  • "The holiday at The Butterfly House was a unique experience, both for me and my daughter. Our target was to have a holiday in nature, eating healthy, and exploring more the yoga world. We are grateful for Helena and Dani for offering us this magnificent experience. The house and gardens beautifully combine nature and the Portuguese traditions. The yoga platform feels like a temple, making the yoga class an unforgettable experience, feeling the Atlantic breeze, and listening to bird song. The yoga class for the kids was a great introduction to my four year daughter. The food was tasty and healthy and the accommodation great!"

    "Thank you so much for a fantastic family yoga retreat. We were made to feel welcome from the start of the holiday and came away feeling truly revitalized! The kids loved doing their yoga lesson with the teacher and have learned many asanas as well as enjoying the other activities on offer. Our yoga teacher was wonderful and you couldn't beat doing the practice out in the open air. It was a remarkable holiday that we'll remember."

    "I arrived at The Butterfly House with my four year old daughter. My hope was that she would spend time with other kids and participate in yoga based activities which would enable me to practice in the adult class. My fear was that she might not stay engaged for the full hour and a half. However, I need not have worried as Marline was able to create a wonderful environment for the kids to learn yoga poses and get involved with art and craft based on some of the principles of yoga. This enabled me to benefit from the the yoga classes given by Manu. He has helped me with my practice and given my confidence to work on my headstands and other poses which I found difficult. By the end of the week my daughter had made such good friends that she did not want to leave"

    "10 out of 10 for the family yoga holiday. The accommodation was stylish and comfortable, the gardens were beautifully laid out, with plenty of places to relax. Both the adults and kids yoga was a great success. Our teacher Manu guided us through the week and we came away feeling like we had progressed a lot. The children also had fun with their yoga and we're going to try to continue their lessons back in the UK."

    "This yoga retreat is really specially, there is so much to do in the area, including dolphin watching and we even went on a sea horse safari! It was good to start the day every morning with yoga classes, which I'd normally not be able to do. My daughter loved her time with her teacher doing yoga poses, going for nature walks and painting the Mandolas. Our apartment was beautiful and the gardens and view over the orchard spectacular. We loved our fresh juices and breakfast basket in the morning. Many thanks."
