Eco Lodge

It is our pleasure to welcome you to our sustainably built and run retreat center. Ideal for nature lovers and animal lovers alike! Our riverfront property has made a lasting impression on us and our visitors since 2017.

We have worked to complement the land's beauty by building from solely natural materials and maintaining a low carbon footprint.

Our aim is to provide a place for wellness in nature. We look forward to welcoming you!

Natural Swimming Pool

Our swimming pool is kept clear and chemical-free using a sand filter, UV filter, and diverse aquatic plants. The pool looks down from it's edge to the valley and surrounding woodland

Communal Spaces

For a break from nature's elements, we have cozy communal dining spaces and chill-out areas. Grab a cup of tea, a good book, and cuddle up with one of the cats.

Hot Tub & Sauna

Our eco hot tub is heated by both wood-fire and solar power. Our hobbit-style sauna is also heated by wood-fire, and near enough to the pool to cool down in between sessions.

Our Indoor Yoga Shala with natural and calm vibes is where we host Retreat groups, Weekly Yoga Classes, Yoga Teacher Training and Workshops. It's heated for cool autumn and winter days and has panoramic views out over the valley.

With stunning views of the pool and soothing sounds of the river, the Outdoor Shala is a super peaceful spot to relax. There's plenty of equipment for a workout or Meditation. It's available for use any time there isn't guided Yoga classes or other facilitated Workshops on the schedule.

the Area

The Serra da Estrela region is rich in ancient history, culture and natural beauty. 

Rent a mountain bike to venture on the Dolmen Mystery Tour to explore clues left on the earth by our ancestors 6000 years ago.

At our doorstep is the Mondego River. A peaceful way to pass a hot afternoon is paddling on one of our Stand Up Paddle Boards along the Mondego Valley.
