The accommodations are comfortable and meals are famous for the inclusion of California’s bounty of fresh produce. These retreats are designed for all levels of ability.

Taking some time to recharge with your friends is something most women need from time to time. Whether you want to commune with nature, catch some waves and sand, host a party, meditate, or tour wine country by bike, there is a retreat for everyone and women of all ages.
