A week in Vale de Moses is like giving yourself a very precious gift : time for yourself, to walk in the forest & swim in the river, to find calm and space in the quietness of the mountains, to find balance and serenity in the wonderful yoga practice (and laughter and perfection and fun thanks to wonderful Tashi), to...

Vale de Moses is a very, very special spot. Beautiful Portuguese countryside, mountain water showers, swims in the river, incredible food, excellent yoga, wonderful therapists, the most beautiful yoga studio I've ever had the pleasure of practicing in, and run by the nicest people you could meet. Go.

Vale de Moses is a truly amazing place where you can easily leave all the chaos and madness of everyday life behind - it is like being transported into an alternate universe full of beautiful people, food, nature and dogs! I've never been on a yoga retreat before and so had no expectations but was absolutely blown away by how...

It's been a return visit and I enjoyed Vale de Moses just as much as the first time! What I love most about this magical place? Be warned, this is going to be a long list ;-) (in random order) 1. Being close to beautiful, wild and original nature - feeling the elements, seeing the beauty of the trees, the...

Oh Annie, thank you so so much for such a detailed review of your retreats here. Most people find it difficult to put the experience into words. We really appreciate the time it took you to write this. To work out why a week in nature in a wilderness spot like this, is so good for our souls! Thank you...

As a travelled yoga teacher I must say this place is unique. The hosts as well as the location are amazing and the love, beauty and authenticity I found make me want to return soon! It is located in a gorgeous valley with plenty of nature plus a river to recharge your batteries. The hosts Andrew and Vonetta are very...

Masha, thank you so much for such a glowing review of our home in the mountains! I'll pass on your review to our team who will be over the moon. Thank you. And yes absolutely you have to come back, maybe to teach a retreat or 2 in the years to come! Thanks again. A&V xxx

What an amazing place! You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts, and the whole team are excellent at what they do. The landscape is simply gorgous and it is a great setting to relax, do yoga and enjoy the lovely company. This was my first trip to Vale De Moses and I hope it wont be the last!

Andrew and Vonnie have created something truly special here, a sanctuary in the mountains with incredible food, incredible yoga, treatments, space to be alone or with other people. I've no doubt I'll be back some time in the future. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Thank you! That's kind of you to say. We feel this mountain space became our sanctuary from the first day we arrived, before we moved a single stone. It was ,and suspect always will be, a truly peaceful little bit of planet earth. Thanks for coming all the way to spend a week with us here. And thanks for your...

This place was amazing - there are no other words. I went to this retreat to find calmness in my life and came home with many lessons learnt. Whether it was Andrew's morning walks (with the most amazing Zen voice ever), Von's beautiful smile, Tashi's amazing teachings (for mind/body/soul), Raul's out of this world ayurvedic food, Peter's amazing teachings and...

I've been to this retreat twice now and both times it was pretty life-changing. Andrew, Vonetta and the entire team is a family and they make you feel like part of theirs.

I have just returned from an incredible week of yoga, mountains, walking, relaxation, ayurvedic food, laughter and a sense of "coming home." I still feel like I am floating on cloudnine:) I cannot recommend this yoga retreat enough:)
