5+ reasons why you should register for a Coworkvilla retreat

 

Coworking is all about community. One that inspires, and provides opportunities to learn from others. In that spirit we’re offering very special prices for our inaugural event.

Join us from October 28 – November 4, 2016 with prices starting at €60 (£52) per night.

Stay in a beautiful villa with views of the sea and countryside. WiFi for work, a heated pool for relaxing…

And if that is not enough, here are 5 more reasons why you should join us.

A place to unplug

What sets us apart from other coworking retreats is first and foremost the location. Set on the south coast of the Natural Park of the Vicentine Coast in the Western Algarve in a sea and countryside setting, Coworkvilla is lucky enough to offer their guests a unique location. Due to very strict building regulations, the unspoiled Western Algarve has escaped the monstrosity of mass tourism. Instead, it attracts those seeking authenticity, secluded bays and vast empty beaches, protected nature and the charm of white-washed villages both by the sea and in the serene hinterland. The peacefulness of the landscapes, the smell of the sea and the blue skies will help you both recharge, find focus and inspiration for your work and personal projects.

A place to holiday

The Germans say “first work, then pleasure”. Others may prefer it the other way round. We’ll treat you to an unforgettable stand-up paddle boarding tour along the beautiful coast so you can use other limps than just your fingers (on the laptop). But apart from that, at Coworkvilla we let you choose how to plan your days. And when you are ready to enjoy the holiday side of the stay, we’ll be here to make sure you’ll have the best time of your life. A massage on site? A surf lesson on the west coast? Sightseeing? An unforgettable mountainbike tour in the hinterland and along the rugged coast? Not a problem! We know the best people and prices in the area so you can be sure to make the most of the activity. We’ll organise it back to front so you can focus on your work (or tan?) instead off spending time researching and planning activities.
And if you’re more of a beach and book bum, we fully support it if you just want to laze in the hammock, relax in the jaccuzi whilst enjoying the seaviews or tan by the heated pool (even in the winter!)

A place to get work done

Coworkvilla provides you with the perfect setting to connect with other passionate people. Whether you just want to take your work to a different scene, are looking for a space where you can solidify your startup idea with the valuable input of other like-minded professionals or want to focus on a personal project you never seem to take the time for back home, this is the perfect place to be creative and productive. Here you can brainstorm with like-minded coworkers from different professional backgrounds and nationalities, share knowledge and skills and have inspiring conversations.

A place to indulge

The Portuguese like to eat and spend long hours at the table talking. And at Cowokvilla we follow this way of life by offering a mouthwatering welcome BBQ, healthy, filling breakfasts to feed the mind to get you started for your day of coworking and activities, a mid-week Portuguese tapas dinner, wine & cheese sunset session on the breathtaking cliffs of the west coast and a surprise Portuguese good-bye dinner. We will also have two nights booked in some of the best Restaurants in the area so you can taste some more delicious specialties prepared by local chefs.
Ah, and you may find some fresh Portuguese pasteis de nata (custard tarts) on the kitchen table in the afternoon. We look forward to spending many hours at the table with you over nice food and wine and in good company. Isn’t this how the best ideas come about?

A place with a mild climate

We hate to rub it in, but when most countries in the Northern Hemisphere start to get cold and rainy, the Western Algarve, bordered by the south and west coast, continues to boast a mild, mostly sunny climate throughout autumn, winter and spring. This is when we hold our coworking retreats so you can escape the bad weather and soak up on some vitamin D. Winters in the Algarve are perfect for picnics on the beach and instead of snow, the countryside is covered in the white almond blossom in February. In the evening, we’ll settle down in front of the crackling fire, maybe with a nice port, chocolate and a game of cards? Our retreat running from the 28th of October to the 4th of November 2016 will be held during the Portuguese Indian summer. So make sure you pack your swimming suit together with you laptop, tablet and smartphone!
