So when we decided to set up the latest New You Boot Camp, why did we decide to hold it in Spain, and why Cadiz?
The answer is pretty simple. We’ve traditionally moved our overseas camps from country to country, and Spain has long been on our list. In Cadiz, we found a site that exceeded our pretty demanding, I’ll admit ‘list of requirements. First of all, it’s surrounded by the magnificent Andalucian countryside. This is where we like to take our visitors on stunning hikes that will help exercise your body while de-stressing your mind.
Also, the grounds and garden (complete with swimming pool!) are simply stunning. This is what sealed the deal for us, especially as we knew there was plenty of room and the perfect climate to grow a range of organic fruit and vegetables.
This brings us on to our next reason. The Mediterranean diet is famous for being healthy and tasty, with a unique combination of aromas and flavours and proven benefits for your health. A mixture of fruit, vegetables, nuts and pulses filled to the brim with vitamins and fibre is the staple of the regions cuisine.
When setting up the Boot Camp we were truly inspired by local recipes and our chefs keep coming back to Mediterranean meals such as our frittatas, our vegetable mousakka and Mediterranean chicken with quinoa.
As great as exploring Cadiz is, its also a perfect jumping off point for exploring the rest of Andalucia. There’s a great train service just up the coast to Malaga, a city whose roots go back even further than Cadiz’s to the Phoenicians 2,800 years ago! If you are arriving from elsewhere in Spain, it’s easy to jump on a ferry too.
All in all, we think of Cadiz as our home, and we’re sure that before long you’ll feel at home here as well.
