Casa da Cumeada

Cumeada, Alentejo

Casa da Cumeada was born out of a couple’s dream of helping to regenerate and rebalance Health and Well-being in the light of the millenary principles of Macrobiotics through healthy food (of vegetable origin) allied to natural therapies. Here we generate awareness and life style changes in a sustainable way via the path of an integrated and educational approach.

The history of the house

Located in the village of Cumeada, the Casa (House) was born in 1952 by the hand of Ti Canhão, a man of integrity, a lover of his living space, of the trees he planted here and of the animals he cared for. His nephews passed it to a family that began the reconstruction of the house. They lived here happy days and created a space adorned with creativity. Whether in the rustic frontage or in the trees that remain, as in hand-painted tiles or in “peace and quietness” imprinted in the cement, the memory of both remains alive.

Today, with the maximum use of existing materials, the Casa is reborn, giving new meanings to objects with stories and creating new spaces for growth. The organic garden, does the honors of the outer space.

Macrobiotics – Let your food be thy medication

We serve with passion and responsibility the health and well-being of each guest. To re-learn the wisdom of the past: to live according to the laws of nature, to enjoy our territory, to reuse and to respect the natural environment.
“Think globally, act locally” and “let your food be thy medication” are two of our mottos.

Accommodation includes breakfast, but we serve full meals for lunch and dinner when requested. The meals are all balanced and vegetable based.
All rooms have a private bathroom, best quality 100% cotton bed linen and bath towels.
