Solo Travel Fitness Holiday Europe

If you’re after a solo travel fitness holiday, look no further – the Active Retreat is PERFECT for you!

Our fitness holiday is really popular with solo travellers – since we started offering fitness holidays in Europe, around 80% of our retreat guest have visited us as solo travellers. We didn’t expect that figure but it makes complete sense! When you come on a fitness holiday as a solo traveller you’re certainly going to be mixing with like-minded people, so it’s an easy way to make friends even if you don’t know anyone when you arrive.

There’s a shared experience on the Active Retreat – you’re doing the same workouts, eating the same food and enjoying the same activities. These factors all contribute to our guests becoming friends throughout their stay and even arranging to visit us again!

What Makes the Active Retreat Perfect for Solo Travellers?

On the Active Retreat the very nature of the holiday is sociable – group exercise, collective trips out, communal meals and nights out means that there’s plenty of time to get to know each other well. You’re under no pressure to do everything together but the way, but of course if you do join in you’ll get much more out of the Active Retreat week.

Our activities are all set up for individuals, so you don’t need to come as a pair. Surfing, cycling, yoga, circuit training etc aren’t team sports, so you’re not at a disadvantage if you’re on your own! Coming along on the retreat with the expectation you’ll make new friends is a fair assumption.

When you come to the Active Retreat as a solo traveller, you’re bound to meet new, like-minded friends. As a holiday, the Active Retreat is quite niche and as a result, attracts a certain type of person. If you’re interested in fitness, you won’t be on your own. Our typical guest is a professional, 25-45, often single, often without kids and certainly interested in health without being ‘super’ fit. Basically, the kind of person you’d describe as ‘normal’!

The Active Retreat Villa – Solo Traveller Friendly!

Where we host the Active Retreat is perfectly set up for the solo traveller. We can offer a shared room or a solo room for you depending on budget, but even if you opt for a solo room yet still like to mix with other guests, you can do so easily – we have a large communal space in the living room. Some guests will just gather for a chat, others will prefer to read in a hammock or on a sun bed in the garden.

The garden is great for hangout out together – there is a mixture of sun loungers, hammocks, decking space and a pool. You can relax and chill out as much as you’d like to. It’s a place where you can completely forget about the world. You can get yourself completely lost in a book, have a nap, a drink or a natter – do what you like!

Take a look at the images of the villa gardens below – I think you’ll understand what I mean when I say it’s perfect for solo travellers! You don’t need to have company in order to chill out here…
