For many people, their holiday is the biggest purchase they’ll make all year. We want you to be fully informed, so here is a comprehensive list of the most frequently asked questions we get.
If we’ve missed anything out or you still have questions, just get in touch and we’ll answer your query quickly!
We understand a holiday is a big purchase and you want to know you’re making an informed decision. With that in mind, here’s a few pointers on the logistics…
Where is the Active Retreat?
We’re situated in the surf village of Lajares at the northern end of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. It’s a quiet village, but it has a few cool bars, tapas restaurants, a few shops and is easy to get to. It’s a great location for us because it’s close to the gym and yoga studio and is still quiet, despite the bars.
Where do I fly to?
You fly to Fuerteventura airport. There is only one on the island, so it’s an easy destination when it comes to flight bookings! From the UK, flights usually cost around £70-100 return. Direct flights are available from all the major UK airports and take 4 hours.
How do I arrange an airport transfer?
You don’t! At the Active Retreat we transfer you ourselves as part of the cost! We pick you up from the airport and take you back. All we need is your flight details and we take care of the rest.
I’m travelling alone - is that OK?
Do I need to hire a car?
No, you don’t need to, but if you’d like to have your own transport, feel free. You’ll have space to park the car at the villa so it’ll be safe. If you do hire a car and feel comfortable transporting yourself from the airport to the retreat, just let us know beforehand so we don’t send anyone to the airport to collect you!
What is the weather like in Fuerteventura?
Accommodation is key – you can see the pictures, but if you’d like more info, take a look here…
Who will I share a room with?
How does the bathroom sharing work?
Our budget rooms share bathrooms, but we find guests very quickly fall into an easy routine with shower sharing! Some people shower at different times of the day, so we haven’t come across a problem yet! If you’d prefer a private bathroom, you can book one of our more luxury rooms.
