All the retreats  will be held at the charming luxury Quinta. It is located just 450m away from the vast, 14km long, golden-sand beach of Meia-Praia, in Lagos, Algarve. It is quietly nestled within a walled 7.500m2 area surrounded by pines and cypresses, providing the greatest tranquility and privacy possible. It is a private family-owned home in its 4th generation and has charming indoor and outdoor characteristics. It is an example of 1940’s regional architecture, and in it, you will find plenty of rooms and spaces where you can ease off and have the perfect retreat. The stunning & very private outside space offers two “chill-out” areas where you can lay down and take a break; a swimming pool and wonderful outside dining area.

In line with Yogaion’s sustainable ethics, the house is backed up by solar power, has plenty of seasonal fruit trees (apples, figs, pomegranates, lemons, loquats and pine nuts) and a garden where organic crops grow throughout the year which will be used in our delicious meals. If the fruits are ripe, you are welcome to pick them from trees.

All the food during the Yoga, Surf & Nourish Retreats is local & organic coming either straight from  the organic farms down the road or from the farmers market. This means that most of the waste is biodegradable and for any other waste there will be a full on recycling program. There is also a towel & sheet program, so that their will be no waste with the washing machine.
