Nicole Stone the founder of our specialist holiday company Yoga Breaks in Spain and has this advice:
Best time to go
“Our absolute favourite time in this area of Spain is from February through to end of October with the first glimpse of spring in February with the arrival of the totally intoxicating smell of the pink and white almond blossom through to the end of October when the high vibes of Summer have all but exhausted themselves and the land begins its restorative journey once again into autumn and winter.”
What makes Valencia special?
“Having myself travelled to various countries across the world, I never cease to appreciate the sheer beauty of the Alicante region. We're blessed to have stunning mountain scenery running along the coast from Alicante to Valencia (80 miles), a long coastline of natural sandy bays, beautiful inland villages where time stands still and, due to the underground mountain springs, an abundance of Mediterranean fruits and vegetables all year round. Oh and did I mention the 300+ days of sunshine each year?!”
Why do yoga here?
“Our retreats offer guests a taste of the 'real' Spain. They take place in lovely little unique venues owned by local families who put their heart, soul and care into ensuring our guests have a lovely stay but also, that as our venues are located alongside local Spanish families, our guests get to immerse themselves in a traditional Spanish way of life by witnessing the many local fiestas and celebrations, to eat locally grown seasonal produce bursting with sunshine and of course, our guests love the relaxed environment we create that allows them to slow down and absorb all the well being retreat advice and activities.”
