WE WOULD LOVE TO MEET & GREET YOU IN THE HAMLET! **


Retreat Yourself. All-inclusively.


Your relaxation is our primary goal. We feel very fortunate to work with wonderful and inspiring instructors. All of them are introduced in their respective retreats. Please meet and join them – we promise, they are amazing!

On top of the awesome team, we make our retreats as all-inclusive as it can get. So much so, that you may as well forget your wallet at home. A stress-free stay is guaranteed! If you stay more than a weekend, we’ll be happy to offer you sightseeing visits on top of the instructed sessions. That is because we think our region is definitely worth the while. And we believe you’ll agree once you’ve visited.

Have a look at the Holiday Rentals page for more details on the guest rooms as well as the common areas indoors and outdoors. To learn more about our eco-friendly lifestyle and sustainable choices, please read more on the Green Hamlet page.
