About us

Quinta Alma is a private and intimate natural ecological retreat. It is the result of Joana and Mario’s passion and their vision for an inspiring and relaxing experience in the nature. Quinta Alma is a magical place, totally off grid and hidden in the mountains of Monchique but right next to Aljezur, in Algarve’s Atlantic coast.

Quinta Alma is located in a 50 hectare land of wild and beautiful nature, but just 10 minutes driving from some of the most amazing beaches in Europe.

Quinta Alma is a growing organic farm. Here we are eager to try and share permaculture and natural building experiences, in total harmony with nature. It is a place for those that want to have a close but yet comfortable experience with the natural elements.

We believe that the inner and outer beauty of nature inspires the human soul and tenders the human heart. That is why we call this place Quinta Alma, a home where your soul can expand and feel inspired.

More than a pool,
here you have a lake where you can swim.

An artificial lake in the middle of the valley, between two enchanting mountains, makes this place a small paradise. Suitable for swimming, but still wild and with all caution. Never a child should be left alone in the lake.
This is a structural part of our strategy of “rewilding” the land. Animals and plants of all kinds are blooming by the hands of this generous cradle of water.


These are some of the things you can enjoy in Quinta Alma.

Swimming in the lake

Foraging for wild food

Donkey hugging

Bird watching

Crystal hunting

Yoga & Massages
