  • Laura Jane

    Laura is a highly dedicated, experienced, and passionate yoga instructor with advanced certified training in Ashtanga principles. Her dance studies and acrobatic skills have influenced the vigorous yet graceful way she practices and teaches yoga. She can easily motivate and inspire people to go beyond in her classes. Laura took various yoga teacher training and other yoga-related certifications in Thailand, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. She developed her yoga teaching experience in Macau and England, and currently she is teaching in Estoril.

  • Cátia Pereira

    Cátia is very mindful of the body-mind-spirit connection. She loves yoga, the arts of healing, psychology, and astrology. Born and raised in Portugal, she started to practice yoga in 2009. A deeper interest in yoga arose in Thailand, where she also took various healing training courses and, later, a Hatha yoga teacher training in India, in which meditation and mantra chantings had an important role. Cátia believes the yoga practice, while combining the use of sounds, breathing, and asanas, is a path to connect with one's inner self.

Located in a quiet neighborhood of Estoril, the House of Zen is a 400-meter walking distance to the beach and only 600 meters away from the nearest train station. Restaurants, supermarkets, banks, and other shops are also within walking distance.

    Review by Leanne Fox from Great Britain

    Idyllic in every way

    CONS Cons: Nothing.

    PROS Pros: House of zen is perfectly located, great roof terrace views, short walk from the beautiful beach and along to Cascais. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and everything is so reasonably priced. As beginners we weren't sure if the yoga would be too advanced. This is not the case. Such a varied group of people from all over the world and all levels of yoga were at this retreat and nobody felt uncomfortable. We were all able to achieve our personal yoga goals in the most tranquil and spotlessly clean environment. The staff and instructors are some of the nicest people I have ever met and the place floats like a dream. Your breakfast is prepared in perfect timing to await you after your class and it is exciting getting interesting foods each day. Maryam was also an amazing instructor and I wasn't able to rate her on the list but wanted to say how great her classes were. Thank you everyone at house of zen, just what me and my mum needed to escape our busy, hectic lives. Total recharge. Silvie the owner is also the kindest person who makes it her business to get to know you and adds a really personal touch to your stay... as well as making a surprise fuss of my mum on her birthday with cake:)

    Organizer response: Greetings from House of Zen! Thank you, thank you so much for taking your time and writing such a detailed, lovely review. We are so grateful that you both enjoyed the experience! Yes, our class groups are usually small and so the instructors have time enough to give a more personalised attention. We loved having you two ladies mom and daughter with such amazing energy with us! It was a great pleasure and you are welcome to return! Sending you lots of light and inspiration! Namaste.

    Review by Kerry Needs from Great Britain

    Lovely stay

    CONS Cons: I think the only thing that could be improved is having aircon for the rooms, and a mini fridge, so we could keep ourselves/ bottles of water cool if it gets too hot.

    PROS Pros: Lovely 3 night break in Estoril. The beach is only a 10 minute walk away, with plenty of good restaurants. The House of Zen is a great place to do yoga, particularly the roof terrace. Silvie is very friendly and welcoming, and Fiona makes the most delicious breakfasts.I found the yoga very enjoyable, Laura is very knowledgeable and a good yoga teacher. There is a beautiful garden out the back with hammocks, and the shared bathroom is very nice and spacious.There's also a corner balcony to relax on and a small 'living room' downstairs. I would certainly return to the House of Zen in the future!

    Organizer response: Thank you so much the staying with us! It was a pleasure to have a nice vibe group of girls with us at House of Zen. We are happy you enjoyed the classes and the breakfasts and you are certainly most welcome to return! Yes, I know you felt too hot to sleep in the first two nights, but the weather on the weekend you arrived was totally not the pattern here in the region. In fact, the house feels quite cool and pleasant during the whole summer, especially in the evening time and the fan is usually enough. On the third night you must have felt the difference - that was our usual weather pattern. Again, you are very welcome to return, even in summer :))

    Review by Karen Tam from Great Britain

    Lovely hotel owners, great yoga teachers.

    CONS Cons: The back gate, used after hours, if the front door is not accessible can get stuck and you feel like you can't get into the accommodation. Spoke to the hotel owners and they immediately rectified it by getting someone in to inspect the problem.

    PROS Pros: The personalised touch made to the healthy breakfasts. All made fresh by Silvie daily. The fresh juices are very tasty. Also the ambience the place provides, the calmness, the zen. The yoga teachers (I had Athena and Kimma) knows their stuff, proud to be a yogi there! Silvie and Michele were great hostesses, very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was extremely clean, and is cleaned daily. Bed comfortable, rooms are decorated to a high standard. The wifi connection was strong.

    Organizer response: Thank you so much for your generous review! We cannot but to feel encouraged to continue giving our heart while working and welcoming our guests. I am happy that you enjoyed so much the morning healthy breakfasts! Fruits and veggies are always the best choice for starting the day and this is what we offer in a simple and creative as much as possible.I love eating, so for me it is a pleasure preparing the juices and bowls. Glad to know you liked the classes too :). I will pass the message to Kimma and Athena - it will sure bring a smile to their faces! Sorry for the inconvenience regarding the backdoor. It is already repaired and it opens and closes again smoothly now. You are most welcome to return when you wish! Thank you! <3 Light and inspiration Silvie House of Zen

    "Nice and quiet B&B in Estoril. Close to the beach and train station, so you can easily walk. With the train you can be in Lissabon within 30 minutes and in 5 minutes in Cascais. Very friendly staff: I felt (almost) like home. With no yoga experience at all, the teachers helped me in a very positive and supportive way. I can recommend this B&B to everyone!"

