Our Venue

The Meio Centre

Meio is an historical building that is beautifully renovated and has been in the same family for 6 generations.

It has had previous lives as a school and so maintains an inspirational atmosphere for learning and growth.

It is spacious  with multiple spaces to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside. 

Nestled within its 4 acres of beautifully kept grounds is a swimming pool and 2 outdoor yoga spaces. The indoor dining room &  lounge are homely and cosy. 


Comfortable and stylish


All of the 6 bedrooms are modern, airy and well ventilated.

They are all very similar spacious twin rooms with comfortable beds and quality linen. All with their own modern ensuite bathrooms.  These rooms set the retreat price at £950 per person.

There is a secondary accommodation, Magnolia House which is situated a 7 minute walk away which is more luxurious with bigger swimming pool and provides solo occupancy double bed. This accom set the retreat price at £1,100 per person.


The local vicinity

The venue is named after it's location. Meio translates as 'middle' from Portguese. This refers to its location being in the middle of Portugal, nestled within one of Portugal's National Forests.

47 miles north of Lisbon. It's closest city is Santerem. 

Alcanede, a quiet picturesque village has plenty of stillness and peace. The village amenities are modest. There is a fresh fruit & veg stall, a local cafe restaurant and a supermarket.

Here we are surrounded by the natural beauty of rolling hills, rivers and ancient forestry.   

Each morning we greet mother nature in our silent meditation walks.

She will be lovingly preparing locally sourced vegetarian meals that are aligned with the yogic ethos.

3 meals a day. All lovingly prepared with a an emphasis on high quality ingredients, wholefoods, organic, nutritious and vibrant meals with an emphasis on nourishing the soul as much as fuelling the body.

We encourage you to rest and relax and take off the pressure to 'do' anything. 

There is a swimming pool in our retreat venue and a larger pool at the secondary accomodation. You are welcome to go between the two accomodations to enjoy a change of scene. 

Walking in the local area is plesant there are historical ruins and rolling hills all around. 

Or perhaps a coffee at the local village cafe.
