Shared twin and double rooms are available, all with en-suite and Wi-Fi. Private rooms are available on request for an additional fees. The villa is outstanding with a modern interior design, well-appointed and spacious rooms, a large (25 meters) heated swimming pool, a beautiful garden with hammocks and nooks for relaxing in, and three sea-view terraces.

The kitchen is well-equipped and there's even a separate work and study space for you to use (because hey, sometimes you have to bring a bit of reality with you). The lounge is great for hanging out in, and there's even a fireplace if you want to really cozy up.


Your enjoyment is To the Sea Retreat's priority. If you wish to change the surf and yoga schedule you may do so at no extra cost, for example, switching the early morning yoga practice for a surf session (start at 06:00 for early morning surfs). This is your holiday. To the Sea Retreat wants you to feel totally at home, and go to great pains to ensure your every whim is taken care of.

To the Sea Retreat is available 24 hours a day to guide you around the local area, give you the best tips for dining options, and cater to your needs. The hope is that you leave this little piece of paradise happier, healthier, and become the part of a new family.

Jodie Roberts
Jodie discovered yoga whilst living in Thailand, deepened her practice with surfing in Byron Bay, Australia, became a yoga instructor in the home of yoga, Rishikesh, India, and it all came together in Bali. She is also a passionate marine conservationist. Studying under the masters of Yogic Science gave her a deep understanding of physiology and it means her classes are technically exact, whilst embodying the essence of yoga. She gives her students personal attention and adjustments, to ensure you go deep into your practice without causing any injury, and will always offer variations on poses.
Anna is the co-founder of To the Sea Retreat, together with Jodie. Surfing is her passion and she's happiest when she's on the waves or cheering you on to your first ride!


This retreat will be held in the stunning Algarve in Southern Portugal, with an average of 300 sunny days a year, and a unique contrast between the golden coastline with world class beaches, and the beautiful rural countryside with thousands of species of flora and fauna. It is located by a charming historic fishing village, with cobbled streets, whitewashed buildings, and many dining options.

The surrounding countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with dramatic cliffs and hidden sandy coves for you to explore, by bike, foot, car or horseback. Inland, you will find vineyards, old castles, and much more.
