Our mission is: FOR YOU TO FEEL FREE AND PART OF OUR FAMILY WHILE PROVIDING YOU A HIGH-QUALITY STAY AT A FAIR PRICE.
At FREE Sprit we do what we like!!!! We are Free Spirits!!!!! Whether you seek a place to relax or bar and music, barbecue or a cold beer you can find always a spot for you at our House as we respect each other.
We are flexible, we love the human beings and give attention to every need.
We interact with people from all the world, different ages and backgrounds, FREE and in search of new horizons. We have passion for the yoga and surf culture of living the Now and be happy Now! Employees, guests and the chilled and relaxed atmosphere of the house suggests a fraternal union more like a happy family… everyone has a smile and brings the best in them. We want you to feel healthy in your body and soul but also cared and loved….and that’s why you will come back because you will feel like you have a second home and family.
We differentiate ourselves from others because we love to host and we are very good at everything that we offer you. Free Sprit House is born out of love and passion for the offered activities. Rita, the House host and owner, has travelled/lived and worked around the world, for more than 10 years, to kite surf, surf while teaching yoga in very renowned places and she is one of the Yoga Teachers at Free Sprit House. She also rock climbs and loves to hike, to commute in bicycles and toys like drones, one-wheel boards, skate boards, darts, slack lines…so all those are available for you at the house.

For sunrise we take you down by the seaside or we will do it in our garden. Our lessons are a mixture of Hatha Vinyasa, Kundalini and Yin Yang yoga and our instructors are highly qualified with yoga alliance certifications taken in India and Bali and they will help you to develop your practice.
