Monte na Luz

Monte na Luz: September 22nd – 29th 2018

Singing Holiday in Portugal

We are very pleased to be returning to Portugal in 2018.

The Holiday is at the lovely Monte na Luz retreat in the Algarve (20 minutes from Faro airport).

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.

Note: Due to the rural nature of the retreat and being on the side of a valley, the pathways around the site are quite rocky and hilly. We do therefore suggest that if you need assistance with walking then this isn’t the retreat for you. You may like to consider our other holiday at Cortijo Romero.


Here are some videos of the retreat including our Holiday in 2017.

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.

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 1pm 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.
