    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Currently only able to accept people with their own caravan/campervan as we do not yet have suitable sleeping accommodations for winter time. We share our kitchen and living room but we only have 1 bedroom. If you do have your own accommodation for sleeping then of course we will not expect so many hours or days of work.

    Also especially seeking people to stay here longer term to share the land with, terms to be negotiated depending on your needs and ours*️️️️️️

    We are in the process of setting up our quinta (small farm) for self-sufficiency, we would also eventually like to produce enough food to sell or exchange locally. We are creating growing spaces based on the ideas of synergistic gardening among other designs using Permaculture principles in setting up all systems. We are lucky enough to already have existing fruit trees and olives as well as nuts so we already have a head start on food production. The woodlands around us burned in the fires of October 2017 but already lots of good size native trees growing up so we like to help maintain this and would like to be part of reforesting more of this area with natives species. We would like to buy the land next to us so that we can be part of rewilding this area, this is something we will be working on soon.

    We have been busy rebuilding the barn into a house which we now live in, other building projects we need help with are setting up animal housing for chickens and sheep, we would also like to build a natural swimming pool and some small wildlife ponds and rock beds.

    A bit about us - Leah is passionate about food and soil, loves animals and working with nature. Andre is a skilled tree surgeon and we are both keen to be part of reforesting our local area with native species. Andre is Portuguese and grew up in this area but lived in the UK for 11 years, me (Leah) I am English, after some visits over the last few years we decided to start a new life here in Portugal. A year later we had our baby Oscar, he is now 19 months old and shares our love for being outdoors. We have friends around, a good mix of people from all over the world. We are early 30's but welcome people of all ages and backgrounds.

    Check out the photos at the bottom of this page to get a feel of what its like here and we have some photos of trips out that we regularly do such as Tabua market and mountains, lakes and river beaches.

    Our quinta is on the edge of a well populated village so you will have good opportunity to learn some of the language and experience the local culture.

    We are a friendly and sociable family, enjoying the company of others but also enjoy having a peaceful space to relax in, you will experience being part of a traditional Portuguese community so have the opportunity to learn some of the language, you will also meet other like minded friends and see other similar projects, visiting beautiful local sites and going on adventures.

    We are off grid so you must be happy with this very basic lifestyle, we have a compost toilet which is only for poops so you must be happy to wee in the woods.

    Campervans, couples, families and dogs also welcome.
