The Pleasure Journey Portugal-24.png

Our Venue 'Orada'

Orada is a family-owned retreat venue, located in the heart of the Odemira woods of Alentejo in the south of Portugal, near the border of the Algarve.

Monte da Orada', an ancient sanctuary, is a haven to immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty and tranquil serenity of nature and serene atmosphere. 


Orada is driven by the belief that reconnecting with nature, prioritizing health, and embracing sustainability is essential in liberating ourselves from the toxicity of modern life.

Within this harmonious setting, you are welcomed in the rustic countryside home. Surrounded by the elements... lots of sunlight, vibrant green life, overwhelming silence, and an amazing night sky.

We will be the only residents of Orada this week and we will have the mindfullness temple, a spacious panoramic hall, the sunset vistas from the panoramic rooftop terrace and the refreshing biopool all by ourselves. 

Venue & Accommodation TPJ Portugal-24


Different accommodation types are spread accros the estate situated on a mountain top.  The buildings and retreat facilities were reconstructed using traditional and organic materials, giving the property not only an authentic Portuguese feel, but also providing a healthy and comfortable environment in all weather.

Accommodation is in shared bedrooms. There is also a very limited amount of single bedrooms at an additional charge on a first come - first serve basis. (Please mention your preference in your application form).

Please note that this rural location requires some walking on uneven grounds to access the various buildings. If you have mobility problems or questions about this, please contact us.

Orada's kitchen chefs prepare every meal with all their heart, using home-grown ingredients, where possible organic- and always locally-sourced. Delicous, healthy and nutritious, vegan, and vegetarian dishes. They are happy to accommodate your needs in case of allergies or intolerances (please mention your preference in your application form).
