Zee Barn is not a hotel. It is a quiet eco-project, 10 minutes north of the amazing Ericeira’s surf beaches. The center is an eco-community designed along the lines of a sustainable project rather than a holiday resort. We have created peaceful heaven reflecting the surrounding nature. The dorm is an art piece; handbuilt with wood and driftwood, simple yet very spacious and comfortable dormitory which is set inside a forest garden.

The space is very quiet with only nature sounds enveloping your being. It also has a wooden mezzanine to chill, read, online work, and meditate. They also have a yoga barn and meditation shala, a productive garden with tasty fruits and vegetables, and a community kitchen and dining room in a cozy wooden house. There are outdoor hot showers and compost toilets as well as an outdoor and inside chill out area.


Zee Barn bio-collective is a holistic project born out of love for living simply in balance with Mother Nature. Zee Barn brings a collection of practices and disciplines that nurture life in its fullness. These practices include yoga, permaculture, and regenerative design, meditation, superfoods cultivation, connecting with earth-friendly communities as well as journeying with sound and breath.

They have created this program that has helped so many people to reconnect with nature and their inner self while shifting the elusive boundaries of confinement. Both yoga and permaculture are sciences that lead you to growth, truth, and connection while empowering you with good health and harmonic rhythms. As human beings, you are all entitled to living in bliss and peace, however, modern-day life is full of stressful triggers that distract you from your inner peace.

Throughout this program, they share a treasure of tools that you will surely enjoy, but more importantly, be able to use effectively for the rest of your life. They live in gratitude for the gifts that they have received and are able to share with others. This program is a way how they extend their ecosystem by welcoming you to participate and share the bountiness around everyone. Please understand that your way of life is simple and meaningful by choice.

You have cultivated your way of life and share it as your dharma (service to others). The center is not fancy, yet it is enriching for those seeking comfort, connection, and abundance within simplicity. If you love places off the beaten track, secluded, and yet within the reach for modern facilities, then you will find a haven at Zee.

The following enriching experiences are what they offer during your stay:

  • Gardening and seasonal permaculture activities (or free time if you choose)
  • Two macrobiotic vegetarian food meals preparations (vegan friendly) - brunch and dinner
  • Teas and fruits available for snacking
