Activities at Finca Pereila
There are many activities around the area of the finca for you to try.
River Walks are very popular, we can advise you where to walk or even guide you in silent meditative river walks.
A walk to the Ermita is a must with its fabulous views and Western film set! The area behid the Ermita is a feria ground where once a year they have a big fiesta but for the rest of the time it looks like an abandoned film set from a western film.
There are many different walks in the area… tarmacced or trail with varying degrees of difficulty.
Bring your mountain bike or maybe rent one and try exploring the local countryside.
There are many attractions locally from Granada and the Alhambra Palace to the Breathtaking Caminito del Rey (Kings Walk) in the El Chorro Gorge.
Maybe followed by a day of watersports in the local reservoirs or a trip to see the waterfall at Barranco Blanco.
Malaga is a cultural hub for the area and is a must visit with many attractions.
And of course Marbella and its ‘Old Town’ area or the yaughts and jet set of Puerto Banus.

Yoga with David
Following a distinct change of life event i found myself in India studying Yoga in the traditional Hatha style.
After a month in an Ashram passing the 200Hr intensive course in Hatha Yoga i spent a further 2 months in Rishikesh studying at various ashrams learning different syles and families of yoga.
This gives me along with the fundamental Hatha style a greater understanding of the importance of correct alignment from Iyengar Yoga. The art of movement from Vinyasa and Ashtanga, leading to the realisation of the importance of stillness, breath and deeper meditation.
