Cocoon Portugal is a 275-acre coastal farm + retreat, offering inspiration + community for the modern traveller. It’s also pure magic, where between the oversized hammocks and the freshwater lake (yes you can swim in it), you’ll start to lose track of time. The kind of place where each morning is a celebration, practicing under the canopy of old-growth pines, but so is each evening, with world-class wine and fascinating dinner conversation.
This stunning venue has 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms. Comfortable, clean and elegant rooms open onto an outdoor courtyard. Each room has two or three beds, that can be situated apart as a twin or triple or close together as a double. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms apart from two which share a bathroom. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space to chill, read a book or sit and chat.
You have access to these two stunning yoga shalas. Each shala comfortably fits 24 students. The indoor shala is light-filled and has enough windows and doors for the air to circulate freely. The floor is hand-made traditional Portuguese Santa Catarina tiles, which are both beautiful and a joy to practice on. The outdoor shala has wood floors and is shaded by a handful of old-growth pines. The outdoor shala has no walls and is a 3-5 minute walk from the house. It’s especially wonderful for morning practice, as the fog rolls in. And all is a complete array of high-quality yoga props.
