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 yoga free day mid week. There will also be dinner out on this evening and one other to soak up the atmosphere of the local towns.
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.
Quinta Mimosa offers different levels of accommodation to suit every budget. Traditional Portuguese farmhouses have been carefully converted into charming self-contained houses. All offer spacious and comfortable en-suite twin, double and single occupancy bedrooms plus two single occupancy rooms that share a bathroom. The converted farmhouses are surrounded by terraces and lawns with distant views to the hills and the sea. All have kitchens, lounge areas and swimming pools.
