A unique guesthouse in Portugal for musicians and music lovers
Live the music. Share the joy.
Experience a unique holiday for music lovers where you can meet and stay with other travellers from around the world who also have a deep artistic passion. The Groove House offers you a deeply memorable way of sharing joy through music, and doing so in a safe, cosy, and relaxed environment.
Surrounded by breathtaking views of natural beauty, we’re a short 30-minute taxi from Portugal’s main airport. Not only is Lisbon the sunniest capital in Europe, it’s also the only one with beaches! This is your well-deserved getaway from stresses of the new reality. Connect with nature by strolling through our old grove forest, share campfire songs at the Sunset Cove, or get inspired by new friends and their stories while bathed in a sea of music.
As a way of helping you wind down, we gently encourage ‘Flow’, a sort of effortless state of heightened awareness that’s also known as being in the Groove. You might be in it if you’re free-flowing a jam session, appreciating the music, or just absorbing the soothing sounds of nature in solitude. You’re welcome to stay as long as you need to fully let go and allow that mind to relax.
The Sunset Lounge offers inspirational views and fireplace to keep warm over the winter. The ‘Sacred Bassment’ underneath has complete sound isolation so you can let those creative juices flow at night with our epic sound system. Both rooms are connected to a 32-channel mixer for recording or jamming – while everyone listens on headphones. Each room has plenty of ventilation for keeping Covid at bay.
Once Covid is less of a significant risk, you’re welcome to stay overnight. We have a range of bedrooms, from en suite private rooms to a dorm with six beds, each with curtains for complete privacy (up to ten guests, for now).
We’d really love to help you reignite a forgotten passion and finallly unleash the artist inside, whether you think you have it or not. On a physical level, more effort usually leads to better results…but on the level of mind and creativity, being in the Groove means you passively enjoy and feel your body as it takes its own creative journey. It helps to let go of that nagging, inner critic…then we might focus on being present in the moment. While Covid is around, we offer unique and Covid-safe jam sessions for advanced musicians.
We’re about embracing experience as it is, rather than escaping life’s problems. We’re more about living the moment than capturing it…which is why we encourage you to leave any distractions behind to fully immerse yourself here and enjoy sharing the experience with new friends. We offer a discount if you hand in your smartphone during your whole stay 😉
…and what better way to keep healthy than to feast on some of our homemade organic food, freshly picked from the garden! All the food you’ll need is included when you book a room (hope you’re OK with a veggie diet).
We’re a 30 min drive from Lisbon airport, where you can catch an Uber for €20, a €30 taxi…or you could decide to check out Lisbon for a day before taking a local train straight here.
