Have a great idea? Let us hear it! We are open for any kind of collab.
Earth Woman Retreat 21 - 26 July
- Nathalie & Kakalina Cacao - Coming together with sisters surrounded by nature at this magical spot. We will make a deep dive within ourselves, where you will lovingly ground yourself into your unique being. We will connect to the earth woman within ourselves and connect to our own true nature. We will make a journey through the elements, connect with them and work with them. We will work a lot with the healing plant medicine KAKALINA cacao, the food of the gods, which will guide us back into our heart. From this deep rooted connection with our body, our heart and our soul we will rise up in self love and stand in our power while supporting each other, carrying each other and empowering each other. This is going to be a week filled with a true sisterhood, ceremonial cacao, deep connection, inquiry, sharing circles, meditations/visualizations, breath work, nature, ecstatic dance, surf, gentle yoga, music and a lot of LOVE.
Cherish Life 11 - 17 July
- Zsófi and Leonie - Celebrating this precious life together. The word cherish means to hold (something) dear or to keep (a hope or ambition) in one's mind. We will feel into the unique experience of being wildly alive, in tune with our true selves and nature. A space will be created for a deep connection to Nature's elements within our bodies and outside. All while merging our senses with the waves of the ocean, the touches of the wind, the dampness of the earth. Holding dear each experience close to our hearts while unraveling our hopes to bring more of this into our everyday lives.
Makai Surf Camp 5 - 12 July
- Makai Surf - we invite you to a unique surf camp. We will spend part of the day in the ocean and on the beach, and tired of the sun and paddling we will rest in our beautiful villa with swimming pool in peaceful Ferrel. We will also show you the largest oriental garden in Europe and visit Lisbon together. Most of all, we will infect you with our love for surfing and Portugal!
Surf & Yoga Brunch Last Sunday of the Month
We meet at sunrise, when everything and everyone is still asleep, and get in the water to wake up our spirit and muscles. After surfing, we'll have a vegan brunch buffet with all the delicious and healthy treats. After brunch we continue with a stretching session and gentle flow yoga.
Surfing is a way of life in this part of Portugal and we highly encourage you to try it at least once. We work with one of the best local surf schools and instructors to offer personalised surfing lessons. Whether you are a complete beginner or advanced enough to surf the big waves at Supertubos (15 mins away, where the World Surf Championships happen every year), we have classes and rentals to suit everyone. You can choose from private surf lessons or small group lessons (maximum of 5 surfers per coach). Your coaches will deliver the best experience by focusing on your level, adapting their instructions to your natural style and can complement your learning with video analysis and surf-skate lessons. Your surf lessons will include transfer to and from the beach, surfboard, and wetsuit rental if you do not wish to bring your own.
So spend a few hours at the beach, and we assure you, you will feel one with the water and waves. Celebrate after your surf session with new friends at the beach bars in Baleal. If you have mastered surfing, we also offer lessons for windsurfing, kite-surfing or wing-foil… the list goes on.
We welcome you to try the sustainable lifestyle during your stay at Milu Guesthouse, Ferrel and experience our little swap rack.
Our founder Michelle has always loved travelling and bringing back souvenirs from around the world. Each of her curated souvenirs has a story. In 2019-20, as Michelle decided to become a minimalist and digital nomad, the first thing she had to sacrifice was her “souvenir maximalism”. Her penchant for owning interesting, storied pieces and her sustainable and minimalist lifestyle led her to the idea of creating an ‘in-house swap market’.
Milu will always have a swap rack of apparel and accessories to support its digital nomad guests who live out of a suitcase on their best days. Browse through this rack to find the perfect windbreaker for windy days or that swimsuit you forgot to pack for the sunny days. We ask that you leave some of your pre-loved items on that rack for the next person.
Help us make sustainability and minimalism a central theme at Milu. After all, things are meant to be loved, swapped and re-loved!
Surf and yoga work together, physical and spiritual, to help a surfer achieve a rested mind and a stronger body. So there is no surfing without stretching and Yoga. Therefore we have our own private teacher who you can book for an outdoor session on our beautiful terrace. Ask the host for more details.
