Quinta Marugo's house and swimming pond

Facilities & Food

The Pagoda

Quinta Marugo’s magical pavilion, a 70 m2 oasis, was designed to offer tranquility and a deep sense of awe with its stunning panoramic views. Practicing mindfulness, yoga, Qigong, sharing circles or simply sitting alone and enjoying the view of endless rolling hills or of the rising full moon, will leave you with a profound feeling of peace, clarity and connection to what matters to you.

The Arena

It is an outdoor area of about 300 m2 with a central fire pit for fire ceremonies, full moon ceremonies, dance and horse assisted activities. For fire ceremonies, a heads up that they are more difficult during the summer months due to fire prevention policies, but for small groups, we can arrange something near the natural pond area.
