    Hello, we are part of a small off grid community, nestled in the beautiful Portugese countryside. Our community currently consists of 9 full time members and many more friends, visitors, retreat participants and volunteers visit throughout the year. The community was established 4 years ago so we are still growing, building, finding our way and trying to establish a more enjoyable lifestyle than the ones we left behind.

    We have 4 separate plots of land dotted around a mountain and central hub which has accommodation for retreats, visitors and volunteers. This gives people the benefit of balancing the freedom of a private place to call home and the many advantages of community life. We grow some fruit and veg, have dogs, cats, a couple chickens and some horses. We (Jamie, 35, Hannah, 33 and Phoenix, 17 months) have been part of the project for a few years (except little Phoenix with just 17 months service recorded). In 2017 we bought some land with an old ruin and space for a couple of horses. We parked up a caravan and got to work. Now, we have a useable bedroom and functional bathroom in the house. We will soon have our lovely caravan (the goddess) available as stand alone accommodation. We share the land with our 2 small/medium size pooches (very friendly) and 2 horses. It's been a rewarding experience with its share of challanges along the way. The community quadrupled from 1 to 4 plots in 18 months and we hope steady growth will continue over the coming years. Our structure is relatively independent. We have regular bring a dish, skillswaps and workshops.
    Over the Spring/Summer we host retreats, guests and volunteers with the Winter months being quieter. The community is mostly but not exclusively vegetarian. We come from a diverse range of backgrounds, Countries (UK, Germany, Belgium) and professions.

    Together and individually, we aim to live a bit closer to nature, enjoy the feeling of freedom that comes with being off grid and to make purposeful step away from governments and hierarchy that have proven themselves unfit to govern on too many occasions to be ignored.

    Great hikes with food foraging and beautiful scenery, Bike available and can offer transport to visit local towns/city's if required, community skill shares. Many lakes, mountains traditional Portugese treats to be enjoyed. The ideal person will be happy to live relatively independently, there are always people around but we can be busy at times so will not always be able to socialise. Our closest town, Fundao, is 25 minutes away by car, there is a small cafe within walking distance. If you dont have transport you should be happy to live remotely.
