Join Laurel Attanasio for an intimate women’s only adventure to the Coast of Spain. Relax beachside, take a dip in the Mediterranean, hike mountains overlooking the coast, and take time to simply be present. Travel with a group of like-minded goddesses while exploring land and sea.
Why is this adventure like no other?
This 7 night/ 8 day adventure will take place in the sleepy beach town of Garraf where you will experience the beaches and mountains of Spain, like a local. Mornings will be spent doing yoga and afternoons will be spent exploring and relaxing. Our on-site host will help us fill every day with unique experiences including a day trip to a local winery for a paella dinner, a hike to a mountaintop monastery, a guided tour through the beachside village of Sitges, a fire ceremony on a cliff overlooking the sea and so much more. You will have time to take in the natural beauty surrounding you and time to simply be present and still. This balanced adventure will allow you to explore, yet get the rest and recovery needed from daily life. Bonus: Our restored villa only has 6 rooms, with a maximum of 12 guests keeping this adventure extremely intimate.
Destination: Garraf, Spain, The Catalonian Coast
Garraf is a tiny beach town nestled at the foot of the Garraf Nature Park. Plaja de Garraf is known to be the best beach off the coast of Barcelona and is a hidden gem not often frequented by tourists. Only 30 minutes by train to the heart of the City and a 5 minute train to the nearby resort town of Sitges. A tranquil paradise for you to enjoy. Mountains and sea will surround you and your days will be spent exploring both.
Getting to Garraf
Getting to Garraf is easy peasy! From the airport, take a 15 minute taxi directly to the casa. Taxi ride will cost between €30-€40. We will help coordinate those flying in at similar times to share taxis. If staying any additional nights in Barcelona before or after, a 38 minute train ride (€5) or a 25 minute tax ride (€50-€60) will bring you to Garraf.
Accommodations: The Casa
A beautifully restored villa will be your home for the week. Steps from the Garraf beach, boasting sea views and a seemingly hidden garden, there is ample space to relax and enjoy.
