We are Rik & Pat and came out to Portugal 6 years ago now, to live a better, healthier more peaceful life, we try to live carefully on the land, we grow all our own veggies, wine, and olives. We like to live as simply as possible, no tv, nor internet at home, but we do also have a good social life with real community spirit.
