"Serene Vacation"

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Buddha Retreat. It was located in the most serene Portuguese countryside, surround by beautiful hills where you could relax and enjoy the outdoors. The yoga instructor was amazing at getting us into deep stretches. The surfing was challenging but very fun. The food was vegetarian heaven! We did have fish one night and it did not disappoint! It was such a pleasure meeting everyone who was also at the retreat with us. Great memories. Would definitely recommend.

"Book it now!!!!"

Loved the food, great and fun yoga (learnt a lot and I think I left taller...), surfing was challenging but super fun, property itself was amazing - surrounded by lots of nature, great views and a super pool. Our yoga instructor and surfing instructor were so lovely and really made the experience. It was also easy to get there from Lisbon on the bus (I get lost a lot and didn’t get lost at all!!) Left feeling relaxed, and would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a quick break that’s convenient and will make you feel like you’ve had a month off not a week!

Ik vond de omgeving erg mooi en rustgevend. Alles was goed geregeld en de sfeer was ontspannen. De lessen waren leuk en uitdagend. Ik vond het fijn om meer kennis te krijgen en te oefenen met hoe je correct in een houding staat. Het eten was gevarieerd en erg lekker!

"Geweldig yogaretreat"

De ambiance: aan de rand van een erg leuk dorp de tuinen en uiteraard de spectaculaire yoga en het eten was erg goed


from Netherlands, June 2017


de locatie is prachtig; rust en uitzicht. Alles kan, niets moet. Huiselijke sfeer.Met veel aandacht wordt het eten bereid: drie fantastische maaltijden per dag en tussendoor yoga, surfen, wandelen of met een boekje aan het zwembad.

"Wonderful retreat"

We had a wonderful time at Buddha Retreats. The house is perfectly located with beautiful surroundings, a nice yoga studio and only a 20 minutes drive from the beach. The moment you arrive you already feel relaxed and the schedule is perfectly balanced. We will definitely come back! Thanks a lot for everything!

I'm sitting in the airport for my flight back to home and feeling a little bit sad. I really enjoyed the Buddha retreat. So nice people, so nice teachers... everything was perfect and very good organised. Food was soooo amazing and healthy. Many thanks to Stephan and his team. I really recommand the Buddha retreat. It was just to short. I would prefere at least a 8 days program. Stephan, Red and Uwe enjoy the amazing surf season. #stilltryingtositonmyblog #openyourcheastsweety #wherearethe20millions #needaspiderhunter #feelingsofreshandhappy #paddelpaddelpaddel #willcomeback

It's an excellent place for a retreat. Very friendly staff and travelers, clean rooms, very good and healthy (vegetarian) food and much more assets. It was a good mix of Surf and Yoga which resulted to relax in a decent way.

This place was amazing. It is located in a breathtakingly beautiful and serene part of the Portuguese countryside. The house is very bohemian-luxury. The food was delicious, I probably over-ate the whole week, because of how good every meal was. The whole staff was so kind, relaxed, and cool. Sitting by the pool reading, laying out, or doing some yoga was unbeatable. The daily yoga classes left me feeling limber and energized. Fritz was great at challenging the more advanced people, but also tended to the needs of the beginners. Roy, the surf instructor, was an unforgettable character that had everyone surfing like a pro (well, sort of) by the end of the week. The retreat was a great value, had a wonderful atmosphere, and was so relaxing and rejuvenating. My only feedback: work on clearing out some of the standing water in the old fountains. I loved it, and can't wait to come back!
