Getting there

Check-In 24.9. between 15 and 17 o'clock

Our retreat villa is located 30 km north-west of Lisbon. From Germany there is the possibility to travel by train: via Paris to Hendaye and from there by night train to Lisbon (round trip usually around 300€). Alternatively, there are regular flights to Lisbon from various airports in Germany. Usually 9-12 weeks before departure is the best time to book a flight to Lisbon. Depending on what you plan to do besides the retreat, it may be worthwhile to book a rental car (in Portugal usually only around 10€/day for smaller models).

If you are traveling from Lisbon by public transport, it is best to take the (green) metro to the station ``Campo Grande`` - from there a bus leaves regularly directly to Ericeira. From the bus station in Ericeira you can easily and cheaply get to us by cab, Bolt or Uber. Of course you could also take a Bolt or Uber straight from Lisbon to our retreat villa as well.


Check-out 1.10. until 11 o'clock
