    Hey, Olá, Bom Dia,

    We're taking a break, a project break. Summer is here and because of the ever increasing temperatures we are taking a kind of summer holiday.

    But of course we´re still looking for support, for the most relaxing task ever (see description below).
    We currently prefer two friends or a travelling couple in the van.

    Just a little about our young project.
    We have been here for almost two years now and are trying to make the world a little better, bit by bit.
    Besides a big reforestation campaign on our land (which unfortunately was and is full of eucalyptus),
    we have planted a food forest with hundreds of small fruit trees and created a large vegetable garden.
    The aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and to live as close to nature as possible.
    In the future, we will also offer soft ecotourism with retreats and seminars on sustainable, important topics.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    If you like, we are of course happy about your interest in the following topics, from which you can benefit in the long run, if you consider living alternatively yourself, against the current and having a small farm. If you want to learn more about growing food and sustainable agriculture, if you want to learn more about regeneration, reforestation, water management, organic food production, animal welfare, permaculture, cheese production, self-sufficiency, ecotourism, and so on.
    We are happy to introduce you to some things, but we are also just starting out ourselves and learn a lot by trying.

    We're taking a break, a project break.
    Summer is here and because of the ever increasing temperatures we are taking a kind of summer holiday.
    Nevertheless, we have animals and a large garden which require many hours of work every day. For this reason we are looking for animal-loving supporters.
    The only task is to go for a walk with the goats.
    Yes, that's right, you heard me right. This is really the most relaxing task ever :)

    That's almost 10 hours a week that we ask for, per person.
    (2x a week á 4 hours walking, the remaining 2 hours are buffers for cleaning the stables, renewing the water, grooming the donkeys or checking the fence).

    In return we offer a nice place for your camper or motorhome, on a small meadow with big shady trees in the middle of nature. The place has electricity and water. If you´re not traveling in your own vehicle we´ll do have a caravan or a spacous safaritent for your accomodation.

    You can choose your workingdays (better call it walkingdays ;-) ), and we´ll provide you with organic veggies out of the garden. On some evenings, however, we will cook together or hang out together. If you are looking for a safe camping site in the middle of nature, but also just a stonethrow away from th beaches, get in contact with us.

    Our little paradise is located between Aljezur and Marmelete.
    It is 15 minutes by car to Aljezur and there are all kinds of shopping facilities. Lagos is 30 minutes away, the city is bigger than Aljezur and therefore offers a lot of markets, festivals, bars and much more.
    The beautiful reservoir (Barragem de Bravura) is 10-15 minutes away. The south and west coasts can be reached in only 25 minutes drive, where you will find the most beautiful beaches in Europe, clear wonderful surfable waves and the west coast is still very untouched and wild. It is a true paradise for nature lovers and surfers.
    A very popular hiking trail is in the immediate vicinity of our property.
