Jump into yourself with activities in nature and yoga so you will get the chance to be in a deep connection with yourself and nature. You will balance your center with tasty, healthy vegetarian food. At Casa do Páteo, you will find the combination of peace, tranquility, and connection to nature with the excitement and fun of water sports, such as coasteering and canoeing, as well as hiking, climbing, and speleology, to discover one of the most beautiful natural parks in Portugal, Nature Park of Arrábida.
During this retreat, you will be staying at Casa do Páteo. It is a country house, surrounded by pine forest and a garden that sings a hymn to the art of mother nature. Casa do Páteo offers free Wi-Fi and a sunbathing patio with an outdoor pool, where you can enjoy the silence, a good book, the company of friends, the shade of the fruit trees, and the fresh fruits of the season.
From the pool, a path winds its way through the small orchard. While you are drinking in the smells of oranges and lemons, you look up to see the dome.
This is a purpose-built geodesic dome raised on wooden pillars above the ground and somehow nestled in between the trees.
In the house, there are two double rooms with private bathroom and two single beds (with the possibility of adapting to double bed), two double rooms with shared bathroom and two single beds (with the possibility of adapting to double bed), a dorm with three bunk beds with a shared private bathroom and a dorm with four single beds with private bathroom. Casa do Páteo Guesthouse can accommodate 18 guests.

Initiation to rock climbing with the introduction of basic knowledge and techniques in level III, V and VI routes.

In this activity we will make an introduction to cave progression, transmitting general techniques and concepts, both at a sports level and at a scientific level (geology, archeology and biology), allowing participants to act with greater security, respect for the surroundings and with a clear notion risks, human impacts, and rules of good practice.

They have cats and one lovely giant dog. They consider it is important to mention, that because they are in the middle of nature, the accesses with public transport are very scarce. For those who like to enjoy the nature and walk in the middle of it, this is the ideal place.
If you want to be autonomous in your freedom of movement and explore all the beauty that surrounds, they suggest you bring your own transport or you can ask for a taxi. If you need help for that, they are happy to help you.
