for a mindful vacation


Quinta Monte Palmira is an old renovated farmhouse with guesthouse, caravan and Mongolian yurt located in rural Brejo (between Moncarapacho and Tavira) in the East Algarve in southern Portugal, 10 km from the beach and 40 minutes by car from Faro airport.

Nestled between olive, fig, orange and almond trees, it is the ideal setting for a mindful vacation or personal retreat, or just relaxing in a hammock with a book. Far away from the busyness of modern life, we offer a place where you can experience the peacefulness and serenity of the surroundings, and come home to yourself.

Our authentic Mongolian yurt is a unique and lovely silent space which all are welcome to use for practicing sitting meditation or yoga or to just sit and enjoy the original hand painted designs and the wonderful feeling of just being, while listening to the sounds of nature going on outside. Weekly morning sitting meditation sessions are open to all who would like to join.

Walking along country trails, exploring neighboring fishing villages, bird watching in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve or soaking up the sun at Praia do Barril, this hidden gem in southern Portugal invites time to slow down so the days, and we ourselves, can gently unfold.
