Retreat Venue

La Posada Romana is a private estate and luxury finca 2 km from the White Village of Gaucín in beautiful Andalucía. Nestled in 7 acres of national parkland, surrounded by mature trees and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar, Rif Mountains of North Africa and Spanish Sierra Nevada, it is the natural and nurturing home of our weeklong retreats. Paul highly recommends staying onsite whenever possible to get the most out of the relaxing and supportive retreat environment at the finca.

We offer a free shuttle service:

  • Onsite Students – at lunchtime to dine out, shop and sightsee in the village
  • Offsite Students – at class times for training at the finca

bunk-roomBunk Room
This small, west-facing room on the top floor with a bunk bed (long enough for “Tall Paul”, but a bit cagey!) is setup as a child’s room; however, it’s often used by one adult on our retreats–a friend could squeeze in if you’re on a budget as we don’t charge anything extra and there are many common areas for lounging and practising! One toilet is down one floor, and another two toilets and two showers are down two floors. Towels and sheets provided.
