About us:

For the past twenty years the property has hosted healing workshops and art courses. We have a successful programme of weekly courses, from spring to late summer to suit all levels. Each year we develop the annual programme to welcome new courses, workshops and daily classes. In the winter we offer weekend workshops of art and yoga.

The natural retreat was established by the current owner Rosalind Hodges and has developed a full schedule of reatreat holidays. The garden has been designed, sculptured and tended under Rosalind's hands, shaped and nurtured to enhance this calm and peaceful place.

Come and find us on the hills above Salema, on the south Coast of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, in the Western Algarve, Portugal. The Villa has a tranquil atmosphere, with a traditional villa feel, simple natural colours harmonise the rooms, and the recreational facilities include large terraces, secluded pool, yoga deck, meditation area and gardens.

Additional outdoor activities can be arranged by personal request including; holistic horse riding, surfing, mountain biking, windsurfing, diving, fishing and walking. Plus alternative therapies including; massage, reflexology, reiki, cranial sacral massage and beauty treatments.

"I believe in the authentic individual and the discovery of personal empowerment. I love to see people have the courage to follow their dreams, and find joy in the simple pleasures of life" : Rosalind Hodges
