EVERYTHING! The hosts Ali and Pedro were absolutely amazing. Pedro is very knowledgable in Yoga, Pilates, Meditation, Stress Management, Life Coaching etc. Ali is the best cook in the world. Both are very warm-hearted persons and they took such good care of us. The garden with all the vegetable and fruit is amazing and even better is what Ali makes of it. It is impossible not to love her food. The Workshops were interesting and eye-opening. The days had a flexible structure and they adapted to our needs. For example, we did a wine-tasting tour that was not planned initially. Everything is made possible to make sure everyone gets the most of of the week. The house is really nice, too and the cute cats are lovely. The Location is excellent as is it just a few mins walk from the beach. Don't miss the sunset here!
I would come back anytime and can recommend this to anyone who wants to calm down from everyday stressful life.

"Une retraite au paradis"
Ali et Pedro sont d'un calme et d'une bienveillance vraiment apaisants, la maison où nous sommes accueillis est très propre, lumineuse et calme, avec le parfait équilibre entre intimité de chacun et moments de convivialité.
Les cours de yoga et de méditation sont finement adaptés chaque jour, et très instructifs.
Chaque repas est un paradis gastronomique.
Et enfin, les lieux alentours et les excursions découverte sont d'une beauté incroyable.
C'était une semaine au paradis!
