10 Bedroom Finca surrounded by nature, just a 20 minute drive from Marbella, Located just outside of Monda. This beautiful country villa is perfect for all types of clients: Up until a few years ago, this property was running as a yoga retreat, which can accommodate up to 35 people in a cosy, picturesque environment surrounded by nature.
This property has been built to high standards to withstand the different seasons due to its location, with 45cm thick walls for insulation purposes (as opposed to the standard 38, so no need for AC) regardless it has fully installed central heating. Initially built as a family home, later converted into a boutique yoga retreat, "Yoga Sahasrara". There is enough space in the bottom flat land for a horse stables.
The communal areas are expansive and have open fires for the cooler periods. All plumbing and electrical installations in line with current requirements and maintain capacity for 1500 ltrs of constant hot water, Storage tanks for water up to 12,000 litres central heating (gas/oil).
We have endeavored to maintain a fairly informal atmosphere without compromising the quality of service and amenities. The transition from “family home” to “boutique retreat” has been successful given the feedback and positive reviews received. Some Improvements and refinements will maximise the properties potential.
