    This is a beautiful farm, surrounded by nature, its a magical hideaway with a calming energy. Held in a green leafy valley, while only 4km to the nearest town, it feels a million miles away. Secluded, surrounded by trees and wildlife.

    We moved here in June 2018 having relocated to Portugal after much travel and exploration. The farm has a large main house, two small cottages and stables which have been transformed over the last year. We also have a converted yoga shala, a hillside yoga deck and our summer glamping tents.

    We're a down to earth couple in their late 30's who love healthy organic food, travel and the occasional glass of wine. We're pretty introverted but enjoy social moments and hosting gatherings for our community. Our intention is that together with the people we live and collaborate with, we live in a harmonious environment and cultivate a deeper connection with Nature inside and out. And enjoy ourselves along the way.

    We are both trained in trauma-informed holistic therapies such as acupuncture, yoga and qi gong and hosted workshops around the world. We are inspired by beautiful art, love music, dancing, BBQ's with friends and being by the sea. We wanted to create a beautiful space that nurtures and inspires us to reconnect with Nature.

    Our luscious land is located 30 minutes north of Lisbon, near Mafra. It is just 15 minutes drive from the famous Ericeira surf beaches nevertheless we are remote - sometimes it feels like a bubble!

    We started a permaculture project here, with composting, an edible garden and cultivating fruit trees which we need support from workaways with. All the food is for personal consumption and you're welcome to grow your own with us too. We grow herbs, tomatoes, chard, kale, beans, cucumbers and squash in abundance. We also have apple, pear, figs, peaches, pomegranates, olives and plum trees.

    Our neighbours are a Wolf Sanctuary and a National Park (Tapeda de Mafra) which are definitely worth visiting.

    We have about 5 hectares and are surrounded by fruit trees and cork in a beautiful secluded valley. Everyone who visits finds it magical, witnessing deer, owls and hearing the sounds of wolf's at night adds to ambience of this special spot.
