Welcome to Tao Valley, where nature takes centre stage.

Our mission is to provide you with a back to basics, immersive experience that embraces simplicity and ease whilst being held in the arms of nature.

Our Story So Far...

Tao Valley is an off grid school of nature based in the green heart of Portugal. 

Established in July 2021, from very wild and rustic beginnings, it is slowly evolving into a place where people can live humbly, immersed in the natural world.

Everything we do at Tao Valley is about harmonising with the natural order of things. Our school is a model of good, clean and self resilient living. 

A dream in the making.

Our goal is to open the doors to those needing an escape from the busy modern World, to nourish themselves in the rejuvenating practices offered by our experienced hosts, whilst being held in the nurturing arms of nature.
