Accommodation

The retreat is held at a place very dear to Inspiro Yoga's hearts, Casa Paço D’ilhas – a traditional heritage-style (est. 1869) 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 fire place, kitchen, and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Cabana Jardim, 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, guaranteed love at first sight.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Ericeira, Portugal. Casa Paço D’Ilhas is located on an elusive hilltop overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of the Ericeira world surfing reserve on one side and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro Municipality on the other side. Set in a quiet outskirt of Ericeira village, they are surrounded by nature and wake up to the sound of breaking waves when a good swell hits the shores.

Ericeira village itself, just a short drive away, is a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has been catering for tourism for over eight centuries, whilst still always managing to maintain it`s original character, symbolised by it`s labyrinth of windswept alleys that whisper tales of seafaring adventures.
