Viva Retreats is the brainchild of Alex Gonnord and Adrian Luty, who own and run Les Passeroses Yoga Retreat and Holiday Centre in south west France - that's our pool above! Described as one of the best yoga centres in the world, our season at Les Passeroses runs from May until October, so we wanted to use our experience to host holidays at other spectacular venues in early Spring and late Autumn.

We recently fell in love with the area of Andalucia in southern Spain, and decided this would be the perfect place - having a warm and sunny year-round climate, a spectacular landscape and some amazing authentic venues.

Viva also offers a second venue in France, as we are collaborating with our friends John and Keith at the wonderful Les Quatre Puits. I am thrilled to able to act as agents for them as part of Viva Retreats and I am looking forward to their first season in 2016. Les Quatre Puits is a handsome manor house set in expansive grounds with a spectacular geodesic dome to practice yoga in. There are a few weeks available for hire in 2017 so teachers please contact me for more information. You can see the Les Quatre Puits calendar in the Our Retreats section.
