About Cortijo San Jose

Set on a hilltop, the 200-year-old Cortijo offers magnificent views of the rolling countryside, olive groves and a laguna which is home to flamingos.

Cortijo San Jose is full of warmth, character and charm, offering beautiful accommodation, a saltwater pool, sun terrace, gardens, a courtyard and plenty of hidden corners for relaxation. The Cortijo is completely off-grid with all power generated by the sun.

Located in the heart of Andalusia, the cultural delights of Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Ronda are just a day trip away.

Retreat programme

There will be two yoga classes each day in the light and airy converted barn space or on a shaded terrace overlooking the hills and olive groves.

Each day will begin with a morning class of meditation and an energising morning flow to gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience.

The afternoon class will be a more restorative class to delve deeper into the postures.

Between yoga classes there will be the chance to explore the beautiful natural surroundings or simply rest and relax. During the week there will be one yoga free day.

Things to do

There will be plenty of time to rest and relax, soak up the sun by the pool, read your book in a hammock or take a massage with a specialised 'Alchemy of Touch' therapist.

Or you can head off for a walk to explore the stunning countryside or take a trip to visit one of the many beautiful and culturally rich towns and cities of Andalusia. Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Ronda are just a day trip away.

Accommodation & food

Cortijo San Jose offers comfortable and spacious bedrooms decorated in Andalusian Moorish style.

There are single, double, twin and triple options to suit all budgets. Most bedrooms are en-suite and overlook the surrounding hills and laguna. Two single occupancy rooms share a bathroom. In the charming garden house with an outdoor lounge area and roof terrace with spectacular views, one single and one twin room share a bathroom.

Throughout the day you will be offered three delicious vegetarian meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared with the freshest seasonal, locally-sourced fruits and vegetables.

Client Reviews

Fantastic retreat in Andalusia. The venue was magical. It was a week of alchemy with brilliant women and a perfect place of restoration and fun.
Celi and Kells at the venue at Cortijo San Jose in Andalucia were really lovely. The vegetarian food was delicious and wholesome, and the cortijo, in real life, is better than in the photos. The place is welcoming and there are plenty of places to relax and unwind. I also loved that the cortijo was full of so much character! Thanks for a great experience!
I had the best time with Amelia in Spain. She was so welcoming, relaxed and genuine on the retreat; brilliant at touching on so many aspects of yoga, giving information and offering as much as the group wanted. She read the group really really well. Her practice is really clear and considered and she was always prepared, professional and organised. It's impossible to consider going on a retreat with anyone else :)
