Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro, and Casa Acores are just a few names of the unique charming rooms at Casa Paço D’Ilhas Guesthouse. Some of them are little houses located in the garden and some are located in the main building. There are double, triple, and twin rooms - all with a very unique character. Imagine wooden and stone floors, antique beds, and vintage details. This place is full of soul and history.

The main building has a dining area with an open fireplace, a chillout area, and a veranda that is perfect for book-reading or for sipping a glass of local vino verde. Outside, in the garden is where your yoga shala is located. The garden also has two outdoor yoga decks/terraces (you might practice some sessions here if the weather allows), two large swimming pools, a veggie garden, plenty of chillout areas, and a fire pit.

Program

The yoga classes

This retreat is for those who love and practice Vinyasa yoga (or similar dynamic yoga style). It’s for those who already have some experience - not for beginners. With that said, there’ll be many different levels in the group - your instructor will make sure everyone’s met where they're at in their practice. They always offer a lot of options and modifications in their classes.

You start each day with a two-hour dynamic Vinyasa practice, moving through the whole body. Each class has a different theme/focus and includes pranayama and meditation. The classes are physically demanding so get ready to move, breathe and sometimes challenge yourself.

In the afternoon, the group comes together again for deep-stretching Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation. Throughout the retreat, there are also two yoga workshops on offer, allowing you to go deeper into asanas, philosophy and have time for journaling and discussions.

Check-in / arrival day

Check-in at Casa Paco D’ilhas is at 4 p.m. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your bags and either chill by the pool, take a dip in the pool, or maybe enjoy a walk to the beach Ribeira D’ilhas (approximately 10 minutes). The immersion starts at 5 p.m. You’ll gather either in the garden or in the yoga shala for a welcome snack and introduction, followed by a grounding flow class and dinner.

Check out / departure day

The immersion ends after your morning yoga class (this class will be 90 minutes) and breakfast on the last day of the retreat. Check out is at 11 a.m.

Retreat location

Casa Paco D’ilhas is located on a hilltop overlooking the world-renowned surf breaks of Ericeira, a small fisherman’s village, which over the last few years has become a world-renowned surf destination. Ericeira is located one less than an hour's drive north of Lisbon.

The nearest beach is called Praia de Ribeira D’ilhas and is only a 10-minute walk away from Casa Paco D’ilhas. Apart from this beach, there are another 10 stunning beaches nearby. Ericeira village is about seven minutes' drive and a 40-minute walk from the guesthouse.

Distances

  • Praia de Ribeira D’ilhas beach - 10 minutes' walk
  • Ericeira village - 7 minutes' drive / 40 minutes' walk

Food

Inspiro Yoga loves preparing and eating healthy, wholesome and beautifully served food and the quality of the food at their retreats are really important to them. At Casa Paco D’ilhas, you'll get to savor colorful, nourishing, and delicious food! The meals are based on what’s in season in Portugal at the time of the retreat and organic where possible. The kitchen team at Casa Paco D’ilhas are absolutely amazing chefs - they know you’ll love their food!

Apart from the standard continental breakfast at Casa Paco D’ilhas, you can expect colorful smoothie bowls, overnight oats, homemade granola, loads of toppings (roasted nuts, nut butter, superfoods, and more!), and fresh fruit. Enjoy with freshly squeezed juice and herbal tea.

The lunch’s light and refreshing, usually a soup or salad, to be enjoyed by the pool or on the veranda. Dinners are abundant and flavourful fusion dishes inspired by all their combined travels around the world. On the last evening, you’ll have a veggie barbecue in the garden (fresh fish will be available to those who wish) and live music to top it up!

How to get there

Recommended Airports

As Ericeira and the venue are located only one hour north of Lisbon and its airport, it’s quick and relatively cheap to get to Casa Paco D’ilhas, with several different options available. You can rent a car, which is a great option if you’d like to explore the surroundings during the week.

Arrival by bus

You can take the local bus from Campo Grande Bus station in Lisbon (about seven minutes' taxi drive from the airport) to Ericeira bus station, and from there a taxi to Casa Paco D’ilhas.

Arrival by taxi

The last option is that you take a taxi or an Uber all the way (around 60 EUR) either alone, or share it with other people coming for this immersion. If you’d like to share the ride from the airport or Lisbon city center, let Inspiro Yoga know and they'll connect you.

Grab it just outside the arrival hall. Sometimes the lines can be long, so if you’d like less hassle, you are recommended to get in touch with Joao and Ricardo, two local taxi drivers running a little taxi company in Ericeira.
