Summer 2020

    The Summer of 2020 will never be forgotten, at least by us, because it is embodied with emptiness. Our B&B closed due to Corona and minor health problems we have the whole Casa Spa d’Alma complex for ourselves. And Yes, we do miss our guests but honestly, at the same time, this incredible…

Celebrating excellence.

Every day we have guests coming and everyone has a different personality. It is funny how we develop a feel for what people need from their holidays.

From 16 – 23 October we organize a week of hiking and Mindfulness. Everybody knows what hiking is, although probably not everybody knows the experience of hiking in Monchique.

Rainy book worms in sleeping bags

A place like Spa d’Alma is rich in many ways. I already told about the abundance in nature, flowers and fruits but the real richness is in the relations that we build. We are not just a place to sleep, have a nice breakfast, enjoy sun and swimming. These things are wonderful, no doubt, and…

The need for retreat

In the past before the period of industrialization people used to live in villages or small towns. Nature was integrated, even in the towns farms were present and cows, sheep and chicken roamed the streets. In these days the necessity for retreat was merely a spiritual one. It was a period of several days of…

Singing in the rain.

  The Monchique winter is often mild and from time to time we have rain. If it rains it is mostly for a day but it can really pour, solid water coming down like a massive curtain and then the next day the sun is shining again. Yesterday it was a gentle rain, a soft…

Abundance

Yesterday we made a wonderful hike from Monchique back to Spa d’Alma. It is like ten kilometers, slowly going uphill most of the time. The weather was perfect, 23o and a gentle breeze. Some small white clouds in the deep blue sky, inviting you to lay down in the grass and dream away but we…
