During this retreat, you will stay at Casa Paço D’ilhas, a traditional heritage-style guest house with all the modern amenities you can wish for. It’s located on a hilltop, overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira on one side, and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro on the other side. Just a 10-minute walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas.

In the main building, there’s a dining area, open fireplace, kitchen, and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro, and Casa Azores are just a few names of the very unique and charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’ilhas.

Imagine uneven wooden and stone floors, antique beds and chairs, and other vintage details. This is a place full of soul and history.

During your stay, you will wake up in one of the beautiful rooms and hear the sound of the ocean. You will then step onto the yoga deck and join a dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga class with simple meditation and breathing techniques in the garden. Enjoy a healthy yummy breakfast buffet with smoothie bowls, juices and fresh fruit in season, local bread and cheese, coffee, and tea. Later, you will get picked up for a surf lesson, treat yourself a massage, chill out by the swimming pool, or soak up the sun at one of the beautiful beaches nearby.

Some afternoons, you will gather together again for Yin or Restorative yoga. Other days, you might relax on the beach, or you can take some time for yourself to enjoy the surroundings or finally read that book. In the evening, a nourishing vegetarian dinner is served, inspired by what’s in season and Inspiro Yoga’s travels around the world - they promise to make your taste buds dance!

Watch the sunset or the stars, sit by the fire pit in the garden, have a glass of wine at one of the local wine bars in Ericeira, or listen to some live music. You are free to join the activities as much or as little as you like, depending on whether you feel like being more by yourself or with others. All in all, this is a retreat where you can truly disconnect from your daily life and to-do lists, be surrounded by beautiful nature, make new friends, and have plenty of time to just relax and be.
