“Centro Punta de Couso” has a very special place in Laurent’s heart. This charming house is owned by noted musician Jacomina Kistemaker and sits on the beautiful Galician coast in Spain. This idyllic setting offers a true haven away from the outside world and all its obligations, giving guests a rare opportunity to explore personal growth and self-healing without distraction. Centro Punta de Couso, therefore, offers the ultimate retreat experience.
Located at the tip of Morrazo Peninsula in South West Galicia, Spain, this venue offers stunning views and access to the beach, forests and mountains of the rugged Atlantic coast.
This is definitely a place to reconnect, with yourself and everything around you. An environment where one can find the seclusion, peace, silence and serenity to go deeper and where the energy of the place “does half the job”. A place that invites to stop and reconnect with the essence of life, a place to come together!
The centre is around 45 minutes from the cities of Vigo and Pontevedra and 1:30 hrs from Santiago de Compostela. The Morrazo peninsula offers fantastic hiking paths along the coast.
