RETREATS

casa fuzetta

PORTUGAL RETREAT – 3RD – 8TH APRIL 2018

Set in the small fishing town of Olhao in Portugal, our home for five nights, Casa Fuzetta, has been recently refurbished to not only highlight the charm of the area, but to bring a little slice of luxury into your stay. Full of hidden hooks and beautiful old features, the house is a truly magical place for all who stay there.

The rooftop area will allow us the perfect space to practice and for you to further your yoga journey. And it will of course provide space for lots of relaxing under the sun and an amazing dining area for our big brunches and dinner.

FOOD

This is a huge part of any retreat and something I have put a lot of time into planning. I will be partnering with the awesome Keith Keiller (ex-chef for Grace Belgravia), for this retreat. We worked together on my most recent retreat and I couldn’t have asked for a better chef. Together we have designed a menu that we think you’ll love. Bringing you a mainly vegetarian menu, with a couple of fish nights, it’s all set to be incredibly yummy. We can of course cater to any dietary requirements. Keith and I have been friends for many years, so to be able to bring him on board for another retreat is super exciting.

THE AREA

The area of Olhao is absolutely stunning, so there will be many opportunities for us to venture out as a group or for you to go and explore alone. As part of the package I have arranged a trip to one of the small islands for us, where we’ll relax on the beach and swim in the sea. There are also many eateries around in case you fancy eating out for lunch or dinner.

TESTIMONIALS

“Honestly this was the most incredible, incredible experience. I walked away with it with an open heart, a new-found passion for yoga, renewed energy and a bunch of friends. It was the first time I really understood the power of the practice and meditation and I’ve been trying to stick with it as much as possible.

“I cannot thank you enough for the week we have just had in the most stunning house. I always knew the yoga was going to be great and there was going to be a great energy around you, however I could never have imagined just how much it made an impact on me.”

“The food rocked, the venue rocked and the yoga rocked. I literally cannot think of anything I would like to change.”casa 2
