I've just spent 5 days at Retreat Bela Natureza experiencing their package "Smile" and had the most delightful time. I arrived there feeling stressed and exhausted and day-by-day, through deep contact with nature and their lovely family of dogs, I regained peace and quiet, inner silence and yes, my big smile! Observing dogs and sharing with them was a great experience: each one's personality, humor and attitude revealed a lot about myself. Meditating, reading, walking beside them helped me regain contact with my inner self, the main pourpose of this trip. Arembepe's beaches and town were also lovely, calm and beautiful. Small local restaurants offer great food and enviroment. Last but not least I was fortunate to be a part of a nice group guided by Evelyn, who was the person that received us and cared for us through these days, always supportive and caring.
