of them as we chose. The freedom to join in or take a time out made the whole weekend feel calm." (May 2017 escapee)
