What we are about: Our mission is sharing this beautiful part of the world (the south west coast of Portugal) and our passions (outdoor adventure, surfing, yoga, fitness, fun, and friends!) with like minded people. Our goal is to provide guests from around the world with what they are seeking during this holiday. Be it nice waves and surf, relaxing days on different beaches, quiet moments of yoga and meditation, or a more social experience meeting new people and listening to local musicians....we aim at connecting people with what they are looking for!
A little about the area: We are on the south west coast in the Algarve region in a small fisherman town called Arrifana. The area is a natural park with beautiful landscapes and cliffs. It has loads of surfers coming in the summer months. There are beautiful hikes (the Rota Vincentina), many wonderful beaches, waves, and great food.
About US: Colin has been running Living Lodge for 6 seasons now. I am a new addition as this has just been my first summer at the lodge! I am a Yoga teacher from the United States but I have spent much time living in other parts of the world. Before coming to Portugal I was in Thailand for the last 4 years. I love Yoga and Spirituality is a big part of my inner world. I have recently caught the surf bug and in general I am a very active person (running, surfing, wake board, skiing...etc) Colin is from Germany and the lodge has really been born out of his vision. He feel in love with the area and wanted to create a place for other people to enjoy a place that he likes so much. He loves to Surf and ride the Enduro Bikes. He also likes to spend time Paddle Boarding, Fishing, or on a boat. We have 2 dogs that live with us and the 4 of us love time spent walking and enjoying the landscape.
