About the Algarve

Join us in the Algarve! Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the Southern region of Portugal, you will experience the natural beauty of endless beaches embraced by towering red cliffs.

 

Carvoeiro is a picturesque and traditional Portuguese town that is peaceful and welcoming.  Carvoeiro has an idyllic setting with its soft golden sandy beach that is considered to be the most beautiful of the region as well as its boardwalk that offers a leisurely route.

Where we're staying

RETREAT DATES:  SEPTEMBER 14-21, 2024


We will stay at a private resort in the Algarve (Carvoeiro, Portugal) with apartment-style accommodations, a heated outdoor pool & jacuzzi, and a covered yoga pavilion.

During your free time relax by the pool on a sun lounger to read your favorite book, take a stroll to one of the many beaches in the area or try the cuisine at a local restaurant for lunch.

Each apartment is equipped with air-conditioning, towels, bed linen, bath soap, shampoo, conditions, body lotion, pool towels, a tv (international channels), a safety deposit box, and wifi internet.
