Retreat Centre & B&B

In her new centre in the beautiful Algarve region of Portugal, Solara has once again followed guidance to create a portal in order to attract Star-Soul Family together.  Solara, her partner Gino & her soul-brother Itzak have lovingly restored an old farm house in a stunning hillside location with wonder-ful views. The energy in the valley is crystal clear - the perfect place to recharge and reconnect to your path of awakening. 

The retreat centre is available to hire from May 2022. It consists of 7 guest bedrooms (2 en-suite rooms still under construction), 5 guest bathrooms, a shaded yoga roof terrace, beautiful meditation/workshop room, a covered  outside dining area with views across the valley & a large indoor yoga shala in development. The gorgeous salt-water pool has built-in benches for meditation & healing, wonderful for pranayama practise and flotation. There are chill-out areas throughout the garden which includes a gorgeous pond with a cascade and a walking spiral. 




The beaches of the Eastern Algarve are world-renowned, the weather is one of the best in the whole of Europe,  and the food and natural produce is delicious. There are beautiful walks in all directions from the house, interesting local restaurants, and the famous Ria Formosa protected coastline nature reserve where you can catch a short ferry across to an island with lovely  beaches and seafood restaurants.

  • Meditation/Pranayama/Guidance classes with Solara An-Ra, a world renowned channel for the Star Councils of Light.

  • Spiritual Guidance Readings with Itzak: 1 hour ~ €70

  • Trips with Gino if you have no car: Visit a waterfall, go paddle-boarding on a wild lake, visit the island of Armona for a romantic lunch or travel to Portimao to walk through the caves of the most famous Algarve beach, Praia da Rocha. 

  • b&b guests: optional dinners from Itzak: €18 pp per meal
