13th -18th September 2018 - Olhao, Algarve

We invite you to join Nas and Angela, the founders of MY Food Lifestyle, as their guests, on an exclusive MY Food Retreat, A Heathy Haven.

"A place of relaxation, rest and tranquillity - your haven"

Give yourself time to step away from your hectic daily routine to experience how the combined effects of eating well, enjoying time to be mindful, whilst energising your body and soul can truly enrich your life.

Join us on a luxury five night retreat, based in a stunning, blissful and tranquil home in the heart of Olhao, Algarve.

A Healthy Haven combines the pleasure of having time for you with learning about food and lifestyle in a friendly and relaxed environment, a balanced approach to life; nutrition, movement and lifestyle.  

Each day you will be treated to three delicious, healthy and nutritious meals using locally sourced ingredients. You may choose to enjoy daily meditation, tailored exercise, one of our handpicked tours, simply relax with a book, or arrange a treatment in one of the private spa rooms.  

To enhance your enjoyment of food, we will also host cookery demonstrations, leaving you inspired with confidence, knowledge and an array of recipes.   The retreat package includes everything, and the freedom to choose how you wish to spend your time.

“True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.” W Von Humboldt

Enjoy a healthy and nutritious diet of freshly prepared food, created by our finest chef Wayne, and beautifully presented for your health and pleasure. We will cater for your dietary requirements, preparing an array of vegetarian, vegan and pescatarian meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A few hours each afternoon can be spent at one of our cookery demonstrations, hosted by Nas. Here we will share with you some exclusive recipes together with some MY Food favourites and teach you how to prepare delicious meals to maintain your healthy lifestyle.
