"Das Team wird wirklich allen Wünschen gerecht!"
In erster Linie ging es mir ums Surfen! Yoga war da ein hervorragender Ausgleich. Sehr schöne Yoga Shala, traumhafter Blick über Lourinhã! Julia ist super! Auch die Stunde bei Carlos war gut.

a wonderful holiday in a great location in the interior od the Land. loving people who were more of a host.
Die Anlage ist wunderschön und es fehlt an nix, es ist alle sehr naturverbunden und der Pool läd zum Verweilen ein.
Die Surfstunden sind sehr effizient und machen mit den Surflehrern wahnsinnig Spaß. Die Betreuung war sehr gut und die Lehrer sind auf das Level von einem eingegangen.
Die Yogsstunden sind der perfekte Ausgleich und sind umwerfend - von anstrengend bis zur Mediation.
Julia und Jenne haben das klasse gemacht.
Die Location auf dem Hügel im dem Chalet ist umwerfend.
Alles in allem ein klasse Urlaub mit netten Menschen um einen rum.
Eignet sich sowohl für allein reisen, oder mit Freunden al Paar oder in der Familie.
Für alle die Surf, Yoga und Spaß begeistert sind.

I had the best time at The Maverick and I can recommend anyone who is looking for a place to relax and meet wonderful people to spend some time there! I wish I could have stayed longer and I will be back for sure! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming from the moment I arrived until my departure when Julia and the rest of the team made it hard for me to leave. Besides The Maverick team the surf lessons are a reason to stay there. The groups are small and the instructors make sure everyone gets the support they need. In conclusion: great environment, beautiful houses and garden, fun surf lessons with experienced instructors, awesome food and most of all - amazing people! A must go!

"A great find"
We really liked the villas, beautifully landscaped amidst the natural setting. Ours was clean and comfortable and spacious and light and there are great communal areas for people to hang out in. Everyone there, staff and guests alike, were really friendly and helpful and we met some really nice people. The infinity pool and backdrop is very beautiful so we spent a lot of time there. Highlights for me were: Shaun's sushi class, the aerial yoga with Julia, and the massage with Carlos.

The whole combo of yoga and surfing is great, they have new facilities and the way it is all built is amazing. Many different spacious areas to walk around and do stuff, to spend time on your own or to talk to others, no force major to do any of these, very relaxing. Had a chance to speak to the owner and it all became clear that everthing was built out of love and with great creativity. Quite some story there!
As for the activities, I am a very beginner in Yoga and the yoga teacher Maya was wonderful, she adapted to our levels of experience as well as nicely encouraged us to go over our psychological limits. You can chose different types of yoga which is also good, especially for those who never tried any of it. The massage with Carlos was very good, I am quite picky with masagges but this one was great.
Surfing - loved it, I wish I had more chances to do it and learn some more. Would love to try such Yogaretreat in the future for sure, additionally with more meditation classes.
Julia, Stefan and the rest of the team were also helpful throughout our stay, a warm thank you to all.
Recommendation: ask about yoga and surfing classes schedule before arrival so you could book them straightaway and get started on them sooner.
