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.

Room options

Twin / double / triple / quadruple rooms available - let Inspiro Yoga know your preference and they’ll do their best to accommodate you.

Single room available upon request for an additional cost.

Program

This immersion’s for those who already have a Vinyasa flow practice, not for beginners. With that said, there will be many different levels and Inspiro Yoga will make sure everyone’s met where they're at in their practice - always offering many options and modifications.

You start each day with a two-hour dynamic Vinyasa flow practice, moving through the whole body. Each class will have a different theme/focus and includes pranayama and meditation. The classes are physically demanding, so get ready to move, breathe, and sometimes challenge yourself. You’ll have the chance to request poses you’d like to work on during the week.

In the afternoon, you come together again for deep stretching Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation. On one of the evenings, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a soothing sound healing session. Throughout the immersion, Inspiro Yoga will also offer two yoga workshops, 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.

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

The lunch is light and refreshing, usually a soup or salad, to be enjoyed by the pool or on the veranda. Dinners are abundant and flavorful fusion dishes inspired by all Inspiro Yoga's combined travels around the world. On the last evening, they organize 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

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS).

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.
