Ceratonia Herb Gardens

The retreat will take place at Ceratonia Gardens, a centre for healing and education in the heart of the Algarve.

The centre is run by herbalist Daisy Mae and her partner Corey, who have lent their hearts and souls to the building of Ceratonia – and it has paid off in the form of one of the most peaceful and welcoming havens you will ever hear tell of.

The centre boasts six bedrooms with communal bathroom facilities, as well as eight acres of lovingly cultivated herbal gardens, among which you may camp in your own tent or in the centre’s tipi. The training room is light and amply cushioned, opening onto the gardens to absorb the joyful vitality of the plants.

Delicious and nutritious meals are provided as part of the retreat, and at Ceratonia there is always something on the table which has come from the gardens. Enjoy communal dining on the deck, breathing in serenity from your surroundings. See more events in this venue
