OUR
EXPERIENCES

We designed these experiences based on our own experience of the Region and what we love to do and share in it. For us it is imperative that our guests feel the true essence of this land and its people, and that authenticity is the keyword in all the experiences we propose. Our programs have guiding lines, but we keep the whole experience to the rhythm of the river itself, sometimes calm and patient, contemplative and absorbing the best of each place it passes through, sometimes more turbulent and excited to feel the pulse of life that unfolds within and outside of itself. It wouldn’t be strange to stop to greet someone we haven’t seen for a long time and who can now also become your friend. That’s how it is around here, a time outside of time, a sense of community where everyone occupies their own place. Trust and let yourself be carried away!

1. WINE TASTING

Enjoy tasting the most exquisite wines from Quinta Casal de Tralhariz, appreciating the flavors and aromas of these wines produced on a small scale and exclusively for our guests.  If you wish, it’s possible to add a tasting of regional products of your choice, available in our ‘Regional Tapas’ service.

THE BEST OF NATURE AT YOUR SERVICE!

A Health and Wellbeing space in harmony with the surrounding nature, featuring a set of therapies designed with you in mind. All massages use AROMATHERAPY, that is, a personalized combination of pure biological essential oils, each with a specific therapeutic effect.

LOCALIZED MASSAGE

Torso massage, ideal for eliminating contractures that accumulate daily in the cervical, dorsal and lumbar areas, resulting from continued effort, poor posture or stress. The spine and surrounding musculature is one of the most affected areas by muscular and skeletal effort, accumulating various tensions that manifest themselves in the form of discomfort and localized pain, leading to general discomfort. Free yourself from the weight of everyday life, feel light again!

FOOT REFLEXOLOGY

Foot Reflexology is based on stimulating specific points on the soles of the feet, rebalancing the entire organism. In this therapy, the soles of the feet are a coded map of the entire organism in which certain points correspond to organs, glands and structures of the organism. By pressing these points with your fingers, the corresponding areas are stimulated. Muscle relaxation is also performed, as well as lymphatic drainage of the lower limbs. A world of health and relaxation, at your feet!

AYURVEDIC MASSAGE

Traditional Indian massage with a strong focus on joint and muscle work, as well as emotional and energetic balance. A wave of physical and mental well-being, on a journey into your interior, which will bring you a feeling of tranquillity and deep relaxation.
