7. Burnout - Retreat

There are moments in life where everything in the head starts to turn.

You need a time-out to be able to breathe in a completely different environment in order to collect your ideas and to feel good again.

The small, well-arranged and clean city of Serpa, as well as the tranquility of the Alentejo offer the best condition for such a retreat. Here you are in a new rural environment. Nevertheless, there is a cultural link with the "old" world from which you come from. There is thus not a radical break taking place, but your are in a new place in which your get well along.


Serpa Lovers prepares unique programs for people in a burn-out situation or with the desire to retreat .

Each person will be able to agree on the type of activity that best suits their situation. To feel better, it is often simply necessary to do something different!
