About This Center

Rainbow Lodge is a 17.5 hectare (43 acre) Holistic Nature Retreat and organic farm in Central Portugal. The Retreat is situated on the edge of the village of Cortiçô da Serra, within the Serra da Estrela natural park, held by the stunning mountains.

We became the Guardians of this land on the new moon, October 2016 and we are looking forward to see how this farm organically develops over time.

We live in a strawbale house that is completely off grid. Our water comes from a fresh water spring, which also feeds into the dam and natural swimming pool. The electricity on the property is created with solar and wind power. We have limited wifi near the strawbale house.

We are in the process of building a communal kitchen and covered sitting area making this a great venue for running your own retreat. But we can provide meals if you would prefer not to cook. When possible we use the organic produce grown on the property or from local producers.

We have various types of accommodation to suit different needs from yurts, tipis, and caravans. You are also welcome to find a private spot and camp in your own tent. More compost toilets and showers are in the process of being built.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
