About This Center
Set in a tranquil olive grove leading down to the green forests surrounding the River Zêzere in central Portugal, Relaxscape is about reconnecting with nature, a place where you can press pause on your busy life and escape for a while.
It’s a place to enjoy a slower pace, savour simple pleasures. A place to relax and reconnect with yourself.
Reconnect with nature, rediscover yourself
Venue HighlightsWe created Relaxscape retreat as a place for you to escape from the stresses of your everyday life. Set in a tranquil olive grove leading down to the green forests surrounding the River Zêzere in central Portugal, Relaxscape is about reconnecting with nature, a place where you can press pause on your busy life and escape for a while. Inspired by the Japanese philosophies of ikigai (your “reason for being”) and shinrin yoku (“forest bathing”), Relaxscape has been created as a calming retreat surrounded by trees, with activities designed to help you discover what makes you happy. It’s a place to enjoy a slower pace, savour simple pleasures. A place to relax and rediscover what's important to you while recharging your body and mind.
All our retreats have a change coach working alongside the retreat facilitator, and between them they will help you to get the most out of your retreat experience and guide you gently while you connect with nature and start to reconnect with yourself.
AccommodationsYou'll stay in our charmingly restored 100 year old home that combines traditional style and modern comforts, set in a peaceful olive grove surrounded by trees and beautiful views. We can welcome a maximum of nine guests currently. The rooms all have private en-suites, some with waterfall showers and some with deep soak luxury baths (and showers) with views over the olive grove. There are three comfortable single rooms with larger than average beds, two double rooms and one twin (or double) room. Downstairs, there is a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room, where you can help yourself to breakfast, lunch and refreshments and where we'll come together to eat a locally sourced (homegrown where possible!), home-cooked meal in the evenings, or out on the surrounding terraces.

Evening meals are cooked for you by our retreat chefs, who are used to catering for vegetarian, vegan, and special diets. There's also the option to eat out at some local restaurants where you can enjoy some more traditional Portuguese food.
