Santillan Yoga Retreat, Spain, Andalucía, Catherine Annis, Scaravelli

Santillan Yoga Retreat Holiday

Santillan Yoga Retreat is a luxurious authentic Andalusian farmhouse with gardens overlooking the sea. Featuring probably the finest yoga studio in the whole of Europe, it is the perfect setting for yoga and meditation.

Set in a secluded location, Santillan is a slice of paradise, located deep in the Spanish countryside, and yet just 30 minutes from Malaga airport.  With sub-tropical gardens, a salt-water swimming pool, and all the luxuries of a hotel, here we can immerse ourselves in yoga, supported by the silence of nature, protected by the surrounding hills.

The Santillan Yoga Retreat was mentioned in The Times as “one of Europe’s best yoga and wellness centres“.  It includes a newly built, beautiful, fully equipped yoga studio, complete with yoga wall, designed with guidance from leading yoga teacher Simon Low.

There are extensive gardens for relaxing and star-gazing under the dark night sky – and there’s a bonfire available too, for those cooler nights.
