After searching venues throughout Europe a few years ago, we could not have been happier to have fallen upon this beautiful, idyllic mountain hideaway.

It is the perfect location within the Algarve. Unspoilt and peaceful. Purposely built initially for artists and writers, then the yogi’s moved in, believing it to be a place carrying peaceful healing energy. Once you arrive, you do feel that you’re somewhere quite special, there is a wonderful non-touristy vibe.

During your stay, we offer walks/jogging through the mountains at Sunrise, a variety of yoga classes throughout the day, from Yin Yoga, Flow/Vinyasa more Dynamic, Aerial Yoga, Workshops, (this year we offered an Aerial Inversion Playshop, last year mastering head stands), Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

There really is something for everyone and all classes are thoughtfully considered for all levels. Depending on how you are feeling each day, there will be options for you to practice therapeutically or dynamically. We have our Beach Yoga/Picnic excursion which is included in the price.

Here we also practice pranayama and meditation, there is nothing more beautiful than meditating to the sound of the ocean.

We will also be offering a Paddle Boarding excursion, after this year’s success. This will include Paddle Boarding to a close by Island, picnicking, a chance to try some SupYoga and Paddle Boarding back to the beach. For all levels, including the absolute beginner.

We also organise for groups to visit the beautiful town of Tavira, gorgeous little shops and plenty of sightseeing.

There are plenty of hammocks dotted about the valley and main house, as well as each cabin having its own, for you to sunbathe or relax in the shade and catch up on a good book.

Included in your stay we offer 3 healthy freshly cooked Vegan/Vegetarian meals with tea’s and water. We have our own chef, who will look after you and ensure all your dietary requirements are met. You will not go hungry, her food is delicious, her knowledge is exceptional, and her cookbook will now, fingers crossed, be finalised. She pours love into her food and you can taste it. Most of the yogis from previous years are not Vegan, but have really enjoyed the week, trying new and interesting recipes.

The focus on the retreat is for you to come back feeling healthy, happy and rejuvenated, therefore no alcohol is permitted.

The accommodation is basic, but with everything we need. Included is the use of the small pool, towels are provided. While there are some yoga mats, we recommend you bring your own.

On the premises is a treatment/massage room with a range of holistic therapies.

A full body massage with Estrella (she is amazing), is 45 euros and paid locally.

We will take bookings once we arrive.

We will place you in the house on a first come first serve basis, unless you specifically ask for a cabin. Once the main house is full, we will allocate you a cabin.
