Mariposa Retreat Centre, Tavira, Algarve

Monte Mariposa is a magical and peaceful place. Wandering around this Garden of Eden is enough to be touched by the healing energy of the centre.

It has a wide range of facilities indoor and outdoors enabling the course to be run under a blue sky and temperatures between 15 °C and 22 °C in April. The beach is only 15 minutes away, a great programme for free days.

The nearest airport is Faro, only 25 minutes away and the nearest village of Santa Catarina has local shops including artisan products and a post office. Beautiful Tavira is the nearest town with traditional whitewashed houses and the stunning river Gilao floodlit at night. The beach nearby has a sweet train which takes you from the road to the beach.
