Faro is the nearest airport and it takes only a little over an hour to reach our retreat center. The easiest and fastest way is to book a private transfer or to rent a car. If you come on a budget, the shared shuttle bus is a good option too, but it takes longer. If you have plenty of time and enjoy the adventure of public transport this is also an option. We listed your options below.
Rent a car
There are multiple rental car companies, directly at the airport and if booked in advance often pretty cheap. Note that the rental company will ask you to buy full insurance. This is an option and totally up to you. Be prepared when they will ask you the question at the pick up.
For navigation you can fill in ‘Wolfs Yoga’ in Google maps or use our GPS location: 37.085157, -8.922333 in the address field (our street does not have a name). If your GPS system doesn’t recognise the last part of the road and shows you just a green field, don’t worry, there is a dirt road going left and you’ll see a big gate :-) Please park inside the gate!

As much as we would like to open earlier for you, we need to prepare the retreat before your arrival, have the cleaning team working in the house and we’re gone to the farmers market for fresh organic ingredients. Therefore it is not possible to check in earlier.

The mornings and evenings can be quite chilly, so make sure you bring some layers to practice comfortably outside, till the sun comes out to warm us. We will provide fleece blankets.
