Monte Velho

Once a rural tourism center, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as an eco-retreat center. A space to appreciate and bring to life the natural beauty of the environment and a chance to have a real and empowering experience, a connection to the roots and a way to discover true nature.

The holistic centre is designed to offer all the comfort and space you need for your practices. The main temple "Casa das Pinhas" made with round wood architecture and the heated floor is inspired in Monte Velho Retreat Centre friend's center at the Brazilian rainforest. The temple is where the main activities evolve and it's comfortable and surrounded by nature. Between activities, one can relax or study in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views of the surroundings.

The main house is composed of a common living room that is well decorated and is harmonic, an interior dining room with a capacity between 25 and 35 seats, an exterior breakfast veranda with capacity for 32 seats, and a spa with a sauna, steam bath, and a therapy room. The rooms at Monte Velho are cozy with simple decoration. Monte Velho provides all that is needed for letting go so you can surrender while being taken care of. As you walk out the door, maybe the sunlight or the magical sky stars will salute you.

Forest House

The Forest house is located a few meters from the main building next to the treetops overlooking the sea, an amazing ocean view. Ideal for those who like privacy, having access to all the activities surrounding the center. This house of natural materials, has two bedrooms, one living room with kitchenette, and a small porch.

The retreat goal is to detoxify the mind, body, and spirit. The day starts with morning yoga and breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. This followed by a healthy and delicious breakfast where you will eat in silence. Breakfast is an important meal in your detox days plan.
