      About this trip

      Modern life has us on the go, attached to technology and focused externally. At the same time, we’re often isolated from others and disconnected from ourselves. Together let’s retreat in a beautiful setting, practice daily yoga, slow down and remember who we are and what’s important. 


      If you have family or friends whom you’ve longed to reconnect or feel more intimate with, this retreat is for you and them. Connect, restore and recalibrate with daily yoga, group games, inspiring readings, savory and fresh local cuisine, rejuvenating massages, bike rides, hiking, boat rides to unspoiled beaches, and seaside reflection. You will feel rejuvenated and touched by the gentle culture of Portugal and by remembering how enriching being together with old and new friends can truly be.


      Situated in the southernmost region of Portugal known as the Algarve, this retreat oasis has been named one of the top 10 retreat locations in the world three times by Travel & Leisure and recently by Conde Nast’s Traveller magazine as “Best Yoga Retreats in the World”. Located in the heart of Olhão’s old town, the fabulous markets and a wide selection of family run restaurants are within easy walking distance of the house – as are the ferries and taxis to the outlying islands. This grand casa boasts 12 beautifully designed rooms blending old world Moorish flare with modern amenities. It’s the perfect place to retreat and replenish.

      What are the ingredients for a magical yoga retreat? A great venue. Delicious healthy food. Wonderful people. Generous experienced teaching customized to each student’s needs and abilities. This is what we had, and more, at the Oliveto Estate in Civitanova Mache, Italy, in June, 2023. The retreat organized and led by Nikki Estrada was my fourth in France or Italy and soared above the rest. The two villas that make up the venue were easily comparable to a Four Seasons in terms of design, comfort, cleanliness and amenities. The rooms were large and comfortable. The public spaces offered many places to get away to relax both indoors and around the two large swimming pools or on the many terraces or decks. Two gyms provided exercise equipment and the spa offered steam, sauna and jacuzzi. For the second year Nikki retained a marvelous chef from Scotland who cooked amazing meals that were definitely 5 star. The group ranging in age from 24 to 75 coalesced within the first hour and clearly enjoyed each other's company as much as everything else. The management of the property did their part to ensure that the group was happy and comfortable. Bottom line is that I highly recommend Nikki's retreats and Oliveto, in particular, and would definitely consider a return visit.

      Such beautiful weekend of yoga practice that left me feeling completely recharged. Nikki did an incredible job of making everyone feel included. And wonderful accommodations and food, plus so much natural beauty and tranquility.
      By Stephanie H for Summer Celebration Yoga Retreat on Aug 17, 2021
      Beautiful, restorative retreat. Ratna Ling is a gorgeous, peaceful setting with luxurious cabins and delicious vegan food made on premise. Nikki is a warm, engaging, gifted teacher who led daily yoga practices and guided meditations suited to all levels. There was also a spectacular hike through the redwoods to the beach. The ideal retreat for rest, renewal, and inspiration. Highly recommend.

      The. Retreat was beautifully organized. Nikki had plenty to keep us engaged. Her in person classes were a true treat . Everyone felt that they were lucky to be there and have her skill and knowledge shared so effortlessly. I would not miss this opportunity in the future. The accommodations are incredible. Beautiful two bedroom suites in the redwoods. Just lovely.
