Swap the festive season frenzy and shake off the winter blues for a healthy holiday in a luxury Christmas retreat in southern Spain.
We know Christmas is a very busy time. The pressure of having the ‘perfect’ Christmas can be overwhelming as it often involves back to back social occasions and braving the crammed department stores. It’s easy to overindulge in the lead up to the holidays as tins of sweets and chocolates appear on desks, and there’s so much tempting food and drink on supermarket shelves.
Why not make this year different by treating yourself to a pre-Christmas break? A few days away in southern Spain will leave you energized, clear and ready to tackle those tangled Christmas-tree lights.
The Urban Villa in Southern Spain will help you feel less sluggish in the run-up to Santa’s arrival plus with the combination of healthy cuisine, yoga classes, nutrition workshops, healthy cooking, meditation, plus pampering and rest and relaxation time which is sure to relieve the stresses the countdown to Christmas can cause.
Special introductory prices from just 899€ per person
Including yoga, food (naturopathy meals & healthy food are included!) & 7-day luxury accommodation
