See what we got up to last time in Javea:
Who is the retreat for?
No matter if you’re already a digital nomad or just starting out on your location independent adventure, if you’d love to meet like-minded women from all around the world, then this retreat is right for you. Freelancers, online business owners & remote employees, and 9-5ers are all welcome.
At previous retreats, we’ve had web designers, social media marketers, branding experts, community managers, launch specialists, writers, coders, bloggers, systems experts, business owners, copywriters, coaches, videographers and translators join us from 15 countries and of all ages.
Where is the retreat?
Sun and Co. is a thriving coworking and coliving space in Javea, Spain. Housed in a beautifully refurbished 19th-century building, Sun and Co. lies at the heart of Javea’s old town on the Mediterranean Coast.
Cute cobbled streets, crystal clear seas and rustic wine bars, Javea has them all. When we held our first ever retreat at Sun and Co, all the girls fell in love with the house and the charming and authentic town.
What happens at the retreat?
Not sure what a mastermind session is? Imagine an intimate feedback session where you can pick the brains of brilliant women with different backgrounds, expertise and skills to get input and advice on a project, challenge, or new idea you have. These are the heart and soul of our retreats.
You’ll learn just as much from other people’s masterminds as from your own. The masterminds will leave you feeling inspired and buzzing with new ideas.
Do you have a skill or expertise you’d like to share with the other girls? We all carry around so much knowledge, and this is a great opportunity to really share and learn from each other.
Past skill shares have covered topics like email marketing, Facebook ads, writing a compelling About Page, affiliate marketing, photography, productivity hacks, negotiation skills, systemising your business, SEO hacks… and so much more.
Coliving & Coworking
Coliving is becoming more and more popular amongst Digital Nomads. Sun and Co is a beautiful space (check out the photos below) that will make you feel right at home.
Being under one roof means we can easily organise spontaneous sessions or activities in our free time, especially in the gorgeous courtyard.
Sun and Co. also has super fast wifi and lots of comfy spots to get some work done or brainstorm ideas with new friends. Plus, there’s an amazing kitchen to cook lovely meals together.
Sitting with the group, sipping on cocktails, and helping someone draw out their plan for their next goal… there’s nothing better in my eyes. The resources, insights, and knowledge shared in those mastermind sessions were pure gold.
And what about our free time?
We work hard and play hard. Finding the balance between work and exploring new destinations is always difficult, so we’ll make it easy for you by organising some fun activities and unusual experiences. Javea has something to offer everyone, active nomad girls and beach bums alike. And of course, there’ll be spare time to get your work done too!
Javea is a beautiful town on the Costa Blanca. We’ll explore its charming historic old town, picturesque plazas, and enjoy some beach time.
Javea also has a great selection of fantastic restaurants serving delicious tapas, great wine and Spanish delicacies, not to forget the local market that’s only a few minutes from our accommodation. It’s a foodie’s dream!
Yoga, beaches, hiking & more!
We’ll enjoy a wonderful, relaxing yoga session at the beach to unwind from a full day of masterminding (we can also organise extra daily classes on request).
For the adventurous girls among us, we’ll organise an optional hike up Javea’s tallest peak. You’ll enjoy spectacular views of the town and bay.
For those who prefer some beach time, you can explore beautiful bays and beaches and try kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling.
I was a bit nervous at first, being queer AND vegan, to attend the DNG Las Palmas retreat. However, after having met Jenny at a meet up in Berlin, I felt confident that I wouldn’t get stuck in a group of girls only discussing makeup and
Sun and Co. is located in a gorgeous, newly refurbished 19th-century historic building in the heart of Javea.

Who’s behind this?
Hi there, my name is Jenny, I am the founder of Digital Nomad Girls and will be your host at the retreat in Javea.
My own digital nomad story is a bit unusual. In what feels like another life, I used to be a chemist. After finishing grad school in 2013, I went on an around-the-world trip which has since turned into a full-time nomadic life. You can read the whole story here.
Travel is my biggest passion (next to noodle soup) and I love nothing more than meeting awesome people from around the world, exploring new places together, coming up with crazy business ideas and eating great meals together. I hope to meet you soon!
How do I sign up for the retreat?
We’re so happy you want to join us! Fill in our application form to tell us a bit more about yourself. We’ll review your applications and set up a quick Skype call with you.
After that, we’ll send you an invitation and the payment details!
I'm not location independent yet, can I still join?
What are the rooms like?
The rooms are spacious, bright and clean with 2-4 beds and plenty of storage space. The bathrooms are shared but modern, beautiful and clean.
Can I share a room with my friend?
Can I bring my partner?
Can I bring my kids to the retreat?
While we’d love to be able to accommodate kids, this won’t be possible for this retreat. We will definitely consider it in future if this becomes a common request.
What activities does Javea have?
There are tons of activities available, including yoga, swimming, beach running, hiking, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, snorkelling or simply taking a stroll around the historic old town. You can also explore the Costa Blanca area after the retreat, with Valencia and Alicante both nearby.
Where exactly is Javea and how do I get there?
Javea is a town on Spain’s east coast. It is located roughly halfway between Valencia and Alicante, which both have international airports. You can get to Javea from either of these cities by bus. We’ll send you detailed instructions in your welcome pack.
Do I need a visa?
That depends on your nationality and passport. If you’re an EU citizen you won’t need a visa to travel to Spain. Please make sure you research the visa requirements for your passport and situation well before you plan to travel.
Can I stay before/after the retreat?
Of course! If you’d like to arrive before the retreat you will have to make your own accommodation arrangements as Sun and Co will host another event immediately before ours, but we can help you if needed. If you’d like to stay at Sun and Co afterwards, please let us know in the application form and we can book your place.
Will there be other (non-retreat) colivers there?
This depends on the number of girls coming to the retreat. In addition to the Sun and Co staff, there were a few other colivers staying last time, who we also made great friends with.
