Villa La Pena, Tarifa Spain


7 Day Yoga Retreat From Saturday 17th - 24th June 2017 with Naomi Hayama

Now only one space left!

Venue

Relax and rejuvenate in a secluded and beautiful villa with gorgeous grounds and indoor and outdoor pools. There’s a specially built yoga studio and a beautiful outdoor practice area.  

This is an exclusive stand-alone villa and the entire complex will be ours for the whole duration. Unlike many other retreats, the group will be kept to a small size (maximum of 12 people) so that you can receive more personal attention and learn yoga in an intimate setting.

Yoga holiday villa

Villa La Peña is located in a stunning elevated position in the La Pena area (Natural Park) of Tarifa, nestled between mountain and sea with a panoramic view over miles of sandy beaches. It faces the Strait of Gibraltar, looking out east across to Morocco's Rif Mountains and west to the Port of Tangiers.

Lovely sandy beaches are within a short walking distance of the retreat.  The town of Tarifa is about 10 minutes away by car.  Tarifa is a cosmopolitan town, historically and geographically significant as Mainland Europe's southern most point, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic.
