TRANSPORT / HOW TO GET THERE
If you’re looking at being more independent and are curious to explore the area during the retreat, we highly recommend getting a rental car. It’s pretty cheap to get one in Portugal, especially in May and October as it’s not high season here then.
Check out www.rentalcars.com for good deals!
If you’re skipping the car (which is totally fine!), your option is either to grab a taxi at the airport or use public transport (bus) to get to the retreat. If you’d like to connect to others doing the same, and maybe share a ride to the venue, let us know - we’ll put you in touch with others arriving at a similar time.
From Lisbon airport to Casa Paco D’ilhas a taxi ride is about 60 €. You can grab one outside of the arrival hall or if you’d like us to order one - for you we for sure can!
To take the bus to Ericeira you need to go to Campo Grande Bus station, located only a 5 min taxi ride (costs about 7€) from the airport. There are buses leaving to Ericeira every hour (sometimes more). The bus ride will take around 1-1,5 hr (there’s one express bus and one with more stops). You can find the timetable at www.mafrense.pt.
If you’d like to get picked up at the bus station in Ericeira let us know before hand and we’ll arrange it (free of charge). The other option is to take a taxi from there - it will only take a few minutes and shouldn’t cost more than 10€.
Let us know if you have any questions regarding your transportation - we’re here to help!
CHECK IN / ARRIVAL DAY
Check in at Casa Paco D’ilhas is at at 4pm on the first day of the retreat. If you arrive earlier you can chill by the pool, on the veranda or maybe enjoy a walk down to the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas (about a 15 min). The retreat starts at 5pm with a welcome snack and gathering, followed by a grounding Flow & Yin Fusion class and a welcome dinner.
CHECK OUT / DEPARTURE DAY
The retreat ends after yoga and breakfast on the last day of the retreat. Check out is at 11am.
