More Info

LOCATION

Located on a hilltop, the retreat overlooks the countryside, the distant Sierra Cabrera mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. It is approximately 7 miles from the stunning hilltop town of Mojacar, which sits above the golden beaches of its coastal resort (approx. 20-minutes drive). The region of Andalucia is known for its whitewash villages, Moorish architecture and is the home of flamenco.

TEMPERATURE 

You can expect very pleasant temperatures during the day. The average maximum daytime temperature lies around 21°C. 

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY

Solar Power
The retreat currently has 48 solar panels on the roof of the main house and 12 separate solar panels on the Pool House which operate the solar pump for the main pool. They also have 18 heat absorption pads on the Pool Bar roof which are solely used for heating the swimming pool. The retreat has 5 outback inverters which were originally designed by the US military which charge our 44 batteries which supply us with our electricity. The water for the house is also heated by solar power and the tank and system are on the roof.

Wind Power
The retreat has a 5.5 kilowatt wind turbine which also sends power through our inverters and can produce approximately 8,000 kilowatts per year in an average of 12 mph winds.

Generator
The house has an 35KVA imola back-up generator which they have to use occasionally.

PLASTIC

We respectfully ask that you bring your own water bottle so that you can refill them on site. The retreat does sell refillable water bottles in their shop however. This is to cut down the use of plastic.

 

RECYCLING

The retreat have recycling bins placed in the kitchen of the main house and by the pool, which are emptied regularly. The retreat recycles plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass. They also compost uncooked food waste.

WATER

Water is an issue for the retreat as they are in the desert and have no personal spring water.

The retreat has dug out 2 wells but the water has quite a high saline content which limits what they can do with it in the garden due to the needs of the trees and vegetation.

However, they do use recycled water to irrigate the gardens, and have quite a complex system that collects all of the rainwater in a 55,000 litre tank underneath the Healing Garden.

The retreat also have a quota of agricultural water which they get weekly and store in one of their underground tanks.

For the orchards and kitchen gardens at the side and bottom of the land they have a remarkable wastewater treatment plant that takes our grey and black water and cleans it using a combination of oxygen and bacteria before sending it out onto our fruit trees and other plants. The retreats orchards are thriving and this is an exciting and innovative system that will be more commonly used around the world in the future.

The water for the guests is fresh mountain spring water coming from Alamilla and they have 40,000 litres delivered weekly. This is then cleaned and filtered for drinking.

The retreat has drinking taps by every sink and have three drinking fountains around the retreat where guests can fill up their water bottles
