OUR RETREAT HOME
Our retreat is held at a place very dear to our hearts - Casa Paço D’ilhas – a charming guest house established as far back as 1869, but with all modern amenities you can wish for. Located on a hilltop overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira the guesthouse is only a 10 min walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas.
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!
The main building has a dining with an open fire place, a bar and a super cute veranda - perfect for book reading or sipping a glass of local green wine!
In the huge lush garden there’s a chill out area, two yoga decks, a fire pit, veggie garden, hammocks, and two large swimming pools.
We guarantee love at first sight!

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.
The 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 dynamic Vinyasa Flow practice, where we synchronise movement and breath, pranayama (breathing exercises) and short meditations. Get ready to move, breathe and sometimes challenge yourself!
In the afternoons we nurture our bodies with a blend of soothing Restorative yoga and Yin yoga (deep stretches).
Our classes are open to all levels - we make sure everyone is met where they're at in their practice. With that said our Vinyasa Flow classes are quite strong and sometimes physically demanding, so we wouldn’t recommend this practice to a complete beginner.
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 you necessary, take you safely into the water and make sure you have fun in the water.
NOTE: I the package ONE lesson is included, however if you’d like to add a lesson or two to the retreat, that’s possible (we just need to check the tides).
