Monte na Luz: October 7th – 14th 2017

Singing Holiday in Portugal

** This Holiday is now FINISHED **

Response to this holiday has been so overwhelming that Nick and I have managed to create a few more spaces by renting a villa close-by.

The Holiday is at the lovely Monte na Luz retreat in the Algarve (20 minutes from Faro airport) the week of 7-14 October 2017.

The extra spaces are in the Cabana do Tomas Villa which is a 10 minute drive away. People staying here will use the retreat like day guests and have full use of all the facilities, workshops and take all meals on the retreat. The only difference is they will sleep in the Villa.

The retreat is a 30 minute walk to Loule, a traditional Portuguese market town that is one of the most popular day trips of the central Algarve region.

The Weather that time of year is 15-23C, with 7 hours of sunshine and the sea temp around 21C (70F).

HERE is a video of the place and the website is Monte na Luz.

How Much

Residential (FULL)
A shared room (twin or triple) is £699 per person
A single room is £100 supplement

There are 4 single, 8 twin and 3 triple rooms at the retreat. All rooms have a private bathroom.

Villa (FULL)
A shared room (twin or double) is £649 per person
A single room is £100 supplement

There are 2 double rooms and a twin in the Villa which has 2 bathrooms and its own private pool.

A car is needed if staying in the Villa though you may be able to ride share with others staying there.

The holiday will be limited to 33 people.

The price includes accommodation, meals and workshops, plus a group meal out in a local restaurant. There will also be opportunities to explore the local area and a visit to the sea.

We will also have the wonderful Jane Flood with us who is a professional story teller and will keep us entertained when we’re not weaving our own harmonies. And if that’s not enough for you, the very talented Karine Butchart will lead us gently through some morning Yoga.

The high quality meals at Monte na Luz are all vegetarian. They can cater for special diets, such as Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan etc.

You will need to make your own travel and insurance arrangements. The nearest airport is Faro which is a 20 minute drive to the retreat. We will be arranging airport transfers though we don’t know the costs yet.

We also recommend you have a valid EHIC card.

How to Book

This holiday is going to fill up very quickly so please book early.
  • Check with me that we still have spaces (if you have already said you are interested then you are on the list)
  • Let me know if you need a single, twin or triple room. Due to limited single spaces please consider sharing if you can.
  • Let me know if you have any special dietary requirements. There is no extra charge for special diets.
  • As soon as we have told you we have a space for you, you will need to send me a £195 deposit per person.
  • The balance will need to be paid 2 months before the holiday

If we are full by the time you want to book you will be placed on a waiting list. Places are only secured once the deposit has been received. If you have reserved a place but not yet paid a deposit you run the risk of losing your place to someone else on the waiting list.

Please only book your flights once we tell you to go ahead. 

Please send your deposit(s) via BACS to:

Flight Information

The local airport is Faro (FAO) which is only a 20 minute drive to the retreat. Please don’t arrive at the retreat before 2pm on arrival day. We must leave by 10am on the final day. Flights arrivals and departures should be timed so that you fit in with these times.

Monte Na Luz do have a small minibus that can be used for airport transfers. Once I have everyone’s flight information I can organise the airport transfers with the retreat and give an idea of the cost.
