This superb boutique style villa is situated just outside the picturesque fishermen’s village Burgau. Enjoy the wide view on the ocean from one of the terraces and take a dip in the pool to refresh. A pretty white sandy beach ‘ Cabanas Velhas’ is just a short walk down the road. The small but lively village has a few really good restaurants and a pretty white sanded beach ideal for a stroll or for sunbathing.

The living room is spacious and comfortable with a wood burner for cosy evenings. Sit back and relax with a glass of local wine or a cup of tea after a surf day with your new friends.

Around the lodge you can find plenty of terraces to soak up the sun and be protected from the wind. Enjoy the amazing view over the ocean from the pool in one of the sun loungers.

Program

Yoga and surfing go well together. Both disciplines tap into a natural flow. In yoga, you learn not to force any pose, but to find the depth of the pose in the moment. In surfing you learn that you can’t force a wave. Instead you practice being fully in the moment so you can catch a wave. There are a few benefits yoga brings to surfers : it gives you paddle power ( high plank to low plank) , breath control, brain to body coordination and injury prevention.

Yoga

The yoga that you will practice in the mornings or afternoons is entirely designed to stretch and strengthen your body for the surfing. It is one hour of pure relaxation to start or finish the day with. Chicks on Waves believes yoga will improve your surfing in various ways.

Surf

Chicks on Waves offers personal surf coaching to small groups for quick learning. The coaches are passionate surfers with great experience and knowledge of the region and types of waves. They will also be your guide for the journey and take you around for a tour so you can explore the area.

Depending on the waves and tides we will adapt our daily schedule to the best conditions that day. We either practice yoga in the early mornings or in the late afternoon. After a nourishing breakfast ( think oat meals, fruit juices, fresh bread and muesli, eggs and daily specials) you will be picked up by our surf coaches to bring you to the best surf spot! You will have 3 hours surf lessons (1 long or 2 short sessions) per day. There is plenty of time to chill out on the beach in between the surf sessions.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Burgau, a typical Portuguese fishermen’s village located in Algarve. Burgau is situated on the south coast, in between Sagres and Lagos. You can bike there in a short time on one of the mountain bikes that are at your disposal. The pretty sand beach called ‘Praia das Cabanhas Velhas’ is only a few minutes walk from the house and has sun beds in the summer. The village has a few good restaurants to try out and a nice beach protected from the North wind. There are lots of beaches to discover nearby such as Praia das Furnas, Praia da Salema, Praia da Figueira and more.

It is a one-hour drive from Faro Airport (FAO) and three hours away from Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS).
