At Sozo Arts, our vision is to provide memorable creative activity holidays with great hospitality and tuition. Activity holidays which perfectly combine creativity with leisure in a beautiful setting. Experience has convinced us that everyone can draw, paint or dance, given the opportunity and encouragement. The name Sozo Arts is derived from the Greek word meaning health and wholeness, which are key benefits of our creative activity holidays. Our holidays are ideal for lovers of nature and sea, due to our unique coastal setting. Our arts retreat is ideally situated close to cultural hotspots such as the charming historical towns of Obidos, Alcobaca, Leiria and Tomar.
Non – Painting Partners are welcome, and receive a discount. We can help to arrange a wide range of activities nearby, many of which take advantage of the fantastic coastline including walking, horse riding, cycling, golf, cookery, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, and paragliding.
Accommodation Only Bookings – our facilities can be booked by groups or individuals seeking a holiday or quiet retreat, with suggestions for those wishing to do something creative during their stay.
In my mind, it’s these two that set this place apart from all the other places we’ve stayed during our travels. They LOVE what they do, and they are brilliant at it. They are warm, kind, funny, artistically talented and accommodating in a way that makes you feel like you have lived there for ages. And they are both wonderful cooks! If you get a chance to come to Portugal, make sure you head an hour north of Lisbon for a few days to see these two. I promise you won’t be disappointed!” – Brian & Briana from the USA, September 2014 (via TripAdvisor).
