  •  

    Relax your mind.

    Hikes around this gorgeous island. A pottery lesson in Spanish. A visit of a prehistoric village. Walks by the beach...

     

    All your body and your mind need to relax and unwind.

    There is proven research that tells us that we learn better with a relaxed brain.

     

    Immerse in the Majorican Culture

    Visit the town. Eat. Interact with the locals.
     

    The pottery in Mallorca has a very long history. You will receive a pottery

    lesson to experience the creation of such a traditional Majorican craft.

     

    Speak at ease

    We will have a daily (5h) workshop about different topics related with the experience. You will learn vocabulary, estructures of the real Spanish used in conversation.

     

    During the night, we debate.

    Grab a glass of wine or a refreshing juice, make yourself comfortable in our hamoc and we will discuss in our garden facing the sea with a refreshing wind. Debate nights happen after a nice dinner and the long summer nights.
