Hello. We have a retreat centre based in the Murcia Region of southern Spain. We offer a variety of retreats ranging from yoga, mindfulness and meditation, to walking and cycling, and discovery retreats.
Our venue is a Spanish country house nestled in a 60-hectare estate, which belongs to a Marquesa. It is filled with the most beautiful flora, fauna and trees and it really does take you back to nature. The house has 5 bedrooms (all twins) with 3 bathrooms, two living rooms, a porch for al-fresco dining and two kitchens (one specifically for guests to use). We have full run of the grounds, so there's plenty of space to relax. Oh, and did we mention we have an aqua-marine pool, which boasts fabulous views.

Help in the house
In return bed and meals will be provided - we don't live at the venue (this is located on the outskirts of a small village), and you will stay with us in our house. You will have your own room and we have two bathrooms.
You can enjoy getting to know what 'real' Spain is really like, sample the local culture and maybe a fiesta or too. Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather and get involved in the local community; and maybe even learn a bit of the language. We will consider singles and couples.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We're a start-up business looking for an experienced and motivated YOGA TEACHER who can work 4-5 hours a day either delivering yoga classes and/or workshops and, when we do not have retreats running, doing general chores such as helping prepare food for meal times, doing some cleaning and changing beds (on change-over days), general household chores and ensuring that guests are happy.
You'll need to have great communication skills, a warm heart, a can-do attitude and a willingness to get stuck in. We're a small, friendly team who like to have fun too!
You will live with us in our townhouse in our traditionally Spanish village that has a lot of Moorish influence. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a couple of terraces.
Meals will normally be provided at the retreat (where you'll probably want to spend most of your time) - when no working, relaxing. But we'll also make sure that food is available for your meals at home, should you prefer.
Although the retreat might seem fairly secluded, it is located approximately 2-3 km in between a large town and a small village. The village has public transport (approximately 4 times a day) where you can explore the towns in the valley or travel into Murcia. From Murcia you can take public transport (bus or train) to Alicante, Cartagena and other towns within the region (some of which have beaches).
We're surrounded by wine country with Jumilla, Yecla and Bullas being within 30 minutes or so drive. There are tennis and padel courts and a number of gyms closeby.
We have mountain bikes on site, there are great walking routes, and a variety of bars and restaurants nearby.
