CC Consalvo & roe mattar

When we place priorities on eating more intuitively and trusting our most basic need which is hunger, it allows us to direct our energy toward what’s most important rather than becoming distracted or over informed. Once we set an intention we find ourselves becoming more relaxed and peaceful eaters. Food is pleasure and In order to experience pleasure we must first become relaxed. Now is the time to focus on how we feel, look and perform and great health begins in the kitchen. 

Join us on a truly magical island in the Mediterranean. You will be be cared for during your stay and enjoy local, organic food prepared with love and respect.  We’ll slow down, cook together, walk in nature and reconnect with likeminded individuals in a place that even the best camera cannot capture. 

Formentera’s beaches are rated some of the worlds most beautiful. This is our Formentera and we want to share it with you. 

Whether you walk, swim or just cocoon, your stay will be most memorable and you’ll return home inspired, with a new sense of food as self care which is the most powerful gift you can give yourself.
