Principles: Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreats are developed in alignment with agile/Scrum values curated to maximize your experience and network connections.
  • Retreat - The event creates time and space for focused learning and growth.
  • Scrum - Learning is done using an empirical framework called Scrum.
  • Teams - Teams are the heart of Scrum and are a key differentiator at the Retreats.
  • Deep - Teams go deep into single topics, rather than covering many broad areas.
  • Long - Learning, collaboration, and relationships continue long after the event.
  • Shared learning - The event is designed for deep, collaborative, shared learning.
  • Two sleeps - Connections are made when our brains are quiet; the two nights of sleep allow for creative idea formation.

About the Venue

The Portugal Agile Coaching Retreat 2021 will be held at PESTANA SINTRA GOLF HOTEL in Sintra, located in the mountains and countryside of Sintra, about 30 minutes’ drive from Lisbon airport. The Pestana Sintra is a 4-star hotel located in Quinta da Beloura in Sintra, a luxurious area surrounded by lush gardens with an 18-hole golf course only 10 minutes away from the town of Sintra. The hotel offers a Spa with sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and Turkish bath.

Uber prices are estimated around 25 to 30 euros and official airport taxis around 40 to 50 euros door-to-door. If you prefer to take public transport (takes about 1.5 hours in total but is much cheaper), Metro and train journeys are also available and the services run regularly. You will have to take the Metro from Lisbon Airport to Restauradores Metro station and then change to the overground Rossio train station and take the train towards Sintra. You need to get off at Rio de Mouro train station and take a short taxi ride from Rio de Mouro station to the hotel.
