After I reserve my spot when is the remaining balance due?
I will contact you within 48hrs of your booking to schedule your remaining payments which you can do in one or two instalments.
How will I get from the airport to the Estalagem?
You will be offered a complementary shuttle service from, and to the airport. Please send your flight details to email@example.com so that we can organise your transfer.
When should I arrive/leave?
You want to arrive January 25 and leave February 1 2016. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to extend your stay.
What’s not included in the retreat pricing?
I have a roomate, what happens next?
Once both of you have booked for the double room option via the website’s booking system send me your details at email@example.com so that I can place you both on the same room.
Can I book for a double room if I don’t have a roommate?
I encourage you to find your own so that your room is guaranteed, however, and if you don’t mind being paired up I’ll be happy to help you coordinate your stay. Please note that this will depend on overall bookings.
In case I'm unable to find you a roomie you'll be given the option to upgrade to a Single and pay for the difference.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for this.
I have never done Pilates before, can I still come?
My sessions cater for different levels and abilities and I had beginners attending previous retreats. Please let me know in advance so that I can adjust accordingly.
Do I have to attend all Pilates sessions?
No session is mandatory. While I recommend you to attend all so as to get the most out of your experience, what is most important to us is for you enjoy your time during your stay in Madeira, trust your body and honour your needs.
What do I need to bring with me?
Lose, comfortable clothing for your Pilates sessions. Optional: bathing suit & towel, sunglasses, walking shoes and flashlight (for optional walks), camera.
What will the weather be like?
Madeira has many microclimates but you can expect an average high of 19C low of 16C in January. Ponta do Sol tends to be sunnier and warmer than other places in the island.
Can I bring my family & children with me?
Depending on room availability you can bring your spouse with you even if he/she is not a participant of the retreat for a discounted rate. Please contact me at email@example.com to discuss your options.
Since children won’t be allowed during our Pilates sessions I am currently researching childcare options. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
