Reconnect to your essence through nature

You may be looking for a break from the daily routine, are facing important decisions or are seeking a deeper meditative experience. Under kind guidance, Yanua is a gateway to pause and ground yourself in nature, to allow Her to help you reconnect to your authentic self.


We offer stays in one of several modern Tiny Houses, a luxury wood cabin or in the modern main building with private or shared spaces. Yanua is wheelchair accessible, including a 75 m2 meeting hall and other rooms, dining room and common kitchen. We also have a library, two pianos and other instruments. We offer you a large and diverse natural space with inspiring scenery, lovingly tended gardens and an orchard surrounded by lush Atlantic forest.

Workshops and Retreats

We specialize in purpose quest retreats, and host individual, group or post-Camino retreats and workshops throughout the year. In addition to its varied indoor spaces, Yanua provides diverse outdoor areas within 20 hectares of fields, medicinal herb and vegetable gardens, orchards, and lush forests with streams. There are several trails leading in and out of the property, together providing many options to find quiet spaces and immersion in nature.

Events & Activities

In summer we offer U-pick for the public to come enjoy the immersive experience of harvesting your own food. Come pick your own blueberries from June to August. We occasionally host community fairs open to the public where artisans, producers, and artists meet, share and celebrate, or simply create! I

Ongoing Projects

We are engaged in soil and land regeneration, crop studies, reforesting and local community events. Montessori’s Adolescent Program (Montessori Compostela international school) is an integral part of our community.

A unique natural space with accommodation and activities designed to reconnect with your inner essence

Yanua is an invitation to begin an inner journey where you will be immersed in the natural environment and take time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We specialise in the purpose quest, in gently guiding individuals to carry out this personal inner work in a safe environment. 

Our unique welcome, the wild landscape, the myriad of gardens and the forest will naturally invite you to re-root yourself, re-awaken your senses, remember and harness the power of introspection.
