Peace and quiet

After a windy drive up into the mountains we arrived at a beautiful old and large Spanish Mansion. Surrounded by forests and no sounds except that of the occasional goat or the crickets in the pines it instantly felt a million miles away. Just spending four nights in this location would be relaxing in itself – so it’s really something special when you are being pampered and looked after too!

We got a lovely welcome and introduction to the staff along with a Ginger Margarita mocktail and a healthy canapé before being taken up to our rooms via a tour around the house and grounds.

At dinner we all were given our personal timetables and each Expert gave a little talk. Meals were healthy and delicious and with plentiful herbal teas to accompany the after dinner chatter.

The programme had enough space within it to allow us to have time to relax as well as come away feeling like we had really gained so much knowledge. We went as a couple, stayed in the four poster suite – it was beautiful, with a gorgeous sunken bath-tub in which we enjoyed our first ever Magnesium Bath Soak. All the Experts were real professionals, and spending meal-times together was really a highlight. Such fascinating people with a wealth of information! Four nights felt more like a week we were so well rested when we came home. If you want to feel like you’ve really got away from it all, I really recommend it.
