Location

We have chosen Cordoba as this is where Jane lives with her husband and two children. It is a beautiful, vibrant and historic Spanish city, where you will be based at the fabulous La Casa del Aceite Apartments for the 3 nights of the retreat.

We have chosen La Casa del Aceite for its great city-centre location and spacious rooms. It’s a beautifully restored 18th-century manor house, which is only a few steps away from the old town and the famous Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, the Mezquita. In fact, all the attractions of the city are within walking distance.

The historic building itself has preserved the most beautiful elements of its architecture, boasting roman columns and a typical Andalucian patio. It houses eight apartments with luxury finishes, ideal for sharing with a friend or family member. The apartments are arranged around a beautiful patio with different areas where we will have our daily Pilates classes and where you can also sit out and enjoy the sunshine or a glass of wine.

 

Getting There

The best way to get to Cordoba is to fly to Malaga airport. There is a Ryanair flight on Tuesday 22nd September departing Dublin at 8.50am and arriving in Malaga at 12.50pm and leaving on the Friday evening (25th September) from Malaga at 8.35pm and we have designed the retreat with these flights in mind.
