We found a green get-a-way situated between green hills and wild nature. When we arrived to the accomodation, we knew instantly that this was the location we were looking for.
Its an old farm turned into a beautiful homestay called Quinte de Samoquirinha. The location is close by the old ficherman’s village Vila Nova de Milontes in Portugal, Alentejo.

Our daily yoga sessions incorporate all aspects of the Yoga method. Like postures, breathing exercises, energy work, deep relaxation and meditation. All in a down to earth way. We give you yoga tools wich you can apply at home, deepen your yoga practice or maybe yoga is a first timer for you. You are mostly welcome to experience what yoga can mean for you.

Surfing is a good way to connect yourself with mother nature. While teaching you this ancient sport, we take care that you enjoy it. So you are learning with plenty of fun. Maybe you never surfed. Then this is an excellent way to really learn to surf.
If you already have surfexperience, you can use this week to enhance your surflevel. Because we are in such a small group, you get full attention and personal tips and tricks.
All the equipment, surfboards, wetsuits and transportation will be taken care of.
The surfclasses are in coöperation with surfschool Surfmilfontes.
IVO: ‘One of the greatest challenges for the mind is to be tuned with the wave. The experience of this phenomenon arises often with a supreme joy. Those who are just beginning will learn to master their body and mind in the ocean. Those who already surfed before will improve and refine the experience. Read more about Ivo here.
We make everyday fresh vegetarian food. We buy the most of our fruits and vegetables from local farmers. We also don’t dismiss the opportunity to explore the restaurants in the area.
We dont detox or do juice fasting. We just make deliscious good food with the right amount of indulgence and restorative goodness. That’s the kind of yummy balance we’re after.
WHAT A RETREAT DAY LOOKS LIKE
We follow the tides of the ocean and the waves. Each day we’ll make the schedule according to it. So we have a window of opportunity to make the best out of each day. This is a global indication of what a retreat day looks like, and we keep 1 day ‘surf rest’ in the middle of the week.
