Retreat of the week
Vale de Moses, Portugal
Run by husband and wife Andrew and Vonetta Winter, Vale de Moses is set in a heartbreakingly beautiful valley surrounded by pine and eucalyptus forest. It has a warm, easy-going feel, rather like a large friendly house party. The six night retreats are all yoga-based, and offer good quality teaching, holistic treatments, occasional cooking classes and lovely (though sometimes challenging) walks. Some weeks feature afternoon workshops on Pilates, Ayurveda, Thai massage or sleep.
