A relaxing and re-energising holiday; all the indulgence without the guilt
Luxury Wilderness Yoga & Fitness Retreat, Teruel, Spain
13 - 18th May 2019
Our Spanish Wilderness Retreat makes the most of the amazing location of the Mas De La Serra, nestled in the hills between Barcelona and Valencia. Surrounded by 60 acres of almond groves, pine and oak forests, the converted farmhouse and it's grounds provide the perfect setting for outdoor fitness and yoga sessions, trail running and nature walks. The stunning views across the valleys will keep you motivated while you work out, chill you out while you practice yoga or unwind in the hot tub and pool.
6 days of sunshine, healthy food, exercise and relaxation are guaranteed to bring your body and mind back into balance - the best guilt-free holiday! Flying in and out from Barcelona airport means that you can also combine this with a few days in the buzzing city for the ideal combination of city break and wilderness escape.
Fitness, Yoga & Relaxation
Each day starts with an energising yoga class followed by a nutritious breakfast to set you up for the day ahead. During the day you have four exercise sessions in the fresh air, each targeting a different training system. There is free time to relax in the afternoon, siesta or book yourself a massage, 1:1 personal training or yoga session. Our guided trail runs and hikes are the perfect way to explore the stunning surroundings. A slow-flow yoga session in the evening will wind you down, stretch out those tired muscles and leave you feeling blissed out.

During your stay you will receive a personal fitness and wellness programme with recommendations that you can implement when you get home. This is the perfect kickstart for your fitness and we give you the support to continue with it once you get home.
Stunning accommodation, delicious food & beautiful surroundings
Mas De La Serra combines all the luxury and home comforts of a boutique hotel with the quirky characteristics of a traditional Spanish farmhouse. There are 8 rooms with stunning views, two living rooms, two dining rooms, a home cinema room, steam room, outdoor hot tub and solar-heated pool.
The area known as 'Spanish Tuscany' enjoys a comfortable Mediterranean climate and beautiful wildlife. The almond and olive groves are regularly visited by Ibex in the summer, while wild flowers create a feast for the eyes. There is plenty to do in your free time, from swimming in the natural pools to exploring the local villages.
We don't believe in fad diets or detoxes, instead all meals are a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Jennie, the in-house chef, cooks wonderful Mediterranean dishes with a Spanish and Peruvian twist from locally sourced ingredients. The cellar is stocked with fine wines and the hotel operates an honesty system, so if you feel like indulging after a days exercise there is plenty for you (so long as you can still get up and workout the next day!)
Getting there & optional Barcelona weekend
The Mas De La Serra is 2 1/2 hours from Barcelona airport and there will be a transfer on the arrival and departure days, at a specified time. However if you would like to make your own way to us we can help arrange transport. With the ease of getting from the airport to the city, the retreat lends itself to an additional night or two exploring Barcelona. This allows you to tailor make your holiday with a combination of culture and countryside.
