Welcome to Quinta da Luz

Quinta Da Luz has been created from the granite stones of a forester’s watch tower to provide a home and location for visitors to enjoy peace and calm and find themselves. Whether through watching the never ending changes on the Serra or just listening the tinkle of water at one of the seven chakra ponds. In addition to offering visitors bed and breakfast or a place to retreat, the Quinta facilities are available for hire by those seeking to use its presence to add to their own special occasion.

In November 2017 Gregory´s first book The Seven Secrets to Living in Harmony was nominated for the 2017 Readers Choice Awards!

The book details how Gregory learnt his body was sending him signals only he was not listening, with the result he was experiencing pain and discomfort.  Once he  began to listen life became easier and more joyful. He wrote the book so that others could also benefit. In addition to case studies it contains scientific support for his  contention our beliefs limit the way we live our lives. Guidance is available on how to change this – if you so choose! Then you will be able to start, grow and achieve how  you desire your life, both personal and business, to be!

In addition to Amazon, the Seven Secrets in pdf format is available from Gregory´s  Creating Harmony site if you wish to read a copy.

Forthcoming Events


Working with Energy

2nd to 4th February 2018 there will be  Working with Energy. This offers a practical discovery of energy and how you can connect with it to help yourself, your family, friends and clients. Each person will complete exercises that empower them to understand, receive and give energy. These will enable you to integrate energy work within your daily practice.

To empower you to cultivate and use your intuition we will practice addressing and listening to it. As the intuition communicates in a variety of ways, you will learn how to notice it. Whether as a verbal response, a feeling in your body or a sense of calmness, knowing or anxiety, each can be your intuition. We will also address the role of trust in working with energy

This workshop focuses on practical application and observation.

Yoga at the Quinta

Exploring Yoga Day  – 2018 dates to be confirmed

The Quinta hosts Fran Moulder´s one day events. It is suitable for all, especially if you already have an interest in Yoga and perhaps would like to delve a little deeper into it as a lifestyle, as opposed to just a weekly class?

As well as practising asanas and learning about their benefits, the day will incorporate some partner Yoga as well as other aspects from the 8 limbs of yoga.  We will also be delving a little deeper into certain groups of asanas, for example balances, to increase focus and concentration.

You will have a chance to learn different breathing techniques (pranayama) and their benefits. For example, there is a great and simple breathing technique called Sheetali, which can greatly help you handle the Summer heat!

You will further understand the significance and importance of chanting AUM and have two sessions of the beautiful practice of Yoga Nidra (to understand more about Yoga Nidra and for a free session – http://serrayoga.com/blog/)


Each Friday evening at around 17.00 Fran Moulder holds a yoga session at the Quinta. All are welcome to join, the focus is usually on stretching and helping maintain our flexibility. Click here for some recent images on Facebook. Depending on who attends, we often finish the evening with some impromptu music and singing!

The yoga session is held in our ‘Casa’ with a donation of €7 per person.

For more details contact Caroline via the online contact form.

Retreats – 2018

The Quinta is hosting Fran Moulder´s Yoga Retreats. These five day full board retreats provide two hours of yoga each morning and afternoon. There will also be Yoga Nidra meditations. In between you simply enjoy the peace and calm of the Quinta, perhaps watching the ever changing Serra view or take a walk in the surrounding area. Or, book a massage or energy work. To find the date which suits you visit our Forthcoming Events page.

For more details contact Fran at Serra Yoga, or Caroline via the online contact form.

Gregory holds three day events in various locations around the world, including the Quinta. Each is designed to enable you to create your life of harmony. At core this means addressing beliefs which are limiting your life. For many they will appear as pain and discomfort, physical as well as emotional.

Desire to change, yet no time to?

Do you feel unable to make the next step in your life and so your conscious business or career? If so, then Gregory´s intensive Transform and Create retreat here at the Quinta is many steps deeper than the VIP days he holds.

All coaching is a deep and personal process, commit to spending four consecutive coaching days with us at the Quinta then we guarantee you will look, feel and be different by the end of these four days. The retreat is for seven days in total so that you can integrate all that has been achieved before you step back away from the Quinta.

Being coached whilst you enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Quinta also means it is possible for those empowering ad hoc conversations to just happen – one attendee said how valuable  he  found the chats whilst making tea! Recognising you may wish your accountability partner, colleague or friend to also benefit, the retreat is for two.
