Rest and relax in our tranquil valley

Wellness retreat accommodation



Since we arrived in 2008, we threw ourselves wholeheartedly into restoring the four Xisto stone cottages at Vale de Moses, with great care and respect to the old local Portuguese traditions of building with natural materials: clay, lime, stone and wood. We hope you'll enjoy staying in these old dwelling places as much as we have over the years. If you prefer to be even closer to nature, the Soulpad belle tents are a delightful and comfortable glamping experience.

We have a variety of accommodation options for your stay. Choose one of two shared (single sex) stone cottages Moses and the Monastic Adega, three private bedrooms in the farmhouse or six Soulpads in the forest. Wherever you stay you will have nearby access to indoor bathrooms and newly built modern showers. There are no en-suite rooms but there are plenty of showers and bathrooms near all the options. Beds are quality Portuguese-made mattresses, all with memory foam toppers, cotton sheets, blankets, mosquito nets, good pillows and duvets. Restorative sleep is an essential part of your retreat with us.

We offer 10% discount for returning guests, 2-week stays, students, or group bookings of four or more. If staying two weeks, you'll check out on the Saturday between retreats and stay a night in Oleiros either in a 4-star hotel (80€ to 120€ all incl) or wooden cabin in the campsite by the river beach (30€ to 65€). We'll arrange this for you in advance, and take you to and from Oleiros. 2019 prices for each accommodation option are below.

*Please be aware that prices listed here are for our 2019 retreats and 2020 prices are subject to change. You can find more information about 2020 price changes on our retreat pages for next year.
