ACCOMODATION & SURROUNDING – CARRAPATEIRA, PORTUGAL
Monte Velho Nature Resort is embedded in the unique landscape of the Costa Vicentina Natural Parc: an abundance of wild nature along the stunning atlantic coast with high cliffs, sandy beaches and secluded bays. The 30ha plot of land is located on a hill with 360 degree panoramic view overlooking the pine- and eucalyptus forests and the ocean. Plenty of spots to retreat, watching sunrise or sunset with only the sound of frogs and birds in the background… we find this place is truly special and full of magic.
The simple yet beautiful rooms (suites) are very spacious, each with a bedroom, a lounge-area and a bathroom. All suites have their own terrace or deck, with a daybed and hammock. After the yoga practice a delicious meal is waiting for you – the chef is passionate about yummy & healthy food. Besides plenty of love only the freshest local organic produce goes into the vegan & vegetarian meals.
On the nearby beaches Amado & Bordeira (only 10min drive away) you can enjoy the sun, take a long walk or surf a wave – surf lessons including board & wetsuit can be booked on the beach. Hiking and mountainbiking on the old fisherman trails along the cliffs or inland on the historical paths (Rota Vicentina) is a great adventure and in Monte Velhos Spa with sauna and steambath you can also spoil yourself and book a massage treatment.
