Location;
Casa fontelheira is located in the romantic and idyllic town of Guimaraes, which was Portugal’s original capital. Porto is famous for its port-wine cellars. There are various nature reserves listed on the UNESCO world heritage site, and the Douro route leads to the extensive vineyards. Northern Portugal has a wealth of sights. A stay at Casa Fontelheira is the perfect opportunity for enjoying the breath-taking Portuguese landscape and culture.

A new cycling path has recently been constructed near the Casa Fontelheira holiday home, stretching some 35 kilometres between Arco de Baulhe and Amarante. Casa Fontelheira also provides bikes for its guests.
When you walk downhill from Casa Fontelheira, you will get to the Tamega river. The Tamega flows through the North of Portugal and into the famous Douro river. The Tamega features various Praia Fluvials. These are small natural beaches where you may swim.
Both inside the house and outside you may of course make use of our Wi-Fi.
In the months of July, August and September there are plenty of Festas everywhere. These are local festivals which are a real sight to see. The music and fireworks will continue deep into the night..

Accommodation;
Casa Fontelheira offers two different types of accommodations for you. The luxury of a Casa or the luxury of glamping with its various safari tents / lodges.
The Casa are decorated in style with an authentic look. And the Glamping tents look amazing. Have a look on their website to check it out. www.casafontelheira.com
Please let us know if you have any preference of staying in a Glamping tent or Casa, we will let you know what is still available for you!
Each lodge has a kitchen with kitchen utensils, lounge sofa, table, own bathroom with hammam shower, double sink and toilet. Terrace with picknicksofa, lounge chairs and panoramic view, gardens and green fields.
Included in your package is breakfast with tea and coffee, lunch and dinner. Drinks during lunch and dinner are excluded. In case you have any food allergies or intolerances please let us know before.

Yoga
Katie Bee will be leading the yoga lessons at our retreat. She is a 500+ hour trained yoga instructor who has traveled the world training and teaching yoga. Her journey started over 10 years ago when she first came to yoga and developed her own personal practice to help combat anxiety. 5 years ago, she completed her first 200 hour yoga teacher training in New York City. Her journey continued from there, quitting her job to train, travel and teach. She moved to Australia for a year opening up her own space to teach private lessons and holding group sessions at various locations. She then went on to complete a 300 hour Hatha based yoga training in Rishikesh, India. Katie continued studying in Bali, Myanmar and Sri Lanka (where she completed her aerial yoga teacher training course). Katie is currently based in Sri Lanka where she works as an instructor and facilitator teaching at yoga retreats. She teaches vinyasa, hatha, slow flow, restorative, yin, meditation/pranayama and aerial yoga classes. Katie’s yoga practice and teaching style has moved from a place of purely yang (active) yoga to a more balanced combination of both yin (slower) and yang styles of yoga.
In this retreat, we will also find this harmony with a more active yoga practice in the morning (vinyasa, hatha) and a slower, more restful practice in the evening (yin, restorative, meditation or yoga nidra). We
will explore restoring this balance in our practice and our lives! All varying levels of yoga practitioners are welcome! For more details, feel free to message @katiebeeyoga on Instagram.

Activities.
We won’t offer a daily schedule as normal retreats do. It is a relaxing week where you decide what activities you would like to join or not.
Besides meals there will be optional activities. It’s everyone’s holiday and you can create it however you like. Everyone needs something else out of their holiday, either you like a very active holiday with rafting, canyoning and cycling or if you prefer chilling at the pool every day that’s possible too.
Optional activities:
● Rafting
● Canyoning
● Cycling
● Walking tour
● Massage
● Cleaning facial treatment
● Golfing
● Renting a car
● A day in Porto
● Just chilling at the heated pool
Most important, you should do whatever you feel like doing, it’s your holiday 😉 We are just happy to help you create the best holiday ever.

At night we will offer a social dinner and everyone is welcome to join, these are all included in your package.
