About Wild View Retreat
Wild View Retreat has arisen from the ruins of an abandoned mountain village of Corgas Bravas, in the foothills of the Algarve in Portugal.
Originally built by a Portuguese Army General in 1898, the ‘Manor House’ and surrounding ruins have undergone a 2 year restoration and redevelopment project, transforming the iconic setting into a bespoke wellness retreat.
Wild View Retreat is defined by its spectacular uninterrupted 360° views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains, a Zona De Intervenção Florestal protected for its natural beauty and famous Portuguese cortiça (cork) trees.
There are no cars, no roads, no buildings, no neighbours. Nothing but wilderness and nature. Nothing to hear but the birds and the wind. Nothing to do but restore and relax the body, mind and soul. The retreat can be privately hired for exclusive use, please see our dedicated retreat venue hire page for more info.
Wild View Retreat typically offers around 12 week long retreats a year. Check out our schedule dates to see what is on offer as well as our two dedicated retreat page: juice and soup fasting detox retreats and plant food and yoga retreats. The retreat prices are based on the type of retreat you chose and the accommodation you prefer (sharing or single occupancy). On our retreat all guests will be away from the pressures of modern society, isolated in nature embarking on a programme of detoxification, wellness and fitness, working towards restoring health and balance in our lives. You’ll return home feeling brand new and fantastic!
