Here in Gravito we have been preparing the way for transformation
We believe one's environment can inspire the heart and be an ally in the process of finding our true nature within. Gravito is a partially restored hamlet in its own private valley with a gorgeous river running through it. Here we are surrounded by oaks, alders, hawthorns, wild cherry, pines and eucalyptus trees, the hills are covered with heather, gorse and a multitude of wild flowers and plants. There is an idyllic swimming spot on our land too. We are off-grid, producing our own electricity and hot water, we drink from our beautiful spring and use the water from the river. We produce our own organic vegetables and we work with bees. We are a non-profit organisation which promotes reforestation of native trees and conscious awareness.
The gardens have been designed in a way that will enhance your practice and enjoyment. We have two practice places, a very large authentic yurt from Kyrgyzstan (50m2) with an elevated wooden floor, and an organically shaped outdoor wooden platform shaded under the trees (150m2). There are numerous magical spots on the land like our root circle, meditation garden, holy spring valley, private river swimming beach and We have stunning views all around and vast clear skies to marvel at the milky way.
The accommodation for our guests is in comfortable decked tipis. Each tipi has lovely views, is set on an individual terrace and is usually shared between 4 guests. The teacher is offered a private bedroom. The guest bathroom has 3 showers and a veranda overlooking the permaculture garden and there is a spiral compost toilet with a view. We can host up to 25 guests.
Using tasty world recipes with an emphasis on balance and restorative health
The restored barn has an open kitchen/bar and a dining room with an open fire. Our cooking is vegetarian/vegan, using tasty world recipes with an emphasis on balance and restorative health. We also cater for special diets. Organic/bio-dynamic fresh produce comes from our land or is sourced locally, whilst other items are ordered through our own local co-operative via Suma in England.
We also organise local trips to nearby lakes and waterfalls, canoeing and treks. You can walk to our neighbouring village (Gravito is situated on a walking trail) where there is a lush river-beach, cafes and restaurants.
The prices for the 2016 season is 50 euros per person per day for a group of 10+ and 65 euros per person per day for a group of 5+. The facilitator is invited free of charge. We ask for a 30% non-refundable deposit on booking.
We are looking forward to working with you and hosting your retreat in our beloved valley here in Gravito.
I loved it all: utter bliss and serenity. A beautiful backdrop for an incredible couple of yoga retreats. Gravito will always hold a special place in my heart and sets itself apart from the rest in the small details and the warmth and love of our hosts- beautiful Gravito family. Thank you.

A unique and magical place perfect for transformative and restorative work. The food and accommodation are outstanding and staying here feels like a home from home.

Gravito is keeping the dream alive, the fire burning, the connection with Mother Earth. This is a very special place where real transformation is possible.
