Our Story...

Whilst living in London we spent many long weekends away in the wild land of north Portugal, which is where Carlos is from, enjoying the green, spatial and natural scenery.  

 

We ate local, seasonal foods and returned to London each time calmer, refreshed and renewed. 

 

Entranced too by the ancient lands and legends of the region we chose an estate amongst the rolling Minho countryside and Granite peaks of the Serra D’Arga to collect, envelope and cocoon this dreamy sense of space, peace and nature into a yoga retreat centre perfect for adventurous spirits like us.
