ABOUT US

Macha & Thibault

Macha de Catheu

Deux designers français passionnés de nature, d’art et d’humain.

Sortis de la même et prestigieuse école d’art et d’architecture parisienne : Penninghen, ils ont eu des parcours professionnels différents.

Macha a fondé sa marque « Les cerises de Mars » en créant des collections de bijoux et de foulards, mettant un point d’honneur à travailler avec des ateliers français. Possédant sa propre boutique dans le VIIe arrondissement de Paris, elle fut également distribuée au Bon marché, au Printemps, mais aussi au Japon chez Isetan.

Thiabault de Catheu

Thibault s’est chargé pendant plus  15 ans de créer et développer l’image de marque de différentes maisons ainsi que de nombreux concepts retail !

 

Ensemble, ils se chargent de plusieurs projets design et élargissent leur palette : architecture d’intérieur, design mobilier, objets, céramiques, dessins… 

 

En 2018, ils décident de quitter Paris pour vivre leur rêve et leur passion : créer un lieu de vie tourné autour de la nature et de l’art.

The place

Located only 30 minutes away from Lisbon airport, Terra Quinta is made of five hectares of land.

We have designed and shaped this land with different areas, to create a unique sanctuary for the body and mind. 

Our rooms

Located in the old stables, our rooms reflect the essence of our garden. They incarnate a mix of simplicity and creativity. We have chosen wooden furniture and the purity of linen for our beddings. Each room is unique, with its own decor and soul.

Most of our bedrooms open to a green terrace with a lounge area.

Our workshop

We have converted an old barn into a spacious loft with two floors. 

The ground floor hosts a wooden stove, a juice bar and allows up to 50 people to practice yoga or meditation. Upstairs, the space is entirely dedicated to art, with a ceramic workshop, paintings, and various pieces of art.

Casa Principale

 

 

En pénétrant dans notre salon/salle à manger, vous serez immédiatement enveloppé par une atmosphère chaleureuse et accueillante. Chaque détail a été pensé avec amour et attention, des meubles confortables et élégants aux accessoires décoratifs soigneusement sélectionnés. Des coussins moelleux invitent à la détente. Les œuvres d'art locales ornent les murs, ajoutant une touche de couleur et de caractère à l'espace.

Notre salon / salle à manger est bien plus qu'un simple lieu de rassemblement. C'est un endroit où les cœurs s'ouvrent, où les palais sont comblés et où les esprits s'élèvent. Des étagères débordantes de livres invitent à l'exploration et à la découverte, offrant une multitude de lectures pour nourrir l'esprit et l'âme.

 

The arena 

Set around a large fire pit, the arena – a 36 meters circle evoking the earth- offers a journey into the five elements: fire, air, water, metal, stars. The energy rising from it is 

strong and powerful. Here, you will enjoy a lunar cycle made of a thousand flowers, a thoughtful mandala, 12 totems, mineral spaces representing the 5 continents where gigantic sculptures will be exhibited.

The pergola

Under this delightful, shaded space, overlooking the rolling plains of the Ribatejo, you can enjoy peace and quiet. Indulge in a yoga class, meditate, or even simply enjoy the sunrise in front of your eyes.

The vegetable garden

Our fantastic organic vegetable and fruit garden spreads over one hectare of land and keeps on growing. It provides fresh ingredients to our kitchen throughout the year, giving our food an extra special taste of love and sunshine.

Seasonality

Over the seasons, we harvest:  peas, arugula, fennel and artichokes (Spring); black, yellow and red tomatoes, juicy strawberries, sweet raspberries and melons (Summer); figs, kale, cauliflower and squash (Autumn & Winter). We never use pesticides and farm responsibly and mindfully, with this constant belief that eating organically is not only better for the planet but also for our wellbeing.

Sustainability

Terra quinta

Located in the heart of nature, next to pine trees and majestic cork oak trees, our 20-meter-long pool is a peaceful heaven. While swimming, you can admire the stunning hills of the Portuguese countryside. 

The pool itself is surrounded by soft mattresses and hammocks, the perfect spots to take a nap in the afternoon.

The magic cabins

At the end of a shady path, nestled amongst iconic Portuguese cork oak trees, you will find two enchanted cabins designed for treatments and massages. Between them, stands a large sandy space where you can practice yoga or have a rest. A true heaven on earth!
