The Algarve retreat gave me the best gift – to finally believe in myself. I enjoyed walking on the beach every morning to watch the sunrise – to be so close to the sea was wonderful. I loved working with the Dru teachers and appreciated the mentoring sessions – I felt I let go of a lot of personal issues. Thank you! - Olga Keur, The Netherlands



The Algarve retreat touched me deeply, from the inspiring sessions, yoga, meditation, walks and the wonderful friends I made. I felt connected to a new beginning and a clear path opened up to follow through this year and beyond. - Maggie Sanderson, The Netherlands

The retreat I attended was excellent, with lots of well-led yoga practise and helpful ideas - David John, UK

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. Accommodation to be booked separately, details available from 1st August 2018. Approximately 35 euros per night half board.

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.
