Self-love Retreats in unspoiled Andalusia

Enjoy a deeply healing experience in a part of Spain that reflects the beauty of your soul

Gorgeous Hearts presents Self-love Retreats in Aracena, Spain. We invite you to step away from the doing, the drive and the stresses of life and to reconnect to the stillness within you. Creating space to explore the depths of your inner world, supported by the beautiful surroundings, the peace and tranquility and the support of a deeply nurturing retreat program, will be the foundation of this nurturing and healing retreat. 

Self-love Retreats - Life coaching Hikes in the beautiful mountains of Huelva, Spain 

Whether you are a serious hiking pro or you just like a short jaunt, there are routes for you and beautiful places to discover during your stay.

Life coaching can be offered from 90 minutes to three hour sessions and take you on a deep dive into what is holding you back in life whilst enabling you to identify the actions to take in order to successfully achieve your dreams and goals. Life coaching whilst hiking reflects the journey, the highs and lows and the depth of space that unfolds from one place to another. 

The walking takes you along mule tracks from one picturesque mountain village to another. There is plenty of opportunity to rest and take in the stunning scenery as well as what unfolds within you. Coaching gently encourages you to explore, open up the confines of your limiting beliefs, question the perceptions and reconnect to a deeper space within you that knows the answers that you need. It's my job to facilitate this and to support you to take action on the choices that expand your universe whilst ditching those that contract you. It can be challenging, exciting and purposeful but hopefully not comfortable, as that is not what coaching, or hiking is about.

Autumn and Spring are the best seasons to book, however, if you enjoy the sun, summer offers the added bonus of swimming pools and trips to the beach. Seville is just over an hour away and so is the beautiful Costa de la Luz to enjoy the beautiful golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

Self-love Retreats - Connect & Express  

Connect & Express combines holistic wellness coaching with vocal embodiment, connective rhythms and creative song writing therapy.  It aims to reconnect you to the flow of the abundance of love that is within you, to your innate creativity and to the intuitive intelligence of your body, mind and soul. It is a holistic way of healing that knows energy to be the root cause of issues and ills. Here is a break-down of Connect & Express:


  • Holistic Wellness Coaching explores the causes, challenges the perceptions and defines the actions to take in order to build a respectful and self-loving relationship with your whole body, mind and soul.
  • Vocal Embodiment increases self-awareness and conscious presence through specific gentle vocal exercises which raise the vibrations of your body to embody the love that you are.
  • Connective Rhythms quietens the mind, increases presence and body connection whilst improving focus and memory.
  • Creative Song Writing Therapy discovers the words that your soul needs you to hear each day.  It opens the door to your innate creativity and intuition and reinforces your commitment to your self-love
Connective rhythm workshops - Gorgeous Hearts

Connect & Express is suitable for all ages. No musical or singing ability is required.  It's effective for any person who struggles with their expression, self-confidence or self-esteem, for couples or families who wish to communicate more effectively,  or singers/performers who struggle with performance anxiety.

"If you're looking for Bob n Brenda's Chippie or British Breakfast and curry on the coast go take a hike!! 🤣🤣this really isn't the place for you!"

Gorgeous Heart's self-loving retreats are held In a village of around 350 inhabitants called Los Marines, very close to Aracena in the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, Huelva, South Western Spain.  Aracena is the main town of this region and is about a 5 minute drive from Los Marines.  There is a theatre, a castle and caves to visit, and if you are visiting in the summer months, a wonderful outdoor pool that you can enjoy for only 1.50 euros per day.  We are a little over an hours drive to the beautiful city of Seville, about the same from the Costa de la Luz. The border of Portugal is also about an hour away.  


La Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche is famous for its black footed pigs that roam the fields eating acorns among elms, cork oaks and sweet smelling fig trees.  If you love nature, clean air, beautiful scenery, serenity and Spanish culture, you will love this fairly unknown jewel of Andalusía.
