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.

"Holistic nutrition for body and soul"
Twice per day yoga was great to do, the meals were very delicious, healthy and surprising, the trips we did in the area were very nice and divers and Ali and Pedro are two authentic, generous and easy going people. Very comfortable company!! No doubts to return once for another retreat there.

Ali und Pedro sind wunderbare Menschen; total freundlich und offen, sehr bemüht das es einem an nichts fehlt, lustig und einfach perfekt: das Essen, die Unternehmungen, der Strand mit dem Meer, das Surfen und das vegetarische Essen; jeden Tag was anderes mit frischem Gemüse aus dem eigenen Garten...die Yogastunde konnte von Anfänger bis fortgeschrittener jeder bestreiten und es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht, besser geht es einfach nicht...

It was a great experience to spend a week with Ali and Pedro. The daily yoga lessons were allways an enjoyment, Pedro knew exactly when we were on the top and when he should choose a bit lighter exercises for us.
We had every day an attractive program to discover the places around our location and the workshops were good planned to our needs.
Ali is a great cook, all of her meals were tasty and it was nice to know that almost all products came fresh from the garden.
The accomodation is also nice, the bed is hight comfort and in the night you hear the waves of the ocean.

"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!
