I absolutely loved the retreat that Cintia organised for us. The minute I arrived I felt very welcomed and very well looked after. The villa with swimming pool was really lovely and one could chill well between the yoga practices. All the people from various countries and various walks of life got on very well we enjoyed our chats with Cintia and each other about how we felt after the practices and what our new life goals would be. For me personally this retreat was beginning of my new life journey.
I have not practiced yoga much in the past but after few days I got much stronger and flexible and I am determind to continue with yoga and meditation on regular basis from now on.
During the retreat we were taken to visit beautiful places on the island including the sunset which was lots of fun for all of us.
The vegetarian meals were delicious and very social time to spend time and chat with each other.
This retreat was a life changing experience for me and I could have not wished for a better, kinder and passionate teacher and host Cintia. xx
I love retreats, but this one was extra special.. There were so many layers to it that ensured this retreat stood out from the crowd.
Firstly the concept appealed to a diverse range of people; seasoned yogis, keen novelists and also curious creatives. From the moment we arrived at the blissful 42 Acres, there was a warm, loving atmosphere. We explored the gorgeous retreat house before tucking into an exceptional evening supper at the long communal table in the heart of the house.
Secondly, our host Cintia had beautifully curated a well thought out, immersive weekend delivered in this glorious homely environment. Our yoga teacher Robin focused on helping us develop our head stand technique and there were plenty of laughs along the way.
All weekend we were nourished with healing vegetarian food of the highest standard. Everything was a treat, we watched in wonder while the food was prepped by the wonderful chefs Mark and Andrea.
We had some free time to ramble around the beautiful grounds and beyond which was so inspiring, the garden has a grown up tree house with telescopes and a sense of pure magic.
I didn't participate in the creative writing workshop and chose to enjoy some quiet time instead which as a working mum of two I rarely get! I loved that there was something for everyone and it was a really restorative experience.
I look forward to the next retreat with The Blue House!
Blindly I lept at the opportunity for tranquility and experience, rolled into the beauty of a Somerset landscape. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect and actually this made it more interesting. Not having tried Yoga before was not really a problem and I am assured the feeling in my lower half will return soon.
What I most enjoyed was meeting like minded and interesting people that just wanted to share ideas, hopes and dreams plus the odd bottle of wine.
The food provided I can highly recommend and many a time I went back for seconds only to find the other guests had beaten me to it !
So if you are looking for an escape from the drudgery and boredom of everyday life or simply just want to get away from the neighbors or social media (there's little or no internet ) then pack your bags and follow a Friday afternoon sunset to a picturesque setting, down country roads that at some points, are no wider than your car!
Beautifully restorative and full of fun! Cintia's retreat at 42 acres was such a treat, she really chose a perfect place for us to relax, reenergize and be nourished head to toe. The house itself is so welcoming, amazing bedrooms/bathrooms and cosy nooks to warm up and read with a cup of tea. The grounds were lush and had fire pits and a tree house to explore :) The food was exceptional, fresh, local organic, nourishing, and so tasty and by the end of the weekend the kitchen felt like home away from home. Andreea who cooked for us has some great recipes to share! It was a breath of fresh air (literally) to go with the flow and really enjoy the grounds and then dive into classes/workshops with friendly folk. Any level of yogi ability was catered for and the head/hand stand classes were so much fun and informative. I would really recommend Cintia's retreats, she welcomed us so beautifully and created a weekend for us that was relaxing, inspiring and full of laughter :) Thank you to all involved.
I attended this retreat on the advice of my sister and I did not know what to expect. As a busy, London-based academic, I rarely take the time to unwind or do anything just for me. I have taken some yoga classes but never consistently. I assumed that I was not a typical candidate for a retreat! However, I am so glad I decided to go on this one. The weekend was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. I loved the yoga classes and I even managed to master a head stand for the first time.
The weekend had a relaxed pace to it. Outside of classes I went for walks, took a long bath, chatted by the fire and just went with the flow and had fun.
I cannot imagine a more beautiful setting for a retreat like this. The rooms are wonderfully luxurious but the whole house has a natural, rustic feel to it, with stunning countryside and forests to explore. There is even a beautiful tree-house where you can sit and read a book! It felt like everything you could ever need was right there (including a fire pit with a big stack of logs waiting beside it). It may seem like an exaggeration but the food was some of the best I've ever eaten - wholesome, fresh, nourishing and comforting. Every meal was delicious and clearly made with love (and local, organic produce). I cannot recommend Cintia's retreats enough. She is a wonderful host and made everyone feel so welcome. I look forward to hearing what she will do next and I will certainly be going back. Thank you so much to everyone involved!

