at Quinta Carvalhas

Are you so busy ‘doing’ that you have forgotten how to just ‘be’? 

Have you become so busy with daily tasks that you have no time just for you? 

More and more people are asking for time out – for deep rest, soul rest, for space and time to catch up, to process and just breathe. It is as if we are holding our breath, waiting for a moment of non-busyness so that we can exhale. Our shoulders are tensed, and our breathing is shallow…

It is time to exhale, to allow the tension to flow out – leaving peace.

It is time to nourish your body with delicious home grown, nutritious food. 

It is time to find mental space and calmness in beautiful surroundings.

Our private retreats give you the opportunity to give yourself exactly what you need. The dates are flexible and so is the program. Choose from the options below, or let us create a tailormade package, just for you. 

Horse & Owner Spa Retreat

Treat yourself and your horse to a three-day Spa retreat! This unique retreat aims to pamper both of you, with massages for horse and owner and guided outrides into the beautiful countryside of the Ribatejo.

You will both stay in luxury accommodation enjoying healthy nutritious meals. Our dedicated team are waiting for you and your horse at our incredible farm in the Portuguese countryside, one hour north of Lisbon.

What’s Included:

  • 2 nights of accommodation in one of our comfortable rooms
  • 2 nights of accommodation for your horse in a box with interleading paddock
  • 2 morning hacks exploring the beautiful Ribatejo area
  • 90-minute full body ayurvedic massage
  • 60-minute Physiotherapy treatment for your horse
  • Complimentary late check out at 3pm

And of course, there will be lots of photo memories for you to take home.

Full Program

Day 1

Arrive at the Quinta in the afternoon, settle in and take in the serenity of the countryside. A welcome drink and snack await you and your horse in the stables. Optional – explore the farm and gardens on your own, or book a complimentary guided tour which covers the rich history of the farm and surrounds, as well as the story of the Quinta and its transformation from working farm to beautiful retreat centre.

Tonight, the chef will prepare a three-course dinner for you. Watch the sun set over the paddocks before you retire to your room for the night.

Day 2

After a healthy breakfast, make your way to the stables for your first ride out with our experienced guide. Take in the beautiful views from horseback; the Ribatejo is great riding country where you can explore paths and tracks through the rich agricultural landscape and Cork Oak forests.

Upon your return, your horse will be washed and groomed, and your lunch will be served poolside or on the veranda. The afternoon is reserved for complete relaxation for both of you. Your horse will receive a therapy session by our horse physiotherapist, whilst you relax in our Spa for a 90-minute full body massage.

Finish the afternoon by the pool or take your horse for a walk to our farm pond. At night another nutritious farm-to-table meal awaits you.

Day 3

Join us for breakfast and then set off for another morning exploring the countryside. Today’s ride is a longer one, with a picnic lunch in the shade of the oak trees at our farm pond.

Start the next morning with some gentle couples’ yoga and meditation, tailored to suit your level and experience. Couple’s yoga will allow you to access a whole new realm of benefits for you as individuals and for your relationship together. This is followed by a lazy brunch, served either as a picnic or poolside, with delicious farm-to-table fare and a glass of bubbles. 

Continue the spoiling in the afternoon following in the tradition of Tantra, re-learning the art of touch as you are guided in a couples’ massage. The day winds down with late afternoon tea or coffee and cake, relaxing outdoors in the meditation garden or in the poolside lounge.
