Cycling in Portugal

Posted on: 28th-September-2009 by Martin

I received this email, if anybody needs an end of season holiday...


I obtained your email from the British Cycling website.  I hope you don’t mind me contacting you.

My name is Mark Sewell and I am a keen cyclist, both road and mountain biking. I belong to a club in Sussex called Forest Row Rutters.

I live in Northern Portugal most of the time with my partner and we run a “holiday retreat” called Yavanna.  People visit for their holidays, and also for various retreats, workshops and activity weeks.

I run dedicated cycling holidays several times over the year. I would now like to offer Yavanna to cycle clubs for club-dedicated training camps, club trips, etc.

I know the mountains, beaches areas and the “Costa Verde” region inside out and know a number of fantastic rides. It is a completely undiscovered cycling heaven. I have a support vehicle, mechanic facilities and a workshop etc. etc.

We can provide fully catered cycling club breaks with plenty of hearty, local, mainly organic food.

You will get an idea if you click here:  Plenty of photos, videos and stats.  Also lots of other pages and information about Yavanna.  

And there are many independent (non cycling) reviews here: which give a good idea of Yavanna itself.

If you would like to know more, I am happy to discuss capacity, your needs, pricing, etc. over the phone.

(P.S. I have one place left on a cycle holiday running next week if anyone in your club would like a “taster”)

Thanks for you time, Mark
