Guest house Relaxscape
Estrada do Cardal Cardal, Olalhas, 2300-084 Tomar, Portugal – Great location - show map
I love living here in this part of Central Portugal, in the village of Cardal. The villagers will welcome you with open arms as they treat all the guests at Relaxscape as an extension of the family. You're guaranteed a typically warm and generous Portuguese welcome when you come to stay here! I am a change coach and yoga teacher, so you can take part in optional Vinyasa Flow yoga classes during your stay, or you might like to book a private coaching or yoga session. I also offer workshops and activities that give you a taste of rural life and what a working day is like on this little quinta and olive farm. Learn about sustainability, organic and syntropic agriculture, picking and preserving fruit and vegetables, natural remedies, vegetarian cookery, forest bathing, mindfulness and meditation, journaling and self-reflection, finding your ikigai, and nature therapy. I'll help you to discover the meaning of relaxscaping!
Tucked away in a quiet village near a beautiful swimming lake on the river Zêzere, Relaxscape is set in its own olive grove, surrounded by trees, vines and nature on all sides. It's the perfect place to relax and escape from busy everyday life. We offer yoga, reflexology and massage as optional extras and you can take part in daily activities on our working quinta too. You'll enjoy total peace and tranquility while you are here, yet it's still only 7km away from the market town of Ferreira do Zêzere, so you have the convenience of shops and restaurants nearby if you need them. The house itself has been lovingly restored retaining as many original features as possible, and designed for your comfort with an en-suite bath or waterfall shower in each room and a big open plan sitting room with fireplace and kitchen downstairs. With the sun terraces, grounds and plunge pool to enjoy you may not need to step outside, but if you do, the river beach of Bairrada is only 10 minutes walk down the hill, perfect for a refreshing swim or a paddle, or for the more active, fishing, kayaking or paddle-boarding. Around the village there are also some peaceful forest walks with spectacular views.
Relaxscape is located in the secluded village of Cardal, leading down to a delightful lagoon beach at Bairrada and Bairradinha, on the river Zêzere. There is one café in the village, a short walk away. Cardal is 8km from the small but well-equipped town of Ferreira do Zêzere which has numerous cafés, restaurants, shops, several supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, a petrol station and a fresh food market every Monday morning. 17km away is the larger town of Tomar, with its charming medieval cobbled streets, Knights Templar history and UNESCO World Heritage Convento do Cristo. Slightly further afield is the pilgrim shrine at Fátima, which is on the Caminho de Santiago trail. Relaxscape is conveniently located mid-way between Lisbon and Porto and only an hour away from the beach resorts of the Silver Coast.
