About Finca Argayall

Finca Argayall is one of the best kept secrets of the Canary Islands. This magical venue on the unspoilt island of La Gomera, sits nestled in the cliffs in a secluded bay. With a spectacularly diverse landscape. The contrast of the rainforest, unspoilt beaches and small fishing towns makes a visit to this island a full and rich experience.

The venue itself runs as a community and welcomes others to experience and respect this beautiful and unique life. There is an organic farm, tropical gardens, a natural spring, two swimming pools and the beach a few steps away.

A wonderful opportunity to take some luxurious time for yourself, to restore and nourish mind, body and soul in the truly healing environment of La Finca. There will be two 90 minute yoga classes each day, suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day.

The daily programme

Jess will offer two sessions each day from the morning of 15 April. The morning practice will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, slowly moving and building into a flowing and dynamic sequence.

There will be time set aside in the day to explore and take in the stunning beauty of the surroundings, relax by the pool or dip into the sea just a few steps away. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle and restorative class.

The holiday is suitable for all levels of ability. There will be one yoga free day. Please note that due to the unique set up at La Finca, you will also have an opportunity to join their own programme should you so wish. This might include: silent meditation, shamanic dance or even more yoga - a wonderful opportunity to open up and explore!

Things to do

Throughout each day you will be offered three organic vegetarian meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Apart from one evening when we can go into the nearby village to taste the culinary delights offered locally. In the village you can also book to go mountain biking, dolphin watching and kayaking. There are plenty of walks on offer on this beautiful island, from traditional fishing villages to rain-forests, banana plantations and secluded sandy beaches.

Or you might just want to stay within the beauty of the venue itself, relaxing by one of the two pools or simply take a few steps onto the beach and go for a swim in the warm, blue sea. Treatments such as massage and homeopathy are also available at an additional cost.

Accommodation

There is a selection of uniquely designed rooms.

The terrace rooms with a garden view are quiet, comfortable and prettily decorated with a shared shady veranda that overlooks the tropical gardens. Bathroom facilities are closeby and shared.

The charming and comfortable garden huts are spacious and airy with a private seated area outside. They are set in the lush green gardens with the serene sounds of bird song and the sea.

The pyramid and A-frame are both well furnished little houses with a double bed in this paradise garden with a sitting space outside. The pyramid is ideal for a couple sharing and the A-frame is perfect for single occupancy. All garden accommodation has plentiful shared bathroom facilities close by.

The terrace rooms with a seaview have doors that open out onto a second shared veranda with stunning ocean views. These rooms have en suite bathroom facilites.

There are a very limited number of rooms for single occupancy.

Comments

Jess Horn is one of the best yoga teachers I have even been taught by. Her voice is so relaxing, it feels like being in a meditation session at the same time. She also runs yoga retreats, again its on my to-do list.
Thank you so much for a wonderful retreat. It couldn't have been more perfect - the yoga was really powerful and pushed me deeper than I could ever get in a regular class and the close attention and corrections made me feel like I was being completely looked after, the food was delicious, the venue cosy and the rest of the group made the retreat full of laughter and fun. I can't wait for the next one.

Thank you Jessica Horn for the most wonderful yoga retreat. Feeling so calm & happy (and excited about the beginning of a new journey). I had literally no yoga & meditation experience before yet this didn't matter at all, the retreat is for all levels of yogis. Jess is a truly fantastic teacher. Thank you.
Helen
Jess is an amazing teacher as we were a mixed group and she was able to accommodate all levels, going deeper in poses if she sensed people were able. She guides you through the poses with a reminder of breathing which I personally loves as it connects the mind and body energy. I came away feeling that mind and body were awoken, feelingly lighter and refreshed.
Karen
I had a truly blissful time in La Gomera, it's such a beautiful, elemental environment to come back to yourself in. Kate was a brilliant teacher, genuinely inspiring and great at supporting the group and the whole blend of the week really worked. Thank you so much, I would definitely book with you again.
Sally

Travel Arrangements

For La Gomera fly to Tenerife South. There are several airlines that fly to this airport. There are links below for some of them:

Skyscanner
Thomson
Ryanair
Easyjet
Thomas Cook

It is best to arrive before midday if possible to take the afternoon ferry across to La Gomera. From the airport you will take a taxi to Los Cristianos ferry port, a 15 minute journey. From here you will take a ferry to the island of La Gomera. The ferry takes about 45 minutes and costs between 30 - 40 euros. From San Sebastian the group can take a taxi together direct to Finca Argayall or alternatively there is a bus.
For the return we recommend you take an afternoon flight. It is a little adventure to get to the Finca but really worth it for such a special place.
