Come celebrate summer with us, stay at the magical Casa Paço D’ilhas, in Ericeira, a charming fisherman’s village also known as one of the best surf spots in Europe. We’ve put together a retreat combining the things we love the most. You’re invited to a place that feels like home, to practice yoga, learn how to surf and nourish yourself with healthy food prepared with love. A retreat where you can truly disconnect from your daily life and to do lists, be surrounded by beautiful nature, make new friends and have plenty of time to just relax and be.
Our retreat is held at a place very dear to our hearts, Casa Paço D’ilhas – a traditional heritage-style (est. 1869) guest house with all the modern amenities you can wish for. It’s located on a hilltop, overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira on one side, and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro on the other side. Just a 10 min walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas. In the main building there’s a dining area, open fire place, kitchen and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Cabana Jardim and Casa Azores are just a few names of the very unique and charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’ilhas. Imagine uneven wooden and stone floors, antique beds and chairs and other vintage details – this is a place full of soul and history. We guarantee love at first sight.
Enjoy a healthy yummy breakfast buffet with smoothie bowls, juices and fresh fruit in season, local bread and cheese, coffee and tea.
In the evening a nourishing vegetarian dinner is served, inspired by what’s in season and our travels around the world – we promise to make your taste buds dance!
