We are 10 minutes walking distance to one of the most stunning coastline in Sintra´s National Park. 


With an extensive beach along the cliffs praia da Aguda is wild and beautiful the access is for the adventurous ones but beauty and tranquility awaits at the end of the stairs. Along the coast, 2 km each way, you will find Magoito beach and Azenhas do Mar, a beautiful and awe-inspiring village perched on the cliffs. 


This location is ideal for long walks of exploration and close contact with Nature´s beauty.


The venue is a high quality house that can accommodate 8 persons in three bedroooms, 4 in the master bedroom and the rest in 2 twin rooms.


There are 3 bathrooms available.


There are a few relaxing areas and a living room with comfortable sofas to chill out.and a large terrace to enjoy outside. 300 m2 of lawn invite you to connect to mother nature and delight with the sounds of birds and the ocean in the background. 


I am Miya and I was born in Lisbon.

I have an adult son who I love very much.

When I cook, I remember my grandmother who was the best chef in the world.

I come from very different professional experiences.

My initial formation was in Social Services, however, it is in the confection of food that I feel most fulfilled, as I believe it is also a path for love and healing. 

In the past I was involved in culinary aspects that encompassed health and wellbeing. I participated in workshops of making bread, sweets, natural desserts, brunches and fast meals, as well as the elaboration of weekly menus at the Macrobiotic Institute of Portugal. 

I investigate and practice the art of confectioning recipes that are totally plant based, fermented foods and natural supplements.

Spiritual experience:

This is the most cherished and personal area of my life.

This path, of several years, is actualised with Tony Samara and with Kira.

“Eating consciously is bringing spirituality into the way we eat.”

Tony Samara

I am Anina and I am 45 years old.

I have the greatest love within me, that of being a Mother.

I have two children that emanate within me the love of courage & freedom, as well as the persistency to follow my dreams.

My professional experience is diversified and profoundly gratifying.

The focus of all my experiences is the same: people and communication.

What prevailed most within me is the field of wellbeing.

The connections to plants, natural supplements & essential oils, and the learning & sharing with health practitioners who embedded within me the teachings of foods & nutrients that nurture e bring about wellbeing.

I studied and embraced courses.

Courses in Reiki, Crystal Therapy and Meditation.

I initiated Energetic Therapies, nurturing and caring for people.

The spiritual world offered me a present from the Universe.

I speak of Tony Samara and all those who belong to this family. It is like coming back home.

Evolving, growing and being in this ever rapid world.

Shamabllah has brought me more growth, focus, determination, confidence,

a total surrendering to one day at a time, with daily learning’s on a collective level, and a union with the spiritual home I believe in
