Casa Paço D’Ilhas, Ericeira, Portugal
24 - 31 Aug 2024
All too often our lives are passing us by in haze of busyness and stress. In a deep way this leaves us feeling disconnected from our bodies and from others. In this retreat we will come home to ourselves and to the beauty of finding connection with others.
This location retreats brings you all of the warmth and nourishment of an Azulfit retreat, in a new space, in Ericiera, Portugal. This small rural village with a rich cultural heritage, offers bohemian design, stunning locally sourced organic food, fresh ocean air, a passionate team and vibrant charm.
There is so much heart in this place. The food was extremely good, the common areas super cosy and inviting. Rooms were very clean and well taken care of. I loved being outside on their beautiful deck to enjoy the sun, read, eat... and took a dip in the very inviting swimming pool almost every day.
With its heritage buildings, locally sourced organic food, fresh ocean air, and rustic charm – this is an wonderful location for a truly revitalising retreat.
Surrounded by nature, you’ll wake up with the sound of the breaking waves when a good swell hits the shore. Stretch yourself awake and rejuvenate on the beautiful ocean view yoga deck; find peace in the indoor yoga shala and nurturing in the massage studio; soak up the sun on the veranda before cooling off in one of the two pools; or nestle into hidden corners in the lush gardens with a good book.
Heading out of the retreat you can walk to the beach in just 20 minutes to spend a lazy afternoon by the sea. If you’re looking for something more active, the retreat is located in a world-class surf zone with an exceptional variety of surfspots, catering for different levels and tastes of surfing.
The pretty, white-washed town of Ericeira which sits atop sandstone cliffs above the blue Atlantic, is a 1hr walk or short drive away. Lisbon, Portugal’s enchanting capital, is also close by, as is the Unesco heritage town Sintra.
Justin and Jelle, your hosts at Casa Paço D’Ilhas, are passionate about food: how it is sourced, the combinations of flavours and the effect on body and mind. They have travelled world wide, developing some truly unique and mouthwatering dishes through their varied experience with world cuisine.
They particularly love little-known, authentic flavors, and pure, honest ingredients. They understand like no other that a healthy mind can only function in complete harmony with a healthy, happy body and this is the experience that they would like to offer to you.
This ever-popular jivamukti yoga retreat includes vinyasa (flowing asana sequences), hands-on adjustments, pranayama, restorative classes, theory, meditation, guided chanting (don’t worry, it’s fun!) and deep relaxation.
How about a 180-degree panoramic view over the Atlantic Ocean from sunrise to sunset in the Casa Privada? Or maybe you’d prefer to be nestled into nature in the secluded cabana among flowering trees in the garden. Or enjoy the grandeur of the 19th Century main house, Casa Palheiro, with a countryside-view room. Or how about the rustic barn house with mezzanine, Casa Celeiro.
