Change of season

In normal times the story would be like below, but in the pandemic experience, everything that brings people together is cancelled by law. Necessity?

Four elements and a hole in the beach

  Praia do Alemao, nine o’clock in the morning, early October. The rising sun begins to spread its warmth and mixes with the freshness in the air coming from the ocean.

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 silence and…

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…
