Set in a magical country estate outside San Rafael, Can Alamar is a stunning property of understated elegance and laid-back luxury, available for summer rentals and as a retreat venue throughout the year. Over the last few years, this beautiful villa has become the venue of choice for a number of leading retreat companies, including Internationally renowned wellbeing stars. Erin Knowles of My Island Retreats has run multiple retreats at Can Alamar and works closely with its owners as an ambassador within the wellbeing community. Erin elaborated on what makes the property so special.
“For me, like most people working in the wellbeing space, the energy of a venue is as important as the facilities it offers. I know immediately if its right – and if it’s not. Can Alamar has been owned by the same family for 50 years and you can really feel how lovingly nurtured the house and grounds are. It feels like a home that has come to life organically, with all the sweet touches you want and nothing too perfect or over manicured. Set across 12 acres, the grounds are lush and expansive but also have a real secret garden feel, perfect for taking some personal time among the citrus groves and terraces. The house feels light and airy with beautifully presented bedrooms and communal spaces and just the right size for cosying up in front of the fire on cooler evenings”.
Each pocket of space within Can Alamar has been perfectly created for relaxation and a feeling of wellbeing. From the vast yoga deck set in the forest to the traditional Mongolian yurt and little hidden areas for meditation or just a little quiet contemplation, it is a great choice for spiritual and healing retreats. In addition, the house has two swimming pools, a flood-lit tennis court and numerous courtyard and chill-out areas. Having seen many stunning houses on the island Can Alamar is the one that holds a special place in my heart and I really believe offers a perfect environment for anyone to decompress and reset in.
