This will be the third time I will be taking a group out on this retreat at Tara Casa and everyone who has been on the retreat so far has really enjoyed every part of it.

Local Attractions and Eating Out

We have organised a couple of outings during the week for those of you who would like to venture out to some of the local attractions and have some fun.

Some evenings and afternoons you may like to go out for a drink or a meal either with the group party or by yourself.

We usually hire Taxis to take us out to Cartagene or the local beaches or restaurants to eat out. Alternatively you can stay and relax at the retreat centre and take quiet walks around the olive groves and stunning mountainous area.

Organised Day Trips

We have three day trips if you would like to join us. 

  • A wonderful day in Categene Port – with shopping, sight seeing, coffee and lunch. The Port is stunning and you can visit the museums and other historic sites.

  • A little adventure walk through the mountains (not as daunting as it sounds) probably more like a hill walk really! Anyone can do this at a nice, easy slow pace. Followed by lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking a picturesque beach. Then we get the taxi back to Tara Casa.

Eating Out

Mostly we dine at Tara Casa but to make the evenings a little more interesting we invite our guests if they wish to join us for an evening out in Cartagene for a drink and dinner.

On our last evening we go to a Vegetarian Restaurant in Cartegene where the food is simply wonderful with a huge selection of tasty vegetarians options.

All the outings are optional and not included in the price you pay, the choice is entirely yours to join the group or do your own thing.

Bring out your Creative Side and Create Your Unique Mosaic

Make your own piece of mosaic art work to bring away with you. Our host and tutor Dan is a talented artist who has extensive mosaic making experience and has been teaching mosaic holidays for over 10 years.

Flight Information and Transfers

Your flight is not included in the package, however please do contact me for all the flight and travel information before you book your flight.

Some people like to book onto the same flight and this is ideal if possible. The flight details if you wish to travel with us are below from Stansted Airport to and from Murcia on the 28th April and the 5th May:

Taxi transfers to and from Murcia Airport.

Depending on how many of us are arriving at the airport at the same time, I arrange a minibus for 20 Euros each, return (based on a minimum of 6 people) 

Alternatively, the cost for a cab is 45 Euros each way from Murcia airport to the retreat centre. The journey takes around 25 minutes. 

If you would like us to arrange a cab for you e.g. if you arrive separately, we will organize this for you in advance, or at the time. 

The retreat will make you feel wonderfully relaxed, calm, refreshed and reconnected to yourself.

I stayed here for a week in May 2017 and was hugely impressed with everything about it. The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating. It was clean and with great facilities. Food was excellent and they catered for dietary requirements. The selection of music available by the pool was varied and perfectly suited for many different moods.
There’s not a thing I can think of that would have improved the great experience I had and I’d definitely recommend it for anyone considering staying there.
