This was my first Surf & Yoga Camp Holiday and I couldn´t wish for a better place to fulfill my dream. I had Yoga twice a day and all the Yoga teachers were so caring and empathic which made me feel at home right away. I never had so much amazing food during my holidays, every lunch and dinner was a dream come true, thanks to Leonor. Miguel organized every activity perfectly and took care of every wishes / changes patiently. Lara, our host, was there for us every minute and took amazing care of us as well. We could always call / ask her, if we had something on our mind. And not forget the dreamlike house. You are falling in love with it the minute you go into the living room and it welcomes you right away with an open heart. This week was exactly what I needed, thank you so much. And: not to forgot about the surf crew "surf is up portugal". I learnt so much thanks to Vascos and they are great fun as well. Love them.

I was in the Karma Surf Retreat "Montana" the second time already. And it definitely will not be the last time I will stay there. When we arrived after got picked up at the airport they really remembered me from the last time and i felt home immediately. The house itself is so cozy with a nice view over Cascais, that you don't want to leave ever again :) The crew of the house is sooo lovely, helpful, funny just perfect!! The food from the cook Leonor is sooo delicous, there is something on the table for every one, and if not Leonor will prepare a plate (or two) of pasta for you immediately :) the yogasessions in the beautiful shala (or on the terrace if it is warm enough) are the perfect way to start and end your days in Karma Surf Retreat. If you would like to try to surf, you definitely have to do so in Karma Surf Retreat, the surfteachers are so much fun, very patient, supportive etc just perfect!!! All together a perfect holiday for everyone and I will DEFINITELY come back sooner (or later) :)

We just got back from an amazing week with Karma Yoga and Surf retreat in Guincho Villa. The villa was really nice in beautiful grounds, fantastic views from the decking, very nice en-suite room. Our Hosts - Lara, Miguel & Leonor really looked after us and Leonor’s cooking was out of this world- very tasty , very healthy - and I even got some special food requests!. There was a range of ages and abilities in the Yoga sessions - I was the oldest but least experienced- but was really encouraged and looked after . We also did SUP, Surfing and hiking which all went well. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return. Well done Karma!
