C’an Buri is a recently restored, traditional Majorcan Finca, situated in an acre and a half of almond and olive orchard. Deep in the countryside just outside the little town of Moscari, (which boasts the best fish restaurant on the Island). It is right off the ‘tourist track’ and ideal if you need real peace and quiet. (All you hear at night is the sound of goat bells!)
However, it is also very close to ‘civilisation’, good restaurants (fabulous ones at Selva, which is only ten minutes away) and beach/night life. It only takes half an hour to drive to Palma (the capital of Majorca and rapidly becoming a prodigious cultural centre) and fifteen minutes to get to the beautiful old town of Pollensa and the beaches of Cala san Vicenc, Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia. It takes forty minutes to drive to the famous Formentor beach. The owner is a Life Coach, Psychotherapist and offers spiritual retreats in Majorca plus ongoing spiritual growth workshops.
The aim of a retreat is, quite literally, to step away from the stresses and struggles of the outside world. It is to 'stop' our normal everyway reality - and endeavour to enter new and deeper and quieter worlds which are more nourishing to the soul and where one can ask oneself new questions about one's life.All the retreats explore different themes of being where this can be more possible. And because Majorca is such a soulful place, it is a beautiful environment to do this. Therefore enjoying the island - visiting beaches or caves, going for walks, exploring sacred sites, enjoying the local markets and savouring the local Majorcan cuisine and enjoying wine with our dinner, etc. - is an integral part of the process. Because each group will be intentionally small, there will be plenty of time for individual processing and coaching. Most retreats will follow the format of an early morning meditation, meeting as a group until lunch, having most of the after noon off (to enjoy the island), gathering together again just before dinner for more meditation, and meeting again after dinner for a last session.
The finca itself is charming and tastefully furnished. It is filled with interesting artwork. It also has a well-stocked library and plenty of good videos and DVDs. It has air-conditioning in all the rooms, two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, power showers, laundry, satellite T.V. for English channels, a spacious living-room leading to an open-plan kitchen/dining area. In the summer, one eats out on the terrace. It is ideal for one or two couples.Guests will arrive to a basically-stocked kitchen and will meet with someone to take them to the house and, if desired, inform them about the island. If required, regular maid-service as well as a home-delivery of freshly cooked Majorcan cuisine, can be arranged.
Set in an acre and a half of almond and olive groves it is the perfect peaceful spot yet near enough to the fantastic beaches and towns.
While C’an Buri does not have a pool yet, it is only five minutes drive from the town of Campanet, which sports a huge pool (free) & restaurant (cheap, good local cuisine). As no tourists are here, and as the local people never seem to visit pools, one has it virtually to oneself and is therefore great to visit if one is too lazy to make it to the beach!
