Surroundings - Algarve Retreat Location "Casa das Assumadas"

The hinterland of the Algarve


Less known to tourists than the coastal region, the Algarve hinterland still retains its old charm.

The Barrocal is hilly area, off the shallow coastal strip and south of the high mountain range of the Serra de Monchique.

Almond, fig, carob, olive and citrus trees are cultivated here. Loulé, Querença, Salir, Alte and Silves are just some of the places of interest in the vicinity of the Retreat Location.


Assumadas is located on the border of the districts of Silves and Albufeira.

Albufeira, located on the coast, is now more famous for its many bars and nightlife. The old town and the beaches are also worth a visit for those who like it a little quieter.

Silves is located in the hinterland of the Algarve and is the entrance to the mountains “Serra de Monchique”.


Like many cities in the Algarve, Albufeira, founded by Romans, flourished under Arab rule from the eighth century onwards.

Albufeira was one of the most important trading bases for trade with Africa.

After the conquest of the city by the knights of the Portuguese king Afonso III in 1249, as well as the great earthquake and tsunami in 1755, the city twice lost much of its importance built up over many years.

Today, Albufeira is one of the most popular tourist destinations, benefiting from the beautiful beaches and proximity to Faro airport.

The Retreat Location is conveniently located between the coastline with its beautiful beaches from Albufeira to Ferragudo and the hinterland of the Algarve, in which extensive walks and the authentic way of life of the Portuguese can be experienced.

sun & soul

Our team

I am familiar with the Algarve and know what services the participants of your retreat wish. It gives me tremendous pleasure to organize exactly these services for you and your coaching group and to organize your retreat for you.
Because I want your retreat to stand out from the crowd.

Since my first visit to the Algarve more than 25 years ago, I have succumbed to the beauty of Portugal’s south, the climate, the still existing unspoilt nature and the sea. In many stays of several years living, working and studying, I got to know not only the language, but also the country and people, as well as the culture of Portugal. These experiences help me to organize Retreats in the Algarve with special charm, excursions to the most beautiful places and services of all kinds.

Mindfulness for me means more than yoga, meditation and personal training or coaching. Sustainability and regionality, but also comfort, togetherness and travel are part of it for me. At sun & soul I make sure for you that mindfulness in all its facets is guaranteed on your retreat. Together with you we create a special retreat.

Two hearts beat in me: organization, planning and travel on the one hand and mindfullness, yoga and healthy eating on the other hand. With sun & soul I combine my organizational talent with the aspects of a mindful and sustainable way of life and support you to organize the perfect retreat for your participants!

Lead a retreat!

A successful retreat is based on two pillars: good coaching and a great atmosphere and setting. We organize your mindfulness retreat from A-Z according to your wishes and take care of the smooth running. So on your group trip both conditions for an outstanding experience of your participants are fulfilled:

  • You focus on your guests.
  • We provide the perfect setting.

This creates real added value and is the basis for an all-round successful retreat and satisfied guests.

Save time and stress. Let sun & soul organize your retreat in the Algarve.

Our Service

Whether yoga vacation, seminar week, retreats, work or small group and coaching trip. Before and during the event, you want to fully concentrate on planning and executing your coaching. Your customers are the focus and you want to give them an unforgettable, beautiful and enriching experience. That’s why we take over the organization of your mindfulness retreat and keep your back free!

We are your team: All you have to do is bring your own group and coach. We take care of everything else!

Why sun & soul?

Everything you would otherwise have to put together individually and book piece by piece, we will do for you. In addition, you benefit from our network, experience, tour operator price advantages, reduced accounting complexity, insurance coverage and the fact that we know exactly what’s important when organising your retreat.

Because mindfulness is not a phrase for us. We live it every day.

What are the advantages for you?

We organize and coordinate each part of the retreat for you and put it together in one package. So you can concentrate on your coaching / training and focus on your participants. This is an invaluable advantage. Because if you spend your days coordinating and organizing each item during the retreat, your participants will not receive the attention and service they expect and deserve. We are your solution to this problem. Concentrate on your core competencies, we’ll do the rest for you.

We know the Algarve, the people, the beauty of nature and the local language. We have a network and are your guarantee for a perfectly planned and completed retreat. Benefit from us! Your customers will appreciate it.

As a registered tour operator, we handle the entire booking process and the payment process. We will ensure that all the legal requirements for your retreat are met and also free you from the issues of complicated travel tax rules that apply to coaching and retreat travel.

We are the only company that organizes Retreats in private holiday homes. There will be noone else than you and your group present. This ensures that you find the perfect conditions to create exactly the atmosphere and the group feeling that is important to reach the goals of the retreat.

We make sure that your retreat becomes an unforgettable and beautiful experience for you and your party.

What does our service cost?

Every retreat is unique, just like our packages. We create a retreat that fits your needs, requirements and budget. As a tour operator we have access to better prices for accommodation and services of all kinds. Simply contact us and we will make you a good offer.

You will not see an invoice from us. After the retreat you will give us an invoice for your profit. You have nothing to do with the cost of the services of your retreat. We will pay them.
