Retreats 2017

Virtuoso Retreats in the Algarve:  October 2017


We are pleased to introduce and announce our special retreats with 2 dates scheduled for this year in October 2017.

Why not start planning your Summer holidays early and book what will be an insightful luxurious break away.

The emphasis for these retreats are for you to take time out from your busy schedule, relax, recharge and energise. The goal of these retreats are to give you an introduction into achieving better health and longevity through natural practices, classes and hands on workshops with our professional health coach and holistic executive chef, Guilda.  Guilda is not only the owner of Virtuoso Foods, she is a professional Vegan, Gluten Free & Raw chef, now specialising in Macrobiotics. She will be showing, guiding and teaching you how to cook with seasonal produce to create delicious dishes.

The daily schedule will include cooking demonstrations and workshops, hands on cooking, talks and discussions on daily specific subjects around food and health, meditation classes, groups and movement sessions.  You will leave filling refreshed having thoroughly enjoyed some ‘you’ time in magical luxurious settings with access to all modern conveniences.  You will also have plenty of ‘free’ time to enjoy the villa and pool, it’s surroundings as well as the local beaches and town.


Galé in Albufeira, central Algarve, is a quiet residential area about 5kms west of Albufeira old town. There are three gorgeous beaches and a scattering of restaurants, bars and shops. It is perfect for a relaxing, peaceful holiday and also only a short drive from the nightlife in Albufeira.


Occupying a central location in the lively resort of Gale, the Villa is a great choice for beach lovers as it is only 5 minutes walk from Gale’s sandy beach. With modern furnishings and stylish décor throughout, this spacious villa will suit larger parties. Four out of the five tasteful bedrooms benefit from an en-suite bathroom with access to communal areas. The attractive pool area is a fantastic place to relax and unwind, while to the rear of the property, the barbeque area offers the perfect place for an evening meal. Conveniently, the nearest supermarket can be reached in just a couple of minutes walk.


October in the Algarve region is usually warm, with an average daytime maximum temperature of 23°C at the capital of the Algarve, Faro, and an average overnight minimum temperature of 15°C.
