About This Center
The Natural Retreat was established by the current owner Rosalind Hodges. The garden has been designed, sculpted and tended under Rosalind's hands, shaped and nurtured to enhance this calm and peaceful place.
This unique and intimate retreat venue sits on the hills above Salema, on the south Coast of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, in the Western Algarve, Portugal. The Villa has a tranquil atmosphere, with a traditional villa feel. Simple natural colours harmonise the rooms, and the recreational facilities include large terraces, secluded pool, yoga deck, meditation area and gardens. Additional outdoor activities can be arranged by personal request including; holistic horse riding, surfing, mountain biking, windsurfing, diving, and walking. Plus alternative therapies including; massage, reflexology, reiki, cranial sacral massage and beauty treatments.
The Natural Retreat has been adapted where possible to use ecological resources, including solar pool heating, solar water heating, ecological waste disposal, natural sewage processing, ecological cleaning products and spring water.
