The retreat will be at the Alfamar hotel, which is a simple beach and sport hotel a few metres from a 15 kilometre beach, Praia da Falésia, which is between Albufeira and Vilamoura.

Accommodation and Food

You can still book into the teaching sessions for this retreat online. But accommodation is now non residential and must now be booked separately. You can try to book at a hotel very close by. 

The catering team try their best to provide vegan/vegetarian choices for us, and although it’s not quite like Snowdonia Mountain Lodge catering, it’s usually fine. There is a small supermarket close to the hotel if you need any other food supplies.

Feedback from the last retreat was that some participants appreciated arriving early or staying on for a night or two to make the most of the retreat teachings. This is possible, please arrange this with the accommodation team.
