We spent a week at Vale de Moses earlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Everything about this retreat is wonderful. Andrew and his family and rest of the team are terrific hosts. Food was glorious. So flavorful and nourishing and delicious. I really liked our yoga and meditation practices. Fleur is open hearted and playful and she and Nina are amazing beings and terrific yoga instructors. Retreat itself is very peaceful in the Portuguese green mountains. We did a bunch of hiking around too and saw old and new villages. There was a really nice group of people who came together as strangers and by the end of week we learned about each other and found new friends from all over the world. I would definitely recommend checking it out. It’s lovely.

Vale de Moses is AMAZING. It's a bit of a trek to get there but worth every minute. What Andrew said is true, that absolutely everything about it nurtures and nourishes you: the restaurant-worthy vegetarian food, the silence and nature; time by yourself, time with others; the yoga, for both body and mind. Andrew and Vonetta are the soul of kindness; funny host Olly stops things from getting too serious. With each day I felt myself settling more into myself, fully supported and loved. I almost don't want to share it with anybody else, but GO.

I just can't recommend Vale De Moses enough. All the staff are so welcoming and friendly that you immediately feel part of the family - so much so that it feels wrong to call them "staff". My week was focussed on sleep, and I went away with renewed hope that I could improve my sleep (and many practical tips on how to do so), after resigning myself years ago that I would forever be a poor sleeper. The yoga was enlightening and the right level of challenge, and the food was INCREDIBLE. And really nourishing. All around an amazing experience - I would return immediately if time and money allowed.

If you're looking to get away from the hurly-burly and reconnect with the more important things then this is a great place to do it. Yoga teacher Fleur is absolutely fantastic. All the staff are friendly and welcoming and genuinely care about the well-being of the guests, and the treatments were great. The food is also something to behold, and taste. The other guests were also all amazing people - I think retreats like this probably attract people with particular interests and values, and so we all got on very well. I stayed in the Nija Suite, which is tiny single bedded room at the top of at stone building. At 5'2" I was able to stand up easily in the room, but have to duck to get through the door. The rest of the accommodation is full height though, and I loved my little room. There were some outdoor showers which were hot when the sun was out, and cold when not, but there are hot showers and water flushing loos up at the main house which is a short walk from the furthest accommodation. The retreat is on the side of a valley with lovely wooded areas all around and there are some beautiful walks around and about. I should mention that valleys come with hills, but hills come with breathtaking views. There is a natural bathing pool by one of the cottages and another two down in the valley a few minutes walk away. The one at the top is a little chilly and only for the more robust or crazy guests - the ones at the bottom are much warmer as they get more sun. Vale de Moses might not be everyone's cup of tea - if you can't stand composting toilets and want all mod-cons at your fingertips then this probably isn't for you. But if you are looking for a genuine retreat with a huge does of nature then this is absolutely it - and the food is anything other but 'rustic'.
