Pilates retreat - May 2019

BOOKINGS ruth@ruthtongue.com


May 12-18th 2019 (6 nights) 

This year our home for the week is a beautiful retreat centre near the charming village of Porreres in the centre of the island. Palma airport is just a 20 minute drive and the nearest village is a 20 minute walk away, with bigger towns Llucmajor, Campos and Felanitx a short drive away. 

Facilities

The Finca Son Sion is a brand newly build finca situated on a vast piece of private land with a typical Mediterranean garden. 
On the property there is the very large main house which can easily and comfortably accommodate up to 19 people. There are terraces around the main house offering plenty of opportunities to find a comfortable getaway for everyone. The dining section offers plenty of space for large groups which after dinner may enjoy the fireplace or find a cozy spot on one of the many terraces. Right next to the dining section there is the well equipped kitchen set up in typical Mallorquin style. The interior design is tasteful and of very high quality. Around the large swimming pool (14 x 5 m, 1.80 m deep) there is a very nice terrace with reclining chairs.

The beautiful beach of Es Trenc is a 30 minute drive away. 

We have the wonderful Charlotte Kjaer coming back to prepare her amazing vegetarian food (special dietary requests can also be catered for). Two meals will be provided each day (a filling brunch and a delicious evening meal). 

There are plenty of walks to explore and as the finca is in the area of Benicassem, known for its wonderful vineyards, this year we will also have an optional wine tasting tour on one afternoon around one of the nearby vineyards. 

Now the important info!
