Location

Alicante, Spain

Altea is without doubt one of the most charming towns to be found on Spain’s ‘White Coast’, located in the region of Alicante on the Costa Blanca. Retaining its own unique Spanish charm in spite of its increasing tourism and popularity, it lies directly by the sea in the midst of a beautiful bay and is surrounding by rugged mountains - really picturesque! 


Situated on a steep hillside a short walk from the sea, with stunning views over the Bay of Altea, it is a town steeped in history and has long been a popular retreat for artists, sculptors and writers. With the recent addition of the University of Culture and Fine Arts and a new concert hall Altea has been bestowed the official title of the 'Cultural Capital of the Valencian region'.


The city centre is a treasure trove of shops, craft galleries, restaurants and little white-washed buildings adorned with flowers - all waiting to be discovered in the winding and cobbled medieval lanes, look for the famous blue-domed church of the Virgin de Consuelo at the top of these lanes; it is well worth the walk, the views from the top overlooking the bay of Altea with the mountain backdrop are nothing short of spectacular!


Altea is located a ten minute drive North of Benidorm, about 1 hour from Alicante along the N-332 and is one of the most memorable coastal towns of the Costa Blanca. Alicante El Altet Airport is the closest one. Alsa Buses runs services from the airport to Altea. The town is also a stop in the Alicante Tram system.

Food

This retreat includes healthy vegetarian and vegan dishes - with fish options too - to ensure you feel adequately nourished and energised during your stay. Each day begins with some fresh fruits and herbal teas to help you slowly awaken before morning class then, after class, there's a great breakfast spread of fruits, wholesome cereals, non dairy yogurts, fresh juices, Spanish tortilla, local tomatoes, Spanish cold cuts and local cheeses, breads, pastries and croissants plus tea, coffee and a fresh cake baked each day by the lovely hotel owner Vincenta. We'll dine at the hotel on all but 2 evenings. On these 2 eves your taste-buds are free to explore the local dining options in nearby Altea - a chance to meet and mingle with the locals!

Located in the coastal town of Altea and hour along the coast from Alicante airport, this lovely little hotel has a country setting with amazing views to nearby mountains and the sea and yet, is an easy 10 minute walk to the 'old town' of Altea - considered to be one of the prettiest in this area - and just 25 minutes to the beach. 


The building is over 300 years old and began life as an olive farm before being transformed into a really special peaceful venue perfect for our yoga retreats. The 22 spacious rooms are spread over two floors and have wonderful facilities to help you unwind and relax. 


The first floor is accessed by the lift or the stairs and has single rooms, double rooms, twin rooms, a disabled friendly room, a Superior Double room with a canopy bed and a Junior Suite. Designed to enhance guest comfort and satisfaction, the hotel has balconies offer breathtaking views over the enchanting surroundings. The second floor has 7 double rooms with terrace or balcony and views to the garden, pool, mountains and surroundings.


There is a small gym and sauna, a spacious yoga studio with lovely mountain views and a restaurant that creates delicious vegetarian and fish dishes for guests whilst Vincenta – the hotel owner – brings fresh eggs from her happy hens and bakes a delicious breakfast cake for us every day – heaven!


To join this retreat, fly to Alicante Airport and from there you can join a private group transfer service with other retreat guests. Please ask for the transfer times before you book flights. Alternatively, you can rent a car if you'd like to explore the countryside and the neighboring towns or you can try riding the bus or the train from Alicante city centre.
