Facilities at Quinta Marugo
A haven of peace and tranquility.
The Pagoda, living spaces, library, massage room, swimming pond, sunset point, lakes, island and other landmarks all combine to provide the best experience for you to retreat, reconnect and regenerate.
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.
Enjoy our elegant and comfortable living areas, giving yourself the pleasure of spending time on a cozy sofa reading a good book or having conversations with your fellow retreat participants/guests.
As in all the common areas, we invite you to leave your shoes and worries outside and practice barefoot comfort and luxury inside, feeling the warmth and softness of our carpets and the comfort of feet free to feel the ground.
Elegant, cozy and comfortable accommodations with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The elevated position of Quinta Marugo showcases the breath-taking scenery, while private courtyards provide a calming space to enjoy moments of peace and quiet.View bedrooms
