Valle de Vida’s Spanish yoga retreat is large enough to roam around in – 18 acres – but we protect the sense of peace and space by limiting numbers to 20 guests. The main house, El Romero, is a beautifully restored traditional Andalucian finca, with room for 13 guests. It has seven bedrooms, a large kitchen and lounge area and a huge wood burning fireplace used during the colder months. However, for holiday guests who want the full Spanish sensory experience of the mountains at night, our two large teepees bring you closer to Cartama’s nature, as do our 2 new ME-Pods (5.5m diameter 3.5m tall solid domed structures) and the three Geodesic domes.
The teepees and ME-Pods are clean, spacious and very comfortable, with tiled floors, electricity and beautiful bedding, perfect for those with an affinity for the outdoors, but who don’t wish to compromise on comfort. Each is connected with paths winding amongst the almond and olive groves, picked out with solar lights. They all have beautiful views across the valley, the stars glittering, a Spanish night breeze whispering through the trees, the sounds of crickets and cicadas lulling you to sleep.
On a Valle de Vida yoga & wellness holiday in Spain, you can swim in the solar heated salt water pool, have a session in the sauna or steam room, or be treated by one of our experienced therapists. Our wooden hilltop yoga platform, open-sided but shaded, and with spectacular views over the Spanish mountains, has the capacity for 30 students and is a short walk from our yoga retreat centre.
Our 100m2 enclosed courtyard studio is an adaptable inside or outside space, protected from the weather, lending itself particularly well to creative workshops and Bikram and Hot yoga classes.

Our retreat in Spain welcomes groups practicing a broad range of yoga styles and systems, led only by experienced, qualified yoga teachers. Our wooden hilltop yoga platform is an inspirational place in which to practice, peaceful and serene, protected from the sun, and with spectacular views across Spain’s Cartama region and the mountain range. We also have a beautiful 100m2 enclosed courtyard, with adjustable glass curtains, perfect for the occasional days when protection is needed from the weather or to adjust the temperature for Bikram and hot Yoga. It’s not just yoga here; we welcome Pilates, mosaics, martial arts, meditation, music and the arts, as well as tailor made holidays in Spain. And for those who wish to come with families, certain times of the year are dedicated to those with children, with kids’ activities and creche facilities provided.
At Valle de Vida’s Spanish yoga retreat you can walk in the mountains, have an archery lesson, learn Flamenco, a cookery lesson, meditate in a quite special place, read a book under the shade of an olive tree, sketch and paint, guided walks, watch a DVD at our poolside cinema or just relax in the sun.
Day trips: Nearby are the stunning turquoise lakes in Ardales (a jewel in Cartama’s crown) where you can swim or canoe, with beautiful pine forests to explore, as well as Spain’s famous and spectacular El Chorro gorge – with the world famous king's walk across the gorge.
Another option is to let the train take the strain! One of the most beautiful train rides through the countryside takes 1 1/2 hrs from our local station at Pizarra and delivers you to the beautiful town of Ronda with its famous architecture, including Puente Nuevo and its wide array of bars and restaurants.
Another option is a day trip to the old town of Malaga with the Picasso museum, Alcazaba/castle, Chriniguitos and so much more.
Use your yoga holiday in Spain to discover all that Andalusia, Cartama and neighbouring regions have to offer.
