Florian & Julia, founder of the Retreat Oasis Portugal

Dear moms, dear dads!

Hey, we’re Julia & Florian, together we founded the Retreat Oasis Portugal to create an oasis of relaxation and connection, especially for families.

As busy parents of a 7 year old daughter, we know the challenges that family life can throw on these days. When it comes to reconciling job, family, hobbies and the normal madness of life without neglecting yourself or others.

We know from experience that finding real quality time with loved ones can sometimes be difficult. We have been able to experience for ourselves what a difference mindful communication, recognizing and naming needs or feelings when dealing with children and partners. Hallelujah! 😉

In recent years we have had the privilege of getting to know so many powerful tools of inner growth to personally develop! What we particularly notice is:

What we set an example as parents – integrate our children as the “new normal”.
That’s why we want to give you tools for even joy, development, feeling good, mindful communication and resilience in a playful, fun and easy way.

By the way, we love water sports, the sea, but also the mountains and lush forests. Therefore, the area around Praia Grande in Sintra magically attracted us to realise our heart project, the Retreat Oasis Portugal right here, .
Praia Grande is a beautiful beach on the Portuguese coast surrounded by stunning cliffs. The location is ideal to escape the stress of everyday life and spend some relaxed family time.

Book a very special family holiday today, which as a family retreat can change your life so wonderfully positively. We look forward to welcoming you and your loved ones.

For maximum relaxation and connection, however, it is best if 2 accompanying adults are traveling with the children. Take grandma or your best friend with you.

Blended families are also very welcome.
If you, as a mother with children, know another mother with children, for example, you can also take part in the retreat together like a big family.

What age of children is the retreat suitable for?
The optimal age for children participating in the Family Magic Retreat is 6 to 15 years. The workshops and activities are exclusively adapted to the age of the children, so that our young guests feel really comfortable and addressed and experience maximum enjoyment. If the children are under the age of 3, a loving babysitter can be booked for the core workshop times (in the morning) for an additional charge. In this way, both parents can attend the program items with their full attention.
Can I participate without children?
The retreat is structured in such a way that families and their children are the target group. If you are a single parent with no children interested in a retreat at Retreat-Oasis, we recommend checking out our Retreats. Feel free to contact us personally.
