About us

We are an Art, Travel and Wellness collective that organizes retreat-shaped artistic residencies.


Together we have designed a programme based on the following principles:


We believe in what is built from shared different backgrounds, perspectives, skills and experiences.


Our programme is inspired by the local landscape and resources, environmental awareness and sustainability.


We favour experimentation as a tool to access and navigate untapped potential.


We include and showcase local traditional craftsmanship and ancestral knowledge in our programme.


The energy that brings us together - explore, grow and develop this force with RETIRO.
