About Portugal Yurt Retreat
Located in a magical shady valley in the heart of Portugal, our small center offers eco-friendly, ethical yoga retreats as well as family yurt holidays with the option of yoga for parents and children.
We host a variety of different retreats and teachers each year from May until the end of October. Spring de-tox retreats, pregnancy yoga retreats, Slow Yoga Flow, Movement and Meditation, Yoga, Dance and Wilderness, Chakra vinyasa and Chakra dancing, Yin/Yang Energetic Balance, to name a few.
Our centre, which is our home, is a small quinta (farm) located in the forest, just on the edge of a picturesque village, near to the higher mountains in central Portugal. We are completely sustainable, generating our electricity using both solar and hydro systems, heating water with the sun or wood, and keeping our vegetable garden organic. All our bathrooms are built from wood in a modern style and feature eco-composting toilets.
Our guest accomodation is in one of our romantic yurts, made on site using wood from our own land. Most of the furniture inside the yurts has also been made on site. The yurts sleep either three singles in mixed yurts or two singles/ a double in the smaller yurts. We have a maximum capacity of 10 guests on each retreat.
Outside of yoga classes, guests enjoy walks through the forest on the many tracks, walking to the reservoir (approx 15minutes) for a refreshing afternoon swim, walking to the village for a taste of traditional Portugal, or relaxing in our shady hammocks.
The food we cook is tasty and wholesome, using as much fresh vegetables from our garden, or locally sourced fruit and vegetables, which are plentiful in the part of Portugal.
