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 Andalucia, 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 local 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 Andalucia. Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Ronda are just a day trip away.

Accommodation & food

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

There are single, double, twin and triple options to suit all budgets. Two single occupancy rooms share a bathroom, all other bedrooms are en-suite and most overlook the surrounding hills and laguna.

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

The yoga retreat with Nancy Lea was fabulous. I really enjoyed it in all respects - especially getting to meet and hang out with a great group of friendly and fun fellow yogis. I appreciated how well organized and easy it was to interact with YOAS throughout with the follow-up to questions etc. I hope to be able to join another YOAS retreat in the future.
My week was one of the best I’ve ever had, Nancy was a wonderful teacher, we were so lucky to pick her week, fantastic venue, everything ticked all the boxes.
Nancy is an amazing, patient, enthusiastic and wonderful yoga teacher whose knowledge is broad and enthusiasm infectious. As someone on their first yoga holiday the bar has been set very high, I learnt so much that I am still trying to take it all in, but I came home better than I went, wanting to do and learn more. Nancy didn't just teach us yoga, the poses and flows, she taught us about how important it is in our daily lives and how it can better us and help us deal with the trials and tribulations in our hectic and stressful lives. I can honestly say this was one of the best holidays of my life, thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
