The Retreat Center is located in the far west of the touristically developed Algarve, right at the beginning of the wild, natural west coast and only a few minutes drive from Lagos.

This location makes the accommodation ideal for retreats with a sense of nature and tranquility.


Lagos lies on the southern coast of the Algarve and is famous for its picturesque coastal landscape with the rock formations of the “Ponta de piedade”.

With its many vegetarian and vegan restaurants, the weekly organic market and its lifestyle, Lagos is one of the most popular destinations for yogis, surfers, dropouts, and anyone else following an alternative lifestyle.

West of the city begins the nature reserve “Costa Vicentina” and Sagres the most south-westerly point of Europe can be reached in half an hour by car.

Nature Reserve Costa Vicentina

The stretch of coast between Odeceive and Burgau is known as “Costa Vicentina”. Here lies “the other” Algarve, away from mass tourism. The nature reserve has retained its wild character to this day.

The beaches follow each other, some of them stretch over long distances, others are smaller and are framed by magnificent slate and limestone cliffs. The rough sea creates a natural symphony that will sound like a soundtrack in your ears long after your retreat.

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.
