I spent another 10 days at Moinhos Velhos after my first trip nearly 9 years ago. Back then my experience was so profound, I wanted every year to return. This time I flew all the way from Australia for the trip as there is nothing nearby me that can rival this place. Janni, Frank and Anna Korine are truly magical... More

I have just had a fantastic week at MOINHOS VELHOS. I took the 7 day programme to make a short holiday at Moinhos Velhos, as well as training on the Physiospect machine. After being taken to my accommodation for the week, a very comfortable wooden cabin (pictured) I was made very welcome and shown around the retreat facilities. MOINHOS VELHOS... More

Tonight is my last night of my two week juice fast at Moinhos Velhos. I feel healthy and energized. I’ve been drinking only juice and vegetable broth for two weeks and I never felt hungry. Moinhos Velhos is the perfect spot for a practical, busy Mom to get two weeks of peace and quiet, give her body a reboot, and... More

Moinhos Velhos is set in one of the most breathtaking nature valleys I have ever seen. The center carries a nice energy, the staff is very helpful and friendly and there are some highly skilled therapists working there which help in making this detoxing retreat a very healing experience. The yoga studio is absolutely beautiful and a pleasure to practice... More

I was here for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. Soon after my arrival, I could really feel the Divine and sacred energies of this place. In terms of location, Moinhos Velhos is in the hillsides of the Algarve, in a beautiful valley, buried in nature. It was so nice to stop every so often and just listen to... More

I stayed at Moinhos Velhos in September 2011 and loved it. I felt really away from it all, surrounded by beautiful gardens, chickens roaming free, the most amazing salt water pool to swim in, a sauna that really helped my detox process and the yoga and therapies were bliss. I lost 4kg during my cleanse and by the end felt... More

Moinhos Velhos is truly a little paradise for connecting with mother nature & all her great diversity. Away from the noises of civilization, this is a magical place for a respite and an abundance of adventures & experiences. The grounds offer a virtual extravaganza of tree, shrub & plant species. There are over 25 fruit tree varieties alone. The terrain... More

Moinhos Velhos is tucked away in the hillsides above the Algarve, in a quiet valley surrounded by absolutely nothing to disturb or distract from their fasting programme which ideally last for two weeks. A beautiful place, clean, functional with wonderful staff made the perfect setting for my fast in August 2011. It was a life-changing experience. The facilities are modern... More

I'm from the USA, but decided to come all the way to Portugal for this juice fasting program because most of the programs in the US are SO expensive, starting at $3,000 per week and up. The better ones are often upwards of 6 or 7, and they don't even have a formal program. Here, while juice fasting and detoxing,... More
