The Ultimate Mind and Body Retreat
Our promise to you …
To show you how to look and feel the very best you can at any age or stage in life.
What type of retreat is it?
We lovingly refer to this as our natural anti-aging retreat.
Why choose this retreat?
As we journey through life and cope with all the stresses and strains that it places upon us we do of course age, and as we age we begin to think that nothing looks or feels the way it used to, our hair, skin, and body shape, they all change as we move through life.....so before you resort to drastic measures like surgery, there are a lot of positive things we can do naturally to improve our general health and well-being, to help us look and feel confident and fabulous whatever our age…
What ages are the women who choose this retreat ?
When we originally put together the brief for this retreat, we envisaged it would be women our age that it would appeal to...the "forty somethings" but we have been surprised to find it actually attracts women of all ages from late twenties to those in their seventies...
The Ultimate Mind and Body Holiday is your opportunity to press the re-set button on how you look, feel and think…forever.

Where are our retreats held?
The Ultimate Mind and Body holiday is based in the green heart of the Northern Costa Blanca, in a pretty and peaceful location between the coast hugging mountains and the sea.
The Northern Costa Blanca is a sleepy stretch of coastline scattered with numerous monasteries, watch towers and small castles, the legacy of over 400 years of wars between the Moors and the Christians.
The World Health Organization has declared the regions climate to be "one of the healthiest anywhere in the world".
It is the stunning and imposing mountain chain that protects the area and gives it such a special and mild micro climate, Along the coastline the clear blue of the Mediterranean has a green backdrop of terraced farmland filled with vineyards, and hillsides dotted with almond, nispero , orange and lemon groves, and where fig, pomegranate and carob trees grow at the roadsides, and where beyond the farmland sit the imposing mountain ranges where pine trees, wild rosemary and thyme perfume the air.
