    My vision is to create an « open space »

    A residence for artists and seekers to foster Inspiration and creativity…

    A haven where one could find a base for personal or spiritual retreat,

    The land is gorgeous, one hectare covered with plenty of trees including figues,
    olives, apples and has two houses (with a great potential one is habitable as now)

    One hectare and plenty of spots where to fit either wooden cabins, adobe houses, earthships, you name it !

    That is my idea: build a few Bungalows or Tiny house when one can be when in need of peace or privacy, quiet for digging inspirations ...

    There is already a wooden cabin set up under the shades
    and am pretty advanced restoring one of the beautiful granite walled house.

    At this point winter … spring
    I need help in gardening chopping wood and laying foundations for new small constructions.

    The focus is on building a few structures
    To be able to provide a bit of comfort for the coming guests !

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Talking music...

    Bring your instruments, voice and inspiration.

    We’ll surely be able to do some good jamming.

    I’ve made a living as professional drummer and percussionist
    In fact investigating ethnic percussions has been a thread in my traveling .
    beside there are plenty of great players in the local community
    we can go and visit and "Trade Five" LOL

    By the way if you want to improve your languages skills

    I am fluent in
    Of course French

    My Portuguese is being very welcomed by the locals.

    So sure we can benefit each other language wise too...

    You will be getting practical building knowledge in the process or from one of the numerous friends that drop by to give a hand !!

    If you are pro active and really fostering the flow of the place
    I can offer you « pocket money » for The Days You’ll be Helping

    If you have real efficient skills we can consider something a bit more consistant.

    Reason is it feels normal to give a little help if the volunteers actually doing wholesome work .
    equally a form to compensate the still basic conditions,
    On the other hand
    Don't take it as a due...

    At the moment am focused on making it happen meaning fix and build up a minimum structures so that we can turn to more creative or artistic activities.

  • Unterkunft


    I can stay in the wooden cabin !

    There are gorgeous Lovely wild nature spots for Your Van if you do travel so.

    Very soon depending on how good we progress one of the mentioned stone house will be ready to host you.

I provide some usual stuff for breakfast
    One good meal early afternoon after work.
    we’ll prepare food together...

    I personally don't eat much at night time
So you'll have to manage if you need so !

    There will be vegetarian stuff in the kitchen you can use....
    In case if you need something special 
It will be "on you" for the night meal !

    We get water from the well

    Shower with buckets (water can be warmed of course)

    Dry toilets.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    On your free days you can go visit the Serra da Estrella (highest range in Portugal)
    Or the tripy Monsanto Hill
    Monsanto is a magical Old Hill Village of house mad with boulders.
    In fact most of the small villages have kept their traditional style and are an enchanting maze walking around.

    In warm season:
    Several lakes around.
    Penha Garcia
    Idanha Nova
    Or many of the Praia Fluvial.
    Meimoa and Benquerencas have COLD water July and August included

    The proximity of mountains brings fresh air every night even during July and August
