There are two excursions included in your retreat –hiking mountains and such.

You can arrive at the villa any time on the first day. The retreat will end on the final day at 12noon (12:00). But you are welcome to leave whenever it’s convenient on that day.
Can children attend the retreat?
Our policy is that children aged 16 or over can attend the retreat, however it is fundamentally an ‘adult’ environment where people have come to relax and unwind, so it is important that anyone thinking about bringing their ‘child’ respects this. We cannot always guarantee to accept all requests and will assess per enquiry.
