Food & Kitchen

About the food

Three delicious and healthy, organic, plant-based meals a day are prepared lovingly by our top chefs, using organic whole-foods and organic local produce.
Spring water, organic fair-trade coffee and a selection of organic teas & infusions, fruits and snacks are available to you throughout your stay.
Special diets are also catered for.

All your meals are freshly produced, using organic ingredients:
Seasonal fruits and vegetables are supplied by our local organic farmer - Joan, who delivers to us twice weekly and the wholefoods (grains and pulses) you enjoy come from organic cooperatives in the Valencia province.

At breakfast we serve bread that has been stone-baked especially for you by a local baker - Carmen, using organic flours that have been milled from original (non-modified) forms of wheat (such as Kamult and Spelt) and are proven by natural (sourdough) yeasts.

The extra virgin olive oil we have comes from our own olives and from another local organic farmer – Marino.

About the activities

All activities are optional. It is Your retreat: You choose what to participate in.

Each morning & evening there are 2 yoga classes - one Hatha and one Vinyasa - so class sizes are small and we can give you each direct attention.

If you have something you would particularly like to focus on, you may request a private tuition session with one of our wonderful yoga teachers.

We offer you the use of all the yoga equipment: Mats, straps, blocks & cushions, all of which are made from responsibly sourced materials and where possible produced organically (eg organic cotton).

There is a guided meditation each morning and evening.

The Valle de La Gallinera is one of the most beautiful locations in Europe: The mountains and the valley here bring their own peace and inspiration and you will really enjoy the presence of them.

We offer guided hikes for those who would like to explore the natural beauty that surrounds the retreat centre and we can show you paths for further walks you may enjoy on your own or with fellow guests.

The swimming pool is solar heated and available for your use all year round (for the brave in winter!).

We have extensive gardens where you can find a secluded spot for meditation and enjoy the beautiful views from the comfort of a chair or hammock.

Our library has many interesting books on yoga, meditation, self-help and spirituality, which you are welcome to delve in to while you are with us.
