“From an urban existence in London, to a mountain in Portugal – how our vision manifested into a lifestyle” - Simon & Davina (your hosts)

It is now our purpose to offer this space to those who can appreciate it and use it for making positive changes to their guests and the wider community.

Retreat leaders have the skills and intention to create great retreats and we have the “set and setting” where that can take place.
