Welcome to 4elements! The house features 5 bedrooms with private bathroom on the first floor, a kitchen, dining and living room, the yoga studio and a common bathroom on the ground floor. The farm and the garden unfold over 2500 sqm. The outside area offers a huge variety of vegetables, fruit and herbs and is home to many birds, butterflies and a hedgehog :)
4elements retreat is located in the lovely village of Póvoa de Penafirme, about 45 mins from Lisbon Airport. Póvoa has a pharmacy, a post office, various cafés, fruit shops, a bakery and small supermarkets for everyday needs. The city of Torres Vedras is a 15 min drive away, the holiday village Santa Cruz can be reached within 15 minutes walking. The area here offers fascinating nature with a long and empty coastline. Two beautiful beaches are just a stone's throw away from the house. We're lucky to be located in a quiet village on the Silver Coast of Portugal, while being in the middle of several popular touristic destinations like Sintra, Ericeira, Óbidos, Peniche and Nazaré.
