Vale das LobasNature Spa
The Nature Spa Hotel is set in a landscape of terraced gardens and forests that date back to pre-Roman times. The aura of antiquity and healing waters make this a lost treasure of the ancient world, with the natural power to provide rest, recuperation, regeneration, learning and celebration.
The valley is the site of neolithic temples and dolmens, Roman copper mines, relics of ancient Islam and early Christendom, and throughout these five millenia, the springs and mines provided the blessing of water to an unbroken chain of subsistence farmers, and now provides an invaluable link to the ancestral past.
The Nature Spa was constructed more than 400 years ago as the family home to a noble dynasty. This beautiful and unique building will be restored with 23 bedrooms, a spa, seminar and conference spaces, a restaurant, apothecary and botanical medicine gardens. The restoration will take 2 years, and the site will be open to visitors in December 2020.
If you are in an important life change, or you need to improve your health, it is a good idea to take a break from your everyday life, to reconnect with the rhythms of nature, and listen to the wisdom of your soul.
The well-being program at Vale das Lobas Nature Spa will provide the ideal conditions for navigating life’s changes. The atmosphere of this natural mountain retreat will subtly support your reconnection with your self and with nature.
The one-week program is a basic building block, and your experience will deepen the longer you stay and with return visits.
