Monte Orada is a spiritual, ecological events & retreat center nestled in the heart of a nature sanctuary in the woods of Odemira, Alentejo, South West Portugal. It is the perfect getaway for nature lovers and those who seek tranquility, connection and transformation.
If you love nature, healthy & organically grown food and are looking for peace and tranquility, you have found the right place.
Unlimited silence within an evergreen forest reservation, amazing canopy vistas, endless creek trails and a unique night sky with hardly any light pollution allow our retreat guests to completely switch off from their daily life.
Whether one likes to relax by the bio-pool, find stillness in the yoga and meditation temple, read a book in our panoramic solarium, watch the sunset from the roof top terrace or listen to the birds in our natural amphitheater, at Monte Orada our guests find the peace and soul nourishment they are looking for.
As a permaculture inspired retreat center with the aim of promoting health and transformation, we provide delicious and nutritious vegetarian food to our guests, which comes straight from our gardens.
We grow our own organic greens and herbs in the mandala gardens, as well as pines, cork oaks and arbutus berries and have just started extensive organic gardens for self-sufficient food production.

Giita Rani Tanderoe
Giita Rani will be joining us from Norway. Her work is called Inner Kingdom and is a collection of songs coming from the beautiful regions of the soul.
For a while, few years back she would enter a loving state of bliss on a daily basis, and song after song would come forth to be composed.
By synchronicity it was recorded, in India, Brazil, Spain and features musicians from around the world. Then the work went on to the streets in the humble art of busking and different stages around the world, where she picked up folk music, the languages from the ancient times.
Her music is now a merging between the two, music from the inner kingdom and around the world.
Inner Kingdom at Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes.
We are lucky to have Giita join us!
