Our Portuguese Retreat Venue
Casa da Lage Estate
For those yearning a complete break from the everyday along with daily Yoga and meditation, this stunning Minho Manor House in northern Portugal enables you to unwind and appreciate the silence of the natural surroundings from the comfort of luxurious accommodations.
This beautiful seventeenth century Minho manor house is situated inside an extensive farm within walking distance of the oldest village in Portugal, Ponte de Lima and next to the protected area of Bertiandos lagoons.
The manor house has the characteristic atmosphere of a Portuguese noble house. The house has ten bedrooms spread over two buildings (main house and the Granary House) designed to accommodate with comfort and refinement. Each bedroom has two beds and an en-suite bath.
The Casa da Lage is a fine example of a seventeenth century manor house in the heart of the green Minho region where the beauty, friendliness and well being of the region are abound.
Set at the foot of the Arga mountain range, next to the Protected Landscape of Bertiandos Lagoon, we are surrounded by prime locations for hiking. There is the river beach of the river Lima a short 2 miles away and a golf course just 6.25 miles away. We are a short walk from Ponte de Lima, with its festivals and monuments. This Estate enjoys an idyllic location.
There are options to arrange for walking tours, bicycle tours, kayaking trips, horseback riding and a daytrip to the National Park.
A day trip to Viana do Castelo and Monte de Santa Luiza to visit the lovely ancient city and the cathedral on top of the hill and another day trip for a Douro Valley Wine tour is included. Also included in this retreat package is a half day trip to Barcelos for the Thursday morning market.
By the end of your stay, you will feel physically and spiritually rejuvenated.
