Villa Amatista, LanzaroteFor the second time, we come to this beautifully diverse island for a winter retreat!
Beautiful, expansive sandy beaches, with dramatic scenery all around – such as Famara Beach. Only 15 kms from our centre. Great to stroll on it’s wild expanses, and blow the cobwebs away!!
Villa Amatista – 11-18th November 2017. Our retreat centre is an inspiring and tranquil haven, nestled in the unspoilt countryside and vineyards of La Geria Natural Park, Lanzarote. The island itself offers extraordinary beauty and spectacular contrasts. So much so, it became part of the world heritage of protected landscapes and was declared a Biosphere in 1993 by UNESCO. Lanzarote is the oldest and most easterly island of this Spanish archipelago; lying just 86 miles from the African coast – therefore enjoying average sunny, November daytime temperatures of 22 degrees, 25 in the sun! So if you are looking for a very reasonable, “normally” sunny, winter retreat, in a quiet, rural centre, where every contrasting view you see below is within a 20-40 minute drive away….then read on below.
Typical Day 8.00am Breathing, sitting, mindfulness. 8.30am In Studio for Yoga practice 10.15am Brunch Freetime ( resting, relaxing, walking, riding, reading, swimming etc….or nothing!) Snacking if needed. 5.00pm Yoga session, finishing with longer relaxation 7.15pm Dinner 9.00pm Quiet contemplative practice. Everything is optional!
Look out places like this, with stunning circular cafe’s. Looking out to Graciosa. A stunningly beautiful tiny island you could visit by ferry, or take a catamaran tour around it. With beautiful beaches, such as to the left, and surely one of the few places without asphalt in Europe!
