Can Mas Rural – Eco Juice Detox in Tordera, close to Barcelona

Welcome to Eco Detox’s Eight-Day Detox Retreat in Barcelona, Spain. This bilingual (Spanish/English) retreat has been designed by the professionals at Eco Detox to provide you with a transformative experience that goes beyond the typical seven-day cycle.

Located in Can Mas, a rural house in the beautiful Costa Brava National Park, just north of Pineda de Mar, this retreat offers breathtaking views from every angle of the house. Surrounded by lush forests, daily walks will take you to explore caves and waterfalls, while allowing you to appreciate an abundance of flora and fauna. The weather here is usually warm and sunny, so even in the winter months there are plenty of opportunities to bask in the sun and listen to the birdsong.

This family-owned and -operated lodge pays meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that your rooms are both comfortable and stylish.

Can Mas is a 17th century farmhouse. It is made up of different buildings, such as the manor house, the lord’s house, the barn, the stables, the drying room, the cellar and the threshing floor. Although these structures are not connected internally, they form a unified and spacious home. Several extensions and constructions were added over time, including terraces, a café and a bar area.

Each room has mosquito netting on the windows for a peaceful night’s sleep. Accommodation options range from dorm beds to more private rooms with shared or en-suite bathrooms. The yoga shala is another highlight – during winter classes, a log fire will keep you toasty.

Throughout the retreat, you will enjoy invigorating hikes through picturesque countryside, leading you to enchanting waterfalls and serene forests.

As your fast progresses over these eight days, expect profound detoxification effects on the physical, emotional, and mental levels. Our bodies naturally function on one-week cycles; therefore, fasting for a longer period of time allows us to gain greater clarity about how we nourish ourselves both physically and emotionally. In addition, passing the seven-day mark ensures cellular renewal in various bodily processes – eliminating harmful toxins while replacing potentially diseased cells within us. With our unique eight-day program designed specifically for deeper detoxification experiences, you can look forward to each day bringing you closer to greater clarity, increased energy levels, inner peace, and overall well-being.

Combined with the preceding week of preparation, this retreat provides valuable insight into behavioral patterns related to food, allowing you to identify attachments to certain foods and eating habits. The process of liquid fasting can be transformative, and Eco Detox is committed to supporting you during and after the retreat to foster a healthier relationship with yourself and food.

Connecting with nature, breathing techniques, yoga, exercise and meditation all help to create a peaceful environment that allows for deep introspection and rest away from our typically hectic lives. While weight loss may naturally occur as part of this journey, it is not our primary focus.

While fasting, we highly recommend participating in yoga, movement, and breathing classes; although optional, they gently activate cleansing processes in the body while facilitating emotional release, reconnecting with one’s essence, and forging unique bonds within the group.We encourage avoiding excessive hours of lying down to prevent fatigue.Being attuned to your body’s needs and making time for silence and stillness is crucial throughout this experience.

This retreat also provides an opportunity for physical rest and disconnection from the stresses of daily life. Smoking is antithetical to the detoxification process, so we recommend that you reduce or stop smoking during your stay. If necessary, you may smoke outside the house grounds. Cell phone use should be limited during the retreat. A digital detox is encouraged to accompany your overall cleansing process.
