Monte da Orada is an authentic Portuguese countryside 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, and an amazing night sky.
Nestled in the heart of a nature sanctuary in the woods of Odemira, Alentejo, South West Portugal, bordering Algarve, Orada is a family run, eco-sustainable, community based soul retreat centre. This is a unique spot, offering wild canopy and creek vistas and abundant wilderness silence, with easy access to a host of amazing beaches just 15-minute drive from the site. Orada prides itself on being a space holder community, a force for innovative possibilities, new mindsets, not a standard guesthouse nor a restaurant.
Besides the stunning accommodation, all guests have access to all shared spaces: the biopool, canteen, meditation temple, chillout panoramic solarium, terrace, stone oven, natural amphitheater lounge and all 71 hectares of the ranch, hiking trails, creeks.
The biopool is a fully self sustainable pool - it has an eco-system which keeps the water oxygenated and chemical-free, perfect for swimming and relaxation. It does not harm the environment, neither does it cause the problems that chlorine causes in humans and nature's health. The temple is the perfect place to contemplate stillness and practice mindfulness. It has 2 stages and holds up to 40 people. They provide mats, blocks, belts and bolsters.
Live in this natural sanctuary and enjoy being surrounded by nature, healthy and orginacally grown food. Be in a place of peace, tranquility, and soul nourishment. Monte Orada is 1.5 hours away from Faro Airport and 2.5 hours away from Lisbon. From Lisbon, you can travel by train and ride a cab or rent a car from there.
