  • Description

    Description

    I am Maria Filipa, 35 years old , born in Porto. Mother of a 4 years old boy. Yoga and portuguese teacher and also handmade jewel maker/seller.

    After many years of travelling and working away I decided to return to Portugal (homecountry) so to start a project in Marco de Canaveses that is where I spent the most of my childhood and where half of my family comes from. I want to provide a peaceful and joyful space for friends, children, tourism, for gatherings, retreats, Temazcal events, Yoga classes and other health and nature related practices. The land is about 2 ha - it has a house with 5 rooms , 4 WC, big living room, big kitchen and a room made for children to play; there is a swimming pool outside, a nice piece of wild forest and a gorgeous view to the mountains. We have super good water coming from our mine - perfect for giving our bodies abundant and pure hydratation.
    At the moment I am needing help to take care of my lovely son, wall painting, gardening and housekeeping.
    The nearest village (Soalhães), where you can find three restaurants, a couple of bakeries, some coffee places, grocery shops and mini markets, is about 3 km from the house. You can walk there or even use our bicycle.
    It´s a very beautiful place that makes us connect with gentleness and magic. It is peacefull and unique.

    Hope you to come and enjoy, help and rest, learn and teach, inhale and exhale.

    Até já :)
