Vale das Lobas

Health, Education, Biodiversity

An educational, well-being and nature resort

Vale das Lobas is using regenerative organic farming, low impact ecological construction, and biodiversity restoration to transform an idyllic mountain valley in Portugal into an educational, well-being and nature tourism destination.

Vale das Lobas is restoring a 17th century manor into a nature spa hotel; an historic olive mill into a riverside restaurant; building a camping park in an ancient olive grove; constructing a tourist village from Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB); & transforming 50 hectares of fields, orchards and forests into a regenerative organic farm, all set within a wild mountain landscape “Biodiversity Zone.”

In partnership with nature

Core to our regeneration model is the development and application of low impact technologies; including land, energy, water and waste management systems, designed to promote resilience, improve soil quality and enhance biodiversity; and demonstrate how farming, housing and tourism can work together for the benefit of nature.

The vision

Ecological and economic regeneration, with  enterprises that support nature recovery..

The mission

To reconnect humanity with nature through biodiversity, health and education

The place

A hidden treasure in Beira Alta, where a spell was cast and time stood still…

Nature Spa Hotel

Fifteen hectares of terraced gardens and forests with ancient springs and water mines, and a 17th century mansion to be restored with 23 bedrooms, conference area and spa.

Camping Park

In the heart of nature, with access to trails and pilgrimage ways for mountain biking, horse riding and hiking. The ideal “base camp” for an adventure.

Olive Mill Restaurant

Café / bar / restaurant with function room, performance space, waterside terrace and walnut tree gardens, in a restored historic, granite olive mill.

Artisan Village

Twenty hectares of forests, meadows and orchards, stunning views in all directions; twenty-seven eco-dwellings, a restaurant and a natural swimming pool.

Compressed Earth Blocks

In Portugal, there is a long tradition of building with Taipa or rammed earth. We will create blocks in a hydraulic press with consistent and reliable technical properties.

Regenerative Organic Farm

Production of organic olive oil, chestnut flour, grains, fruits, vegetables, herbs and health botanicals, on a 50 hectare farm, surrounded by “Biodiversity Zone”
