One-Off Feature

In the heart of rural Murcia is Tara Casa, a dedicated retreat to relaxation which runs classes in Pilates, Yoga, Weight Loss and Mosaic Art. It is a beautiful, private country house in a typical Spanish village, in what the WHO describe as the healthiest climate in the world!

General Info

Tara Casa is situated just outside Cartagena, in a tiny village called La Magdalena. Tara Casa has been set up to accommodate groups of people coming to stay and use the facilities, whilst learning or improving their Pilates or Yoga practice. They can also learn the basics of the mosaic glass making technique. The meals cooked with local, fresh and organic produce, are wholesome and allow for vegetarian and special diets if required. The schedule can be as exact, or as casual as you want but we want you to enjoy your stay. So, your hosts Tara and Dan will be on hand to help your holiday, be a pleasurable, enjoyable and unique experience.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Visit the nearby beaches and resorts and the historic city of Cartagena, all within 15 minutes. The weather in the Costa Calida/Murcia is very mild (and well known for it), making it an ideal destination for holiday makers in both the summer and winter months. Our area is surrounded and sheltered by hills and high mountains allowing for a kind of micro climate. This limits rainfall, and as a result the region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer, with temperatures rarely falling below 30

Getting There & Local Amenities

Getting There:
Murcia (San Javier) airport is 25 minutes away. Flights are inexpensive even during the school holidays and only approx. 2 hours from the UK.
