“It’s been a wonderful week of yoga and fitness retreat! Wild view retreat is a perfect place, very relaxing and incredibly beautiful! I would highly recommend it to everyone!”

I cannot recommend this retreat enough

“UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL RETREAT! Gorgeous and comfy accommodation, delicious and nutritious juices/soups, fabulous yoga and fitness classes, exquisite infinity pool and surrounding nature. But the BEST part is coming home and having someone stop you on the street saying you look ten years younger and ten pounds lighter. I cannot recommend this retreat enough. Give your body, mind and soul a true rest and you will come home stronger, happier, calmer. Oh, my skin is finally spot-free for the first time in my life! I didn’t think I could do a week without solid food and with so much exercise but I did and actually enjoyed it! If you’re on your own – you will love meeting like-minded people. Thank you Andrew, Erika and the entire staff at Wild View.”

A 6 star experience !

“I felt 10/10 relaxed, refreshed and blissed on on my return from the beautiful Wild View Retreat. WIth no prior experience of retreats or juice fasts, I arrived with no expectations and an open mind. The site is absolutely gorgeous, completely surrounded by nature on all sides and lovely calming textiles. I loved being able to see the view of the hills through the sliding doors from my bed. The fast itself was so much easier than I expected – the juices and soups were delicious and I wasn’t hungry at all. I had every intention of participating in all of the fitness and yoga activities but was thoroughly distracted by the divine infinity pool (though most days I did manage morning yoga followed by a hike before the sun got too hot). The vibe was relaxed and supportive, and I learnt a lot from the nutrition talks as well as the other lovely people on the retreat. Weight loss wasn’t my primary motivation but I must say it’s the easiest half a stone I’ve ever lost!.”

A week of pure pleasure 

“A week of pure pleasure with none of the usual guilt that I usually have after a holiday. Instead I am noticeable pounds lighter and feeling refreshed, calm and strong. The juicer is on order and I intend to continue with many of changes suggested by the informative nutrition talks. Wild View Retreat is exactly what is says…a remote place in the mountains but it is also spectacularly beautiful as well as peaceful. The retreat is friendly and well run with luxurious attention to detail. The advice is given in a supportive and flexible way…I chose
not to take part in the exercise classes due to health issues and instead used the time to rest in different ways: snoozing on the hammock or reading in the shade by the beautiful infinity pool with only the swallows for company. This approach and the overall programme and routine really helps to bring the group together into a supportive unit. I have already booked my return visit.”

The chill out times were great, sitting by a gorgeous infinity pool!

“I did not quite know what to expect, but I was looking forward to my first detox juicing retreat. I was one of the first lot of people to their new venture, and all I can say is you would not have known it had just opened the doors. We were all welcomed warmly and professionally. The place looks so beautiful and designed with style and comfort. Hanging around Wild View is like hanging around a second home.
I slept in the Yurt. For anyone who likes a little bit of glamping adventure, this was a great choice and super cute.
I was concerned I would get bored of the juicing detox, or crave my food. I felt the whole week was structured well and the juices were more than enough to keep me satisfied. I will be honest and say that I did not have to many side affects apart from mild headaches and lethargy, but that is personal. The classes and instructors were great! Professional, interesting and fun.
The chill out times were great, sitting by a gorgeous infinity pool.
In the afternoon and evenings our time was filled with nutritional education. Andrew would give a talk during the day, and after soup we sat to inspiring documentary’s.
Everyone is very supportive. I had a wonderful time and look forward to another visit.”

WOW! What a place 

“WOW! WHAT A PLACE. I’ve just returned from a week at Wild View Retreat and it’s just the most beautiful place. Set in the hills of Portugal – it’s definitely unique when it comes to retreats.

The rooms are carefully thought out with everything you need to make your stay perfect. The retreat itself is just stunning, with whitewashed walls, hammocks to relax and a gorgeous main manor house, for everyone to gather in. It’s a special place for sure. I did a 7 day juicing and yoga retreat. Three large fresh juices per day, with beautiful meditation and yoga sessions daily.

Plus there’s nutritional talks and full support from Andrew, Erika and the staff there. If you’d like to get away and have some true ‘you’ time for a change this is the place to go. And it’s only 35mins transfer from Faro airport – it’s unique and amazing. And the infinity pool is just fantastic.”

It’s Priceless – I’m hooked!

“Just got home from the most amazing week at Wild View Retreat, after a week of juicing in the most relaxing and supportive environment, I feel energised, strong and super healthy. The whole place has been finished to an extremely high standard, the accommodation was spotless and excellent value for money, they have thought of everything and it even smelt divine. The group was great – very chilled and friendly and juices and soups kept me going throughout – I think I’m hooked!”
