Wellness Retreat Programme

4 days | 3 nights

In a world increasingly dominated by stress, technology and a strong connection with the digital world, we invite you to take a break, and reconnect with what’s real: nature, our body, our mind…

In the endless Alentejo landscapes, where the only sound you can hear is the birds singing in distance and the wind reminding us of the passage of time and washing away all our worries, join us to discover the true meaning of Slow Living. Across 4 days, we will provide you with the tools required to relearn how to live in full alignment with nature and how to take those tools into your day-to-day life and to live in a more balanced way. Because in the end, that’s what Malhadinha Nova is all about: balance. The natural balance of nature and its ecosystems, balance in health, in wellbeing… in life.

There are special places on our planet, places of power, healing and renewal, places where the mind-body connection is enhanced and that enable us to get back in touch with our deepest innermost feelings.
– Frederick Lenz

3pm. Arrival at Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, where you will be welcomed by our team of chefs with some special treats made with seasonal and fully organic fruits and vegetables from our estate, and have a chance to taste our certificate organic wine. You will also receive a personalised Wellness Kit to carry with you throughout your whole stay and that includes:
• A Wellness Journal where you can start your daily journalling practise;
• A glass water bottle so you don’t forget to hydrate througout the day;
• A Malhadinha branded hat that you can use for your walks around the countryside as well as any outdoor activities;

• A copy of this program, printed in recycled paper, with all the activities and timetable for the following 4 days.

4pm – 6pm. Visit our estate and all the animals that live here, followed by a workshop about organic wine production, where you will be able to learn the main differences between this process and the traditional methos, the biggest trends in wine production and organic and biodynamic wine. We will also share how we transitioned to organic and sustainable production not only in wine production but in all areas of business we operate in. Finish this experience with a wine tasting of some of our new vintages of organic wines. We will provide an overview of the concept and vision behind Malhadinha Nova, the role of sustainability in our project and the desire to become fully self-sustainable.

7:30pm. Enjoy a welcome drink at our Terracota House, while enjoying a concert of classical music, that will transport you to other times and give you sensations of joy, happiness and peace that only music is capable of providing.

8:30pm. Discover the Farm to Table concept at our restaurant, where you will have the chance to taste some of the products that grow in our estate, cooked to maintain all their natural flavours and textures.

7am. Start the day very early and feel the true power of nature, in a Forest Bathing experience, a japanese tradition adopted across the world with the objective of reducing stress, reducing blood pressure and heart rate, reinforce the immune system and preserve energy reserves to improve focus, relaxation and sleep.

8:30am – 11am. Enjoy our breakfast prepared with organic fruits and vegetables from our estate, with views to our infinity pools above the Alentejo landscapes.

11:15am. Learn how to cook in a more healthy, sustainable and balanced way, with our chef, who will also give you some tips on how to take these practises into your day-to-day life.

1pm. Enjoy a light and healthy lunch, full of flavour and colour, and learn that healthy cuisine can also be delicious, as you will learn during the workshop with our chef.

4pm. Experience the calm and peaceful nightfall in the Alentejo while stimulating your creativity in a painting workshop where the limit is your imagination.

5:30pm. In a space where all the products are natural and from our country, we give you a chance to enjoy our Wellness Centre where you will find a number of treatments that will help you relax and find the peace you desire.

8pm. On this second day of the experience, we challenged our team of chefs to prepare a special dinner using only products from Malhadinha Nova and the Alentejo.

7am. Start your day in an active way by joining a sport activity of your choice. We suggest a bike tour or run around Malhadinha Nova, guided or at your own rhythm, or alternatively, a Pilates class at sunrise.

8:30am – 11am. Enjoy once again the delicious Malhadinha Nova breakfast with all the freshness nature has to offer, so you can start your day with all the necessary nutrients.

12pm. Take a chance to test your body in an intense circuits session with a Personal Trainer, that promises to be tough and fun in equal measures!

1:30pm. For lunch, we prepared a wonderful picnic in our vineyards, in full harmony with nature.

3:30pm. We invite you to visit our pottery house and use the clay from our estate in this activity that feels almost like a meditation, giving you the opportunity to relax and reflect while also stimulating your creativity.

5pm. While movement is crucial and we should prioritise regular physical activity, it is equally important to give our bodies the rest it needs. Neurologist and sleeping specialist Dr. Dulce Neutel will join us to speak about the importance of sleep across all areas of health and wellness, as well as some important tools that can help you improve your sleep.

6pm. On the day focused on taking care of our bodies, we give you once again the possibility to enjoy our Wellness Centre and find the perfect treatment to achieve the results you desire.

7pm. We will finish the day with a session of Hatha Yoga, a slower and more relaxing yoga practise that is an excellent way to give your body the opportunity to recover energy after an active day. 

To the more active members of the group, we have also prepared a fun volleyball game that promises an end of day full of laughter and competition in this group sport.

8:30pm. All senses are importante to help you connect with your body. While you enjoy a dinner of traditional Alentejo cuisine with a twist prepared by our team of chefs, feel the magic of Alentejo’s history and traditions through the voice of those who know it best, in a concert of Cante Alentejano (recognised by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage).

7:30am. Start your last day at Malhadinha with a session of yoga and meditation, while saying goodbye to the Alentejo landscapes in the most relaxing way possible.

8:30am – 11am. Enjoy a nutritious brunch with organic fresh fruits and vegetables from our estate, as well as homemade bread and pastries, and regional cheese and charcuterie.
