O Vale Encantado Wellbeing Practice and Quinta do Lontra are excited to announce a powerful mind and body therapy retreat located on the banks of the stunning Rio Mondego.

The theme is CHANGE. Whether you’re in the middle of change, want to make future changes or looking to find ways of coping with unwanted/unexpected change. We invite you to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and the healing of therapy.

We offer healing for the body and the mind. The weekend will be packed with 1-1 treatments and group workshops.

This will be a powerful time of learning, development and transition. For this reason we are limiting the numbers to 8 people.


  • Stunning riverside off-grid location.
  • Very experienced therapist and practitioners with over 28 years combined experience.
  • Complimentary healing mind and body therapies.
  • Delicious healthy vegetarian food.
  • Modern comfortable accommodation complete with river views.
  • Breathtaking wildlife including otters, kites, wild boar and more.


Quinta da Lontra (Farm of the Otter) is situated in a valley on 3 hectares (7.5 acres) of land bordering the Mondego River.

The land is a combination of sandy river beaches, meadowland & terraces containing vines, fruit & olive trees. European & cork oak woodland borders the property. The farm sits in a river valley, in beautiful unspoilt countryside and is accessible only by a 1km dirt track, normal hire cars are fine but very low slung cars may struggle. With no immediate neighbours you’re guaranteed peace and quiet during your stay.

Our delicious drinking water is filtered from the stream that runs through the land, & we encourage all guests to not bring water in plastic bottles.

The local village of Póvoa de Midões is only 1.5 km from us, where you’ll find 3 bars/cafes & a small convenience store where basic food & wine can be bought.

There are also a number of good restaurants serving typical Portuguese cuisine in the neighbouring villages.


  • Hypnotherapy
  • Emotion code and mindfulness coaching
  • Craniosacral biodynamics
  • Zero balancing touch & somatic movement
