This retreat is designed to provide our team with the opportunity to step away from our daily routines and focus on building stronger connections with one another face to face.
By participating in team-building activities and workshops, we will develop a deeper understanding of each other's strengths, challenges, and goals. We will also have the chance to learn new skills, share experiences, and create lasting memories together.
Ericeira, Portugal is the perfect location for this retreat. With its stunning beaches, beautiful coastline, and delicious local cuisine, it provides the perfect setting for our team to relax, recharge, and connect with one another. We can't wait to see you there!
Ericeira is a beautiful Portuguese fishing village, perfect for those who want to be surrounded by nature and with no city distractions. Everything you need is within walking distance, and it has some of the best seafood around at local authentic restaurants. You can enjoy great team building activities like biking, hiking, the beautiful coast or surfing.
Ready for your next beach meeting? Ericeira is the place.
Ericeira is a charming coastal town with a vibrant arts and crafts scene, featuring many local artisans who create beautiful ceramics, textiles, and other handmade goods. Visitors can immerse themselves in the town's culture by exploring the local markets and shops, where they'll find unique and authentic souvenirs to take home.
The town's cuisine is heavily influenced by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, with seafood being a staple ingredient in many traditional dishes. Visitors can savor grilled sardines, octopus salad, a variety of fish soups, seafood rice, and fried squid - all of which are popular dishes in the region.
In addition to its seafood, Ericeira is also famous for its delicious bread, which is baked in wood-fired ovens, giving it a unique and irresistible flavor. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the queijadas de Sintra, a local pastry made with cheese, sugar, and eggs that's a popular treat in the area.
We chose some exciting team activities for you to participate in during scheduled time slots. You can sign up for only one activity per day, but if you're keen for more, you can always organize extra stuff yourself outside of work hours. Note that some activities may be subject to change depending on the weather conditions.
