Casa Paco D’ilhas is located on a hilltop overlooking the world-renowned surf breaks of Ericeira, a small fisherman’s village, which has become a world-renowned surf destination. Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro, and Casa Acores are just a few names of the unique charming rooms at Casa Paço D’Ilhas. Some of them are smaller houses located in the garden and some are in the main building. There are double, triple, and twin rooms - all with their unique character. With 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 chill-out area, and a veranda - perfect for book-reading or sipping a glass of local vino Verde. The huge garden has two outdoor yoga decks or terraces (you might practice some sessions here if the weather allows), two large swimming pools, a veggie garden, plenty of chill-out areas, and a fire pit. At the end of the garden is a beautiful yoga shala, well-equipped with mats, bolsters, blankets, and straps.

Program

Imagine combining the creative, empowering practice of Vinyasa yoga with journaling. Vinyasa is a yoga style that makes you strong, physically, and mentally. Journaling, writing down your reflections, dreams, and desires, is such a powerful tool to create more meaning in your life, clearing your mind, and start manifesting the things you wish for in life.

This new year's retreat is for those who already have experience of Vinyasa flow or a similar Dynamic yoga style. It is not for beginners to yoga. With that said there, they will make sure everyone’s met where they are at - always offering many options and modifications in the classes.

You start each day with a two-hour dynamic Vinyasa flow practice, moving through the whole body. Each class will have a different theme or focus and includes pranayama and meditation. Your classes are physically demanding so get ready to move, breathe, and sometimes challenge yourself. You will have the chance to request poses you would like to work on during the week. In the afternoon, you come together again for deep-stretching Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation.

During this retreat, Inspiro Yoga will also offer one asana workshop where you go deeper into postures and techniques. Check-in is possible from 3:00 p.m. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your bags and chill out at the property or enjoy a walk to the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas (approximately 10 minutes). The retreat starts at 4:00 p.m. with a welcome gathering followed by a yoga and dinner. The retreat ends after yoga and breakfast at 11:00 a.m. on the last day.

At Casa Paco D’ilhas, you will get to savor colorful, nourishing, and delicious food.

Enjoy your breakfast together with freshly squeezed juice and herbal tea.

The lunch is light, usually a soup and a salad. Dinners are abundant and flavorful fusion dishes inspired by all their combined travels around the world. On New Year Eve, you celebrate with an abundant three-course dinner and bubbles.

The bus ride will take around one and one and a half hours (there is one express bus and one with a lot of stops) and costs just over 6 EUR. If you would like to get picked up at the bus station in Ericeira, let Inspiro Yoga know beforehand and they will arrange so you get picked up (free of charge). The other option’s to take a taxi. It will only take a few minutes and should not cost more than 10 EUR.

Arrival by taxi

From Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) to Casa Paco D’ilhas, a taxi ride is about 60 to 70 EUR (Uber’s around 45 EUR). Grab it just outside the arrival hall.
