Cortijo Romero is Spain's leading English language centre for holistic personal growth holidays, open nearly all year. Hidden within an ancient olive grove and cradled by magnificent mountains, its a truly peaceful and restorative retreat, with beautiful abundant gardens, a splendid pool, buildings in traditional style and a uniquely supportive atmosphere.
The centre is situated in Las Alpujarras, the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and national park. Holidays include full board accommodation and an 18-20 hour course, plus optional yoga or tai chi, and a full-day excursion to spectacular mountain villages.
Our centre is not on entirely level ground (being in the mountains) and there are a few steps and gently sloped paths in places. Handrails are in place to assist in these areas, and guests in wheelchairs have visited us. Excursions may be more difficult – please contact us to discuss specific needs.
