The venue is located in Vicentine Coast Natural Park, in the southwest corner Algarve, Portugal. The nature reserve Costa Vicentina covers almost 75,000 hectares of secluded beaches, steep cliffs, sand dunes, fresh lagoons, and green hills spread along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. The villa is located outside the picturesque fisherman village Vila do Bispo.
As building is mostly forbidden, the area has remained untouched by tourism. Just a few picturesque Portuguese fishermen villages and surfers camping in their vans illustrate the astonishing nature along the coast. And the villa is located right in the middle of that.
A calm environment is what you need to reconnect with yourself, to let go of your ongoing thoughts, and to breathe. What would be a better way to meditate than sitting on top of a cliff, while the evening sun sets in the ocean right in front? Learn to give space to your body and soul in Europe's most beautiful national park, Costa Vicentina.
Explore the unspoiled white sand beaches with crystal clear water on the south coast, and hike along the rough black cliff sides on the west coast.
