The yoga teacher, the location, the people and the food were as good as it can get:) I was positively surprised of all the activities that we did during our stay and it was a very relaxing time. You don't need to take care of anything and yet it really fitted my demands!!

Plus the location was splendid and well chosen as you have a nice pool surrounded by wonderful nature and animals!

"Hele fijne plek voor yoga, relaxen en paardrijden"

Antonio en Lisa zijn fantastische en lieve hosts. Mooie plek, zeer gastvrij en delicious healthy food. Ik heb vooral genoten van het mooie weer, de rust, de paarden en andere dieren die bij het hotel staan. Een paar keer paardgereden, was ook erg leuk. Ik had erg veel geluk met de gevarieerde en internationale groep, was zeer gezellig en ontspannen. De meditatie op de berg was ook om niet te vergeten. Afsluiter was een Fado avond in de buurt, niet toeristisch maar juist authentiek met allerlei lokale zangers. Aanrader!

In February I did my first Yoga Retreat ever and I am so happy that I chose Wide Ocean Retreat for it! It was an incredible experience, we did yoga twice a day with the amazing Antonio who tried to challenge us in every class, some hiking and meditation at the top of a mountain, stand up paddle in the Mira river and a really interesting cooking class with the super-cook Francisco, who was in charge of making our tummy happy and cooked the most tasty veggie-dishes during the retreat! Also a special mention to our beloved Tiago, with whom we enjoyed a creative workshop in the nature and gave us the most relaxing Ayurveda massages! What else can you ask for? I highly recommend Wide Ocean Retreat to anyone wanting to spend a week in a beautiful scenery surrounded by incredible people!!

Well that was quite a wee holiday. Back from a much needed week’s winter retreat in Portugal... Fed veggie food porn and nightly port by a passionate Portuguese chef with crack of dawn yoga sessions from a gorgeous hearted yogi called Antonio bending me into contortions alongside super fit companions putting me to shame...all in a glorious studio dreamily situated next to horse stables where I then got to trot around on a majestic beast called Sultan (a horse) before beach walks with amazing multi-lingual feisty fun women who then hiked up a mountain with me for sunset meditation having already partaken in poolside creative nature things all topped off with a midnight full moon classical guitar intimate concert and a couple of heavenly Ayurveda massages - courtesy of a man called Jesus...

I know. I may need a holiday to recover. I'd definitely go back there in a flash though. Thank you @WideOceanRetreat - for the photos and the joyous adventure.

The highlight of the Yoga Retreat I did in February was definitely the climb to the mountain. The sunset meditation we then did was breathtaking- a moment I will never forget in my life. Everything was topped with incredibly delicious food from Francisco the cook - he definitely spoiled our taste buds!;)

Magic place close to nature, quite, calm, with great comfort. Antonio is a great yoga teacher and manages different levels in class so everyone is challenged to improve.  One of the best retreats I have ever had.

My sister and I stayed at the retreat for three days and it was such an incredible experience. The facilities were very nice, always clean, and had everything we could have possibly needed. The food was so fresh and delicious! We had the chance to surf and ride horses for the first time with the help of some great teachers and we had so much fun! We also trekked part of Rota Vincentina and the views were breathtaking! The yoga studio is so beautiful, it's so quiet and it felt surreal to hear the peaceful nature sounds that surround you as you practice. Antonio made the yoga classes extremely relaxing but still a nice challenge for us, a great balance. We did so much in only three days and we loved all the new experiences. I would highly recommend staying with Antonio, it was really amazing!