    "I tried yoga in two different places before coming to house of Zen and it was good but never really felt a “connection”. In House of Zen I found a great combination. I did morning yoga lessons with Laura (more active and challenging for me) and evening lessons with Nivea (slower-paced and great to get a feel for the poses with more time for corrections) and from the first day I fell in love with their positivity, helpfulness, energy and the way I felt after the practice. The house itself is nice and peaceful and Michele and Silvie always welcome you with a smile. I am gonna miss you this winter!see you in spring."

    "The location is absolutely amazing, so close to Sao Joao train station and the beach and to Cascais which is a lovely walk along the promenade. The owners are friendly - morning breakfast chats were very personal and they genuinely wanted to talk to you and see if everything was okay, or to give recommendations (or just have a general chat). The rooms are simple yet clean and stylish. The 3 shared bathrooms are really nice, always clean and it didn't end up bothering me abouthaving to share a bathroom as I stayed downstairs and I think there was only one other room next to mine and we never had to wait to use it. The breakfast in the morning was fine (lacto-ovo vegetarian) but no soy/plant milk options. Nonetheless, the morning juices are made fresh and were delicious. And that garden! The yoga classes I attended were with Laura and Simona who were lovely and really knew their stuff. They are great at keeping the yoga practice all about the body, mind and spirit and it is easy to stay focused in such a quiet, open and sunny yoga room. As I only stayed three nights, I didn't feel that the retreat deepened my practice per se, but it was a great way to feel revitalised and relaxed during my time by the coast. "

    "From the warm welcome, the comfortable surroundings and the delicious breakfast with fresh juices everyday, to the super good yoga classes with lots of variety, the house of Zen really delivered on what I needed- a relaxing vacation practicing yoga in a beautiful location. It's close to the beach and some really great little cafes and restaurants and there are extra activities offered as well to suit a variety of tastes, like massage, surf lessons and hiking tours. Easy access from Lisbon, for me this was a five star experience- thank you ladies!"

    "House of Zen is a fab little Yoga B&B just a five minute walk away from the beach and 30 min walk away from the more bustling Cascais. You can also quite easily access travel to the Sintra mountains from where House of Zen is located - I spent a lot of time there and loved it! The house really does have a lovely, friendly and very Zen feel to it. The breakfasts were lovely with good coffee and fresh juices. And the rooms were always spotlessly clean along with the shared facilities. I attended the early morning yoga classes with Simona who I think is an excellent yoga teacher! Challenging and very compassionate in her approach to teaching - thank you again. And thank you to both Silvie and Michelle for providing such a lovely experience at House of Zen. I had the best solo break that I have had in a long time."

All of the teachers were amazing and as someone with limited yoga experience, they took time to explain alternatives and correct body position. I can't recommend it enough for anyone thinking of going on a yoga retreat."

    "This was a great retreat experience! I loved the house and the facilities, with a gorgeous sea view terrace, the simple yet very well decorated bedrooms, the staff, Silvie and Michele, are always ready to assist you. I really enjoyed the yoga classes with Laura and Catia. Great vibe, great place!"

    "I enjoyed my stay at the House of Zen very much! The rooms are so nice and have everything you need and the shared bathrooms were very, very clean all the time. Especially all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Thank you, Sylvie, for your great tips. The yoga classes with Laura and Nivea were outstanding, they take the time to really help you and the teaching style is just great! I can highly recommend the House of Zen to everyone who is looking for a sweet, small accommodation, very close to the wonderful beach!"

    "Had a wonderful 5-day stay in House of Zen and can warmly recommend this place to anyone! Beautiful house in a convenient location near the sea, run by lovely and caring people. I felt very welcome and zen in this place. Both yoga teachers are also true professionals and warm-hearted wonderful people, enjoyed their classes very much. This is a place where you arrive as a guest but leave as a friend - with recharged batteries and a big relaxed smile on your face! Thank you again for everything, guys! Wishing you all the best! Namaste! "

    "Me and my friend had tried yoga previously, but stopped practicing for a time. So this was a really nice way for us to pick up the yoga. The instructors are very patient and because the groups are small, so they do provide a very personalised teaching. The location is really close to the sea. There is a very small beach called Azarujjinha which I found specially pretty and quiet. The Portuguese grilled fish is delicious and you have restaurant choices by the sea boardwalk. I do recommend!"

    "New space in a peaceful area of Estoril, not far from Lisbon, and a few minutes from the seashore, if you would like to take a stroll to the beach. Cozy guesthouse with a good spirit to stop for a while from the busiest hours of work. Stayed there one night, they had just opened a few days before. Great staff."

    "I stayed here for three nights with my six-year-old daughter. It is a lovely, spotlessly clean house with a tranquil atmosphere. Bathrooms are shared and also were impeccably clean. We were made feel very welcome by Sylvie and Michele and my daughter felt right at home and even joined a yoga class with Nivea. There is a lovely safe shaded garden space with hammock type swings and various terraces to chill out on, including a rooftop one with fabulous views. Optional yoga and meditation are available and the quality of the classes was excellent. A fabulous, family-friendly beach was a five-minute walk away and also a supermarket and very good beachside restaurants. I would highly recommend and would love to come again for a weekend break soon with friends."

    "A wonderful, clean, spacious, and relaxing guesthouse, just five minutes from the beach in the center of Estoril. This place is truly special with perfect rooms, its very own yoga studio, stunning views of the sea from the rooftop terrace, great value for money, wonderful staff, and a very homely feel. Definitely coming back here again soon!"
