Wildfitness, experts in running transformational wellbeing breaks, has announced its new ‘home’ in Menorca, with retreats starting from next spring. Read what our tester thought in our wellness break review

The new location is Binigaus Nou, a private estate on the south of the island, surrounded by 300 acres of fields and forests. Featuring a range of shared and private rooms and suites, the 18th century restored villa features its own pool and is a 15 minute walk from white sandy beaches. Move and breathe amongst the wild orchids, fig and citrus trees, and immerse yourself in the rich, health-boosting, eco-system of Menorca.

‘We’re really excited to present Binigaus Nou as the new home for Wildfitness,’ says Director of Wildfitness Eric Walters. ‘The first week-long Menorca retreat was in April, followed by three further consecutive weeks – and there are more planned for September and October.’ (see below for details.

With a philosophy rooted in evolutionary science and research that is backed by doctors and university lecturers, Wildfitness focuses on three elements: wild moving, wild eating and wild living.

Their retreats are designed to educate and inspire a more mindful and integrative approach towards sustainable healthy living.

‘Exercising in nature has plenty of benefits for both body and mind,’ says Eric. ‘Our busy, urban lives have created environments which are unrecognisable to the human body, and so we see plenty of mismatches in how we move, eat and rest. At Wildfitness, we aim to reprogramme unhealthy habits and postures and undo the damage caused by sedentary living, and Menorca provides the perfect natural environment to do so.

‘Try it once. You won’t look back. This is definitely a thinking person’s fitness retreat but there will unquestionably be sweat, blood if you really want it, and tears when you know it’s time to go home.’ Rocco.

‘A treat of a week – relaxing, playful, challenging, educational, good food and good company.’ Ann
