Quinta da Floresta is home to the Awakened Forest Project – our reforestation and nature connection project nestled in the hills of the Serra do Açor in Central Portugal. Our valley is wild and beautiful with a cool mountain river running through and many places to relax, reflect and commune with Nature herself.
Our passion is to live simply with the earth. We live off grid with solar power running our lights and few machines and wood heating our water and food.
Accommodation is a handmade guest room, indoor bathroom, compost toilets and camping in the valley.
We spend our time studying and practicing the ways human beings can live more sustainably – and this involves more than the practicalities of life. This involves interior work as we look at the ways we, human beings, relate to each other, the world and ourselves and how we can live the truth of Unity in a very real, day-to-day way. Mediation is our foundational practice. We are an awakened Life Project project.
