How to get to our Yoga Retreat Villa
From Faro by rental car
From Faro by shuttle
The Meka Yoga villa is located right at the National Park Costa Vicentina, Europe's most astonishing nature reserve along the South-West coast of Portugal. Between the villa and the Atlantic Ocean there is only Nature. Green hills, steep cliffs and deserted beaches.
The closest airport is Faro airport. From there it is about 70 minutes by car. To get to our retreat location in the village ‘Vila do Bispo’, we advise you to rent a car on the airport (www.cardelmar.com). Otherwise you can book your transfer to Vila do Bispo with one of the airport shuttle service companies, for instance Greenbus, and let them drop you off at the yoga villa or at ‘Hotel Mira Sagres’ (which is in Vila do Bispo) which is next to the church. We can pick you up from the church or from the bus stop in Vila do Bispo at 16:00. Just send us a text to confirm you are waiting to be picked up so we will arrange that: 00351 911869611.
The shuttle companies ask for our address. As we don't have a street name, you give Vila do Bispo and our GPS location: 37.085157, -8.922333 in the address field.
If you come by rental car and your GPS system doesn’t recognize the last part of the road and show you just a green field, don’t worry, there is a road :-))
Public transport connections are available as well. From Faro Airport you can take a taxi to the bus/train station (approx. E10,-). Then you take either take the bus or the train to Lagos which is a small town 20 km from the Yoga Villa.
In Lagos you take a taxi or bus to Vila do Bispo. We will receive you from the bus stop.
