YEOTOWN MADEIRA: The Island Home of Complete Wellbeing…
For a few years now, we’ve been on the lookout for the perfect island location for a second Yeotown Health Retreat. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, given that quite a few boxes need to be ticked to make the cut as an ideal backdrop for our award-winning 5-day signature wellness programme. From stunning, invigorating hikes, to fresh produce, clement weather, an ocean, accessibility, rustic-chic accommodation and of course, the most important part – the right people, many elements have to be present for us to deem it Yeotown worthy!
As luck (and a pandemic!) would have it, we quite unexpectedly found ourselves on the stunning island of Madeira towards the end of 2020. We were blown away at the sheer beauty of this little ocean gem and how it lends itself so perfectly to curating optimum health and wellbeing in both body and spirit. The ‘Island of Eternal Spring’ or the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’ are two of the more common terms used to describe this uniquely lush subtropical haven. But more importantly, we are so excited to now call it home to Yeotown Madeira!
Yeotown Madeira: The Island Home of Complete Wellbeing, is easily accessible by many countries in Europe, and just a little over 3hrs direct flights from most UK airports. We are excited to be launching in a gorgeous, sunny South West facing, 16th century Portuguese Quinta (farmhouse) set amongst a beautiful organic vineyard overlooking the ocean. With spacious stone walled cottages complete with wood fireplaces and ocean views, the rustic-chic accommodation is decorated with colourful, traditional Portuguese décor to uplift the spirit and senses. A copy-paste of our much-heralded Yeotown programme, our island retreat will follow the same life-affirming schedule of activities as our Devon space with added touches and sessions unique to island living and the rich Madeiran culture. This will include incredible coastal and mountain hiking above the clouds, daily yoga at sunrise, breath and movement at sunset, functional fitness sessions, meditation, healthy cooking workshop, nutritional talks, bio-hacking discussions, swimming (both ocean and pool) and our signature variety of massages each full day.
Our 5 day/5 night Yeotown Madeira programme runs from Tuesday to Saturday. Arrival is on Monday and a complimentary meal will be provided in your room on arrival day. If you are arriving at lunchtime then we will give you a list of recommended local restaurants for dinner.
The Yeotox programme starts on Tuesday morning and finishes after lunch on Saturday at 2.30 in time for late afternoon flights back home. Prices begin at €3500 per person all-inclusive. The cost of the programme includes all meals, fresh juices and tonics, snacks, accommodation, a full schedule of activities and daily massages. Does not include flights or taxis to the retreat. Extra therapies such as Acupuncture, Facials, Osteopathy, Iridology Analysis, Personalised Functional Nutrition Plans, Reiki, Crystal Therapy, Dolphin Swimming and more are available for an extra fee for those who wish to customise their experience.
