Andalucía Eco Retreat


The Venue

Independently set within a spacious 4 acre citrus orchard and with private frontage of the stunning Guadalhorce river, Andalucía Eco Retreat is a world away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Malaga, yet only two minutes from the nearest village of Cartama. This specially designed retreat helps you to relax and rejuvenate and in fact, this is one of the core values of the retreat as they endeavour to provide you with the right balance between activity and rest so that your body and mind are able to release tension and stress!

At Andalucía Eco Retreat they are fully aware of the importance of environmental awareness. They hope to carry on planting trees and working with the local community to promote preservation of the unique river environment. Solar energy provides all the hot water, they have their own well stocked vegetable patch, free-range chickens, and orchards of fruit trees meaning guests can enjoy home-grown produce all year round.

The Accommodation

Andalucía Eco Retreat can accommodate a total of 36 guests between the main house and additional sleeping facilities comprised in the following way: In the main house there is a maximum capacity of 18 guests in 8 bedrooms: 3 triple bedrooms (comprising 3 single beds each) and 4 double bedrooms (each with a double or twin beds) + 1 single room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. 

In the grounds there is additional accommodation which can only be used in the warmer summer months. There is a Yurt (a kind of Mongolian tent), which accommodates four people in 2 double beds, with a very special bathroom! There is also a Circus Caravan (given by an old local circus family) where four people can sleep – it has 1 double bed + 2 singles. The caravan has a shower and toilet installed in an old lemon tree, we have to say that a shower under the tree is an experience not to be missed! Furthermore, there are 2 outdoor cabins, which can accommodate 4 people each. Bed linen and towels are provided.


The yoga facilities at Andalucía Eco Retreat are designed to cater for international teachers hosting group yoga retreats. The Yoga Cane Platform, an open-air, natural cane-structure space is perfect for yoga practice and to foster a connection with nature. It has a capacity of 30 people. The Yoga Sala, inside the House, is a natural wood floored Yoga Sala and has aerial yoga facilities, plus all the equipment necessary to practice yoga on the floor. 

The Facilities

In the gardens you will find a ping pong table, football and volleyball pitch as well as a petanque court. There are four mountain bikes and free use of fishing equipment at your disposal. Some guests may just choose to relax in the beautiful gardens where you can hide away in a hammock with a good book, or take a quiet nap. The Jacuzzi has powerful water jets to massage your tired body. All of these extra facilities contribute to restoring optimum health and are great ways to ease your worries away and unwind.

There is also a games room where you can find backgammon, chess, monopoly, scrabble, cards, and plenty of books if you need something to read. A piano, guitar, as well as drums are enjoyed by musical guests.

The Wi-fi connection in the main living area is good and fast, there is also English television and an extensive DVD library if you want to watch a film on the giant outdoor summer cinema.

The Catering

The retreat can be rented with or without catering and is ideally suited to cater for large groups. On the premises there are several different cooking spaces: a large kitchen with 2 patios, 2 ovens, one outdoor pizza oven and one large cooker. Inside the villa is a full-size professional kitchen, specially designed and built with love and care both for professional chefs as well as for self-catering and home cooking.

Located outside in front of the kitchen is a covered outdoor BBQ area, with a large table that seats up to 30 guests. This beautiful space is ideal for dining ¨Al Fresco¨ (outdoor dining).

We would recommend taking the full or half board catering option as this will take all the stress out of the retreat and will also give you the option of eating out at one of the fantastic local restaurants. If you do go for the catering option you will have the opportunity to taste local, traditional Andalusian food. The owners of the retreat grow many of their own vegetables organically and supplement their offer with local organic growers and organic wholesalers. Filtered water, tea, coffee and fruit are provided free of charge, throughout the day. The professional chefs have developed their love of food and culinary skills in combination with their love of art – resulting in mouth-watering and beautifully presented dishes. The retreat can cater for any dietary requirements including vegetarian and vegan.
