Singing Holiday in Spain

The B Naturals are thrilled to be running our very first Singing Holiday at the Cortijo Romero retreat in Southern Spain (Orgiva). 

The mountain setting is stunning, with clear, uplifting air and spectacular views. The centre itself is beautiful, with traditional Andalucian buildings surrounded by gorgeous gardens and a pool scented with jasmine. It’s easy to get to, excellent value for money, and now that the B Naturals are there, there is bound to be a lot more fun and laughter.

The price includes the following:

  • Accommodation,
  • Full board meals
  • Workshops
  • Day trip out with a guide
  • Early-morning Yoga or T’ai Chi
  • Swimming Pool
  • Reasonably priced bar
  • Opportunities to explore the local area
  • Entertainment from your very own resident quartet of teachers

All meals at Cortijo Romero are vegetarian. They will cater for special diets, such as Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan etc for a surcharge of £21.

You will need to make your own travel and insurance arrangements. The nearest airport is Malaga which is a 1.5 hour drive to the retreat. Cortijo Romero can arrange airport transfers for £28 each way.

We also recommend you have a valid EHIC card.

The holiday will be limited to 36 people including teachers. The centre has 11 single rooms, 7 twins and 3 doubles all with a private bath or shower.

How Much

A shared room (twin or double) is £749 per person

A single supplement is £50
