Aurigin Villalonga is our first center in development located 20 km from the sea in the mountains by the river Serpis. Villalonga is our proof of concept site and the birthplace of Aurigin.
The warm and sunny climate, the ease of mobility from the airport, the majestic nature of La Safor, proximity to the beach and direct access to the river and springs makes Villalonga the perfect location for creative retreats.
The center is presently spread
over 4 properties.
The main residency building, Villa Josefà, is remotely located by the river in the heart of the mountains. It contains 8 private bedrooms over two separate apartments, 4 private offices and one large community room. The 3 acres of land are being turned into a permaculture land art forest garden.
Two more housing locations between the village and Villa Josefà provide extra rooms in co-living situations with our hosts.
The main art studio, Estudio de Palma, is located in Palma de Gandia 25 minutes bicycle ride from Villalonga through the orange groves.
*Further locations are presently being inquired

workshops and concerts.
