Instructors

Mafalda Fonseca
Mafalda is the founder of the project. In 2014, she decided to take a sabbatical period and traveled around the world. At the beginning of 2016, she felt the desire to return home in the middle of mother nature. From this return was born the desire to create a project with deep roots and at the same time inspired by movement and freedom. This place brought to her all this. Here, she could feel the kiss of the breeze, the embrace of the winds, and the freedom to dance in the woods. From here has reborn the connection with the earth that she wants to share with everyone who visits this place.

Location

Casa do Páteo is located in the Natural Reserve of Arrábida, just a few minutes from the Albufeira Lagoon, Moinho Beach, Rio de Prata (first naturist beach in Portugal), the small village of Meco and 8 kilometers from a charming fishertown Sesimbra. This is a place where you can enjoy the blend of incandescent light that shines from the forest in the late afternoon and the breathtaking translucent clarity of a morning by the ocean.

The village of Meco is a charming and quiet place that mixes simplicity and elegance with excellent restaurants and bars that enliven the warm summer nights with enthusiasm and joy. The beaches of Meco are internationally known for its naturism, kitesurf, and windsurf. The golden sandy beach is protected by clay cliffs and aromatic plants.

The whole area stimulates the creative freedom of imagination and the contemplation of nature with the spectacular colors of the sunrise and sunset and the curing treatments of green clay, running naturally from the cliffs.
