Retiro Atlântico Opens
How It All Began
Within the family for five generations the land where our glamping Retiro Atlântico is located was abandoned for a long period of time. The eucalyptus trees and the bush ruled up until 2012, when Hugo decided to come here after earning his degree in Guides of Nature. Step by step, rock by rock he created a food forest together with his father and where today you find the biggest collection of rare and organic tropical and subtropical fruit trees in Portugal! In 2018 we started the construction of the glamping Retiro Atlântico and in 2019 we opened the doors to our little paradise.
