The retreat will take place at Quinta Camarena, a beautiful, rustic-chic countryside hotel, surrounded by nature. There are space and plenty of spots to relax, hike, chill, read, meditate, and drink wine. The yoga classes will be done in a big open-air shala surrounded by nature. A villa, a casita, a country loft, or private rooms. Each house has a private entrance, living room, and equipped kitchenette. All spaces were carefully curated based on sustainable principles using local materials. For your comfort and enjoyment, Quinta Camarena wants to make you feel at home.

The decor of each house was meticulously curated by the hosts with objects from their own art collection, family pieces, antiques, and furniture made in local recycled objects made following the principles of sustainability and circular economy. You will also find first-quality linens in the beds and local, bio, artisanal soaps. The guest houses are located by the garden and pool. The outdoor space is an open invitation to bond with your group in comfort and space. You can stay in a single or shared bedroom in the main villa (all bedrooms have a private bathroom) or in a one-bedroom house for single or shared occupancy.

Program

Get out of the city, explore a new setting, and have some really, really good fitness classes in a few unexpected open-air spots. There is also hiking and the best wild beaches of Alentejo. Get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. This kind of retreat is for people that love to exercise and want to spend a few days focusing on it while exploring nature, enjoying the delicious food and wine, and meeting like-minded people. The only rule is not to take yourself too seriously.

Quinta Camarena is here to work out but mostly to have fun. Join a cool group of people for some serious daily workouts. You are going to focus on improving your endurance, your resistance, and overall fitness performance. There are two workout sessions on the two middle days. You will exercise in different scenarios always having nature as a backdrop. They will challenge you through cardio, strength, and toning exercises always followed by good stretching.

Classes will accommodate all levels. The goal is to get you healthier, stronger, energized, and a bit more toned but that is just a part of this program. They will show you the wonder of this amazing region of Alentejo and you will explore the beaches, the historical towns, and the arts and crafts. Healthy and delicious food will be a big part of this trip. Same for wine, because health is also about enjoying the good things of life in moderation.

Location

The retreat will take place in Cercal do Alentejo, Alentejo, Portugal. Located in the protected area of Costa Vicentina, in the southwest of Portugal, Quinta Camarena is ideally situated among the countryside and the beach. The picturesque town of Cercal is just a short walk from Costa Vicentina and will make you feel as though you went back in time, giving you a true sense of the Alentejo way of life. The region is full of nature, history, interesting architecture, and local artisans.

The famous Rota Vicentina, a long hiking path spanning nearly 400 kilometers along with one of the most beautifully preserved coastal areas of Europe, passes directly in front of the property. This will lead you through forest tracks to towns and villages with centuries of history. Within a 15-minute drive, you can reach numerous and very diverse wild beaches, and a few of them are a real surfer's paradise.
