A refreshing place designed to help its visitors take the first steps to self-fulfillment, Cortijo Romero is set amongst the colourful, vibrant mountains of southern Spain. Crisp, white walls surround idyllic gardens smothered in jasmine and dotted with shady, twisting tropical trees, while the accommodation is simple, clean and Spanish country style, with terra cotta tiled floors, homely, mistmatched bedlinen and sensible wooden furniture.
Most guests come alone, for anything from a re-assessment of their values to a fitness and detox blitz – or even just a little taste of peace and freedom. Days can be filled with whatever takes your fancy. Yoga, reiki, reflexology, shiatsu and aromatherapy are all on offer, but there are also workshops available with language tutors, life coaches and therapists, to help you discover your inner clown, learn to write, live from the heart, practice bioenergetics or just speak Spanish. Many of the workshops and classes are also great for groups of friends and corporate teams.
Prices include the cost of all the healthy, vegetarian meals provided on site but you can sneak off to a local restaurant in the town of Orgiva, or venture further afield for a day hiking in the hills, or in beautiful Granada.
