The house you will stay at is a Portuguese villa with a large garden and a terrace with ocean view, and beyond the hills, you can find the Palácio Nacional de Mafra.

Moka offers double rooms, twin rooms, and shared rooms (maximum four people) with different common bathrooms, bed linen, and towels are provided at your arrival. There is a large dining-room with a fully equipped kitchen for guests and everyone has his own space for food and drink in the fridge and in the pantry.

Yoga lessons are held in the shala, which can be also free used as the wave skate ramp. In the large courtyard located in the middle of the house, you can chat with people, dining outdoor, and enjoy the open air cinema in Portuguese warm evenings! But if you are searching for of a quiet place, you’ll always find a spot under a fruit tree in the lovely garden.

This package includes six yoga classes, five surf lessons, and one deep tissue massage. The daily timetable will be flexible, depending on the weather and ocean conditions in order to allow the guests to enjoy always the best waves during the surf lesson. At the surf school, you will find qualified instructors to guide you step by step and to provide you with all of the necessary equipment.

Then you can choose everyday one of the two yoga lessons scheduled in the shala: the one in the morning, at 09:00, will be dynamic and energizing, based on a mix of Rocket and Vinyasa flow yoga, while the one in the afternoon, at 18:00, will be slow and focused on deep stretch, based on a mix of slow flow and Yin yoga.

  • Dorotea Zafferani

    Dorotea is a certified RYT 400 Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket yoga teacher and her style is strongly influenced by her background in ballet and contemporary dance. In her classes, Dorotea always encourages her students to listen and to bring stillness in their body and mind. At the same time, she never forgets the need for students to play, fall, and step out of their comfort zone. Dorotea's classes are strong, dynamic, energetic, and always incorporate a strong breathing technique. Expect to sweat, play, invert, and enjoy a long savasana at the end!

Moka is on the top of the hill just outside Ericeira, an old fishermen village featuring typical light-blue and white houses facing the ocean. Restaurants and night clubs are increasingly crowded by tourists every year. You can enjoy the fresh fish that arrives daily at the little harbor as well as the warm welcoming of the locals.

Getting around from the house is very easy: daily transfer to and from beach and Ericeira is included in your pack! Furthermore, you can use the bikes for free, take the bus which stops just a few steps from the house, rent a scooter, or take a stroll and reach the two nearby beaches through beautiful trail.

Ericeira is also a perfect starting point for discovering the many attractions of the Estremadura region; not far from the famous old village of Sintra, one of the most popular historical well-known locations in Portugal and right above the Sintra and Cascais Natural Park, a charming location for those who love nature.

Lisbon is easily reached either by car or by bus (around 40 minutes ride).

As the staff is Italian, food is always in their mind and plays a central role in their day! Among other things, you’ll taste pizza, pasta fresca, mouth-watering fish recipes and, of course, moka coffee! During your stay you will receive a tasty and healthy breakfast every day and two delicious dinners.

The Sintra and Cascais Natural Park is just around the corner. Moka offers trekking tours within the territory of the park during which you’ll deeply immerse yourself in this wonderful and wild Portuguese area. From the cliffs, you’ll admire unique landscapes, recharge your mind, and feel the ocean in all its power.

You will enjoy one complimentary 60-minute session of deep tissue massage. Dorotea is a qualified Raynor technique massage therapist, a deep tissue holistic technique focused on finding and releasing tension. Its origins are in Ayurvedic massage, Chinese medicine, Lomi Lomi, reflexology, Shiatsu, and yoga breath work combined with deep tissue body work to the release of prana (or chi).

The primary goal of Raynor naturopathic massage is to relieve someone from residual tension, muscle tightness (in an area of the body when the body is at rest), and return the body to a natural state of relaxation. With this technique, it is believed that each massage should not be performed in a routine manner, since every person is different and must be addressed with a specific treatment depending on their needs.

This is the reason why for Dorotea it is important to get know the person first in order to understand their needs and work together towards bringing the body to his natural state of relaxation.
