What previous guests say

 

An unforgettable experience that allowed me time to look within and increase my awareness.  I would go again without blinking!

Nadia, Dubai - stayed January 2018 

 At a time of crisis in my life, I couldn’t have wished for anywhere more perfect.  Exceeding all my expectations by far, I had time to indulge myself in the beautiful surroundings, reflect and arm myself with life-long skills and, I also had the pleasure of meeting many like-minded people who are now hopefully friends for life.  Two weeks was just perfect.  I really couldn’t recommend it enough.

Debbie, London - stayed January 2018

The Villa is just amazing, cosy and peaceful.  It made me feel at home and I would really love to go back one day.  And Irina Raileanu, well, Irina is simply the best yoga teacher, always smiling and positive with such a good vibe.  This trip has bought miracles to my life. Thank you! Namaste.

Irina, Romania - stayed January 2018

It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week with 11 powerful, kind and beautiful women and 1 amazing guy.  Each one of us was on our own self-discovery journey but it was amazing to share it all together and to get to know some people that I feel connected to for a long time.  Definitely worth the experience!
