We had such a great time at Free Spirit House - i did the yoga classes with Rita which were the perfect blissful morning rejuvenation, and my boyfriend did the surfing lessons

The house is beautiful and the perfect relaxing environment close to the beaches and Cascais city centre. Thank you Rita for being a great host!

Emily Beesley 5 / 5

I stayed with Rita at Free Spirit for 3 nights and it was perfect! The yoga classes were a beautiful blend - challenging but still super relaxing - just what you need after a

urf lesson! The house is clean & beautiful, it's less like a hostel and more of a relaxed home vibe. We went for an amazing dinner all together and I met some great friends whilst staying there. Gorgeous quiet space to relax and enjoy Cascais - would love to come back!

Konrad Kirner 5 / 5

I was staying in Rita's house for a couple of nights and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful houses I have been so far. Rita really tries to make everyone feel good

nd happy. The place is super bright, spacious and clean and comes with a nice area for yoga/workouts, a pool and a BBQ area. I spent every day working with my laptop from the living room table and that worked our great. Other people also got some work done and I think the place is perfect for a combination of leisure time and and some productive hours here and there. I will be back :)
