Centro Santillan Yoga and Wellness Centre is an authentic Andalusian farmhouse with gardens overlooking the sea. Set in a secluded location, Santillan is an Andalusian paradise. A farm of 50,000 sq, metres, it is located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, and yet is conveniently only 30 minutes from Malaga airport. With beautiful, lush gardens and a salt-water swimming pool, you can immerse yourself in the silence of nature in its lovely gardens and surrounding hills.
With a newly built, beautiful state of the art and fully equipped yoga studio, complete with The Great Yoga Wall, Santillan is the perfect setting for our yoga retreat. I have been using the wall-rope system in my teaching for over 10 years and I am excited to make everyone who attends the retreat experience this fantastic yoga tool to its fullest benefit. Centro Santillan was mentioned in The Times as one of Europe’s best yoga and wellness centres.

Santillan also has a paddle court. Adapted from tennis, the court is smaller, there are no double lines, and the net is lower. The game is played with a solid paddle rather than a strung racket, and a depressurised ball is used with an underarm serve.

Driving from the airport
The drive from Malaga airport is straightforward.
- Leave the airport in the direction of Malaga.
- Follow signs that say ‘Almeria’ and ‘Motril’ on what will become the A7 motorway heading east toward Almeria and Motril.
- Do NOT go towards Granada, Cadiz, and Seville.
- Stay on A7 11 and after about 20 minutes take EXIT 258 off the motorway, which comes directly after EXIT 256, in the direction of Marcharaviaya, (Torre de Benalgabon).
- Please note that the motorway exit signs are not in strict numerical order!
- Then turn left and follow the road underneath the motorway and up the hill towards Macharaviaya following the signs painted on the rock, as explained above.
If you will be making your own way by car, you will see Santillan’s latitude and longitude details for satnav devices below.
- You need to get off the motorway at EXIT 258 in the direction of Macharaviaya and then follow the road up the hill towards Macharaviaya.
- Here you will start to see Santillan’s signs ‘MOLINO DE SANTILLAN’ painted on the rock in green and red letters against a white background and green frame.
- Be sure to take the right fork next to the school at the beginning of the mountain road, as signposted.
- The painted signs on the rock will guide you along a serpentine road up the hill for 3 kilometers, with quite spectacular views north over the mountains and nearby white mountain villages and southward to the Mediterranean Sea.
- Just after 3 km on this mountain road, you will see a big black-and-white sign with red letters at a sharp right-hand turn. Take this turn to the right and follow this second, more narrow mountain road for about 1.2 km, and Molino de Santillan is at the end of a right-hand turn off this mountain road.
