The holiday 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 (each has a private bathroom) or in a one-bedroom house for single or shared occupancy.

Program

This kind of holiday is for all the travelers who love the outdoors, nature, and the beach; who want to practice or are curious to try yoga and surf; and who want to learn about and explore the beautiful region of Alentejo. It is also for the ones who love food and wine and want to indulge themselves while keeping healthy. You will be received as if you were at a friend's house in a small, intimate group in a beautiful property surrounded by plants, trees, and flowers where the hosts grow a lot of what they eat.

Food and wine are a major part of this program. You will be in a fun, informal, and inspiring environment. You will explore the amazing beaches of the protected park of Costa Vicentina together. The schedule will be built every day around the surf conditions and the best time to do it. If you are a beginner, you will learn all the basics of surfing. If you are already an experienced surfer, you will go in with the crew and get tips to improve.

Yoga classes are in small groups in a stunning outdoor location surrounded by pine trees. The instructor will adapt the class to the group and challenge you to make a little progress every day. Surf classes are on the amazing beaches of the protected park of Costa Vicentina with a certified instructor.

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.
