Moinhos Velhos

"One of the Ten best Detox Retreats in the world."

Sunday Times January 23rd 2016


For the past 30 years we have facilitated our concept of a detox juice fasting retreat for Body - Mind - Spirit.

27 years ago we were guided to establish Moinhos Velhos in the Algarve, Portugal, where we have fine-tuned our programme to achieve a complete cleansing and detoxification on all levels, Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual.

We have tried many types of fast. The grape fast, the rice fast, the water fast and the living on prana and light fast (100 days). We have also experimented with a multitude of detoxing products. We know what works to achieve the optimum detox.

7 and 10 day programs

Moinhos Velhos is a tranquil valley 14 km from Lagos. We are situated in a nature reserve, away from the traditional tourist areas and we are energized by a multitude of tiny crystals in the surrounding hills. Here we go to bed with the silence of the stars at night and wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning.

We have 7 and 10 day programmes

For a more extended fast, book 2 or more programmes "Back to Back"

7 and 10 day programs

Participating in a Moinhos Velhos Detox Fasting Programme could change your life

There is a jug of organic orange juice in the morning at 10.00 then 3 other juices throughout the day and all the broth you want in the evening. The powders and herbs actually make your stomach swell somewhat and the probability is that you will not feel hungry. This surprises many people.

Fresh Carrot Juice Fasting

Sometimes the produce for a  juice, selected  for cleansing and nutritional purposes, may be out of season. For the purist, we will then offer an alternative organic juice.
