  • Description


    Hi again! 🙏
    Sorry... a bit of a late update, but there's no point in getting too far ahead with planning during these global.....

    We love discovering the secret!
    ...Central Portugal.
    We are trying to create a small Meditation Retreat which we moved into a few of years ago.... an abandoned old house and small quinta with lots of potential!

    -The only place in the Benfeita and Coja aea offering daily yoga and meditation, with a fully Vegan diet! ...where we enjoy home grown food, a relaxed lifestyle, beautiful greenery and surroundings - a real step far and removed from the busy outside world.

    We are looking for people who could work with us. At present the veggies are feeding us as a main part of the vegan food on offer. We're raising beds, watering, painting, roofing, planting, mulching, landscaping a large natural pool in the garden.

    We use a combination of mains water and water from the spring fed well in our garden. Enjoy outings to swim, partake in local events and have fun too!
    Hopefully you can join the daily meditation and yoga practise? Or just help us after the long months of lock up?
    You are welcome to contact us for more info! 😊
    ...July Update...
    Mel is going to Germany for a month and anyone with the ability to get up early, chill after lunch and use a compost toilet is super welcome.
    Om Shanti
    Jamie and Mel

    Everyone who wishes to spend a bit of time with themselves benefits from visits here, we enjoy sharing it! Our satvik approach with a wholesome meditation and yoga practise acts as .. Karma yoga swimming and siestas is a main course. We wrap up with big dinners cricket song and quiet evenings.... except for those outings to local music and markets, covid-shit permitting! We provide (only) Vegan food... for enjoyment👍
    Mel is a veterana pioneer in the local area and the largest estrangero landowner in the Benfeita valley, where she brought up 8 children in a house truck!
    With 100 years between us gathering wisdom, we have a lot to share and learn with you!

  • Aide


    We need your helping hands and hearts to share or just visit and practise with us. Every day there are gardening chores to deal with from weeding to harvesting. There's lots of non food plants to work on too. The 20 metre pond is ongoing project ... and we are looking to develop the outside area into a winter garden.
    I'm also looking to do some roofing and painting over the summer 🤔

    Check out the local river beaches and explore this area becoming famous for "estrangeros" who need to live off grid and away from it all. There's a honey-warm social life.
    Best to have a car to explore a lot, or just come along with us on our regular excursions. We can collect from good bus links to Porto and Lisboa 5 minutes away. Best route is via Coimbra to Catraia de Mouronho. Any questions? Just ask.
