Welcome to Portugal Yurt Retreat - Sustainable Yurt Holidays and Yoga Retreats

yoga holidays


Unfortunately our home and business has just been completely destroyed by the fire on Sunday October 15. In about an hour fire raged through, ravaging everything in it's path. The girls and I had managed to leave in time, and Nuno tried to stay on a little until he had to run away. Almost everything we have built over the past 10 years has been destroyed.

We have lost three yurts, all fully set up and equipped for guests and ourselves. Three kitchens, three fridges, ovens, bathrooms. All the infrastructure of pipes, water tanks, electric cables and solar system. Even our half finished house is almost back to the stage it was at as a complete ruin.

On top of this we have of course lost all our personal possessions, clothing and our children's toys and clothing, tramoline, play area, swimming pool etc. The list is too long.

Our plan at this point is to start again, rebuild and continue offering our special yoga retreats and well being holidays. We have been receiving amazing support from friends and family, which is keeping us strong. We have a wonderful community of teachers and friends who have offered assistance and help. We will start next week with the clean up and clear out of all the destruction. We will then start to move forward with regenerating the land, rebuilding yurts and other accommodation for our guests, and rebuilding, and completing our house for our family. We can only do this with help and support. If you feel you can add a donation of any size to our fund it will be massively appreciated and an enormous help.

We live here in a small community with our children, Elsie who is 8 and Myra, 3 and Aalia 1. We welcome children and families to come and stay. and make our property as child friendly and safe as it can be. We feel it is a wonderful environment for children to explore. We have a play area including a trampoline, several swings and a small above ground swimming pool. children

We have a large vegetable garden that gives us most of our vegetables throughout the year, especially through the summer months. As much as possible we cook using fresh, organic vegetables from the garden. We can sell baskets of vegetables to guests.

"On arrival I stepped out of the car and was struck by the calm silence and simplicity of the land. It was my first time seeing olive trees and tasting homemade olives! The garden was a delight - the vegie food was so tasty and nourishing, I felt quickly revitalized." Suzanne Liska - Dance artist & teacher. Toronto, Canada
