“The best Nature hideaway to unplug and reconnect in 2020”
Quinta Alma is now open. The pandemic outbreak led us to reinforce some services and working procedures, about which you can read bellow.
Always with a relaxing and inspiring experience in mind, we are focusing our attention also to the details of the extraordinary hygiene and safety procedures to deal with the Covid-19. Together with our guests, we are delivering an amazing experience in Quinta Alma!
On 11th of March 2020, the World Health Organization updated the Coronavirus (COVID-19) from a Public Health Emergency with International Interest to a Pandemic.
Considering the health and safety risks, we have updated and improved all our cleaning and sterilizing protocols, following the health warnings issued by the government and health authorities.
For our guests, that are worried about the security of their booking and the risk of losing their money in case they are not allowed to travel, we created a flexible booking policy through our partners Airbnb and Booking.com
Our vision of a relaxed and inspired experience is reinforced for this new season. We have been investing in Quinta Alma’s unique beauty, adding more pedagogical spaces and ecological activities to inspire a more sustainable and self-sufficient life.
This year we have more organic food gardens – Two Food Forests and one Agro-Forest. These food gardens provide us with food and self-sufficiency. This is also pedagogical content, adding knowledge that we will happily share with our guests.
We improved the infrastructures that support the Lake area, for those who don’t want to move away and still have a private mountain beach.
More services have been created thinking in the comfort of our guests: a tasty brunch in your shelter, the take away pic-nic baskets and the thematic family dinners.
We are inviting experts in different areas like agroecology, yoga, chi-kung, ceramic, herbalism and natural cosmetic, to share their knowledge with our guests. We will also have family and children activities for reconnection with Nature, and pedagogical walks in Quinta Alma’s 50 hectare land and amazing hills.
Our wonderful farm animals are here to bond with you. The donkeys and the sheep, our huge mastiff dogs, cats and even chicken, are always ready to receive some tender love from those who want to vibrate with their pure innocent soul.
More than ever, we are committed to providing our guests with an experience of true and balanced detox from the outer world and a real reconnection with Life.
Covid-19 has impacted our life and our services but it is also pushing our vision for Quinta Alma: a source of inspiration for the change we want and a practical guide to a more self-sufficient and sustainable Life.

Security, Safety, Comfort, Nature, Off-grid & Off-line.
- Quinta Alma is already an Ecologic Retreat in the middle of Nature. A place where you are always surrounded by pure clean air. It is a retreat with privacy and freedom where each person or family can relax and reconnect. In Quinta Alma, the safety distance and peace is naturally the only thing always on.
- To ensure a social distance between guests, we will temporarily close all communal spaces like the Food Temple or the Kids Playground.
- Families are welcome to relax and children deserve a treat 🙂 This is of paramount importance and each family will receive a kit of toys and games matching the children ages. These kits are sterilized and safe.
- This year the hammocks will be for private use and they will be hanging near your own room.
Hygiene and disinfection.
- In addition to the usual deep cleaning between check-out and check-in, all rooms and beds are disinfected. Surfaces of possible contagion are sterilized.
- Every room has its own private toilet and shower, with daily cleaning.
- This season we are offering Breakfast Room Service for free. As the Food Temple is temporarily closed, we will deliver breakfast at your own shelter. To avoid the contagion risk in a communal space, everyday we will bring our famous breakfast to your nest. Delicious and made with love, plus a beautiful landscape view.
- We are adding Brunch and Picnic Baskets to the Room Service order list. Brunch after breakfast and take away Picnic baskets that you can enjoy on the lake, forest or at the beach, avoiding crowded places.
- In this region of the southwest, you can find many off-grid and sustainable living experts. We are inviting some of them to come to Quinta Alma and share their knowledge with us and our guests. Some classes will be given on a routine basis and others can be booked as private lessons. Agroecology, Herbalism, Natural Cosmetic, Ceramic, and Environmental Outdoor Education will be some of the covered topics.
- Massages, both therapeutic and relaxing, can still be booked in advance, and outdoor classes of yoga and chi-kung are part of our morning routines.
- The lake has new simple infrastructures, for you to jump in the water and indulge yourself under this amazing sun.
- We planted two Food Forests and a small Agroforest, based in Permaculture and Synthropy. These new spaces bring even more beauty, more biodiversity and food abundance. They fix water in soils and make local nature more diverse and more resilient.
- Several bird nests were installed with the help of a bird biologist, to fix more bird species in Quinta Alma’s central area. This way, we can observe how birds nest and live in this natural environment.
- More forest trails were cleared and signed. Walking around in our hills and forest has a new sense of safety and pleasant reconnection.
- We are working with biologists to create Quinta Alma’s record of biodiversity in flora and fauna. We are opening some interesting points for Nature observation in the forest.
- For individuals, couples or families we recommend you to experience at least one of the Nature Activities. This will inspire your stay and your bond with the forest’ soul.
Off-grid and off-line.
- Quinta Alma is a heavenly space for self retreat. It is a remote place outside the chaotic world, where you can balance your energy and feel inspired for a healthier, more self-sufficient and more sustainable Life.
- In Quinta Alma, we harvest our own water and electricity. Consumption is harmonized with sustainability;
- You will find that the phone signal is still quite weak and the internet WiFi is restricted to the gardens, very near the Food Temple. This hasn’t been improved. The offline and the off-grid experience allow a true and balanced detox from the outer world and unlocks the reconnection with Life.
For all of this and much more that you can find in Aljezur and on this wonderful coast,
we believe that Quinta Alma is the best hideaway to unplug and reconnect.
