Retreat location

This retreat will take place at Monte Velho Retreat Centre in Algarve, Portugal. Monte Velho was once a rural tourism center, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as a retreat center. Algarve is a region enriched by the strength of its nature, where the high cliffs overlook the ocean, filling the air with a fresh breeze, spreading myths and tales of fishermen, sailors and pirates, sunken ships, and great fisheries.

The dense energy that originates from the storms in the ocean, concentrates in the beautiful waves that break on the sweeping sandy coast. Additionally, there is a vast and unexplored area where several species can be seen. The location is a bearer of magical aromas and different plants, many of which are therapeutic.

Algarve is Portugal’s southernmost region, which is known for its sunny Mediterranean climate and its beach and golf resorts. The whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves were transformed in the sixties tourism boom, and nowadays its central coast between Lagos and Faro is lined with villas, hotels, bars, and restaurants.
