    Based on the permaculture principles, we are creating a retreat where people can care for people and the earth in a sustainable manner, eating well, learning the language and emerge in the culture, and experience the slow and wonderful pace of the Portuguese life.
    The olive grove is 1 acre facing west, with one well, a few terraces with very good soil and a small building. Mature oak trees, pine, beautiful and well established olive trees, fruit trees and vines.

    you can learn the language and be emerged in the culture, and experience the slow and wonderful pace of the Portuguese life. Be involved in the early stages of the project, play a very important role on planning and designing, exchange life experiences, have fun and express yourself in the most freeing way - working with the earth, with nature. We will provide breakfast and lunch, and we will work 5 hours in the morning.
