Comfortable hammocks and puffs let you read a book, play some music, or just relax with that cold beer or glass of Portuguese wine.
As we love sharing our traditions, we have made available a selection of Portuguese wines from different regions of our country.
Our outdoor area has a BBQ zone, tranquil terrace, seating areas and a fire pit for evening music nights & gatherings.

I have worked with the best companies and now creating this one my own terms. Classes start at 40 U$D for a 60 minute private lesson in Paddleboarding Fitness. This one hour lesson will teach proper paddle form and technique.
The workouts are specifically modified to each individuals needs. Proper form is most important, as paddling alone without extra workouts is an amazing workout on it’s own. But of course because I am the personal trainer that I am, I love to throw in simple but challenging exercises during the training sessions. Also, I spend time practicing turns and playing around having fun.
Paddle boarding is a great way for everyone to get out on the water and gain physical benefits. Exercise and balance is possible while having fun on the water. It doesn’t matter if you hit the water for leisure basic paddle or your hitting the water with proper form and technique, there is always physical and mental health benefits.
South Florida is amazing for camping, one of our favorite loves, our family vacation time. While camping down in the Keys with a group of friends, one of our friends had brought this huge, yellow, heavy paddle board and I couldn’t wait to play. This board was now my new focus with my workouts. It was simple to figure out that if I plank on it the body will be more engaged than on land. I loved this idea, intensify the workouts, while playing on the water, what could be better? Nothing!
