Yoga means unity and is about exploring the body, mind, and spirit through a combination of physical asana, meditation and breathing techniques designed to bring the practitioner into a higher state of being.

This is what our retreats aspire to do – offering the ultimate getaway experience where our guests can focus on nothing but themselves and their practice. You will take your Yoga practice to the next level, surrounded by the breathtaking, raw landscapes of the Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria while staying in a beautiful villa and enjoying the freshest locally inspired meals.

Accommodation:

Our retreat centre is a 9 bedroom luxury villa set in the countryside of Veliko Tarnovo. The space is elegant, but with a simple and informal spirit that you will find welcoming and we hope you will come to think of it as your home away from home. Outside, the villa features a landscaped garden, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts for recreation, and quiet pool area for meditation, reflection and connecting with other participants.

The villa has spacious and fully appointed rooms with ensuite bathrooms and a variety of different sleeping arrangements to insure your complete comfort.

Set on the outskirts of Veliko Turnovo, the villa has a peaceful location surrounded by wooded valley and traditionally cultivated farmland while still remaining close to the villages restaurants and attractions.

Location:

A town with a very rich history and long traditions, Veliko Tarnovo was the capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire. This quiet little town has a beautiful castle, nearby hiking trails, and monasteries worth exploring.

It's an idyllic small town through which the Yantra River runs and terracotta-roofed homes sit on the ridges above it. Though there are all of the modern amenities you’ll require, Veliko Tarnovo manages to maintain an air of Old World charm.

Nearest airport:

Both Sofia and Bucharest have international airports with regular direct flights from many countries in Europe. Veliko Tarnovo is approximately 3 hours from both cities, with well established buss lines and regular busses running between them.

Optional: return transfer from/to the airport: €150

Food:

Food is an intrinsic part of our overall health and wellbeing. We use fresh, locally-sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. Food changes with the seasons, as different months bring different delights to the table. Our cuisine is healthy, exciting and vibrant ─ full of natural flavours and local ingredients.

We’ll do our very best to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. Please let us know if you have any.
