Renew, Relax, Retreat with Eve in southern Portugal

Rooftop view of Tavira, Portugal

Our home base will be Tavira, a town on the eastern side of the Algarve (Portugal’s southern coast). The week-long retreat will feature yoga/meditation on most days, as well as excursions to explore local culture. Watch videos of Peaceful Portugal.

Even weeks after being home, friends commented that I seemed “really refreshed.” That’s a testament to you and our fabulous trip to Portugal!

Eve in alcove, Algarve

“There will be yoga, wine and song. And plenty of Portuguese seafood. A bona fide tour of the Algarve sprinkled with some gentle tune-ups to support body and mind.”

Meet your host, Eve Fleishman

Eve’s love affair with southern Portugal began in 2018, when she made her first solo trip to the region. She visited towns along the coast from west to east, and on the last day Tavira stole her heart. In 2019, she returned with her husband Mark to film their episode of House Hunters International. They now own a place in the Algarve, the perfect vacation home! More about Eve’s journey
