During this retreat, connect with the ocean by the surf. Slide away on your board, taste the saltwater and see the sun sparkling on the clear blue sea. Catch some waves and feel the pleasure of riding them. 4elements retreat will take you to see the spot where the biggest waves in the world break (Nazaré) and you will learn a bit more about surf in general. To balance out the Adrenalin from your surf experiences, yoga will be the perfect cure. A wine tasting and delicious vegetarian food complete this retreat.

NOTE: 4elements retreat youngest staff member Matteo was born in Nov 2020, so there will be a small child around :)

4elements retreat is located in the lovely village of Póvoa de Penafirme, about 45 mins from Lisbon Airport. Póvoa has a pharmacy, a post office, various cafés, fruit shops, a bakery and small supermarkets for everyday needs. The city of Torres Vedras is a 15 min drive away, and the holiday village Santa Cruz can be reached within 15 minutes of walking.

The area here offers fascinating nature with a long and empty coastline. Two beautiful beaches are just a stone's throw away from our house. We're lucky to be located in a quiet village on the Silver Coast of Portugal while being in the middle of several popular touristic destinations like Sintra, Ericeira, Óbidos, Peniche and Nazaré.

The venue
Our house has five double rooms with private bathrooms on the first floor. Rooms can have single or double occupancy. Towels, bedsheets, and blankets are included. Common rooms like the kitchen, dining and living room, yoga studio and a shared bathroom are located on the ground floor.

The outside area extends over more than 2500 square meters and hosts our farm and garden for our guests to enjoy. If you come as a group (minimum of five and maximum of 10 people) we can reserve the entire house for you and adapt the program of the week according to your preferences.

Food
Since we have a big farm with our own fruit and vegetables, those will be our main ingredients for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. Everything that can't be produced by our hens and the farm is bought locally. We prefer short transport and local farms and shops over strictly buying everything organic since many organic products in Portugal are imported.

If you have any intolerances, allergies or dislike some ingredient or food, please let us know during your booking. Please note that we charge an extra 25 EUR for a gluten-free diet.

If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation
