A family of avid travelers, we welcome people from all countries, backgrounds and walks of life: worldschooling families, passionate explorers, laid-back honeymooners, curious teenagers, nomads living a digital adventure and Lisbon weekenders.
At the quinta, you can take a break and connect to the land, laying by the pool, playing ping pong or pétanque, get lost in the bushes, or working in our communal gardens.
Or go explore the Algarvian surrounding on a bike, or depending on the conditions of the day, kite surf (15 minutes away), surf (25-45 minutes away) or stand-up paddle (10 minutes away). Feeling like diving into the Portuguese lifestyle? Five towns are less than 25 minutes away: the market-focused towns of Olhao and Loulé, the charming town of Tavira, the seaside fisherman port of Fuseta, and the rich Algarvian capital of Faro. Beaches are nearby (Fuseta) and a short ferry ride will take you to the desert islands and sand bars of the Ria Formosa National Park.
Reconnect with nature and join our passion for regenerating the earth.
Our grey water also irrigates our gardens, so we provide you with heavenly organic, biodegradable body-care products and detergents.
Thick walls, smart building, solar panels and ingenious water and cooling systems allow us to create, conserve and recycle energy, making the main houses one of 1.3% of houses in Portugal to be rated A+ in energy efficiency (think one of the most comfortable stays in winter...).
At the Quinta, you will find numerous fruit trees, olive trees, carob trees, medicinal plants, and soil regeneration ecosystems pollinated by local bees. Over 80 species of birds have been spotted by a guest in one day!
And since every small step count in keeping single-use plastic out of our oceans and landfills, our bulk store is here to help us achieve a plastic-free lifestyle. Actively participate in our compost efforts, and you will play a major role in making the property and wildlife more alive every day.
Want to do more to stretch your body and expand your mind? Consider participating in our regular retreats, where aerial yoga, loom weaving, ceramics and farm-to-table cooking will be a welcome break from screen time and busy city lifestyle…
Bohemia is not a place, it is a state of mind... We value community, collaboration and sharing. Be part of it!
