Alternative Holiday Centre based in Orgiva, Granada, Spain
This is a holiday centre like no other, nestled among spectacular mountains in enclosed gardens. Almost all visitors comment upon its harmony, beauty and ambience. The original farm house is built around an enclosed courtyard, with the main group room opening off it. It has a large flat roof, used for yoga, tai chi, socialising and star-gazing.
The pool is a curved, natural shape, cocooned in a picturesque, walled enclosure with palm trees, flowers and the scent of jasmine. As the area is completely private, swimming costumes are optional.
There are several splendid garden areas, with abundant sub-tropical flowers, fruit and trees, open and secluded spaces, intriguing scents and colours of every hue. They are often used for course sessions, as well as for sunbathing, quiet times, reading, meditation and games. There is also a beautiful meditation room.
Around a delightful dining patio are grouped an indoor dining room, a lounge with a log fire for chillier winter evenings and a second group room which can also be used for reading, music and other activities.
The site is terraced, which adds to the charm but may not be easy for those with severe physical disabilities, although there are some ramps.
This is not an hotel, but more like a large private home, entirely devoted to personal development holidays. It is truly unique, with a very special beauty.
