Are you in search for an ideal location immersed in the beauty of nature
to hold your next retreat, course, or event?
From our lush eco pods to our natural swimming pool, we offer all the luxuries while maintaining a low carbon footprint. Our off grid eco lodge and retreat venue is in the foothills of the Serra da Estrela of Central Portugal, an area of rich Portuguese Culture. We provide fresh meals using ingredients from our own garden whenever possible, and if not, we source the most organic and local options.
Meet Lily and Lola, our dwarf goats! Maintaining our permaculture principles, they eat the weeds and provide us with milk to make fresh cheese. We have pigs that enjoy roaming freely down by the river, and chickens for fresh eggs, too. We also have loveable pets, 4 dogs and 2 cats.SEE MORE
Sip a coffee as the river flows past your private deck of one of our 5 Penta-Pods. Star Gaze from bed in one of our 4 Tetra-Pods. Pitch your own tent in our camping area. Or from Spring 2020, stay in one of our renovated traditional Portuguese stone houses.SEE MORE
We have built some eco-friendly facilities that blend in well to those that are naturally provided. Paddle in the natural swimming pool, relax in the wood-fired hot tub, rock jump into the creek for a wild swim, or stand up paddle board along the River Mondego....SEE MORE
