yoga meditation travel retreat

Portugal’s Paradise

November 1 – 6, 2023




The Algarve is one of the few areas in Europe to enjoy 300 days of sunshine per year! Olhão in the Sandalgarve is best known for its unusual architecture. Even today, the city lives mainly from fishing. You will be charmed by its cobbled streets, colorful tiles, the (unexpectedly) vibrant art scene and family-run restaurants. Situated very close to other interesting islands, it is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park and the idyllic beaches of the Barrier Islands. The beautiful lagoon island beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol can be reached by regular ferry services. You will have plenty of time to get out of Casa to explore some of these during our retreat. Take your comfy sandals with you!

Luxury Accommodations:
We have our own exceptional private home in the heart of the authentic fishing town of Olhão, in the unspoilt eastern Algarve. See why Travel & Leisure has listed Casa Fuzetta in their top 10 best yoga retreats worldwide for two years in a row. Forbes gives it a glowing review. And Elle listed it as one of the best yoga retreats around Europe.  Just imagine yourself relaxing by the stunning rooftop pool or taking a break in the peaceful meditation room, with sunshine gently coming through colored glass ceiling windows…

Travel Suggestions:
Getting to us couldn’t be easier. We are within a 15/20 minute drive from Faro International Airport (FAO), which is connected to most major European airports by flights averaging three hours. British Airways or TAP Air Portugal offer daily direct flights from London, Paris, Frankfurt, and Madrid to Faro. If traveling from the USA it may be nice to spend a few days before or after our retreat in a neighboring country.  Once at the house, you will be in the heart of the old town where family-run local restaurants, the spectacular waterfront market and boats out to the islands are all within easy walking distance.

Each room has an ensuite private bathroom, modern walk-in shower, heated flooring, organic bath products, 100% cotton luxury linens and bath towels, artwork by local artists
