The place

Aluenda is a picturesque little village as it used to be, at the foot of the Sierra Vicor, surrounded by wonderful nature where we find the best environment for the practice of yoga and meditation.

Its adobe houses, built with adobe, bring us closer to an architecture that respects the landscape of an area considered to have the greatest biodiversity of flora in Spain.

Comfortable and simple rooms with bathroom in the hotel and in the small houses of the village.
