It’s a retreat… but not as you know it

These days people seem to go on retreats as frequently as they grab a coffee. There are all sorts of things on offer from the zany to the spiritual to the hardcore boot camps. But what if you just want some time out? A little relaxation coupled with some healthy self-care under the guidance of a professional? A place where you get to choose the pace, the activities and the content without having to relinquish your autonomy to the various needs and moods of a group? After all, as Pablo Picasso said: “Without great solitude no serious work can be done.”

Serious work? Well, if that’s what you’re after, that’s what you’ll get when you partake in a bespoke Cas Gasi retreat – designed just for you in mind. Thankfully, it’s not all about serious work though and that’s the whole point. You can choose exactly what you need, when you need it. The Cas Gasi team is there to provide. You can go as in depth with the in-house nutritionist as you require. The Cas Gasi massage therapist is there to gently coax your body into a deep sense of wellness and the hotel’s private yoga teacher is on hand to bend and stretch to your heart chakra’s content. No matter how deep you take it, this is serious Me Time.

Good food is the cornerstone of any journey towards wellbeing and the Cas Gasi chef and nutritionist are on hand to deliver all the support required. Freshly pressed juices, healthy vegan meals – with much of the produce taken from the onsite organic veggie garden – or even a big plate of comfort food is always an option. Simply discuss your dietary requirements on arrival and let them take care of the rest.

One of the best cures for an over-active body, mind and soul is the natural world. The grounds and gardens of Cas Gasi are the perfect invitation for contemplation and stillness, while the various country walks or bike rides breathe fresh life into tired bones and bring vigour to the soul. Recharge and get closer to your authentic self at Cas Gasi – purely on your terms and no one else’s.
