Olhao is an ancient fishing town, which for various reasons has escaped over-development and mass tourism. The old town is a warren of narrow cobbled streets, cubist fishermen's houses and the faded grand houses of merchants who enjoyed commercial success at the end of the 19th century / early 20th century. The daily covered markets are regarded as some of the best in Portugal (if not, anywhere) and the Saturday morning market along the waterfront is foodie heaven, with the local smallholders offering for sale what was in the ground or on a tree no more than 24hrs before...
And all the local family run restaurants are consistently seeking to raise their game in offering their proud version of local specialties.
This is an all-levels yoga retreat.
WHAT'S INCLUDED AND NOT INCLUDED?
Good question! I love to include almost every single thing for you, so you don't have to do any thinking while nourishing your mind, body and soul on a yoga retreat!
2 yoga classes per full day (aside from arrival and departure days)
6 nights in a stunning private home with a rooftop pool
Lots of support from me
1 ceramics workshop
All teas, coffees and water
Airfare (please fly into Faro)
River taxi or ferry to islands (if you wish to explore more on your own in addition to our visit to a nearby island)
Lunches; however, on most retreats, lunches aren't always desired. It is also highly recommended to explore the town and try local restaurants.
Transfer to and from airport (roughly a 15 minute drive and I will put you in contact with other retreat guests so you can share taxis).
Travel insurance. HIGHLY recommended.
Our private historic townhouse located in the heart of Olhao’s old town. Originally, a classical gentleman’s residence, it was lovingly restored over a three year period, between 2014 and 2016. The skills of the local craftsmen and artisans were called upon to create a property that balances the heritage of its architecture with contemporary design and comfort- including a spectacular rooftop pool! A palette of natural colors and materials – white, stone, wood and linens were used - aiming to create a space in which everyone can feel at ease the moment they walk through the door…
Fabulous markets and a wide selection of family run restaurants are within easy walking distance of the house – as are the ferries and taxis to the outlying islands. While on retreat, you will have access to an app that was created for house guests, with maps and suggestions on the best places to eat and visit both in Olhao and the wider area.
Double: $1895, per person, shared twin room
Non-refundable deposit to hold your space: $450
HOW TO GET THERE
Fly into Faro Airport on arrival day (March 24th) and grab a taxi for a 15 minute drive to our private venue. More details are provided upon booking and as the time gets closer to our retreat! Please allow your flight to leave on Saturday, March 30th later in the afternoon, if possible. This way, you will get ample time to explore the amazing Saturday markets!
See you in Portugal!
