Read the following if you are interested in staying over the autumn / winter / spring time  2017 / 2018 :-

WINTER IN IBIZA from today until our Opening Date of 1st April 2017

If you would like to join us during the winter months , you will experience a whole different time in Benirras - the bars and restaurants close in early November . The beach is quiet apart from the odd dog walker or hippy smoking a joint and playing guitar.  The Sunday drumming sessions are still in full swing , a hundred or so folk gather around a camp fire and play bongos until it becomes too cold to continue.  

The area is fabulous , a real retrreat vibe but without the yoga as we are closed.  Being that we have alot of accommodation and alot of work takes place during the winter. 

If you join us in addition to some of the items mentioned in the summer season the types of volunteer duties in the winter include :

Help with the closing of the retreat which involves , stacking beds , washing and pressing all laundry ,emptying of pagodas of bits and pieces , conditioning the wood where necessary , doing some much needed gardening, painting a room or two , tidying and cleaning Villa Nova after the long season , feeding the duck , cats and dog walking. Organisation of the garage area.   Clean the vehicles and mopeds , cover and store for the winter months.  Some office work , assist with book keeping and filing .

We currently (14.2.17) have one volunteer but could do with one more to work in a small team.
