Set in the small fishing town of Olhao in Portugal, our home for five nights, Casa Fuzetta, has been recently refurbished to not only highlight the charm of the area, but to bring a little slice of luxury into your stay. Every single room, though they are different, is absolutely stunning. This whole house is done to the highest standard, it really is pure luxury. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and the beds are made up with white company sheets. Yoga will take place on the roof where there is a yoga deck, and where there is also the rooftop swimming pool which has a salt filtration system keeping chemicals to a minimum. The rooftop area will allow us the perfect space to practice and even has the ability to be shaded when needed. There is also a meditation room for us. Mats, blocks, bolsters are conveniently supplied. Plus 2 treatment rooms providing private allocated space for massage and facials. The house has plenty of different areas inside and outside to make yourself at home and is a truly magical place for all who stay there.
We will have twice daily yoga practices, daily meditations, brunches, workshops, a trip to the local islands, and dinners under the stars. Plus space for lots of relaxing under the sun, (or in the shade if you prefer) next to the roof top pool. There will be opportunity to work with me for private one to one sessions if desired. During the retreat there will be a very special evening of YIN yoga with live classical piano music - there is a baby grand piano in the house. I will be bringing a therapist with us and she will be able to offer a variety of alternative therapies in your free time - massage, facials, reflexology.
Olhao is an ancient fishing town in the eastern Algarve (southern Portugal), which for various reasons has escaped over-development and mass tourism. The old town is a warren of narrow cobbled streets, full of hidden nooks and beautiful old features. Olhão is full of light and magic. The town is full of artists. There are so many stunning properties in the neighbourhood of Olhão’s old town, taking a stroll around the cobbled streets is a joy. The sea is a short walk from the house. On the waterfront there are fantastic food markets, ferry and river taxis ready to whisk you off (if you desire) to Ria Formosa Lagoon which is a designated Natural Park. You can plan a trip over to one of the beautiful islands off the coast of Olhão, head to the beach and have a swim in the sea.
Free time – This is time for you to explore and do what your heart desires. The area is absolutely stunning, and there will be many opportunities for us to venture out as a group or for you to go and explore alone. Throughout the retreat I will be running 2 yoga workshops in the ‘free time’ plus one afternoon I will arrange an optional trip to one of the amazing islands, where you can relax and swim in the sea. On the Saturday, the local market is highly recommended. There are many eateries around if you fancy eating out for lunch or dinner. We will be having at least one of our dinners out in a local restaurant. You all have a massage included as part of your stay, so these will be booked into your free time too.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED:
Flights - One of the beauties of the house (and what I searched for when booking a retreat) is how easy it is to get to, at least from within Europe - Less than 15 minutes from Faro airport, which is well served by airlines across the UK and Europe, often with return flights from London for under £100 (and less than 2.5hrs flying time). Book flights up early! Transfers to and from airport (The retreat is about 15 minutes from Faro airport in the car, I will hook you up with other yogis to share a taxi) Ferry/sea taxi when going to the islands. The ferry is around €5 each way.
Private room, double bed ensuite (these are limited) £1695 per person - if you do not want to share, early booking advised!
