  • Description


    Our animal family consists of 5 dogs (3 big and 2 small) and 3 cats and very soon 1 donkey.
    They are a lovely and happy bunch and are used to having other people around.

    We are slowly transforming the place where we live from a long abandoned dog care facility into a beautiful, high vibe, retreat location. Which can support and encourage a person to go on an inner discovery and healing journey.

    For more information about us you can look on our website.

    We live in a beautiful spot with amazing views over the Algarve and the ocean.
    Shops are around 10 /15 min drive away in the surrounding towns and villages.
    The beaches are aprox. 30 min drive away.
