The Franciscan Retreat Center at Old Mission San Luis Rey offers a place for solitude, healing, and revitalization with a wide variety of spiritual and educational programs.
Create your private day away, join us for a half day or evening session or treat yourself, or a loved one, to a complete weekend of spirituality and sacred space. The Friars and staff are here to assist you on your spiritual journey.
Our 56 acres of property include beautifully manicured gardens and walkways. The Stations of the Cross, along the back of the property, provide a perfect backdrop for meditative walks and prayer. The swimming pool is available during the day as is the basketball/volleyball court. Each bed room has twin beds, a sink and a desk. European-style restrooms in the hallways have private showers and toilets.

(Some special dietary requests may be accommodated with advanced notice). Outdoor and patio seating is also available for socials and special dinners. Our professional staff is here to serve you and takes pride in continuing the Franciscan tradition of heritage and hospitality.
