You will be welcome to spend time with us deep in the heart of the spectacular countryside of Andalusia. This is a safe and relaxing area with plenty of sunshine.

At our holistic house our passion is to provide a range of natural health awareness under one roof. We take pride in everything we do to improve the physical health and lifestyle of all our valued guests in our 140 year old Spanish former farmhouse bursting with considerable local rustic character.
The house is decorated using Feng-shui to create a loving and joyful environment that nourishes the mind, body and spirit.
Our garden produce is totally organic. One of the main features of the gardens is a breathtaking swimming pool, to which guests have full access. An exquisitely furnished sun terrace overlooks the gardens, the pool and the sierra beyond.

My journey starts in 1989 when we came to Spain for the first time. I fell in love with Andalucia. I felt at home. The lovely combination of mountains and sea was just a dream come true.
We have three daughters. A few years ago I was introduced to healthy eating by my middle daughter who has always been researching the well-being of body, mind and spirit. She had an opportunity to attend a raw food course with California's top chef at the "Matthew Kenny Academy".
Since then I have taken an interest in holistic food and holistic living. My philosophy is that we should follow the heart and venture into the unknown, risking all, leaving the comfort zone and security behind, allowing ourselves to follow the path we came here to fulfill. We should be discovering our talents, letting fear and fragility gradually fade way, strengthening our faith and surrendering ourselves to all possibilities.
My aim is to create an environment where guests feel at home and women travelling alone can feel safely integrated within the community during their stay.
My life-long quest for healthy, ecological and natural living has led me to believe passionately in the importance of educating people in simpler lifestyle options in order to assist them to reduce stress levels, feel at peace and find the happiness we all desire. I believe that by integrating more natural principles into our daily existence we can begin to take control of our lives and reclaim our power.
