About the retreat venue Cortijo el Medico

Cortijo el Medico, which means the Doctor´s Farm, is a working vinyard, almond and fig farm, run by Norwegian/Swedish couple Tove Cecilie Fasting and Kristian Jansson.  We rent out the newly restored main villa, while living in another building at the farm ourselves, with our two dogs and cats.

Tove is a nutritionist and cookbook author, specializing in the Mediterranean diet. She has had cooking classes all over Norway, and been featured on national TV, in magazines and newspapers. Kristian is a winemaker and also teaches production of natural wine. We have regularly cooking classes and wine courses on the farm.

The villa is on two floors. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms. One with a double bed and a single bed, and one with two single beds. These two rooms share the ground floor bathroom. On the ground floor you also find the yoga studio/gym (with terrace doors facing the outdoors yoga terrace),  our tiny 7-11 (where we sell basic foods, wine and a few farm proucts). The roomy hallway doubles as a playroom.

Upstairs there is the open kitchen, dining and living area, with a fireplace. Here you have big doors opening up to the terrace with barbecue area and the pool. Here you also find two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one single bed, and one bedroom with two single beds. Here is also a powder room.

HERE you can see detailed description and photos of the bedrooms.

The farm is situated on 1050 meters above sea level, in the region of Alpujarra. Due to the rather secluded location, with few distractions, this is the perfect place for a small group where focus are on inner work. Find us HERE on google map.

We are off grid with no air condition, but have powerful fans in all rooms. The villa is well insulated with underfloor heating, making it suitable as a retreat venue even in the colder months. We especially recommend the almond tree flowering season, in February, which provides an exeptional scenery both at the farm and in all of Alpujarra.


To get here, we do recommend that you rent a car at Malaga airport, but we can also arrange pick up by minibus, which will cost approximately 200 euros (more or less, depending on how many you are), one way.
