‘Cabeço’ – Our casa your home

The In Natura’ Life Beyond the Horizon Retreat is on the outskirts of the small village Alombada, set in the mountains of Caramulo and has only 15 other inhabitants!

The Features:

This area of Portugal has beautiful mountainous landscapes, waterfalls and rivers and is 30 minutes away from the beautiful quiet beaches at Costa Nova.

Nearby in the town of São Pedro Do Sul is the natural hot water spa ‘BALNEÁRIO QUEEN D. AMELIA ’ providing our guests with a unique holistic experience, helping you relax and allowing you to let your stresses subside and be replaced by a feeling of wellbeing.

At the bottom of the Caramulo mountains on the road to Alombada is a local Leisure Park, a beauty spot where you can reflect, breath and embrace the peace and tranquillity while walking and sitting beside the running river.

It is not a holiday:

Please do not think this is a holiday, although because of the setting you could mistake it for one, rest assured it is no picnic.

The various activities between counselling sessions, although enjoyable, have been researched and planned for our guests to enhance their path to recovery.

Please see our programs page for further details.
