Location Moli d’en Salom
A description of our new all year round location
Our new retreat center is located just below the Spanish-French border towards the Costa Brava. Our land is located along a small powerful, very pure river and we live between the menhirs, ritual stone formations around 5500 years old . From gentle hillsides full of vinyards, cypresses and olives, we look at the sea, the Costa Brava on the one side and the ski resorts of Vallter2000 and Andorra on the other. Direct from home there are endless walks, mountainbike and road bike routes in amazing landscape.
The house Moli d’en Salom
The foundations are a medieval mill, hence an ancient dam wall, arches under the house and a lake / natural pool surrounded by 4000m2 of land with vegetable gardens, rose gardens, fruit trees and vines, and a sculpture garden with 13 large iron birds and horses. The house is approximately 350m2 in size and has a living room, a dining room, a yoga room, a library, a yoga terrace, a wood workshop, central heating, 5 bedrooms plus 5 bathrooms, (and will soon have a camper place and a sauna on the riverside.)
Near Figueres, Girona, Dali, North Costa Brava and the Pyrenees
The nearest beautiful coastline and Figueres are near within 20-30 minutes. Figueres has a lovely lively center and the famous Dali museum. Then the beautiful historic city of Girona, the volcanic Garrotxa with forests and many waterfalls, and Perpignan and the Southern French coast are all within 45 minutes drive. Cadaques is a spectacular coastal town on Cap de Creus, and inspiration for Picasso and Dali and Miro.
We go to the beach for walks and yoga once or twice per week in summer. You will enjoy the beautiful quiet pebble and sandy bays.
We live in the middle of nature, amidst beautiful historic villages with terraces and restaurants with French Spanish culinary delights everywhere, and every village has their own wines (DO Emporda) and olive oils.
