The retreat will take place at Quinta Camarena, a beautiful, rustic-chic countryside hotel, surrounded by nature. There are space and plenty of spots to relax, hike, chill, read, meditate, and drink wine. The yoga classes will be done in a big open-air shala surrounded by nature. A villa, a casita, a country loft, or private rooms. Each house has a private entrance, living room, and equipped kitchenette. All spaces were carefully curated based on sustainable principles using local materials. For your comfort and enjoyment, Quinta Camarena wants to make you feel at home.

The decor of each house was meticulously curated by the hosts, with objects from their own art collection, family pieces, antiques, and furniture made in local recycled objects made following the principles of sustainability and circular economy. You will also find first quality linens in the beds and local, bio, artisanal soaps.

The guest houses are located by the garden and pool. The outdoor space is an open invitation to bond with your group in comfort and space. You can stay in a single or shared bedroom in the main villa (all bedrooms have a private bathroom) or in a one bedroom house for single or shared occupancy.

Program

Get out of the city, explore a new setting, and have a really, really good yoga class in an unexpected open-air spot, and have Quinta Camarena mentioned the wine? Oh. They did, didn’t they? Well, it's a big part. There's also hiking and the best wild beaches of Alentejo. Get out of your comfort zone and try a surf class or some rock climbing. This "kinda" retreat is for people that practice and love yoga. Or they’re just curious about it and all the amazing benefits it brings to your (cliché alert) body and mind. But it's true. And also fun. Explore nature, enjoy the delicious food and wine (again), and meet like-minded people.

Retreat location

Located in the protected area of Costa Vicentina, in the Southwest of Portugal, Quinta Camarena is ideally situated among the countryside and the beach. The picturesque town of Cercal is just a short walk from Costa Vicentina and will make you feel as though you went back in time, giving you a true sense of the Alentejo way of life. The region is full of nature, history, interesting architecture, and local artisans.

The famous Rota Vicentina, a long hiking path spanning nearly 400 kilometers along with one of the most beautifully preserved coastal areas of Europe passes directly in front of the property. This will lead you through forest tracks, to towns and villages with centuries of history. Within a 15 minutes drive, you can reach numerous and very diverse wild beaches, a few of them, are a real surfer's paradise.
