Retreat Location

The retreat will be held at Villa Angelica, Carmel, CA. Villa Angelica is located on Highway 1 just south of Carmel, across from scenic Monastery Beach. Nearby trails provide easy access to Carmel River State Beach and Point Lobos State Reserve. It is approximately two hours by car from San Jose CA International Airport; 1/2 hour from Monterey Regional Airport.

Villa Angelica is an intimate conference and retreat facility operated by the Sisters of Notre Dame. The Villa is built around a peaceful garden courtyard with a view of the nearby mountains. There is a combined living-dining room with a fireplace and a spacious kitchen. A meeting room will provide a comfortable space for the teaching.

Along with several rooms in the nearby House of Prayer, bedrooms accommodate 25 overnight guests, mostly doubles with a few singles and one triple. Local Sangha members may also choose to commute to the retreat from home. If more accommodations should be needed, out-of-town retreatants could be hosted by local Sangha members.
