I loved it here, if you need a re-set, a re-think, some space and time to come alive again in a supportive, genuine, good hearted, kind environment you should go...one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It’s also beautiful! A very special place x

This place is superb. The staff are incredible and are always available to talk to, to offer encouragement, support or advice when needed. This was my 3rd visit to Moinhos Velhos and it won’t be my last. It’s not just a juice retreat to me but a spiritual haven. It’s a magical place that has the most amazing energy to it. Probably helps the surrounding mountain has clear quartz crystals embedded into it and the views are to die for. The juice fast is really enjoyable but I also love the yoga in the mornings, followed by a lovely treatment - there are so many to choose from. If I fancy a dip in the pool I can or I can have a lovely walk around their grounds. 16 hectares to be exact. If you want somewhere to go where you can shut yourself off from the outside world and have time away to reflect and re-energise then Moinhos Vehlos is a must. I have just returned home 7 pounds lighter and feel so healthy. Can't wait to return!! Really can’t recommend it enough.

Had a lovely two weeks here. love the communal atmosphere around juice time, and the facilities and peaceful setting. So great for bush trails and still quite close to Lagos (if you feel like getting an uber an exploring). Will be back. Thank you Mel, Ed, Debbie, Chris, Karen and team.

Moinhos Velhos was a breath of fresh air among detox & yoga retreats! My 7 day retreat was so uplifting , its rustic charm, daily yoga practice, which was the best I have ever experienced, organic gardens, and daily juice, joy & laughter, poolside fun, new friends, & all the staff, plus the resident dogs, made my retreat week, a little piece of heaven in all the stress of life. Thank you so very much, for all the kindness and care.

I can’t thank everyone at Moinhos Velhos enough for the care and kindness they showed each of us. We had a wonderful retreat - the 10 days allows you to go deeper. This is not just a physical detox it’s a mental, emotional and spiritual one. Everyone looked so well and so peaceful at the end. There are gardens where much of the fruit and vegetables are grown for the juice - including the oranges, and there’s a walk nearby down to the dam (the only drawback is there’s limited amounts of different walks but they are beautiful and there is a trip to the coast included too). I was a bit sceptical before I came but extremely run down and Moinhos Velhos was just what I needed. It cleared away years of stress. This is not a superficial materialistic experience - it’s very comfortable with fires in the sitting room, sauna, hot tub and a lovely fresh pool - but it also has a spiritual aspect too with the yoga and chanting that provides a helpful focus and the teachers are wonderful. When I left at the end I felt like I’d left a community, not just a retreat.
