Experience what real Spain has to offer with our Be curious retreat. Explore the sights and sounds of historic cities as well as the stunning landscapes.
Our Be Curious retreats give you the opportunity to visit some of Spain’s wonderful towns and cities. Within an hour’s drive are Murcia, Cartagena, Alicante, Lorca and Caravaca de la Cruz, so plenty to choose from. All depending on the duration of your stay, you will visit at least 2-3 places of interest. All depending on the time of year and heat, the visits are likely to take place in the morning and you’ll be back at the retreat in time for lunch. You’ll hear about the area you visit and also have some free time to do some exploring independently. We may even take the opportunity to visit the beach.
Ulea is well located for visits to the local vineyards, where you can visit a bodega, sample the wine and you may even have the opportunity to join a wine route, all depending on the time of year.
You’ll probably want some time to relax and take in the scenery, so remember to take a walk down the river in Ulea, it’s beautiful whatever time of year. And remember that two thermal spas are close-by, so make some time to visit there too.
The Spanish love their fiestas and they are definitely something to experience … if you’re with us at the time of a fiesta be prepared for early morning revelry!
Find out what a typical day may consist of, but bear in mind that when we visit a town or city this will take up most of a morning. You’ll be back in time for lunch. Also find out more about our happy retreat recipe.
