The bright Wooden Zen House is located in the bamboo garden connecting with nature and the inner soul. This guest home and surrounding make an ideal space for those needing a deeper contemplative state for creativity and recovering, or just a place to get away from the stress of a fast paced world. It is perfect for couples and solo adventurers who seek something special, and are attracted by simplicity and originality.
On request we prepare a vegan/vegetarian breakfast and a veggie daily meal.

The space
The wooden Zen house is an ideal place to relax and/or to retreat. The tiny house covers approximately 20 square meters.
The studio consists a simply furnished open plan kitchenette and a living room with double bed with an orthopedic mattress and a single loft bed.
If the weather is fine, you can take your meals open air under the transparent canopy.
As outdoor shower and outdoor WC are attached, you have to go outside (about 5 m) to use it.
Our simple, but efficient self constructed solar water heating system will transform the sunlight into renewable energy for water heating. This sustainable energy system is designed to deliver hot water for the most of the year. In the winter you could use the gasheater for the shower.
In the colder season the wood stove will create a homely atmosphere. The wood for the woodburner will be charged based on consumption.
You will enjoy a fantastic view through the window into the garden with mountains in the background. During the summer the paved floor in front of the house is perfect for a personal yoga or meditation practice .
WLAN is available and included in the price.
Because we want to avoid that cars drive on our property, you have to walk the last 70 meters from the parking lot at our quinta to the house.

hello, we are Martina and Bernd. We are living with our daughter Zsa Zsa in the heart of Portugal and try to realize our idea of a healthy and happy life in nature. Since 20 years we work on our farm with an organic garden, food forest and bamboo garden. We want to do our best to inspire others to protect and preserve the natural world by living a simpler, greener lifestyle and we invite our guests to enjoy products from our garden. We run a small business with a guest house, apartment and a wooden zen house. The guesthouse is to rent as a complete house or partially as an apartment. It was once an old granite stone house and has been extended and renovated by us with traditional and modern eco-friendly materials. The wooden zen house was designed and build by us according to the idea of the Japanese Zen minimalism. Our 2 hectares boast natural bamboo, olive and fruit trees, the ideal surroundings for those who enjoy nature at its best. You can relax and take in the beautiful surroundings or take part in some of our arranged activities. As we are the founders and organizers of the Academy of Marcial Arts & Yoga, Tábua (DOYO) where we give ongoing local courses, we offer the possibility of daily personalized yoga practice at our farm. It is also possible to train Taekwon-Do and Wing Chun Kung Fu, as we are qualified masters and teachers. Dream it, Wish it, Do it !
