Claudia is a nature lover who has lived on the island for 20 years.  

She has been in the health and wellness industry since 1986.

In addition to taking care of the villa, the garden, all the flowers and her guests, she also hosts retreat events throughout the year.

Claudia is supported by her dad, who cares for the garden with love, and her brother Lino, the all-rounder for all cases.


Born in South Africa, he still carries his homeland in his heart and his passion for everything that is outside.

He travels regularly between South Africa, the UK and Madeira and gives seminars and workshops.

For our company he is the all-rounder: gifted with craftsmanship and always ready to help.



Lotus, then an abandoned puppy, found refuge on Quinta do Cabeço Alto.


He quickly got used to everyday life on the property.  It wasn't long before he became the focus of attention.

In addition to his duties as the "mascot of the retreat" and guardian of the property, he also enjoys every moment with the guests in the garden.
