The peaceful property is located in an urbanization in the middle of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, on the west coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The entrance to the Rota Vicentina trail, the old fisherman's trail that follows the coastline, is within an only 5-minute walking distance of the accommodation.

The house has a large garden boasting shady olive trees, an extended herb, a pool bar with an outdoor kitchen and a beautiful meditation garden where you can practice your meditation any time a day. A swimming pool allows guests to sunbathe and relax while talking with friends and fellow guests. On most days, yoga classes will take place on the wooden yoga deck in the garden, while bad weather sees the class head indoors.

Program

In this week, Prana Casa will share with you some of the yoga philosophy and will deepen your practice and knowledge of some yoga subjects. They will guide you through some longer meditation and pranayama sessions, teach you the importance of yoga Nidra and much more.

To make sure you will get to see some part of the famous Rota Vicentina trail, which follows the coastline for over 200km, they will take you for a nature meditation walk and witness the sun setting in the ocean. Besides all this, you will have enough time for yourself so you can go to the beach, relax at the saltwater swimming pool, go for a walk and treat yourself with relaxing healing or massage.

After this week, you will feel rejuvenated in your body and more peaceful in your mind. Moreover, you might have learned some new things and have made some beautiful new friends.

Food

Your food is prepared by your yoga instructor and is healthy yet simple so you could be inspired to take some recipes home and integrate a healthy lifestyle in a simple way to your busy lifestyle. Every day there is a healthy breakfast buffet and home-cooked vegetarian (or vegan) dinners. Two nights are free for you to decide where you like to go and eat (at your own cost).

There are limited facilities to cook your own lunch, since we have set up a basic outside kitchen, but rather than cooking yourself you can pre-order a 5 EUR packed lunch deal which you can keep or bring along with you and enjoy wherever you like. Going out for lunch though is super cheap in Portugal: A drink is around 1 EUR and fresh soups are sold for around 2 EUR, or you look for a Prato de Dia (dish of the day) in any restaurant which will cost you around 7.50 EUR.

Alkaline water, herbal tea, and fruit are available during the day.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

The following drinks are included:

  • Water
  • Tea

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

Things to do (optional)

Free activity from your doorstep

Hiking the Rota Vicentina, the fisherman's trail .

Tracking right next to the coastline, the Rota Vicentina follows the trails used by locals to reach the beaches and hot fishing spots. It is a single track along the cliffs with plenty of sand, which can only be explored by foot. Since the accommodation is nested in the Costa Vicentina natural park, Prana Casa recommends you discover some parts of the famous Rota Vicentina.

Visiting Aljezur and surroundings by car or even local bus

The closest town from the accommodation is Aljezur, a beautiful representation of the untouched Algarve. Enjoy beautiful natural landscapes, where donkeys work the land, cowbells tinkle on the plains and some of the best beaches in Portugal await you.

Situated in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, the large natural park that extends along the western coast of the Algarve, Aljezur is a small agricultural town lying on the fertile plains that border the Aljezur river. The hilltop ruins of a 10th Century Moorish castle dominate the historic town centre

Other beautiful nearby villages are Carrepateira, Bordeira, Odeceixe, or the mountains on Monchique. Let the team of Prana Casa advice you.

Massage

Treat yourself with a massage at Prana Casa, share your wishes and we will find you the right offer.

Horse carriage riding (max five persons):

There really is just one word to describe a carriage ride: relaxing! The calm horse pulling the elegant wooden carriage through our beautiful village.

Surf classes

The classes include transfer, material, instruction from a local surf school who believes quality is more important than quantity! Everyone gets to stand up on the board!

The Algarve was the last major European surf region to be explored, and is getting very popular. Prana Casa is close to Monte Clerigo and Arrifana beach (three kilometers) both suitable for all levels.

Horse back riding

Set your spirit free and learn to trust the beautiful nature of a horse.

MTB rental

The southwest has a wide network of mainly unmapped dirt tracks that are great fun to explore on a (mountain) bike, with trips customized for all levels of ability.
