The house is located in Monte Clerigo beach which is in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, on the west coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a typical Portuguese house, which has just been renovated. It contains two twin bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living room, storage room, and an outdoor area.

Being on a small hill you will enjoy the endless views over the ocean which is only a two-minute walking distance away. The beach house is perfect for nature lovers and those that enjoy the simpler things. The house is rustic and basic but has everything you need during your stay.

Monte Clerigo and this beach house have a lot of Portuguese charm, it is a beautiful, peaceful location for our yoga program. The mindful walks start just behind the house there where is the famous Rota Vicentina trail, the old fisherman's trail that follows the coastline and offers a great view and moments for reflection.

You get to enjoy the amazing sunsets, every night and walk to the beach whenever you want. In the summertime, this beach gets busy with locals, but being on a prime location, you can easily avoid this.

Where other tourists need cars to get to the beach and have problems finding parking spaces, you will have private parking next to the house, but saying that you won´t need to rent a car to explore more of the environment, here is everything just on your doorstep!

There are three beach restaurants where you can enjoy affordable meals, tapas and drinks, and Wi-Fi, though we always promote to be offline during your stay. Limited single occupancy rooms for a surcharge are available. Please contact Prana Casa for more information regarding this.

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.

Location

The retreat will take place in Portugal's least developed region, the western Algarve. Algarve boasts nationally protected nature reserves, pristine beaches, wild coastlines, and dramatic jagged cliffs. The region is also home to Europes southwestern most point, Cabo de So Vicente (Cape St Vincent). All this is only 30 kilometers from the busy southern Algarve coast!

Nearby places

  • Arrifana beach - 5 minutes drive
  • Amoreira beach - 5 minutes drive
  • Monte Clerigo beach - 5 minutes drive
  • Rota Vicentina trail - 5 minutes walk

Food

Your food is prepared by your yoga instructor and are healthy yet simple so you could be inspired to take some recipes home and integrate 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, 1 night we take you to a local restaurant where you can choose to have vegetarian or maybe some local fish, if the weather is good we will organise a fish/veggie BBQ in the garden. One night is free for you to decide where you like to go and eat (at own cost) this will be on a day where we do morning yoga, breakfast and mindful walk, cause it allows you to enjoy the whole afternoon without having to look at the time somewhere else.

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 euro 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 euro and fresh soups are sold for around 2 euros, or you look for a prato de dia (dish of the day) in any restaurant which will cost you around 7,50 euro.

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

  • 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.
