About Santillan Retreat and Wellness

Santillan Retreat and Wellness was born from the seeds of an ancient Andalucian olive farm estate. Set in a secluded location at the top of its own private valley looking to the sea, Santillan is a 5 hectare estate with the retreat centre at its heart. Located in the serenity of the Spanish countryside, and yet conveniently a mere 35 minutes from Malaga airport, you can immerse yourself in the peaceful sounds of nature in the lovely gardens and surrounding hills. Due to their micro-climate and their love of flora the gardens of Santillan have matured to a tropical Mediterranean paradise, bursting with rare and colorful plants, shrubs, trees and flowers. Some of the best beaches in the area are only a short car ride, or a 45 minute walk from the retreat center. Santillan has numerous paths for hiking and stunning sea views. Santillan offers one of Europe's finest fully equipped yoga studios, spacious en-suite accommodation, a wide range of indoor and outdoor facilities including a salt-water swimming pool.
Their Mediterranean and vegetarian meals are based on organic produce grown under the Spanish sun. The chefs enjoy sharing their popular Spanish-influenced healthy Mediterranean cuisine and their produce is grown in their own organic vegetable gardens or sourced from local farmers.
