Do the rooms differ from each other?

Each of the room is different. Even though we tried to keep the same line every room has it´s different shape, windows and size. From an equipment perspective they are kept similar. Each of them has really good matrasses with topper.

The difference between category A and B is based on different aspects. Two rooms of category A are slightly bigger than all the others. The other two rooms of category A have either a big window with nice view direction Monchique or a small private terrace with value view.

Four of the rooms are accessible via the main house and 4 have a separate entrance from outside which therefor have more privacy.

Is the teacher staying for free?

To make the yoga shala free of charge we ask for the teacher 50% of the regular price for a room. If the teacher would like to stay for free, the house has to be fully booked or he/she can stay in beautiful bell tent. It is nicely equipped with the same matrasses of the house for 2 persons. One looks down on the tent from the house on a separate terrace. From there you have a beautiful view to Monchique. Close to the pool area are showers and toilets. The tent is free of charge.