Last week I had the privilege of being a guest of Cintia, at 42 Acres. (Creative Warrior) via The Blue House. The whole weekend was unpressured, uplifting, inspiring, and got my creative writing juices flowing, (thank you, Andrew Lownie).
The facilities were outstanding, warm and inviting, in fact, so much so, I didn't want to leave! The pace of life can be so fast and furious that we forget to tend to our own vessels.
Thank you, Cintia for showing me the way forward, my brain is less cluttered.
If you want to relax, in a warm friendly and spiritual environment then I would most definitely recommend! I will most definitely be back.

My first vacation after a long period and I could not choose better.
It took me awhile to sit down and write a recommendation just because I did not have words to describe this experience. All the magic starts from the very beginning how I came a cross this retreat, in contact with Cintia, meeting amazing people and discovering myself.
I am doing yoga for few years already, but I could notice improvement already after few classes with Cintia. She has a good sense to see when you need a little bit of push to embers your struggles and to come to poses that you thought you were never able to do it or at least not so soon. Handstands workshops were my favorite!
The choice of food for breakfast was great, lunches and dinners were absolutely tasty and covered all the nutritional needs of a vegetarian meal.
I could not have asked for a more welcoming, relaxing and beautiful environment and I left feeling renewed and very well cared.

Excellent, friendly and supportive environment.
Cintia's classes are a real pleasure.
Informative, encouraging, relaxing, and a great work out all in one. High recommended.

Truly amazing break! The villa was located in a lovely quiet area within easy reach of the town center. Pool area was great. Cinthia was very welcoming, caring and an excellent yoga teacher! She made everyone feel at home and relaxed. Our group members were of different levels of experience but Cinthia's sessions catered to everyone's needs. The food was yummy, healthy and fresh. We visited beaches off the beaten track that were some of the best I've seen and certainly wouldn't have known about if Cinthia hadn't taken us there. It was an amazing trip and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much Cinthia. Truly inspiring!

I've attended this yoga retreat in Ibiza as a special birthday present for myself as I've turned 40. I've been doing yoga for a while now but with 2 children and a busy life it is hard to find time for a proper practice.... This retreat has given me everything I needed and even exceeded my expectations!
Cintia our host and yoga teacher did everything in her power to welcome us warmly and throughout the retreat she was always there when we needed her! She is a wonderful, warm person and encouraged us to open up about our problems or struggles with yoga and with our own life.
The yoga practices were deep and challenging, we had 3 hrs of yoga daily with pranayama and wonderful savasana endings with visualisations. We all challenged ourselves with new postures and perfected our headstands. I love the practice on the beach at sunset and the others just by the pool or in the garden!
The villa is well equipped with a swimming pool and the rooms were spacious and we had our own morning fresh orange juice straight from the garden! The food was fresh and healthy, we really enjoyed getting our breakfasts ready in the mornings, learning a few new tips from each other!
I hope I can join her retreat soon again, I think Ibiza is a wonderful island to discover more of ourselves!
Namaste Cintia and thank you

I loved everything about this retreat from the beautiful villa in Ibiza where we stayed to amazing food, yoga, meditation to people who came on the retreat. It was a wonderful combination of two strong daily yoga classes with Cintia followed by meditation with beautiful vegetarian food. After 7 days, I could feel my strength returning and doing challenging postures that I hadn’t attempted in months. It was an opportunity for me to reflect on my current situation/career and make decisions about my future. I left the retreat feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend this retreat and meet Cintia as she is truly an inspirational person and put so much energy into making it work. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat to anyone who wants a relaxing break or to escape from the daily humdrum.
