Our goal is to make health improvements affordable by:
“Keeping it simple and focusing on evidence based strategies”.
Be free from any form of addiction: our Health Retreat is a smoke and alcohol free environment.
Eat a healthy diet: our guests have free access to the organic fruits and nuts that grow on our property (when in season).
Be physically active: swimming in our pool or walking/jogging through our beautiful rural landscape is a great way to get fit.
Optimizing one’s own mental health: our property is ideally suited to relax, reflect and meditate in peace and quiet.

We are on an 18 acre pocket of peace and serenity in the lush subtropical northern NSW. Only 20 min from the Ballina beaches, 40 min from famous Byron bay, 15 min from Lismore and a bit under 2 hours from the Gold Coast.
Australia offers a large number of wonderful "Health and Well-being Retreats" that offer outstanding food and a large range of "pampering services". Unfortunately not everyone can afford to stay at these retreats which will cost over $4000 a week.
At La Mancha we have chosen to stick with simple but proven strategies and offer you an affordable alternative. Our programs offer excellent value, whether you just need a space to achieve your own goals or want to learn a new skill at one of our seminars or workshops.
