Venue Highlights

Quinta Da Calma opened its doors over 35 years ago as one of the first ever yoga and holistic health retreats in Europe. The host, Sylta Kalmbach, was a pioneer in the world of wellness by showing her guests how they could heal themselves through the food they ate and by leading a healthy lifestyle.

Located within 20 acres of untouched nature and beautiful umbrella pine trees. A place to relax and connect with nature, only a 15m drive from the Faro Airport and the stunning white sand beaches of the Algarve.


Room types:
- Buganvilia (twin rooms with shared bathroom) very affordable rooms and are in a chalet-style wooden building. There are 4 single rooms with 1 single beds at 15 m2 and 4 double rooms with 2 single beds at 20 m2. Two Buganvillia rooms have a shared shower and toilet. If you like to share with a friend, but you both want to have a separate room, than this set up could be ideal. The Buganvilia rooms are quite basic and, due to the wooden construction, do not have great sound proofing but provide a good value option for those on a budget. There is a (mini) fridge, a kettle and a selection of herbal teas in the Corridor (shared by 2 rooms). There is no airconditioning, but there is a fan in each room.

- Jacaranda (twin rooms with private bathroom) 3 comfortable Jacaranda rooms, each measuring 25 m2 and with a private shower. The rooms are comfortable and include 2 single beds (for single or twin occupancy or they can can be pushed together to make a double). There is a separate toilet and also a separate shower room with a stand up shower unit. The room has a fridge, a kettle a selection of teas in the room. There is a small balcony outside with 2 chairs and a table.

- Rondette (cottages that have a separate living area, bedroom, rain shower and kitchenette with a fridge, hob unit and kettle. The bathroom has a stand up shower units (no bath).
