Portugal Sept 16 - 20, 2020

Tranquil Paradise


First thing in the morning (8 am) we will meet and practice a mobilising, energising flow yoga. Afterwards, a carefully customised and delicious breakfast will be served in the property's breakfast room, overlooking the outdoor swimming pool. In the afternoons, we will meet again (5.30pm) for a gentle stretch and relax session. All yoga includes breathing techniques, and guided or silent meditation as well as carefully instructed geometric alignment. You will not be required to wear a mask during sessions and Gillian will use her trademark crystal clear cueing to help you understand the poses. You will be required to bring your own yoga mat.


Throughout your stay, if you wish to explore the area, fear not, dear yogi :) Teima will provide you with a list of the best places to visit nearby such as, Brejão, Odeceixe or Zambujeira do Mar, where the views are spectacular and food is ridiculously fresh and extremely delicious. The wild and secluded beaches of the Atlantic are Carvalhal, Machados and Amália, all approximately 5 km from the property. Odemira is a 23-minute drive away, while Odeceixe is 10 km from the unit.


TEIMA, Alentejo SW is a 90-minute drive from Faro International Airport and has been awarded the stamp of "Clean and Safe" from the Portuguese board of Tourism.


Lap Pool

This elegant infinity pool is surrounded by a wooden deck and has views into the orchard and pine forest. Amid the natural silence you can take a dip to cool off, swim laps at leasure or lounge in this oasis and read your favourite book. 

Natural Lake

There's a boat waiting for you, a duck house, fish and tortoises. Swim, paddle, lounge...and enjoy the smells and sounds. Here you'll find the most comfortable hanging chairs where you can sit, relax and watch baby ducks follow their family, swallows come to bathe and butterflies add to that magic feeling.
