Finding the ideal location for our retreat was always our top priority. With Naturarte Campo we have found the perfect accommodation that combines nature and peaceful surroundings with high-quality, beautifully decorated rooms and facilities.
Located in the Vicentine Nature Park the hotel offers a peaceful and calm accommodation for nature lovers and a break from busy city life. The living and dining rooms, yoga room, swimming pool, tennis court and an orchard with an outdoor bed offer the perfect facilities to relax and enjoy. At Naturarte, every room is decorated individually inspired by traditional Portuguese architecture.
Our program is carefully designed to combine yoga and relaxation with unforgettable outdoor activities that show you the most beautiful nature of southwest Portugal.
Our day will start and end with different kinds of yoga classes. However, what makes this retreat so unique is that you can personalize your program as we offer plenty of free time to try exciting activities such as kayaking in the Mira River, surfing, hiking and horse riding, discovering hidden waterfalls, enjoying a massage or going to the beach or just reading a book and relaxing by the pool. On this retreat, every day will bring a new unique experience that you won’t forget.
On day 6 we will be doing a hike and unique meditation session on top of the nearby mountain. With a breath-taking view of the river and ocean, we will be watching the sunset and reflect on our goals in life. This is our favorite day because it will end with a delicious farewell barbecue with traditional Portuguese products: wine, cheese, local bread, grilled fish from the market (for the non-vegetarian). Portuguese music, dance and good vibes will make this an unforgettable evening.
We will start our last day slightly later with a special yoga class. Subsequently, our cook will spoil us with a delicious brunch after which participants have time to pack their bags and relax before the transfer takes them home at 13:00 (depending on participant's flights times)
Our retreat offers the exceptional opportunity to discover Portugal’s beauty beyond its main touristic cities. The southwest Alentejo coast is one of the most astonishing natural landscapes in Portugal. Enjoy its untouched beauty with us in a small Portuguese village called São Luis. Located in the Vicentine Nature Park, our retreat has a unique combination of natural wonders: the mountains of Cercal, the Mira River, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Although having the amazing benefits of a peaceful nature experience, the beautiful beaches can be reached within only a short driving distance (10-20 min), some of which are vast and very popular (such as Malhão, Aivados, Zambujeira do Mar and Almograve), and others which are small and practically deserted, even in the summer. On the river Mira, which passes close by, it is possible to practice a variety of water sports away from the ocean waves and in close contact with a peaceful landscape.
During this retreat, you will enjoy three daily vegetarian meals. The menu is thoughtfully chosen with the help of a nutritionist and includes a power-breakfast and a light lunch, which can be taken to the activities as a picnic, and a dinner rich in nutrients.
The ingredients may include freshly pressed juices, refined with mint from the garden and homemade energy bars to give you energy between yoga and activities.
You can hike through the available routes of the famous Rota Vicentina where you will enjoy different hiking scenarios, from the rugged and wild coastline to the countryside hills, also small and characteristic Portuguese villages and the natural park.
Horse lovers can enjoy high-quality riding lessons, as there exist stables within the accommodation’s grounds. Depending on the level of experience, horse riding trips are available in the local equestrian center, the surrounding fields, along the river or coastline.
Paddle in one of the cleanest rivers in Europe or go on a guided day-long adventure to the heart of Alentejo where you can discover off the beaten track waterfalls.
There are several theme workshops offered at an additional cost. Some of the options include a nutrition, tile painting, or meditation workshop among others.
Enjoy a high-quality surf lesson with one of the best surf schools in Portugal. If you are a beginner or simply want to strengthen your existing skills, the beaches surrounding the retreat center offer the perfect conditions and waves for every level!
