I am from Spain, an holistic therapist interested in art and dance.
I am 54 yo.
We had a wonderful time staying at Yair's and Ziza's place!
The Yurt is great, lovely. Yair and his wife Ziza are very nice persons, very helpful and caring. The Yurt was very clean, cosy, fully equiped. The location is perfekt for relaxing, with great views. There's a pool and wonderful hammocks and also lots of fruits from the garden (thanks!) Lanjaron is only 5 minutes away, there you find the nearest supermarket.
We preferred to stay in Yair's and Ziza's little paradise...
You can do a lot of hiking in this area or just hand around - absolutely great!
We enjoyed our time there very much and would love to come back any time! Thanks a lot.
Response from Yair:
Dear Laura, Many thanks for your evaluation. Hope all is well and we looking forward to see you again. Love, Yair and Ziza
Yair's house is hidden in an olive grove on the outskirts of Lanjaron and is a very relaxing location. The house is equipped with everything one needs. It is off the grid and it was our first time in a fully solar powered house. All went well and we really enjoyed our stay. Yair is a great host and supplied us food for breakfast which was really nice. We would recommend a stay at Casa Iris and a visit to the Bodega Gonzales in Lanjaron to sample some good Spanish food and wine.
Andalucian winter nights can reach sub-zero temperatures. Before booking, we were assured that a heater would be provided to keep the yurt toasty at night. When we arrived, we found that it was a gas heater, and we were instructed not to use it overnight for safety reasons. I'm sure this place would be lovely in the summer. However I would not recommend it for a winter stay unless you like sleeping in the cold.
If you are looking for peace, reconnecting with nature and yourself, if you are looking for healing or hiking, if you are looking for inspiration and imagination, if you are looking for pure love, you MUST come here!!! In only 4 days it changed my life. Ziza and Yair were more than hospitable, they embraced me like family. I felt nurtured and taken care of. If available I recommend you include meals to your pack as Ziza´s food is out of this world! I also recommend you do a few treatments and they can change your life...seriously! Come for the food, yoga, Qi Gong and peace and leave transformed. I cannot recommend this place or them any higher. Don´t forget to bring a little extra to take back some of their own olive oil they produce!
Response from Yair:
Dear Janine, so many thanks for this beautiful testimonial. We send you and your lovely plants much blessings.
Love, Yair and Ziza
Sin duda un lugar y unos anfitriones hermosos. Es el rincón perfecto para reconectarte contigo mismo y con la naturaleza. Además dormir en una yurta es una experiencia auténtica. Tuve la suerte de poder disfrutar de una reflexología con Ziza que me hizo flotar!!
Response from Yair:
Muchas gracias Lurdes.
Besos, Ziza y Yair
I have known Yair for three years..I first met him and his wonderful wife, Ziza, when i went to stay with them in their yurt in February, 2009.They have an incredibly peaceful and gentle environment which they share with anyone that crosses their paths.
I initially wanted to have as much alone time and reflection time and SLEEP as possible.I ended up having some amazing treatments from the two of them and felt totally rejuvenated, revived and (website hidden) was a life changing experience.!Even though i stayed during a winter week, I was super comfortable.I had everything i needed:Books,peace, quiet, gas and a woodburning stove!And a fantastic outdoor shower.The sauna was a bonus!Ziza even gave me some drawing materials..
Ziza and Yair are extremely accommodating and work with your needs .Whatever they may be.They offered me food in the yurt or were open for me to have my meals with them in their lovely home..If you chose not have treatments this is still a fantastic alternative to modern day hotels/hostels/b and b's.There are lovely walks close by to some expansive views .If i lived closer myself and my toddler would be staying there at lot more often!
THIS IS A FANTASTIC LOCATION AND EXTREMELY COZY AND COMFORTABLE WITH INCREDIBLE ONE OF A KIND HOSTS.STAY HERE!
