We are welcomed in an exclusive place, close to nature, nested in 20 hectares of native forest, in the countryside of Aljezur. Most part of the site is off 4G network which will allow you to take a REAL break. This unique site is just a short drive from the breathtaking and unspoiled beaches of the southwest Algarve and the famous trails of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park.
The Essencia center which welcomes us is a beautiful community project born from the desire to live in harmony with nature. It offers a magical setting for a magnificent and inspiring stay in nature, far from the hectic pace of modern life. We feel very lucky they have accepted to host us for our next Yoga retreat in Portugal.
Faro is the nearest airport and it’s about an hour’s drive away. If you come from Lisbonne, there are daily connections by bus from Lisbon to Aljezur.
