The retreat will take place in Vejer de la Frontera.

The venue
You will stay at a beautifully restored 17th-century manor house. The rooftop terrace has a panoramic 360-degree view, making it the perfect place to meditate, practice yoga, and soak in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and distant Moroccan coastline.

The accommodation offers 13 comfortably appointed guest retreats where comfort, warmth, and simplicity blend together meticulously to create cosy tranquil havens.

Retreats are furnished with extra-large beds with crisp linens, antique Portuguese furniture from the Goan jungle, floor heating, air-conditioning, and contemporary open plan bathrooms with showers and/or bathtubs.

Food
Vivir promises to serve only the freshest produce, free of pesticides and other chemicals. The fresh vegetables are grown at the “Viviendo en el Campo” garden which is a local project of ecological and certified organic agriculture. Located within a 20-minute walk from Vejer, the garden is situated on a hillside well protected from the east wind (Levante) that can create strong winds throughout the coastal villages of Cádiz. An interesting aspect of “Viviendo en el Campo” is the recovery of missing native seed cultures indigenous to the area.

All the meals in the program are created and prepared by the gourmet chef, Alberto, who brings his own masterful and creative touches to each of the healthy dishes offered to Vivir guests. As the owner of a successful restaurant in Vejer, Alberto is very familiar with organic locally sourced cuisine. His expertise is often shared at culinary conferences, where he offers presentations regarding the relationship between the environment and food sources. He has collaborated on projects with top-level regional chefs and hoteliers as well as having several recommendations in the Michelin guide.

At Vivir, guests enjoy seasonal menus centred around healthy, delicious, and inspired dishes. The culinary approach is to use only organic garden fresh, high-quality ingredients, infusing them with natural flavours. All fruits and vegetables are sourced from small local organic producers. All fish are raised and harvested from a local saltwater estuary under a world-acclaimed sustainable and organic fishing program. Organic pescatarian or vegetarian dishes are prepared by a gourmet chef.

At the conclusion of the daily hiking tours, guests will be met by Vivir team members at a designated location with an elegant picnic spread consisting of a healthy and delicious organic luncheon. The lunch is casual and elegantly rustic, surrounded by nature and the beauty of Andalusia.

 If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation

Program

HIKING: Discover the natural beauty
The Vivir wellness program offers daily guided hiking excursions through the magnificent and varied Andalusian countryside. What better way to recharge your physical and mental health than by connecting with nature? Balance your heart, soul, and spirit while experiencing views of Africa and Cape Trafalgar, breathing in the aromas of pine forests, or listening to the sounds of waves breaking on the Andalusian cliffs.

The Andalusian countryside
The striking natural beauty and majestic terrain of Andalusia are prime for exploration. A variety of hiking tours are designed specifically to promote physical well-being and inspire, nurture, and renew the soul. Guests will discover many memorable hiking tours set within the incredible Andalusian countryside and along the Atlantic coastline.

The tours
Each Tour has been carefully planned to give you a unique experience of Andalusia

BODY TONING: Increase muscle tone, flexibility, and strengthen your core
The key to a balanced wellness lifestyle is to add stretching and muscle contouring along with cardio/aerobic exercise. Daily afternoon stretching and muscle toning sessions work in perfect harmony with the cardio benefIts from morning hikes. Toning your body doesn’t just improve your overall appearance but can help your posture, improve strength and energy, give you more confidence, and can even help prevent certain diseases.

A more enjoyable lifestyle
With a healthier and well-toned body, you’ll be able to enjoy more experiences. Increased stamina results in the ability to participate in physical activities that lead to a more enjoyable lifestyle. Whether you feel overworked, overweight, or just need some time to unplug and focus on your well-being, at Vivir, the goal is to guide and motivate you towards regaining control of your health

YOGA: Reduce your stress level
Guests will be guided through morning and afternoon yoga/meditation sessions by the expert yoga instructor whose knowledge, experience, and techniques will help guests focus on their energy centres, helping them feel more balanced physically, energetically, and emotionally.

  • Vinyasa - Slow flow yoga
Slow flow yoga or Vinyasa is a dynamic form of yoga with a slow rhythm, combining movements with controlled respiration. By synchronizing body movement with conscious breathing, stress levels are dramatically decreased. Other benefits include releasing emotional blocks in order to increase mental clarity and open up personal awareness. Slow flow yoga is recommended for guests of all levels, regardless of age and physical condition.

Yoga sessions
The yoga sessions are meticulously planned to ensure your complete relaxation and inner well-being.

Morning session: 20 minutes each day

  • Meditation for five minutes: Includes a guided meditation before the physical practise in order to feel more balanced and focused for the rest of the day. This relaxation exercise is vital for connecting with inner peace in order to properly relax, therefore, balancing body and mind in a more complete way.

Afternoon session: 45 minutes each day

  • Arrival relaxation for five minutes: Same as the morning guided meditation.
