The Not So Serious Retreat with Yoga & Wine at Quinta Camarena

Cercal do Alentejo, Portugal - Date 06/29/2024


If you love the idea of going on a Yoga retreat but you´re afraid of getting stuck with people that take it too seriously and you need more than green juice and whole grains to eat and drink? You want to go on a vacation where you can combine yoga practice, hiking, relax, countryside, beach, healthy and delicious food and natural wine? We have got the thing for you...
We are a different kind of Yoga Retreat. Our sustainable program mixes, wellness, nature, and local culture. For a balance of selfcare and enjoyment. This “kinda” retreat is for people who practice and love yoga, or they’re just curious about it and all the amazing benefits it brings to your (cliché alert) body and mind. But it’s true. And also fun.


The Rustic charm Rooms are cozy accommodations with double or 2 single beds, each with a private bathroom. The room has been curated with many handmade pieces and local art crafts following sustainable principles.
The beds have top-quality linens made in Portugal. The bathrooms were recently renovated and have a hairdryer and local, artisanal soaps made with organic ingredients.
Upgrades are available for the Hillside duplex rooms with private balcony.

Cam, from Los Angeles, and Vera, from Porto, Portugal, met in New York City. They bonded over their passion for travel and outdoor sports, often surfing in their free time. Their love for adventure eventually led them to Alentejo, Portugal, where they now reside. Despite having lived in various countries and maintaining global friendships, they felt a natural connection to this region. Settling in Cercal was a significant shift, requiring them to leave behind established careers and comforts. Initially a distant dream, they now proudly offer Quinta Camarena as a private vacation rental for retreats. They tirelessly work to enhance its beauty and comfort, personally curating every detail. Surrounded by the region's beauty, community warmth, traditions, and exciting projects, they are thrilled to share their dream home with guests and weave its history into every corner.
