I recently discovered Extremadura during my travels. It is a wonder. Four disinct seasons, clean air, fresh mountain water, glorious forests, super fertile land, sumptuous food and all set in a stunning medeival town. The treasure of Hervas is only 2.5 hours from Madrid, which has regular and cheap international flights. The bus is easy to figure out - all the way to Hervas. Just down the road, there is the small town of Banos, which has Roman Hot Baths :) ...more treats.
We will practice yoga and mediation twice daily, explore the mountains and surrounding areas, enjoy the local culinary treats and bask in the sun. The trees are literally bursting with fruit at this time of year. The locals make natural swimming pools out of the mountian rivers. It's wonderful.
Non-yogi partners and friends are welcome.
COSTS: £750 per person for 7 nights bed and breakfast, yoga and workshops. Single room supplement applies. This does not include flights or bus to Hervas town. The flights are around £100 return from London to Madrid, and the bus is around 20 euros return.
The average beer and a bite costs 1 euro there. Just to give you an idea of the costs involved ;) It is amazing.
The town is gorgeous and has rivers all over the countryside close by. We can drink from the mountain spring also.
