Casa Paço D’ilhas, our retreat home, located on a hilltop overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira is only a 10 min walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas.
A truly magical place that we’d love to share with you!
Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro and Casa Azores are just a few names of the very unique and charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’ilhas. Imagine uneven wooden and stone floors, antique beds and chairs and other vintage details – this is a place full of soul and history!
In the main building there’s a dining room with an open fire place and a super nice veranda - perfect for book reading or sipping a glass of local green wine!
In the huge lush garden you’ll find many hideaway spots, chill out areas, two yoga decks, a fire pit, veggie garden, hammocks and two large swimming pools.
We LOVE preparing, eating and enjoying healthy and delicious food! At our retreat you'll get to savour colourful and nourishing wholesome food - based on whats in season (organic where possible). Always prepared with lots of love!
At the breakfast buffet you can expect colourful smoothie bowls with loads of toppings, nuts, fresh juices, homemade granola and always loads of delicious seasonal fruits. The lunch is light and refreshing - usually a soup or salad, to be enjoyed by the pool or on the veranda.
Dinners are abundant and flavourful with dishes inspired by our travels around. One of the evenings we'll also do a veggie barbecue in the garden, with fresh fish available for those who wish.
Our days begin with a 90 min dynamic Vinyasa Flow practice with sequences and transitions moving through the whole body. Each day we have a different theme or focus and also include pranayama and shorter meditations into the practice. Get ready to move, breathe and sometimes challenge yourself into new poses!
In the afternoons we nurture our bodies with a blend of soothing Yin yoga including deep stretches and relaxation.
NOTE: Our Vinyasa Flow classes are physically demanding so we don’t recommend this retreat to a complete beginner of yoga. With that said they’re open to all levels and we make sure everyone’s met where they're at in their practice with different options to explore.
During this retreat you have the chance to try out surfing in one of the most beautiful surf spots in Europe. Ericeira is a world-known town amongst surfers and we think everyone should try, at least once, to surf in this magical place! We work with a small local surf school with professional instructors that were pretty much born in the ocean. Before the lesson they’ll inform you about everything necessary, take you safely into the water and make sure you have fun in the water!
NOTE: There’s ONE surf lesson included in the package, however if you’d like to add one or more lessons to the retreat, that’s possible (we just need to check the tides).
