SUSTAINABILITY

Monte Velho is a family-run, self-sustaining retreat centre with a strong passion for reconnecting its visitors with nature. It is dedicated to hosting retreats that promote healthy living and the education of sustainable living.

Ecological Philosophy and practice for Sustainability Monte Velho is sharing space and a holistic learning centre. We want to share our experience with our guests so that everyone can benefit from reconnecting with Nature, protecting it and integrating it in a sustainable way in our life and daily practices. It is a daily learning experience and the changes each person makes in his or her lifestyle happen gradually. We are always open to learning from other people’s experiences. New ideas and projects on sustainability are more than welcome.

We aim to inspire others to do more and better for the health of our planet and for the future of new generations. We strive for a sustainable approach to energy, water, waste management, building and environmental awareness, which is why we are constantly seeking to improve the quality of our services and getting there with less environmental impact. 

The Monte Velho Retreat Centre´s commitment to sustainability is embedded in our DNA—it is who we are, what we do and how we do it. We are in sync with our clients, staff and other stakeholders who think the same way and who really want to reduce their social and environmental impact to do the same.
