Namaste Esperanza


Namaste Esperanza Retreat is located in beautiful Woodville, Hants County, Nova Scotia. The farm is 45 minutes from downtown Halifax, 40 minutes from Halifax International Airport, and in the heart of Nova Scotia’s horse country. This peaceful rural property consists of approximately 135 acres, including 35 acres of cleared land, 100 acres of mixed forest, and a 10-acre lake.

This non-traditional venue in Woodville, Nova Scotia is in the “cradle of nature” in a stunning, secluded setting. Visitors have the unique privilege of being surrounded by a vast array of wildlife in this area. Daily, we see hawks, eagles, pheasants, coyotes, beavers, blue herons, owls and many other indigenous species. We also have horses, cats and a dog on the property, with whom we are deeply connected and supported by.
