Minimalist Retreat, Leiria, Portugal

Via our elephriends at EcoSalon.

We live in an over-connected world of smartphones, social networking, and 24-hour news cycles. Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all. Whether you dream of a wood cabin in the forest, a cabana on an empty beach, or a treehouse outfitted in sustainable materials, there’s a zen retreat that’s sure to fit the bill.

Let this collection of images inspire your next escape.
