"A heartfelt thank you from me too. For me, last week verged on the magical: a micro-environment where we had got it right, well, apart from some of those backward bends!"
(Carol Bang Christennsen July 2014)
"What an amazing week it was. Looking back I sometimes wonder if it was all a dream; the yoga, the cherry trees, filling our bottles with spring water, the amazing food and hospitality. Thanks so much Emma, David and Carrie."
(Sharon Rigby July 2014)
"Thank you once again to Emma and David for a fab week, with lots of variety of activity. Loved the walks in the Sierra Nevada and more locally. Of course, I really enjoyed the visit to Lola's weaving emporium. I felt completely at home there and could have stayed put!! Relaxing by the pool, reading, eating cherries, and, of course, the main activity of the day - yoga - all made for a really enjoyable week."
(Carrie Granthan July 2014)

The first route via Guadix is longer but more time on motorway and less mountain road. As it crosses a high pass from late October to late April you should check with us first to make sure snow isn’t a problem. The second route via Orgiva is more direct but more small windy roads. Both take about 2.5 hours.
