“Unforgettable experience“ . I came to stay at Retreat Bela Natureza on their 5 day 'Smile' package which focuses on interacting with the dogs at the retreat. I had a wonderful 5 days not just getting to know and receiving love and affection from the 13 beautiful dogs, but also truly getting in touch with nature as the retreat is filled with tropical greenery and animals who sing throughout the day. The ensuite Curió was comfortable and spacious and the facilities at the retreat suited my needs perfectly. Thankyou Evelyn and Bela Natureza! Emily, London, UK . ************************************ . February 2018: "Merveilleux Endroit“ . Je suis resté une semaine dans ce merveilleux endroit avec Evelyn et sa petite famille de 13 chiens vraiment adorables. J'ai pu l'aider pour la maintenance et quelques petits travaux de jardinage. C'était quelques heures par jour et ce fût un vrai plaisir de participer à son projet, de se sentir util. Evelyn est une personne très gentille, toujours souriante, avec la main sur le coeur, qui aime partager son expérience de la vie. Si vous voulez passer une semaine de détente toute en restant un minimum actif, je vous recommande ce superbe endroit. J'ai choisi le package standard qui offre la possibilité d'aider deux heures par jour.
