About the accommodation

This retreat takes place in the Netherlands. The retreat location “Aan De Hei” (near Hilversum) is part of Buitenplaats De Hoorneboeg, a magnificent property of 13 hectares with its own forest, ancient winding paths and a picturesque hill in the center. The restoration of the two historic farms was completed in the spring of 2018 with the intention of creating an inspiring location to host transformational retreats.
On the property you can wander through the winding forest paths or you can take a walk in the heath (“de Hei”). It is a space to relax and just get away from the hectic pace of our daily lives, and to connect with yourself, nature and each other. The serene grounds offer any number of beautiful spots for meditation or journaling.

The two farmhouses are connected to each other through a corridor and are solely used by the group for the yoga retreat. Both houses overlook the vast heath and lie on the edge of woodland. There is a large practice room, a library with a fireplace stove, a spacious living room also with a fireplace and a spa with sauna and relaxation area overlooking the heath. There is a choice of single and double rooms on the upper floors, all with private bathrooms. There is also a treatment room where you can book a massage from one of the expert therapists available on site. There is a beautiful healthy menu planned for the weekend of vegetarian food, with vegan, gluten free options. Enjoy pure food and you’ll notice the effect it has on your body as well as your mind.

Travel information

Arrival is scheduled between 2 and 3pm on Monday 30 December 2024 at De Hoorneboeg. The retreat center is unable to receive guests before that time, so please organize travel arrangements accordingly. Your program will start at 3:30pm.

Getting There

By car
The Hoorneboeg is centrally located in the Netherlands. You can easily reach the venue by car, using the exit Hilversum on the A27. Your visit starts with a peaceful ride through a kilometer-long lane of trees along the heath and woodland which opens onto the 13-hectare estate. There is a dedicated parking lot on the side of the property. The rest of the estate is completely car-free and you can reach the farmhouses by a short walk from your car through the forest.

By public transport
The area is also well served by public transport, with a bus stop at the beginning of the driveway (bus 58 from Hilversum). From here, it is a nice walk along the heath and woods, about 10 minutes to the country estate. From the railway station in Hilversum you can also bike 15 minutes to the Hoorneboeg (you can rent an OV-fiets at the railway station or bring your own on the train) or arrange for a taxi.

By plane
We recommend to fly into Amsterdam airport. Once you have collected your baggage, go to the central meeting hall/exit. Purchase a train ticket at the yellow/blue machines or at the ticket counter. Follow the signs to the platform or ask for directions at the ticket counter and board the train to Hilversum. It will be about a 10-minute train ride. Once you arrive at the Hilversum train station, there are taxis waiting at the exit of the station. The taxi ride to the retreat center is only about 10 minutes.
Flying into Eindhoven airport is also a good option and sometimes offers better times for your particular route, though it is farther from the retreat location in Hilversum.
