Join Prana Casa in this retreat focused on reuniting you with your true self through community, yoga practice, teachings, wholesome food, and meditation. During this retreat, you will enjoy your stay in a stunning natural park in the South West Coast of Portugal, where you will be surrounded by the beautiful beaches, dramatic cliffs, and lush greenery. Prana Casa will do everything to make sure you feel like it’s your home away from home!
You will be staying in a private double room or shared dormitory. The dormitory accommodates from two to four persons. The house features three bedrooms. Two are doubles (25 square meters) with a shared bathroom and the other one is a large dorm room (35 square meters) with an attached bathroom.
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 in only a five-minute walking distance of the accommodation, while the closest beach is about two and a half kilometers away.
The house itself has a large garden boasting shady olive trees and an extended herb and vegetable garden. A salt water 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. If there is a bad weather, the class will be held indoors.
During this week, Prana Casa will share with you some of the yoga philosophy and will deepen your practice and knowledge on other 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 200 kilometers, 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 salt water swimming pool, go for a walk, and treat yourself to a relaxing healing or massage.
Since one of the easiest ways to reignite your connection with yourself is through nature, Prana Casa's surroundings will help you with their abundance. Prana Casa welcomes both single travelers and couples of all skill levels to join the inspiring yoga and meditation retreat and invites you to join a community of like-minded people. This retreat is all about having meals together, sharing together, and meeting people with different backgrounds and interests that you might not meet otherwise.
After a week, you will feel rejuvenated in your body and more peaceful in your mind. Moreover, you might have learned some new things about yourself and have made some beautiful new friends.
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!
You will enjoy home cooked, wholesome and balanced, vegetarian breakfasts and evening meals during your stay. On the chef's night off, you can explore the incredible local cuisine that the area has to offer. On a walking distance you will find a small supermarket and also some cheap restaurants to get your lunch and snacks.
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 nestled in the Costa Vicentina natural park, Prana Casa recommends you discover some parts of the famous Rota Vicentina.
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 center and afford beautiful panoramic views of cork oak and pine woods, fields sprinkled with wild flowers and the sea in the distance.
The old town spreading down the hillside is a charming mix of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, with the characteristic colorful trimmings around the windows. The newer part of town was established in the 18th century to relocate the population after the destruction caused by the 1755 earthquake, and lies at a short distance from the hill on the other side of the river.
Heading out of town, it is hard to decide what is more appealing, the countryside or the coastline. Other beautiful nearby villages are Carrepateira, Bordeira, Odeceixe or the mountains on Monchique. Let the team of Prana Casa advice you.

There really is just one word to describe a carriage ride: relaxing! The calm horse pulling the elegant wooden carriage through our beautiful village. See individual villas with international decor, several garden designs and colorful flowers. It is such a different perspective to glide over two meters above the ground - soundless, if not for the rhythmic and smooth clipping of a horses hooves. Nice to share with your fellow guests!
The classes include transfer, material, three hours instruction from a local surf school who thinks 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) boot suitable for all levels.
Set your spirit free and learn to trust the beautiful nature of a horse.
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. You can meander through colorful drifts of spring flowers and forests or see the ripening grapes and wheat fields in the autumn. Visit archaeological sites, fantastic beaches, and unspoiled villages as you pedal along some of the quietest roads in Europe. The more adventurous choose to ride a mountain bike as in this part of Portugal, most roads are still unpaved, so you can go on forever and just follow your nose.
