Our 13 acres of well-loved and tended forest land are a haven for wildlife. The beautiful terraces step down the Bacelo hillside, offering incredible views of the surrounding valleys and hills. Our valley is particularly magical, with ancient olive groves and a rejuvenating stream bubbling through a myriad of natural slate rock pools. It's the perfect spot to connect with nature, explore the forest trails, or simply relax in a hammock with a book.

Yin yoga posture

Several days a week, we incorporate morning silence into our schedule to cultivate a sense of presence and inner stillness. This allows you to deepen your experience during yoga classes and activities and integrate any realizations or insights gained during your stay.

Sound healing gong baths

…..My body feels rested & energized, my mind pacified & quiet, my yoga practice deepened & balanced. A special tranquility & peace combined with beautiful views & lightheartedness allows reconnection with simplici-ty, nature & slowness. I leave with a renewed motivation for my practice, greater attention to my body, reaping the benefits of a macrobiotic lifestyle. There is a certain magic here exuding from warm open hearts & a happy acceptance………..a unique & special place in Portugal. Juliette
