The week will include separate classes for the more advanced and for those new to Pilates, as well as workshops, along with the usual warm Canarian sunshine and beautiful beaches. We will be limiting the spaces on the course for optimum teacher attention and to help each student with development and progression. There will be extra classes to accommodate all levels and private instruction is also available as an optional extra. Classes take place on our beautiful wooden shala in the villa garden so you can breathe in that fresh Fuerteventura air.
You can discover this world-class retreat experience on the sun-blessed island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. The island combines Spanish culture with an African climate, so you can enjoy the taste of tapas, the sounds of Spanish and the soothing warmth of the sun whatever the season. Fuerteventura is an island of volcanoes and stunning coastline, picturesque harbours and cool cafes. The beaches look Caribbean, the sand dunes are a film set and the waves give it the nickname ‘the Hawaii of the Atlantic’.
This special retreat week takes place at Villa Azul in Fuerteventura. The villa is beautifully situated nestled amongst the volcanoes with views to the sea. Offering different levels of accommodation to suit all budgets, we are sure to have the perfect place for you to lay your head.
Daily brunch (fruit salad, selection of cereals, home-made bread, eggs, salad, cheese, pancakes, juice, herbal teas and coffee) is served after the morning session.
Five delicious and healthy evening meals are included within the cost of the course, designed and served by our nutrition advisor, Jo, There are self-catering facilities at the villa and within five minutes walk you will find a supermarket, a wonderful bakery and two of the islands best restaurants.
In between classes, therapies and food you can simply relax around the pool or at the beach, go surfing or explore the island. We provide a transfer to the beach, run a volcano hike, offer cycle hire, surfing packages and arrange horse riding, allowing you to really make the most of your time away with the activities you love.
Our holistic retreat has a team of experienced therapists offering complementary therapies, holistic massage and beauty treatments. You will receive one full body massage as part of your retreat package.
There is a wide choice of accommodation at the villa, including apartments, private and shared rooms and our glamping experience in the Sahara tent – something for every taste and budget. Each room is decorated with love and care and the villa has a fun and laid-back atmosphere so you can really relax, feel at home and get the most from your wellbeing holiday.
We hope to be welcoming you at Villa Azul soon!
