Wellbeing

Enjoy the feel-good factor with our range of health facilities and the life-enriching vibes of our natural environment. 

We believe in the importance of healthy body and healthy mind. So, you’ll find so much at Vale do Lobo to help you strike that balance and feel your best.

We think of it as a chance for you to leave stress behind and do what’s good for you – a time to invigorate and refresh your body, mind and spirit. And we know it’s different for everyone. It could be centring yourself through yoga and meditation, pampering yourself at the spa or beauty salon, or getting out into nurturing nature. It’s all here, ready for you to experience. 

Between our glorious natural environment and the indulgent therapeutic treatments available at the Royal Spa, Vale do Lobo is the perfect place to refresh your mind, body and spirit. Soak up the life-enriching vibes, relax and rejuvenate in our spa, enjoy a pampering session in our beauty salon or centre yourself with yoga and meditation sessions.

An experience to immerse yourself in

Our devotion to relaxation and rejuvenation, the Royal Spa, is where you’ll find therapeutic treatments to release tension and boost your natural beauty. Inspired by the essential benefits of locally harvested salt, the spa is a calm and cocooning space. It celebrates the healing and energising powers of nature in ingredients such as sea algae, organic plant extracts and the purest essential oils.

We have a series of mindfulness experiences designed to help you slow right down and commune with yourself. Reconnecting with your breath and your heartbeat gives you the ultimate grounding to boost clarity and energy while reducing tension.

And for immersion of another kind, our nature reserve connects you to the stunning Ria Formosa – one of Portugal’s most incredible havens of nature and beauty. It’s a wildlife lover’s paradise with so many species of bird to sight.

And, for when and if you need help or advice, our fully qualified Medical Centre team, including certified GPs and dentists, are there for you.

Facilities

Becoming a property owner in Portugal can be an exciting adventure, but it comes with its complexities. To help make the process of buying, moving, and ownership as efficient and effortless as possible, we have created a downloadable Buyer’s Guide that contains a wealth of useful information.


While this guide is an invaluable starting point, we strongly recommend that you seek specific and personalized advice from a local lawyer or tax advisor. Additionally, our friendly and knowledgeable Vale do Lobo Real Estate team is always available to answer your questions.

Pilates studio by Teresa Gonçalves

A space prepared for your wellbeing

The Pilates studio is a space where you will find the ideal calm and serenity for a moment of body and mind training. The Pilates method promotes strength and mobility, combining principles such as concentration, control and breathing. Through active stretching work we can achieve greater ranges of movement and thus improve the quality of everyday movements, creating a feeling of greater overall agility.

The classes last approximately one hour, are individual or in pairs, and the training is always focused on the individual needs of each student. The teachers of the studio are physiotherapists with a basic training, which gives them a more clinical and thorough look at the human body.
