Your Luxury Surf and Yoga retreat will be spent in a stunning contemporary-designed luxury villa with panoramic views, overlooking the Santo Isidora valley, leading all the way to Ribeira d’Llhas surf beach. One of the many local famous beaches and surf spots in the area and part of the World Surfing Reserve. The villa is located in rural Santo Isidoro, overlooking the green valley and picturesque village, on the west coast of Portugal, considered the surfing capital of Europe, due to its exceptional coastline, just minutes away.
This luxurious villa is very spacious inside and out with 2 courtyards, a garden, outdoor dining and BBQ area and 2 pools, to relax in after a surf.
You'll be prepared healthy breakfasts, nourishing lunches and delicious dinners daily by our local private chef in our stylish indoor or outdoor dining areas with stunning panoramic views of the valley.
We are just a 40mins drive from Lisbon and the airport. As well as 20 mins from Ericeira, a local traditional Portuguese fishing village with a history dating all the way back to the 12th century. It has plenty of restaurants, shops and cafes and is full of charm. A little further is the beautiful Portuguese town of Sintra, well worth a visit on your day off, to soak up the local culture, visit historic castles and more!
Spend your free time as you choose, relax by the pool, or explore the surrounding area, take a hike, or go on a stand up paddle boarding adventure. As well as enjoy a wine tasting experience, exploring the local vineyards and delicious Portuguese wine.
I had the most incredible yoga and surf retreat with Wild & Free Adventures! I came as an intermediate yogi and a complete beginner at surfing and was challenged and supported in both. Thanks for a beautiful experience, can't wait to join you both again soon. - Aisha

I am a solo traveller, do you get many solo travellers?Yes, in fact, most of our guests are solo travellers… Those that come back and join us on a retreat tend to come back with someone they met on a previous retreat/adventure and we get a lot of repeat customers who welcome you into the Wild & Free gang and love to share their first retreat experiences with you.
What are the arrival and departure times? Can I drop my bags off early?This varies from venue to venue, but typically arrival is between 5-6 pm and departure at 9 am. During coronavirus, we are unable to take early arrivals and bag drop-offs, and the departure time is to be adhered to, as we need to allow and respect the time needed for the wonderful cleaning team to get in and make all venues covid safe.
I do not have my own transport. Can I get to you by Public Transport?All our retreats and adventures are in accessible locations and can be reached by public transport. So, get in touch about the retreat or adventure you are looking to attend, and we can help you with this! If you would like to share a taxi with someone from a train station, in most cases there are usually a couple of people using public transport, so we can connect you to make those arrangements together and share costs.

Instead of a full payment, book your retreat or adventure with a 30% deposit; the remaining payment can either be paid in full 3 months prior to the retreat OR split the payment over monthly instalments (interest-free, no extra charges), making it super affordable.

Could I extend my stay if I wanted to?We often have guests ask this question and if you contact us in enough time this can likely be arranged. All our retreats and adventures are in sought-after locations and often are fully booked way in advance. However we have been able to accommodate previous guests who’ve asked this and even if we couldn't accommodate you at the same venue, there might be some suggestions we could offer you nearby, so contact us at email@example.com
How big are your groups?It varies from retreat to retreat but on average 8-12 people. Wild & Free Adventures are all about small groups as we feel it enhances the experience and you get to know each other, we can spend time getting to know you all and it creates a much more comfortable and relaxed experience.
If I have any dietary requirements or allergies, can these be catered for?Our chefs can cater for all dietary requirements and we pride ourselves on this! We ask everyone for any dietary requirements upon booking and check again the week leading up to the retreat and things change! We even ask what your milk preferences are. It is important to us that you feel fully catered for and this is the beauty of having a private chef on our retreats!
