“Stranger, here you will do well to tarry; here our highest good is pleasure”
Ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus, Athenes, 306 B.C.

Our philosophy

Inspired by Epicurus “garden” philosophy, our nature retreat in Serra d’Arrábida, was designed bearing your wellbeing in mind. Like the Epicurean garden, apart from the city, this private eco-friendly lodge with breathtaking ocean views celebrates pleasure as the principle for a happy and healthy way of living, relying on three premises:

  • "When pleasure is present, so long as it is uninterrupted, there is no pain either of body or of mind or of both together."
  • "The goal of all acts is a serene and blissful state of mind."
  • "It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely, honorably, and justly, and it is impossible to live wisely, honourably and justly without living pleasantly."
