During this retreat, connect with the ocean by the surf. Slide away on your board, taste the salt water and see the sun sparkling on the clear blue sea. Catch some waves and feel the pleasure of riding them. 4elements retreat will take you to see the spot where the biggest waves in the world break (Nazaré) and you will learn a bit more about surf in general. To balance out the Adrenalin from your surf experiences, yoga will be the perfect cure. A wine tasting and delicious vegetarian food complete this retreat.
The house has five double rooms with private bathrooms on the first floor. Rooms can have single or double occupancy. Towels, bedsheets, and blankets are included. Common rooms like kitchen, dining and living room, yoga studio, and a shared bathroom are located on the ground floor.
The outside area extends over more than 2500 meter square feet and hosts our farm and garden for our guests to enjoy. If you come as a group (minimum five, maximum 10 people), we can reserve the entire house for you and adapt the program of the week according to your preferences.
Note that timings for surf lessons may vary, as they are always depending on tide and conditions.

4elements retreat is located in the lovely village of Póvoa de Penafirme, about 45 mins from Lisbon Airport. Póvoa has a pharmacy, a post office, various cafés, fruit shops, a bakery and small supermarkets for everyday needs. The city of Torres Vedras is a 15 min drive away, the holiday village Santa Cruz can be reached within 15 minutes walking.
The area here offers fascinating nature with a long and empty coastline. Two beautiful beaches are just a stone's throw away from our house. We're lucky to be located in a quiet village on the Silver Coast of Portugal, while being in the middle of several popular touristic destinations like Sintra, Ericeira, Óbidos, Peniche, and Nazaré.

Since 4elements retreat has a big farm with their own fruit and vegetables, those will be the main ingredients for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. Everything that can't be produced by our hens and the farm is bought locally. We prefer short transports and local farms and shops over strictly buying everything organic since many organic products in Portugal are imported.
If you have any intolerances, allergies or dislike some ingredient or food, please let us know during your booking. Please note that an extra 25 EUR will be charged for a gluten-free diet.
