Retreats aimed at finding your inner peace

The Green Farm is the perfect space to experience a retreat: set in the peaceful Central Portugal countryside just an hour from the Lisbon Airport, the facilities, wonderful food and tranquil surrounds create the ideal environment to restore the soul and body. The peace and tranquility of the farm is what draws visitors back time and again.

Our farm is located in a historically rich area, close to the Knights Templar centre of Tomar, and is just a 15 minute drive from Golegā, the horse capital of Portugal. With Fátima and the Camino de Santiago nearby, there is something for everyone.

Magical Manifesting & The 4 Elements Retreat

Magical Manifesting & The 4 Elements Retreat


This Retreat has been lovingly crafted by Donna McCallum (aka The Fairy Godmother) to work at 3 levels for a deeply transformative and revitalizing experience.

For 13 years, Donna has worked with thousands of clients from countries around the world and opened them up to their true essence, purpose and power.

In your daily, city life it is easy to get caught up in the “noise”. You get BUSY.  You overwork.  You stress.  You get exhausted. And you lose touch with YOU.

You detour away from your dreams and soul desires. You self-sabotage. You feel overwhelmed and go off track (or you aren’t even sure what the ‘right’ track is?)

Spend a full week – 7 days and 7 nights –  on The Green Farm in June 2019 with Donna McCallum (aka The Fairy Godmother) to experience the Magic, Authenticity, Transformation and Inspiration that happens when you align body, mind and soul;  when you connect to the power of nature and the 4 Elements and when you connect to your deepest desires.

Enjoy a supportive and gentle environment at our magnificent retreat centre where you can slow down, nurture your body, quieten your mind and re-connect to the whispering wisdom of your soul and intuition.

Riding and Views in Central Portugal

Riding and Views in Central Portugal

Miles of beautiful trail rides through uninterrupted countryside await you at The Green Farm, as well as a top class arena where you can enjoy dressage or jumping lessons.

Experience a unique all-inclusive riding holiday with us, with 4 nights accommodation and 5 hours of riding. Select either trail riding or lessons in the arena, or a combination of both. Lessons include foundation classes, or jumping and dressage.

Our dressage lessons are on a Lusitano stallion dressage schoolmaster. The lessons are one-on-one to give the best attention to the rider, and are tailored to suit the level of the individual.

Jumping lessons are on Irish Sport Horses who have competed and jumped 100 – 130; these lessons are also one-on-one.

We offer riding for beginners to intermediate level; no prior knowledge of riding is required as we have horses to suit any level and ability.

In summer the morning lessons are timed to avoid the heat and so are early in the day.

The holiday begins with an evening ride on the first day taking in the sunset views over the dam. Our dinners are served in the dining room of the main house and include local wines.

The second day gets off to a leisurely start after the buffet breakfast, with a tour of the farm and a lesson in the morning. Our farm fresh lunch is followed by the afternoon lesson or trail ride, and then time to relax around the pool.

On the morning of day three we enjoy another leisurely start, followed by a lesson after breakfast. Lunch is at a traditional Portuguese restaurant in Golegã, the horse capital of Portugal, a 15 minute drive from the farm. In the afternoon we visit a stud farm where we learn more about the Lusitano horses of Portugal.

On day four we enjoy a lesson in the morning, with plenty of time to relax next to the pool or book a spa session. The spa offers Reiki, massage and a Turkish bath, and Yoga classes are available on request.

Bicycles are available for non-riders to explore the countryside.

On day five we enjoy a champagne breakfast before departing for the airport.

We welcome individual riders as well as non-riders.

Hanging with Horses

Hanging with Horses

Spend a day getting to know horses and establishing a connection with them: this day is crafted to deepen our enjoyment of horses.

We get off to an early start with feeding them and observing the herd interaction, and then feeding ourselves with a delicious buffet breakfast. After breakfast we groom and interact with our horses as we learn about horse communication, their energy and how they mirror our energy and feelings.  Deepening our connection and getting to know them, this session is a perfect precursor to either a lesson in the arena or a trail ride along the some of the many paths through the picturesque rolling hills around the farm. If a lesson is preferred, riders can choose lesson basics, or a jumping or dressage lesson. Lunch is enjoyed at a local Portuguese country restaurant.  After lunch the choice is available to spend time with the herd or to relax next to the pool.

The Price Includes:

  • Buffet breakfast
