About Quinta Mimosa

Quinta Mimosa offers a warm welcome, caring hospitality and delicious healthy meals in relaxed and beautiful natural surroundings. The comfortable feeling of a 'home away from home' with charming little houses offering a range of accommodation.

The spacious, airy and cool yoga studio is fully equipped and opens out onto a peaceful walled garden with a lawn for practice in the open air.

The daily programme

There will be two classes each day in a beautiful designed yoga studio fully equipped with mats, blocks and comfy bolsters. In the morning there will be a two hour practice which will be more active and dynamic. The practice will be suitable for all levels.

After a delicious brunch there will be time to enjoy the beautiful grounds, gardens and pool, or explore the surrounding natural beauty. The stunning beaches of the Algarve are nearby. Otherwise you could simply rest in the lovely surroundings of Quinta Mimosa and enjoy being on retreat.

In the late afternoon there will be a second class of 1.5 hours, which will be more restorative, gentle and relaxing. In the evening you can look forward to a wonderful meal of local, fresh cooked vegetarian food which has been widely praised by all who have visited this beautiful retreat.

There will be a half day of yoga on Wednesday when the afternoon and evening will be free.

Things to do

Quinta Mimosa is perfectly located to visit many culturally rich towns, as well as gorgeous unspoiled beaches and lagoons along this sweeping coastline.

Between classes each day there will be time set aside to take in the stunning beauty of the surroundings. Perfect for long walks, horse riding or to just relax by the pool. A variety of massage treatments are also available with local skilled therapists.

Travel Arrangements

Faro is the main arrival airport and from here guests can take a taxi which costs around €25 for up to 4 people and the transfer time is around 20 minutes. We will group people together where possible to share transfers.

It is also possible to arrive at Lisbon and travel down to Loule by train - the station is very close to Quinta Mimosa.

For those who like to get out and about car hire is recommended but local taxis are very good and not expensive if people share.

Several airlines fly to Faro Airport:-
