Floripa is the ideal location for a beach get away. It has a great energy and the owners Ettore and Ameriga are fabulous hosts. You can be as active as you like with all sorts of activities on offer like surfing, kitesurfing, SUP and bike rides, but you can also do yoga, go for walks on the beach or just... More

I've never been on a yoga retreat. I feel like this is the most amazing surf break you are likely to have with wonderful yoga classes as well. I didn't do the SUP, but next time. When I first turned up, I was greeted by Ettore and Simona (the best cook/housekeeper ever). Simona's breakfasts are legendary. She makes cake and... More

Lovely house, lovely beach, good yoga teacher, free use of bicycles and sup boards - what else could one wish for? I went there for yoga retreat. I guess it is more like yoga holiday than retreat which suited me fine, but people wanting to meditate more, not tolerating music playing on the background and not liking wine at dinners... More

Lovely accommodation, individual rooms with creative interiors; great air con, and dark and quiet at night. The breakfasts are served outside and the area is relaxed, friendly and perfect for enjoying the strong coffee, fresh fruit and home made cake (amongst other things). The evening meals are also well worth it, delicious, great quality and healthy. I had a lovely... More

I had an ok stay at Floripa, however it wasn't the wonderfully relaxing experience I had anticipated. I like to travel with an open mind however I was disappointed. I booked this trip through a yoga retreat booking site. I wouldn't call this a yoga retreat. I knew it was a surf house, so expected surfers as well as yogis,... More

I was looking for something special for a break before returning to work. I chose the Floripa for a chance to do yoga, for location just steps from the beautiful beach with the dunes of Santa Maria del Focallo, for the opportunity to interact and meet other guests, a surf house! The expectations were not disappointed; the rooms are clean,... More

This was one of the best breaks away I have experienced. My first yoga retreat and I loved every minute of it. First class service and Ameriga and Ettore are wonderful hosts everything is positive here the food, the environment, the accommodation and activities. Natural oils they sell here are also great I bought two bottles. The surf shop has... More

I found Floripa principally as a yoga holiday but it ended up being an excellent all round break away from everything! The yoga practice was truly excellent. Then during the day I was able to relax by the beach on their own beach beds and parasols. Ameriga and Attore welcome you into their home with great food and provide a... More

Floripa Surf House was a great find! I wanted a week of relaxing, yoga and beach and this was just perfect. With beautiful rooms; an extremely short walk to the beach; a fantastic yoga sala and delicious breakfasts this was just what I was looking for. As a solo traveller I felt comfortable and welcomed. Ameriga looked after me from... More
