Aspirations offers the opportunity to exchange the hub-ub and routine
of city life for the peace, serenity and cool ambience of
The retreat is the perfect venue to experience the inner-peace and
tranquility which is too often veiled or interrupted during our
everyday lifestyles. The direct contact with the unspoilt, simple
beauty of the natural rural surroundings serves to erode our deep
rooted tensions and to open our heart / mind to that which is
fundamental to a healthy, harmonious way of being.
The core of the retreat without doubt are the magnificent cave
dwellings. Dating back hundreds of years they have been restored and
modernised to provide a unique and refreshing environment. Neither
Spartan nor stark they afford a womb-like quality which produces a
sense of calm security. Inside the temperature of the caves remains a
constant 18 degrees C. and incredible as it may seem, they produce an
audible silence (which has to be witnessed first hand).
By virtue of this extraordinary phenomenon, the sound of the
birdsong, the rustling breeze though the olive groves and the gentle
hush of the swaying palms are all amplified and come clearly into
focus, giving a feeling of security and inner calm, leaving you totally
relaxed and energised.
The Retreat consists of 3 beautifully restored cave houses, each with
its own sitting area for relaxing. There is a three-bedroomed cave
which sleeps up to 7 people, a two-bedroomed cave which sleeps 3 and 1
one-bedroomed cave sleeping 2.
To the front of the cave houses is a large chill out / lounge area of
60 square metres with 3 bathrooms and a kitchen. The lounge/chill out
area is ideal for workshops, training, corporate events or just
chilling out. Together with the tranquil and picturesque surroundings
it is the perfect environment for students / colleagues to learn or
retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Outside you will find a 9m x 4m salt water swimming
