From the top of the “Monte”, we become consciousness of the vast natural space around us, the strength of the elements in the region and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world. The Ocean, the trees and hills, the animals and humans, one vision that puts us in the very center of the continuous beautiful and mighty universal cycles. Once a rural tourism center, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as an Eco Retreat Center. A space to appreciate and bring to life the natural beauty of the environment and a chance to have a real and empowering experience, our connection to our roots and a way to discover our true nature.

Frogs chirping. Stars wheeling overhead. Stunning sunsets views. Tranquil lakes. Pine trees all around.

This is Monte Velho, 5 minutes drive from Amado beach, one of the many gorgeous beaches on the Costa Vicentina. With country tracks waiting to be explored by foot, bike or horse; a swimmable lake and surfing beaches nearby; Plenty of opportunity for healthy outdoor fun...
