Housed in a former olive oil press, Almàssera Vella is a centre for retreats and courses where you can indulge your creativity in the most spectacular of landscapes.


Situated in Relleu, Almàssera Vella is a country property that provides accommodation and courses in creative writing, art and photography. Swept up in the most beautiful scenery, this is a place where you can slow down, unwind and spend time connecting with yourself. 

The centre is housed in what was - for a hundred years - an olive oil press that used to supply the local area with staple part of the Mediterranean diet. The conversion was sensitive to the building’s original features and materials, creating a beautiful space for retreats and courses in practices like yoga, painting, mountain walking and more. 

Almàssera Vella offers ten guestrooms, a country kitchen, a 4,000 book library, snug, generous living spaces and much more. The style here is rustic, traditional and - as you might expect - Mediterranean. The perfect place for a retreat or a getaway with friends. 

The grounds are defined by fragrant citrus trees and palms that gently sway in the breeze. There is a pool that you won’t be able to help yourself from diving into in the summer and a Moorish farmhouse just a stone’s throw away. But arguably the greatest attraction of this country property in Relleu is the olive grove - whose fruits are still used to produce oil - and where you can take gentle strolls, breathing in the beauty of mother nature. 

Retreats offer full access to the property, grounds and services including wifi, television and printing. To wind down before bed, you could take a gentle stroll along Camino del Calvario, ending up at a pretty chapel. Almàssera Vella is a rustic centre that breathes the history of the olive oil press.
