With easy access from Barcelona, La Vella Farga sits in the foothills of the Pyrenees and provides a luxurious, contemporary boutique hideaway that’s perfect for an in:spa retreat. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic views, outdoor heated swimming pool, expansive terraces, superb accommodation, indoor and outdoor yoga and fitness training spaces, plus wonderful hiking.
La Vella Farga (which means The Old Forge) dates from 1036 and is now an impressive cluster of restored stone buildings and expansive terraces with fabulous 360 degree panoramic views. It’s just as gorgeous inside as it is outside, with fabulously luxurious and spacious bedrooms and suites, al fresco and indoor dining, and elegant sitting rooms and peaceful corners.
The large outdoor heated swimming pool is perfect for relaxing beside or for enjoying a few lengths. And, being so close to the Pyrenees, La Vella Farga is well placed for some fantastic hiking – which we can organise with our hiking guides to suit all fitness levels.
This lovely boutique hotel has just 14 bedrooms and suites and is exclusively for in:spa guests during our retreats. It’s a wonderful retreat destination!
The in:spa team comprises only the most experienced and highly-regarded health professionals for each retreat, and you’ll have constant access to our outstanding and knowledgeable yoga instructors, personal trainers, nutritionists, specialist chefs, and massage therapists. You’ll also be looked after by one of our dedicated retreat hosts.
We fly out each world-class team from London for every retreat, so you can always be sure that you’re always in excellent hands.
No one wants to be worrying about money and budgets while on holiday. So, every in:spa retreat is fully inclusive. Once you have paid for your holiday, you don’t need to think about money again*. Here’s what’s included on a 5 night express retreat:
*Most of our guests do like to bring some local currency so they can take an afternoon out to go shopping or visit some of the local sights. There is a charge for laundry services.
**Guests can enjoy hikes at their own pace as there are always at least 3 guides. Yoga and fitness classes are tailored to individual levels too.
***Airport transfers are complimentary for returning guests, otherwise they are £30 each way.
in:spa retreats are not boot camps. We ask you to tell us about your health and fitness before you arrive, together with your likes and dislikes, so we can tailor our activities for each guest and you are encouraged to enjoy only as many of the activities as you would like.
The activities on offer vary according to the location, season and temperature, so every trip is unique. Here is an example of a ‘5 night express’ schedule.
Our upcoming getaways offer everything you get from a detox retreat, a fitness holiday and spa break, so you can energise your body, invigorate your senses, detoxify your system, normalise your body weight and calm your mind.
We are really looking forward to our 5 night express retreat in October, and will be adding several 2018 retreat dates for Catalonia shortly.
