logoWelcome to Juseu, Spain.

Juseu is an authentic village (about 40 permanent residents) at the foot of the Pyrenees in the Ribagorza area of the province of Huesca in Aragon.

The village is situated on an elongated rock cliff with magnificent views in all directions.  Explore centuries-old paths that lead to other villages, Romanesque churches and abandoned monasteries.

The Mediterranean mountain landscape (dotted with almond and olive trees) is alternately rolling and then rocky steep.  You can swim in the mountain streams and at the lake of Joaquin Costa (15 minutes drive).

Climate

Throughout the year, the sun shines almost every day. In winter, it can easily be 20 degrees in the daytime.  The summers are warm (sometimes hot) and dry, but thanks to the height of 800 meters, there is almost always a fresh breeze. In summer you can sit outside almost every night and enjoy the breathtaking starry skies.

Retreat Homes

Our home for the retreat will be a collective of stylishly restored houses in the village.  They have plenty of space for you and your room mates to rest and find a little solitude.  All have beautiful views and private terraces.  Our hosts have a passion for aesthetics with a love for authenticity.  They have been designed for retreat, rest and recharge.

Each house has between 2 and 5 bedrooms, is typically set up for self catering, so there is a common kitchen and sitting areas, though we will be serving you meals at the School building. Bedrooms are double bed or two singles, showers & baths in the hallways are typically shared.

In addition to art and yoga your participation to Open Your Art will also provide you with an authentic Spanish experience. We lower the threshold for travel to Europe by providing an all in service, including pick-up and return to and from Barcelona Airport, should you wish.
Our kitchen is vegetarian in principle, while some local meat products will be provided on the side. We have embraced to a large extent the slow food philosophy. Host Nick & Chef Patrick aim to source and prepare good clean and fair food, and wine. We trust that you will feel looked after during this event.

Our homes in Juseu provide an ideal place to give yourself peace and tranquility. Time and again people are touched by the view of the endless spaces of this ancient landscape where the world has no control over yet.
