What is Petit-Hem?

Petit-Hem is our beloved project about leaving the stress and buzz of city life, for an easy living lifestyle in Algarve, Portugal. Here at Petit-Hem we offer modern accommodation in the serene countryside that we combine with yoga classes, healthy food and fun activities. 


More about our retreats...


In todays world where everything is moving at a fast pace it is easy to forget to slow down and find time to rest. At Petit-Hem we give you the opportunity to get away from everyday life to relax and restore energy.


While some yoga retreats can feel strict and generalised - we like to take a more personal and relaxed approach. See it as a light-version of a yoga retreat, where we focus on yoga, mediation and healthy food but also leave plenty of free time for you to enjoy your holiday whether its relaxing by the pool or exploring the coast.


Our retreats are entirely private, you and your group will have private access to the property, accommodation and the yoga classes. This way we can ensure that the daily schedule, menu and activities are personalised for you.

Who are we?

We are a team of 2, my partner and I. Having lived all around Europe; Sweden, France, Spain, and Germany, we now settled down in the Algarve. After working for big corporates and living the city life, we wanted a change. We wished for a slower life, closer to nature, with a bigger focus on the well-being of ourselves and others.


Come and enjoy a proper break, a break where you can feel the benefits long after you return home.
