Monte da Orada
is an authentic Portuguese countryside home.
A rustic countryside home is not a city home. It has all the essential commodities for you to be comfortable, but it’s still a home surrounded by nature, by the elements, lots of sunlight, lots of green vibrant life, overwhelming silence, an amazing night sky… but also wind, dust and bugs.
Yes, we share our surroundings with some harmless bugs and wild animals. That’s why when coming to Monte da Orada we like to share in advance with our guests that nature is indeed alive around this house. And so we invite you to embrace this experience and to honor it!
Orada offers different accommodation types from private suites and bungalows to tepees and cozy dorm rooms. The buildings and retreat facilities were reconstructed using traditional and organic materials (adobe) giving this beautiful property not only an authentic Portuguese feel, but also providing a healthy and comfortable environment in all weather.
Besides your own accommodation, all guests have access to all shared (nonexclusive) spaces: Biopool, Canteen, Meditation Temple, Chillout Panoramic Solarium, Terrace, stone oven, natural amphitheater lounge and all 71 hectares of the ranch, hiking trails, creeks.
Yoga & Meditation Temple
This temple is the perfect place to contemplate stillness and practice mindfulness.
It has 2 stages (50m2+ 50m2) and holds up to 40 people. We provide mats, blocks, belts and bolsters.
A fully self sustainable pool- eco-system which keeps the water oxygenated and chemical-free, perfect for swimming and relaxation.
We chose a bio pool, because it does not harm the environment, neither does it cause the problems that chlorine causes in humans and nature's health.
This 150m2 multipurpose open space hall is ideal for workshops, meetings as well as Yoga classes. It has a basic sound system, wifi broadband, flipcharts, whiteboard, RGB lights and long coffee-break counter. (holds 80 people)
