This place is amazing! Solid 99% The hosts are welcoming and very friendly (Richard, Karen, Chris, Ed, Debby, Ivan). They're compromised with spirituality, healthy nutrition, and well-being. So, you will learn a lot and have a great time. You can join the Yoga and meditation classes, also use the pool and sauna, and use the staff car to visit beautiful beaches near Lagos. The tasks are easy and it helps a lot they are well explained and distributed every week. Lastly, The volunteers I encountered were phenomenal people! Thank you so much for this experience.

The great the Center! An amazing spot for Worldpackers. The tasks are fair and relaxed, the property is beautiful and peaceful; you have a pool and a sauna, shared kitchen and living room, and if you're lucky even a staff car you can use in order to explore the various beaches and hikes in the Algarve. You also have morning yoga and evening meditation you can join when not on duty. Most important, the permanent staff is charming and very welcoming. Thank you richard, ed, debbi, karen, chris and ivan. Keep spreading good energies and healing people💕 Sausage.

This place is ideal for balancing work, rest, good food, meeting good people and enjoying the nature of Portugal. I had a lovely time and was full of different experiences, the people and the food are very abundant and the work is fair with what you get. I recommend this experience to people who want to have an experience outside the city and those who want to live in a quiet place. The facilitators and the people who work there are very kind and unique to the volunteers. I LOVED the experience there.

There is no other word to describe this experience than AMAZING! I had days of peace, connection with nature and animals, life in community with super kind and loving people and a deep connection with my inner being in this sacred place! Working hours are well respected and activities vary, so we don't get bored of anything. Just gratitude for these special days at this magical retreat with this super sweet staff! ♥️
