What our customers say...

I have just come back from a week’s pilates retreat at Fawakay Villas and I want to recommend this to others. Dawn and Francis were amazing hosts and could not do enough for us.
Our apartment was beautifully furnished and was huge. The food was fantastic and freshly prepared by lovely staff and we loved their animals who were so laid back.
Roz the pilates teacher was amazing and was able to deal with all our various abilities as we were all the same as a true professional should do. We combined pilates with meditation and being the place we were was perfect. I cannot recommend this type of retreat enough so if you want to spend some of your time in a truly beautiful space relaxing and with an amazing pilates teacher please go to their next retreat

A heavenly villa, healthy and delicious food, meeting new people and so much fun. Rosalind showed me Pilates is for everyone, no matter your experience or ability. By the end of the week, I felt so revived and wished I could press rewind and have the whole holiday all over again. Thank you, Rosalind, Dawn, and Francis for such wonderful hospitality and for making the week so memorable. Five stars ⭐️ in every way.

Alice Peterson
When looking for a Pilates retreat it’s very important for me to know the teacher has robust training. I am also a Pilates teacher and can highly recommend Ros who trained with Body Balance and also is a mindfulness coach. The complex is luxurious and tranquil with ample opportunities to travel outside and visit the area. Dawn and Francis are amazing hosts and nothing is too much trouble, The food is outstanding, fresh, nutritious, and plentiful.  Combined with a few animals (we love donkeys!) this is an ideal retreat to escape and unwind or as we did, visit the local areas and immerse yourself in culture! I highly recommend this Pilates retreat and wouldn’t hesitate at returning. Many thanks.
