Algarve Yoga Retreat Holidays
Yoga Detox Retreat
The Algarve is an idyllic setting for Yoga and Yoga inspired holidays. Here in southern Portugal, the rolling brush covered hills retire at the seaside forming a vivid and dramatic coast line. Our Yoga Holidays connect with the natural beauty happening around us.

The Yoga Retreat Centers:
We currently offer most Yoga Detox retreats at the majestic retreat center of Monte Velho. Located in the rolling hills of St. Vincent Natural Park (Carrapateria), Monte Velho sits on the western edge of Portugal and overlooks the great Atlantic ocean.
Life in Monte Velho is kept down to earth, though it is a first class resort with a large Yoga hall, sauna and steam room. The Monte Velho bungalows are very cozy and warm with comfortable beds. It is your decision if you want to stay in a single room or share a room with a fellow yogi. All the rooms at Monte Velho are en suite and are cleaned every day by the Monte Velho staff.

The Yoga Surf Holiday, the Hormone Yoga Retreats and some of the Yoga Detox Retreats will be held at Casa Douro. Situated in the hills of southern Portugal, near the many south coast beaches, Casa Douro is a lovely and quaint location for a yoga holiday. The estate belongs to a Swiss artist and her colourful taste is evident through out the guesthouse. The rustic country setting is perfect for meditation and relaxation, while the surrounding gardens are lush with vegetation. Single rooms, double rooms and dormitory housing are available at Casa Douro. The house comfortably sleeps twelve people.

Both estates are rooted in nature, and both are wonderful locations to practice a perfect Yogic lifestyle.
Both retreat centers are within walking/cycling distance to the ocean (30 - 60 minutes walking, 5 - 7 minutes by car).
In all retreats we offer very delicious and nutritious vegetarian food,
made from regional fresh produce purchased mostly from local farmer's markets. We stay away from wheat, life yeast, refined sugars (except local honey), coffee, black tea, alcohol, meat, fish and processed foods.
We do highly recommend that you stay clear of any toxic activities that interfere with the high-energy build up to your yoga holiday program. We do ask that our clients refrain from taking alcohol, nicotine or any other drugs for the duration of your stay, especially in the yoga detox holiday.
We promise to offer first class service (in accommodation, yoga, food and all other activities)
All meals are included. It is a holiday where you can truly come and relax. No cooking, no washing up, no organizing and you don't even need an alarm clock.
In order to confirm your space we ask for a 50 % reservation deposit (cancellation policy). Nowadays many of our retreats / holidays fill up, so it is advisable to secure your spaces early.
Our Yoga Retreats begin on Sunday evening at 6pm (arrival time between 3 and 6pm) and finish Saturday morning after breakfast (10am).
