Head to the pretty town of Cascais in Portugal for a 5 day health and yoga retreat. Whilst here you will learn how to implement a healthy lifestyle with enjoyable talks and raw food workshops.
A welcome meeting and talk will be given on the benefits of keeping a healthy lifestyle with regular cleanses, on arrival. Healthy drinks and nibbles will be available. This introduction will outline the rest of the retreat and give information on the recommendations for food and practices throughout the following days.
Each day will begin with a super healthy wake up drink, yoga will be offered in the park and then following, breakfast will be prepared and explained. The breakfast will always be Raw Vegan including super foods and local organic produce wherever possible.
Local healthful activities for the day will be recommended and taken at each guests discretion, some of which include horse back riding, cycling, water sports, massage, beautiful walks and local tours or trips further afield.
Another meal will be prepared for the day and as this is another Raw Vegan meal which can be eaten as lunch or dinner depending on the guest’s activities for the day. This meal will be explained in the morning also. The remaining food for the day is up to the guest! There will be guidelines on things to include and avoid when buying food in the supermarket to prepare for yourself or what to ask in local restaurants when choosing a healthy option. This will give guests a more integrated experience and help to allow healthy habits to be formed and practiced when returning to their day-to-day lives.
An introduction to meditation workshop will be given at the start of the week and two more group meditations will be offered as well as instructions for a daily self-practice.

“This was my third stay in this wonderful place, very clean and tidy, convenient beds and spacious kitchen and dinning areas. Welcoming staff and lots of information provided almost for any kind of guests – from leisure holiday stays to sports events and business meetings. Enjoying conversations in dining room, outdoor activities, bikes for rent and many other things offered. Though I come to Cascais for participating in sailing events this place I enjoy staying most of all, because of its hosts, atmosphere and excellent location, comfort and value.”
“A beautiful guesthouse! Airy, light and cozy atmosphere, feels like home. People running the place are fantastic, very helpful, creative and fun, organising all sorts of activities like photo walks or horseback riding. The place is very clean and looked after. I will be coming back and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a great, easy and fun time in Cascais.”

“Had a great time at the hostel and in Cascajs. Hostel is very close to the centre, but in silent area (very good location). Very nice park just in 2 minutes walk. Also very beautiful marina. Nice bicycle path along the ocean to the Guinco, and Boca de Inferno. And a lot of activities- I chose hiking to Peninha and Cabo de Roca, but if I had more time I would find a lot of things to do! The staff are very friendly and gave me a lot of information about the area. Nice atmosphere in the hostel!”
“We just came back from our holiday in Cascais. Very friendly and helpful hosts, cosy and comfortable hostel with a character, best location in the centre of old part of the town. Atmosphere in this hostel is so great that you feel as if you are visiting your good friends. Breakfast on the terrace and occasional dinners together as well as different activities (hiking and cycling trips, horse riding, yoga lessons and classes) are great opportunity to speak and meet people from other places. Hostel is situated on quiet small street in a heart of Cascais within a walking distance from Cascais bus and train station, local shops and restaurants and also Cascais Marina. Highly recommended place to stay.”
