Andrea welcomes you to her healing space, a 400-year-old farmhouse built of the local Maltese limestone, which has been renovated and kept in old-modern style, offering comfort, charm, and relaxation. The house lies on a ley line connected to a water portal just off the island of Comino. A magical space abundant in local crystals, plants, cats, and love.

The house is set on three floors with three en-suite bedrooms, a healing therapy cave, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room, fireplace, and a private pool overlooking Comino and Malta. The farmhouse offers a warm, sensual, and idyllic sanctuary to re-generate and re-invent yourself.

The Healing Tree has a community garden behind the house and uses in-season vegetables and herbs when in available. We also buy fresh goat cheese, goat milk, and free-range eggs from our neighbor, who is a shepherd and can be seen walking her sheep and goats daily by the house. The Healing Tree accommodation is simple, modest, and nurturing. You will be well looked after and nurtured as all your basic needs are provided for.

The Healing Tree space does not have a television but it does have a large table for you to share and support one another. The triangular common area kitchen, dining room, and living room are the heart of the home.

You will find fresh lemon turmeric water available as well as fresh herbal teas. Both the indoor and outdoor living spaces are comfortable and inviting - a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere to be in and enjoy. The Healing Tree also shares their home with their warm loving cats Molly, Tigre, Blackie, Oscar, Louisa, and Azue (all of which are indoor and outdoor cats).

You will stay in a private bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Fresh towels and linens, and a hairdryer are provided. There is Wi-Fi and each room is equipped with a gas heater for winter and a fan for summer. Andrea lives on the property.

Pool Room

The middle room, which connects to the common areas, has one queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. It has a door that connects directly to the pool. The bathroom also has a bathtub. It is the oldest room in the house and displays traditional Maltese tiles as well as high ceilings. The room is ideal for dream, relaxation, and connection to water.

Earth Room

The lower room, which is partially underground, has one queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. It connects to the healing cave. It is the quietest room in the home. The room is ideal as for deep introspection and meditation. The energy of the room and its cave have been known as an initiation room, where you are able to meet, embrace, and unlock awareness and power that has previously held you back.

Massages, sessions with Andrea, and yoga - weather not permitting in winter - will be held in the cave (only for those on retreat). We kindly ask you to allow us to pass through the room to the cave. All other uses of the cave are by the discretion of the guest in this room.

Program

This retreat focuses on the feminine within and around you and offers you plenty of time and space to enjoy the island as well as pamper yourself. Daily outdoor private yoga classes, sunrises, water tantra / water dance / floatation therapy, play the insightful game of transformation, healing massage sessions, learning about your womb and cycle, Reiki, silent sunrises, visiting powerful sacred feminine sites, and enjoying beaches and island life will help you rest, restore, and feel rejuvenated. If the weather permits, you will spend most of your time outside with Hatha & Yin Yoga classes, nature walks, cooking, and enjoying the sun, water, and loving yourself.

Your room is equipped with a queen bed, an en-suite bathroom, heater, fan, and use of the common area, kitchen, fireplace, and swimming pool. There is also a healing cave in which indoor therapies and yoga classes (depending on weather) are held.

Each retreat is tailored to what you need at a specific time through diet, yoga practices, guided meditations, healing therapies, guided walks, and free time.

Andrea Ridgway

Location

Welcome to the healing home of Andrea Ridgway. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean sea on the island of Gozo in the village of Qala. Gozo, which means 'joy', is a little spit of land sitting in the Mediterranean Sea with a unique rocky coastal landscape, waters so crystal-clear and the sky so bright blue that you’ll have to rub your eyes to believe what you are seeing. Gozo is the second-largest island of the Maltese Archipelago and is an ideal destination for those who treasure a slow, relaxed rhythm of life and cherish the unspoilt countryside and being close to the sea. The beauty of surrounding nature all around creates an ambiance of complete peace.
