Welcome to Alaya Retreat Centre

Accommodation

Our beautiful farmhouse is made up of a main building and three smaller “houses”. As we are situated in the beautiful wine region of Penedès, an area famous for its cava (Spanish champagne), our houses are named after the various native grapes. Each one is fully equipped with a private bathroom and kitchen and has a private balcony with panoramic views and patio or garden. There are several types of accommodation, depending on the needs of our guests. We offer private rooms with double beds and shared rooms with twin beds. The houses are bright and airy and decorated with warmth and welcome, giving a nice Mediterranean flavor

Alaya

The Alaya is our newly built large activity room (120 m²), that was once an old barn. The word Alaya comes from Sanskrit meaning “base or home “ and is also the ground state of existence or consciousness; the place from which all things arise and exist. The building encapsulates our desire to offer a space that facilitates and allows for the expression of who we are whilst remembering who we were, much like the old barn and how it was used as the storage place for the seeds that were planted to bear fruit.

The building has comfortable accommodation for groups and all the equipment to make organising your event most comfortable.

Extended across two floors, the Alaya also has a chill-out roof terrace with wonderful views of the vineyards in the region. On the ground floor there is a dining room, a bathroom with showers and a dorm with bunk beds. On the upper floor there is a large open shala, a nurturing space specifically designed to support large gatherings. The floor is made of natural oak which brings a lot of warmth and comfort. It has large windows that takes advantage of the natural local light, and of course, they open out to the beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards. On the terrace there are large awnings offering pleasant shade in the warmer months for outdoor activities, rest and relaxation.
