About:

2 hours south of Lisbon, the Alentejo Coast is known for its quiet beaches, verdant hills, and Rota Vicentina, a sprawling 200-mile network of walking paths. Our retreat will be held at Herdade da Matinha, a rural hotel in Alentejo nestled in one of the most beautiful, peaceful regions of Portugal.

Other Activities:

Beach, Pool, Surfing, Biking, Bird-watching, Cooking lessons, Horseback Riding, Relaxing

Local Food:

You can order lunch and dinner at the hotel or visit local fishing towns to eat. Orange trees are everywhere on the property and the orange juice is out of this world. Delicious Alentejo bread from the local bakery, which still operates in the old traditional open fire ovens, is also a daily treat.

Getting There:

Airfare not includedbook flights to Lisbon, Portugal (LIS-Humberto Delgado). A Non-Refundable Deposit of $500 holds your space. 

We suggest you spend 2 to 3 nights in Lisbon or traveling to explore the city and acclimate to the time change. Rent a car (we can coordinate groups to share a car) at the airport and drive 2 hours south to Alentejo. We strongly suggest you to book a car in advance. You can rent a car at the airport (rentalcars.com).
