Welcome to our home...
You are invited to retreat to Vale de Moses, a small old valley farm nestled in the remote and picturesque foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountain range, Central Portugal.
Spend a week here on the edge of wilderness, in the beautifully restored home of the Winter family, beneath the village of Amieira, Oleiros. Practice yoga daily, walk in forests, swim and mud bathe in rivers, breath mountain air, eat deliciously, sleep deeply. Retreat.
This warm invitation is open for everyone, travelling alone or with friends, new to yoga or practicing for decades. But it’s particularly for those in need of a break. That’s why a health consultation, massage and acupuncture treatment is included in the price. Retreat from 740€ to 890€ per person per week. 10% discount for returning guests, groups or a 2 week stay.
Our 2016 Retreat Calendar shows live availability for each retreat. The Come and Go page has travel advice. Our Welcome Pack will help you prepare for your stay with us. The Nourish e-Cookbook has some of our delicious retreat menus. Our “We Love Moses” blog has stories from our life here in the mountains. The magical story of how our dog Moses helped us find this remote valley in 2007 is on our old travel blog. Do also read our guest reviews and Press articles.
