yoga retreats

In the past year, we were not able to travel physically, but all of us have travelled mentally – through the typical lockdown highs and lows. 

Now, Portugal has opened up again and we are convinced that this is the best place to regain energy on an unforgettable meditation and yoga retreat!

 

This is why we’ve put together a very special programme for our Charming Sintra Retreat in October 2021. 

 

Relax with daily yoga or meditation classes, learn more about Portugal’s history, make new friends and create a lot of fun and sunny memories. During this retreat we will relax our body and minds and top this off with delicious healthy food, beautiful hikes and breath-taking adventures. 

It’s time to escape our flats and reconnect with nature and people in a natural, quiet environment surrounded by cliffs, waterfalls, forest and Portugal’s most beautiful nature spots.

It’s time to make some memories!

RETREAT HIGHLIGHTS

Daily Yoga & Meditation

Time to reset in nature. Daily yoga and meditation will help us go deeper and heal body and mind after an intense period.

Historic Sintra

Together, we'll discover the pastel-coloured cottages, villages, traditional castles, enchanted gardens and monasteries, to find out more about this town with the UNESCO World Heritage status.

Wonderful Hikes

Experience the trails along the cliffs over the Atlantic Ocean and beaches, or go deep into the lush green Sintra Natural Park.

Local Winery Tour & Tasting

Learn more about Portuguese wine on a guided tour of the local vineyard and adega and savour some of the best wines of the region!

Portuguese BBQ & Live Music

After sampling the delicious taste of the regional products, we'll be gathering for a candlelight guitar concert.

PINE TREE RESIDENCE

Hidden around the pine trees, in a quiet and peaceful setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean lies Pine Tree Residence, the ideal location for a yoga retreat.

This amazing gem with sea view has a swimming pool, tennis court, gym and beautiful gardens, including a fire pit for late evenings with live music.

Just a few minutes walk away lie some of Sintra’s most desert beaches, allowing us to fall asleep with a fresh ocean breeze and the music of the waves.

One of the highlights is the beautiful yoga and dining room with huge glass windows that offer an astonishing view of the surrounding nature.

From hiking on the cliffs near the ocean, immersing in the excellent trails in the Sintra forest, to surfing – this venue’s surrounding nature has everything a nature-lover needs. And for those who like horse riding, an equestrian center is also available not far from the house. 

THE AREA

Due to the mild temperatures in the summer, and the local micro climate, its never too hot, and from centuries ago has been chosen as the summer residence of the Portuguese royalty, nobles  and many writers and poets.

 

With its beautiful monuments, gardens and palaces such as the well known Pena Palace, Monserrate Gardens and the esoteric Quinta da Regaleira, amongst many others that certainly  are worth a visit.

 

Nearby are the beautiful Atlantic beaches of Adraga, Praia Grande and Praia das Maças.

"Spending one week in the community of the Wide Ocean Retreat was definitely the highlight of my trip in Portugal ! If you are looking for an unforgettable experience of sharing, meeting new friendships, learning about yourself but also about meditation, yoga, surfing, ocean, nature, macrobiotic food, .... without rush and empathizing with nature, then go for it! Thanks a lot to Antonio and Sara for caring and having made it so adapted to everyone here!"
