A cool, canopied oasis, surrounded by lush rainforest, the river area is a true escape from the rest of the world. Absorb the sound of the water trickling over the smooth, cool rocks and feel your worries floating away with it.

As nature performs her gentle extraction of stress, replacing it with natural calm and well-being, you will absorb the peace and balance of the area. We must never separate ourselves completely from nature.

Savor the welcoming, peaceful energy. With endless little places to discover around the property, you’ll find your time here engaging and delightful.

There is a pathway through the rainforest, an outdoor spa by the pond, a fairy-lit gazebo, and a lovely staircase through the olive grove.

Read a book in the cool rock garden grotto, or wander by the peaceful, mossy freshwater river, looking up at trees that are hundreds of years old.

Meander through the secret garden, or simply sit by the river and absorb peace. The Estate has so many secret spots to enjoy.
