My wife and I did a 5 day Tai Chi retreat and it was one of the best experiences in our life. Paco is an excellent instructor who helped us learn the basic Tai Chi moves. Under his supervision we managed to fully stretch our body and get rid of some chronic pain. It is incredible how much we managed to accomplish in just a few days. We will definitely continue practising what Paco taught us and eventually come back for another retreat. Very highly recommended!
I stayed at Villa Azul for one week in February 2020. Its a very pretty and clean house with a peaceful green oasis garden. During my tai chi retreat I was served the best vegan food from a charming cook and Paco's tai chi training sessions were always full of passion, laughter but also powerful focus. Both place and people supported my healing process very much. Theres a bus stop nearby, with buses going in both directions to the nearby towns, departing every hour.
Paco is a kind and really good tai chi teacher. The Villa is lovely, and I quickly made friends with the other participants. Doing tai chi outside on a volcano slope was one of the most magical experiences of my life!
This was my first solo trip and I cannot recommend it enough. The location is beautiful, with the locals being incredibly friendly - I even befriended the dogs next door! The villa is a beautiful and tranquil space, where I spent many afternoons of my free time in the garden - oh how I miss it! Paco is a very kind soul, making me feel comfortable and supported throughout my training with him. I cannot thank him enough for making me feel so safe and at home during my first time travelling alone. I will forever hold Villa Azul fondly in my heart! I have come away feeling empowered, enriched, and very grateful for the energy and blessings shared during my week here. I cannot recommend coming here enough - it truly is something very special that everyone should experience.
A friend heard of Paco's Tai Chi & Yoga sessions and sent me a link to Paco's website as I wanted to practice my QiGong (early starter) and to find time to meditate. So I gave it a try: polite, brief and uncomplicated conversation with Paco via eMail. Booked my fligth and off I went. I can not add more as all my prescribers wrote but it all my expectations were met. A wonderful and peaceful oasis in the small town of Villaverde. A wonderful garden that invites you to linger in small niches of bushes, trees or palm trees. Everything is at its place and you can do your excersie outside in the Garden and enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air. Paco is a great teacher and coach and in my week with him a learned a lot about the techniques, moves and the philosophy behind Thai Chi and Yoga. It was lots of fun, a great time of recreation and opened new perspectives for me in my hobby. I should not forget the great vegan food! It was as well for my very first time an encounter with vegan food and I enjoyed it very much…
