Quinta São José dos Montes

Extending in 20 hectares over the Albufeira de Castelo do Bode. In 2012 it was remodeled and adapted for a Tourism with an ecological aspect and a Retreat Centre. The breathtaking view from the main part of the Farm allows guests to observe various animals in their natural habitat, as well as peeking into the Castelo do Bode Lake. Its four apartments are arranged around a patio with a swimming pool, an old dovecote (pigeon house) transformed into a dining room, a tent for catering, a porch with barbecue and a saltwater pool for moments of pure leisure and fun in contact with Nature. Also enjoy the Gardens, well tended and cut by Edward Scissors Hands. There are also dorms for groups and a Glamping with Yurts – Mongolian Tents as accommodation, a wooden house as support and a geodesic dome for events. Right next to the city of the Templars and Ferreira de Zêzere. The old farmhouse is a place to calm the spirits and warm the soul, in communion with nature. The views? To get lost in the vastness of the brownish hills that build the Serra of Tomar. In the seventies, the farm did not escape the crisis in agriculture. Twenty years later, in the middle of the nineties, the plantation seats were restored by the current owners, who adapted them as rural tourism apartments. Rest, enjoying the genuine air of one of the largest green spots in the world and enjoy the water activities right next door, in Castelo de Bode Lake.


Quinta São José dos Montes has as its main purpose to promote in the human being, a greater contact with oneself, through the development of activities that integrate the personal, social, spiritual dimensions and the contact with the nature around them. Through its Retreat Center, the Farm promotes numerous events and retreats throughout the year, from Meditation, Yoga, Conscious Breathing, Dance, Natural Horsemanship, Shamanic practices, among many others. It is also dedicated to ecological tourism, promoting, in its essence, contact with nature and animals, providing its guests with a distance from the hectic life of urban centers, without putting aside comfort, leisure and well-being. Our main aim is to create the least environmental impact in everything we develop and move towards self-sufficiency in terms of energy, our food and our water. We have an artesian well, solar panels and we are supplied in terms of organic vegetables by TerraSana, the agricultural area belonging to the Farm, but now managed by a friendly family who are in charge of this organic farming project. We essentially promote care for the land and care for people. United for Peace and Love. We believe that in this way we contribute to a fairer world.
