Convento São Francisco de Mértola
Staying at the Convento
For art and nature lovers and for those with a genuine interest in consciousness-raising and health awareness or others who want to experience the Convento it is possible to book a studio.
We provide long term stays at reduced rates for professionals in many fields who want to re-tune and concentrate on their work.
Many of our guests are artists, designers, authors, musicians, film makers, scientists and niche entrepreneurs who use the Convento to work, study, start a new body of work, finish a project or develop new ideas .
The Convento offers a variety of apartments, hideaways and workspaces. All guests have access to the Convento's chapels, meditation space, courtyards, gardens, rivers, the originally Islamic irrigation system, nature preserve and much more.
We are a non-profit, non-governmental organisation. By staying with us you support our wildlife and biodiversity conservation projects, educational programs, local organic agriculture and cultural heritage.
