Enjoy outstanding views over the mountains and valley below, this lovingly restored country estate is the ideal place for a yoga teacher training course.
Cortijo Las Monjas is a farmhouse. The farm and the outbuildings are over three hundred years old. The cortijo has been completely and sympathetically restored and divided up into really nice apartments and studios for two people to share with a bedroom with two twin beds, a bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, and dining and living area with wood-burning fireplace, terrace, or porch.
