Bed and Breakfast Valencia Mindfulness Retreat is conveniently situated in the heart of the Valencia old town / historical center district: ´Ciudad Vella´. You will find your Valencia B&B in the best and most central area to stay in Valencia, just around the corner from the famous cathedral on Plaza de la Virgen / Barrio del Carmen, in the middle of the historical center of Valencia. Voted ´best area to stay in Valencia´, the convenient and central location of your authentic Bed and Breakfast is only five to ten minutes walking to anything you would like to see or do in Valencia.
It is all about you! Your authentic Bed and Breakfast in Valencia takes pride in offering ´service with a smile´ to you as our guest. We get to know our guests by name, and make you feel welcome and at home during the city introduction upon arrival. With a glass of Cava bubbles or another refreshments, we show you Valencia´s famous sights as well as our own secret tips, on the map.
Where and when to have the best paella? What is the latest trendy tapas bar or coolest hangout at the beach? Where to shop and where not to go? From classical art to street art routes and galleries, you will be in the know of where to go and what to do during your Valencia city trip, based on your personal preferences and our local insider ´hidden gem´– tips off the beaten track.
A citytrip or holiday is not only about seeing new things and exploring a different experience in historic buildings, sights and local cuisine. We believe any trip should not only be stimulating to the senses, it is also important to relax, feel at home after a busy day and treat yourself with some pampering. At your home away from home in Valencia, it is possible to choose from a wide range of massages from expert and certified English speaking therapists, in the sunny in house massage room. Indulge with a strong deep tissue massage after a day about town, or choose for a relaxing aromatic oil massage before turning in.
Shift to serenity
Apart from the feelgood massages, the team of certified and highly experienced English speaking yoga- and pilates instructors are daily available for private- or group classes at all levels. The yoga classes range from gentle hatha yoga, to more advanced ashtanga yoga. The two Valencia Bikram hot yoga studios with special ten day visitors offers, are found at a fifteen minutes walk from your Bed and Breakfast.
Stretch, breathe, balance
Private yoga- and pilates classes can be tailored to your specific wishes and experience. Yoga and Pilates classes are given at the B&B location, in the Turia park at the end of the street, or at a school close by depending on demand and availability. Would you be interested in a morning meditation session, or a practical ´mindful living´ workshop? Than do join us complimentary at the ´eight to nine´ early bird meditation room´ for a peaceful and tranquil start of the day.
Please note it is not possible to make a direct reservation and just book a room on-line at Bed and Breakfast Valencia Mindfulness Retreat. Nor will you find this ´secret B&B´ on reservation-sites like booking-dotcom. This can be a bit inconvenient when planning your trip to Valencia, yet it has a good reason. We strongly believe in our ´catch your breath and relax´-concept, and therefore personally read – and reply to – all requests for a stay.
As our communal breakfast for some is the very best start of the day, we like to keep the company diverse, interesting and open-minded. This is why we are also not able to accommodate ´walk-ins´ and ´same day arrival´-requests. To check if your dates of travel are still available, please find our contact-form and Email address at the contact page.
ENJOY A PERSONAL
IN VALENCIA HISTORICAL CENTER
BED AND BREAKFAST VALENCIA MINDFULNESS RETREAT
We strongly believe that all capacity for satisfaction depends first and foremost on emotional wellbeing. You could book a table in a Michelin restaurant and stay in a five star hotel, yet if you feel stressed or worried over something, it is almost impossible to enjoy these often well deserved luxuries. For this reason we have created a peaceful and quiet home, where you can feel calm, safe, and looked after.
For those in the mood there is the early bird meditation room for a quiet moment of contemplation before exploring Valencia on foot or by bike. Our team of highly qualified and experienced English speaking ´calm and fit-experts´ are here to make you feel good in your body, while getting you out of your head.
Take a gentle yoga class, work on your core with pilates, or treat yourself to a relaxing all body holistic massage by one of our expert therapists. Or: just curl up on the lounge couch with a cup of tea one of the 5000 books from the diverse library.
To be kind is to be friendly, generous and considerate. We offer you kindness, yet also expect kindness of our guests. Show your good will, and you will receive courteous and considerate hospitality in return. To realize a more authentic and meaningful experience during your Valencia city break, it is indeed a good start to stay in a home of Valencia locals, opposed to a busy large commercial hotel.
With our inside knowledge of Valencia´s hidden gems in the city, you might explore experiences that are off- the-beaten-path, focusing on the discovery of the local area as well as the self-discovery of your own inner world. At our independent and homy location you will meet other international guests who have also chosen for this small scale local and charming experience.
The authentic interaction with other guests during breakfast can be a culturally immersive experience if you are open and willing to give as well as receive kindness. Breathe in deep, and relax.
Honesty is all about trust, and this is what we offer and ask for. All lounge areas at our B&B are communal, we offer a large donation based honesty bar, and the individual bedrooms do not have a lock on the door. Of course we do have a safe for if there is something you´d like us to keep locked away, yet we believe our location is one of these places with trust.
We strongly believe in our concept, yet of course understand the possibility of guests having different expectations after joining our tribe for a day. This is always possible, and therefore we offer a hundred percent free stay if after one night and one breakfast at our location you find it´s just not for you.
This means that if for any reason you are not happy – and just tell us after your first breakfast – we will tear up your bill, and help you find a more suitable accommodation in the city with a smile. And that´s a firm promise!
Trying to be good in the way we live and run our Bed and Breakfast means it is our interest to take care of your well being with attention for your personality and interests. To travel to a new place is not only about seeing things you have not seen before, if you are receptive it is likely to even wonder more freely through the regions of your inner landscape.
The high standards of good quality bedding, unusual art and a quirky unique B&B-interior are not so much luxurious as rather aesthetically pleasing and real.
As one guest wrote on Trip Advisor: ´Luxury at this B&B has nothing to do with golden taps nor designer soaps in the bathrooms. This luxury is maybe even more valuable and made out of time, attention and kindness.´
