If you are looking for a holiday focused on surfing, stand up paddling, yoga, great food, and nice people then this is the holiday for you.

This retreat goes from 7th July – 25th August (last 2 weeks are just for girls) and it is entirely up to you if you want to stay one or more weeks. Every week we have three days of surfing, two days of SUP and five evenings of yoga. You participate as much as you want.

Breakfast is included every day, lunch is served on the beach when we go surfing (not SUP) and two evenings pr. week, Rachel comes by and serves delicious dinners at The Mansions. The other evenings we usually go out together in various restaurants (great ones!).

Hostesses during these weeks are Christina and Anna who will make sure that everyone has a great time.

Lagos in the Algarve is an amazing town. Here you will find everything you could want from an active holiday, such as amazing surf spots, beautiful beaches, great yoga shala, excellent restaurants, a great place to stay, and of course the great weather and happy people. Here you will find everything you want regardless if you are looking for relaxation or if you want to have fun in the evenings.

Accomodations

The Mansions

We simply couldn't find a better place to stay in Lagos. The Mansions are located on one of the small narrow streets in the old part of town. From here you have everything at your fingertips. The property consists of two apartments with two rooms each and two external rooms (12 beds in total). All of this is connected by a small courtyard where we eat breakfast, relax and have fun. All rooms are double rooms of which three have twin beds and three have doublebeds. In the ground floor of each apartment there is a fully equipped kitchen.

Food & drink

Daily breakfast is included in the price and lunch is included with all surf-trips (not SUP). That means that lunch is included on sundays, mondays and tuesdays. Our great friend, the chef Rachel comes by two evenings pr. week and cooks dinner for all of us in the Mansions - including free home made sangria. All other evenings, everyone who wants to, goes together to specific great restaurants. Expect that an evening meal incl. drinks cost around 20-25 euro. It is no problem if you are a vegan, vegetarian or have any other dietary preference.

Accommodation

The Mansions is located smack in the middle of the old part of Lagos - within the old city walls. That means that restaurants, bars, shops ect. are literally located 50m from where you will be staying. Four of the six rooms have ensuite bathrooms and the last two rooms share one bathroom/toilet. If it is important for you to have your own bathroom then you select it on the booking form. If rooms with private bathroom happen to be sold out for your chosen week, we will contact you.

Three of the rooms have twin beds and and three rooms have double-beds. In the booking form  you can select which type of room you prefer. If your choice is not available, we will contact you. Notice that the double-beds are big, so two friends will not have any problem sleeping next to one another.

Yoga

Yoga is taught by Anna who primarily teaches Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga.

Stand Up Paddle

There will be two days of Stand Up Paddling. The first tour starts around 9 am and takes you to the grottos around Lagos. The other tour takes place in rivers and canals in the Algarve.

Surfing

There are three days of surfing every week. The tours start at 9 am and you can expect to be back in Lagos around 5 pm. The days all start with a drive to the west coast (probably), warm-up, and two hours of tuition. After lunch and some relaxation, you get two more hours tuition before we return to Lagos.
