Casa Paço D’Ilhas, our venue for this specific retreat, is located on a hilltop overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira, a small surf town one hour north of Lisbon, Portugal.
This place is truly magical and we’d love to share it with you!
Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro and Casa Acores are just a few names of the unique charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’Ilhas Guesthouse. Imagine wooden and stone floors, antique beds and other vintage details. This place is full of soul and history!
The main building has a dining area with an open fire place, a chill out area and an awesome veranda - perfect for book reading or for sipping a glass of local green wine! In the huge lush garden there are many hideaway spots, chill-out areas, two yoga decks, an indoor yoga shala, a fire pit, veggie garden, hammocks and two large swimming pools!
There are tons of epic mind-blowing beaches in the area. The nearest one is called Ribeira D’ilhas and is only a 10 min walk away.
We LOVE preparing, eating and enjoying healthy, wholesome and delicious food! At this retreat you'll get to savour colourful and nourishing food based on what’s 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, freshly squeezed juices, homemade granola and always loads of mouth-watering 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 dishes inspired by our own as well as chef’s travels around the world. One of the evenings we organise a veggie barbecue in the garden, with fresh fish available for those who wish.
THE YOGA CLASSES*
Our days at the retreat begin with a dynamic Vinyasa Flow practice (90 min) moving through the whole body. Each class will have a different theme/focus and includes pranayama and shorter meditations. Get ready to move, breathe and sometimes challenge yourself!
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 to yoga. With that said, we make sure everyone’s met where they're at in their practice with different options to explore.
THE SURF LESSON*
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 here. We work with a small local surf school with professional instructors that were pretty much born in the ocean. Before the lesson begins they’ll inform you about everything necessary, take you safely into the water and make sure you have fun!
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).
