7 Days Personal Growth and New Beginnings

Alentejo, Portugal, 27th Dec 2022 - 2nd January 2023

On this premium New Year’s Retreat in the beautiful nature park in south-west Portugal, we will be working on our mindsets, our bodies, our health and our happiness for an entire week.
We will be combining personal growth workshops with yoga and meditation with  and will be topping this off with beautiful hikes, sunset meditations and ayurvedic massages – not to forget the New Year’s ritual and celebration which will help us take what we’ve learnt and set for ourselves into the coming year of 2022!
This retreat has a special focus on personal growth. We want to learn how we can ditch old habits and establish new ones, transform negative mental patterns and fulfill our full potential.

Unique Nature Experience

It’s time for change! Escape the city noise and celebrate peaceful and transformative New Year's Eve in a healing nature setting.

Feel Alive and Connected

Connect with like-minded people from all over the world whilst engaging in the special retreat activities, living moments that you will never forget!


Located in the heart of the Vicentine Nature Park lies probably one of the highest quality venues in the Alentejo. Here, every room is decorated individually inspired by traditional Portuguese architecture. What makes this venue particularly special is its equestrian centre, which is highly experienced in arranging outstanding horse-riding trips along the woods or through flower covered fields.
The combination of the magnificent surroundings, the warm and welcoming atmosphere and the love for Portuguese traditions in music, food and architecture makes this place an ideal retreat location for spending this New Year’s  Retreat.

THE AREA - Alentejo

This New Year’s Retreat in Portugal offers the exceptional opportunity to discover Portugal’s beauty beyond its main touristic cities and well-known yoga places. Not many people know that Alentejo is one of Portugal’s most beautiful and untouched regions.
Located in the Vicentine Nature Park, the venue has a unique combination of natural wonders: the mountains of Cercal, the Mira River, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Although having the amazing benefits of a peaceful nature experience, the beautiful beaches can be reached within only a short driving distance. As locals, we will be taking you to the hidden nature treasures, the most beautiful, empty beaches, the hidden waterfalls, the spots with the best waves for surfing, the hiking trails with the most stunning views and the most delicious local food.

Good Vibes

” The retreat was magical – from the peacocks wondering around the pool to the sunset meditation on the mountain with Antonio, and from making new friends from all over the world to eating the most perfect, healthy and delicious food. I am going back home with a smile on my face, tan on my skin, and joy in my heart ☺ “
