a place for men
in the middle of nowhere
boutique guesthouse for men with clothing optional pool immersed in a lush nature,
a few miles away from the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches
of the costa vicentina, southern portugal.
When we first set foot in this quinta (that is Portuguese for country estate), we were immediately carried away into another world, a place where we could feel the energy of the wild nature surrounding us and the serenity of being in a secluded yet vibrant environment. We knew this would be the perfect place to disconnect from our hectic routine and reconnect with ourselves, the people around us and nature. And this is exactly the experience that we want to offer you, an experience created by gay men for gay men.
Come and enjoy the comfort and intimacy of our rooms, relax in total privacy around our clothing-optional swimming pool, savor our natural home-made breakfast, get to know new friends sitting by the pool deck or by our natural pond while enjoying a glass of wine or during a convivial dinner, discover Alentejo and Algarve, two incredibly fascinating regions in southern Portugal that have so much to offer.... We will make sure that you will not forget your days spent at LUA NUA
There's no better way to start off your day than with an all natural, home-made breakfast... Served in our veranda under the morning sunlight. Healthy, plenty and delicious!
A few times a week, we organize a dinner for all our guests, an opportunity to enjoy good food, get to know each other and make new friends from all around the world.
Surrounded by a lush nature in a secluded and picturesque 16h land, close by the Atlantic Ocean and the most pristine and fascinating beaches of the Portuguese coast, laying under an incredibly star-lit sky…
