Feedback from July Fasting and Detox Group


There probably is no other place on this planet with the same healing energies as Moinhos Velhos.
This is a place to Purify, Energise and Regenerate. (Don't panic! There is Satellite Wi-Fi in every room except yoga)

Participating in a Moinhos Velhos
Juice Fasting and Detox Program could change your life.

In the book "The Transformation Power of FASTING" by S H Buhner,
Moinhos Velhos is recommended as one of the four retreat centers worldwide
for an optimum fasting program.

This is one of the few, world class fasting spas, and the best deal.

I spent another 10 days at Moinhos Velhos after my first trip nearly 9 years ago. Back then my experience was so profound, I wanted every year to return. This time I flew all the way from Australia for the trip as there is nothing nearby me that can rival this place Janni, Frank and Anna Korine are truly magical people that have continued to restore and keep this place in its true finest. I undertook a 10 day juice fast, combined with Liver and Colon Cleanse. The same as the first time but I was again overwhelmed at the success of it once again!
I would highly recommend it thank you to the fabulous team and helpers that once again inspired me to live a more plant based lifestyle and return again - this time I hope sooner than last time. xo Kat

Room Tip: All rooms are good, in fact I had a cottage and I could have easily had a single room on its on

"Lighter, healthier and energized after two peaceful weeks at Moinhos Velhos” Reviewed 28 February 2013

Tonight is my last night of my two week juice fast at Moinhos Velhos. I feel healthy and energized. I’ve been drinking only juice and vegetable broth for two weeks and I never felt hungry. Moinhos Velhos is the perfect spot for a practical, busy Mom to get two weeks of peace and quiet, give her body a reboot, and lose a few pounds (more than a few) in the process. I feel better, look better, my skin is fabulous and I’m ready to head back to life!

Frank, Anne Karine and Janni are so knowledgeable and helpful but in a warm, quiet, confident, helpful way. There is no big production here, no attempt to sell you on a lifestyle , no faux medical setting. They approach fasting as a simple and natural process, not as a medical event.

Go to Moinhos Velhos if you can, you will be very glad you did.

Really excellent experience, completely positive and wonderful, I have loved it and I am
so pleased that I came.
All the staff are so welcoming and kind and really wonderful and the place is so
beautiful and very special.
I really hope to be here again. Thank you so much for al
