Women's Retreat

Quinta Carvalhas, Santarém

April 28 - May 1, 2023


We want to get and stay at the pure love frequency. Remembering that being active and powerful means taking good decisions, showing up and taking your place.

Slowing down will refresh mind and body. Movement re-awakes essential emotions. Playfulness cultivates new healthy habits.


At the magical Quinta Carvalhas you can expect a carefully designed program of daily movement and restorative practices, ritual, music, nourishing meals, enjoying refreshing time in nature and celebrating yourself.


Quinta Carvalhas - The Green Farm, is a luxury retreat venue in Portugal, located in the peaceful Ribatejo countryside.

A holistic well-being haven that offers unique experiences in the calming rhythm of nature, combined with the loving energy of its family team.

A rolling landscape, gorgeous old stone buildings, plenty of trees and a lot of history. It is only an hour from the Lisbon airport and 90 minutes to the Atlantic Ocean. This ideal location is complemented by ideal weather, with lots of sunshine and clear blue skies.


In this retreat, you can expect silent mornings with meditations, a variety of different practices, from stillness to somatic movement classes, creative activities and inner connection rituals.

We invite you to slow down, quiet your mind, and connect more deeply with yourself. Each day will be unique. You will have sufficient time to fully integrate all the practices we offer and to enjoy and connect with the beautiful property and its surroundings. It's the simple life that often leads to breakthroughs.

We will work with nature's elements and also practice outside, go on walks, and explore the land.

Teaching language: Portuguese

Terms & Conditions

Thank you for being a part of our growing community. Our highest aspiration is for you to have a wonderful and memorable experience from the first email exchange to the final goodbye hug.

We are a small and independent business that puts a lot of energy and love into making these retreats a reality. For this reason, we are unable to offer any refunds on reservation deposits. We recommend that you carefully review our terms and conditions, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We're here to help!

Thank you so much for your understanding.

Reservation deposit

In order to secure your spot on the adventure of a lifetime, we require a 300€ deposit. Just think of it as a down payment on all the fun you're going to have. As soon as we receive your deposit, your enrollment will be confirmed and you'll be all set to go. Just be sure to read and agree to our terms and conditions before you send in your payment – we don't want any surprises. And one more thing – the deposit payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.


Remainder payment and refunds for retreats

Life can be unpredictable, and we understand that sometimes things come up that are beyond our control. That's why we want to be as flexible as possible when it comes to cancellations and refunds. But just bear in mind that as the retreat date gets closer, it becomes harder and harder for us to fill any empty spots left by cancellations. And we don't want anyone to miss out on all the fun! So, with that in mind, we've come up with the following policy for remainder payments and refunds. It's just a little something to keep in mind as you plan your adventure with us.

  • A deposit payment of 300€ is required to secure your reservation for the retreat. This deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferable.

  • The remainder payment for the retreat is due no later than six weeks before the start of the retreat.

  • If you need to cancel your reservation prior to five weeks before the start of the retreat, we will refund 50% of your payment, minus the deposit payment.

  • If you need to cancel your reservation within the five weeks of the start of the retreat, we will not be able to provide any refunds.

  • In the event that we are forced to cancel the retreat for any reason, we will refund all payments in full.


Retreat cancellation

In the event that we are forced to cancel the retreat for any reason, we will provide a full refund on all payments made, including the reservation deposit. Please note that we are unable to cover any personal expenses, such as travel expenses, visa costs, work-related losses, etc.
