Boutique Eco Retreat

The Valley Room


Finca El Encanto is a boutique eco-retreat set in a secluded valley near the white village of Casares with far reaching views to Gibraltar and across to Morocco. The owners, Michaela & George, have poured their hearts into this modern yet rustic experience.

Michaela is a key mentor of mine. When she was learning to be a Yoga teacher, 14 year old me and my mum were her guinea pigs. We then continued to take her class and after one evening she mentioned to me that she thought I’d make a good Yoga teacher, the seed was planted!

Set on its own hillside with 30,000 sqm of cork trees and pines to explore, Finca El Encanto is the ideal place to relax and reconnect with nature and oneself. In addition to exploring magical corners on the land, there is a pool, outdoor teak Yoga Shala, luxurious outdoor showers and plenty of spaces to chill.

A note from Olivia

Hosting a retreat has been a dream of mine ever since I became a yoga teacher over four years ago, with every post class chat and hours spent with you all it always leaves me craving more. We’ll have heaps of time to go into detail, open up the dialogue and learn tools for life.

I can’t wait to immerse into the world of Yoga with a group of like-minded people in this magical space.
