Located in the beautiful natural park La Costa Vicentina in the region of Alentejo, Portugal, we have a magical farm/hostel named Shangrila.

Shangrila is a village inside a 4 hectares land, with different types of accommodations offered for our guest and volunteers.
Refurbished cabins, private luxurious bell tents and amazing glamping domes are surrounded by vegetable gardens, fruit trees, natural pool and our lovely and protected animals (horses, dogs, chickens and ducks)

We offer different kind of activities in the surroundings. Surf safaris, yoga retreats, mountain biking, horse riding are some of them.

Shangrila is a complete experience for our guests and volunteers. we are looking for a connection between Shangrila and our visitors. Gardening, animal care, ecological constructions, hospitality, art and sports are daily activities.

Values and lifestyle inside Shangrila: Sustainability, animal protection, respect, hard work, team work, good energies, sharing, neatness...
