 So often at Shine, we hear you say that you'd love to be able to drift off to sleep after a tranquil treatment. Well now you can. Imagine being able to fulfil that wish at our countryside estate, with ample places to relax, sleep and even swim!

We create tailor made retreats, from complete relaxation, to creative writing, to culinary and nutrition based regenerating retreats. We also have exciting new collaborations with Massoga for 2024. We also have the opportunity to create time that focuses on helping you through specific health conditions, with experts on hand to give you numerous treatments and taking the best care of you.

A few miles from our hilltop home, we have what the locals call “The Millennials” Olive trees dating back 2000 years.

We often take a wee detour on our way out to our morning coffee and enjoy a walk among these 4 majestic trees.

It’s impossible not to take a moment and wonder about the history these trees have been witness to.
