Did you know that with the diversity of fruits in the world you could eat a different one every day for the rest of your life?
At the glamping Retiro Atlântico you find the biggest collection of rare and organic tropical and subtropical fruit trees in Portugal!
Let yourself be involved by this biodiversity while Hugo explains a bit about each tree of our food forest. If you are lucky you might even taste a different fruit!
Here you can also find vegetables, aromatic and medicinal herbs.
This project started in 2012 when Hugo, together with his father, transformed what was once a land of eucalyptus trees and bush into an organic farm based on permaculture principles.
The certification process started in 2014 and today we are a certified organic farm by Certiplanet.
Varieties of Plants
The farm is an “oasis” of good energy, freshness, good agricultural practices, where I like to go, especially after a day of work, to breathe the aromas of the earth and all the diversity of plants there.
The vegetables and fruits from the farm taste so well, especially strawberries, raspberries and figs, my favorites!
Thank you to Hugo and Natacha for their work!! Best wishes
Retiro Atlântico´s location is excellent, with stunning views of the sea and Pico Mountain. When visiting the farm we were very impressed with the diversity of plants from around the world that grow there and how good it was to be able to taste the delicious exotic fruits that Natacha and Hugo gave us to taste. A fantastic experience! We are looking forward to returning and this time staying in the yurts!
