  • Description


    We live 'off grid' in South Alentejo, Portugal, on 30 hectares of wild land with our herd of horses. Nayana teaches essential oils for animals and natural horse care type things, here and online, and we have a BnB. We are here to learn about ourselves, horses and how best to nourish this lovely piece of land and restore it to abundance. An oasis in a crazy world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You might learn about essential oils, horses, land restoration, gardening, how to engage yourself totally in whatever you do, how to stretch your own self-limitations, to take yourself lightly and express yourself freely. But most important, you must love animals and be able to laugh at yourself to survive here.

  • Help


    We have some fencing and building projects starting now (Feb 2017), and there is always land restoration and maintenance, but most of the work is cleaning guest rooms, gardening and general maintenance. However, if you have special talents we can exploit, we will shamefully use you, and if you find your niche here we may never let you go :) We prefer people who want to come and really get involved, not just passing through on holiday.

  • Accommodation


    Usually a caravan with electricity and running water, with double bed. But if we are full with a workshop, you may be in a tent. If you have your own van we are more likely to be able to say yes to you coming.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 45 minutes from the closest beach. There is not much public transport, so your own transport is an asset, though as part of the crew we will help you get to wherever you need to go. Everyone in camp has their own living space and we eat together in the cantina. The cantina is also where we have a lot of good conversations on the deck, overlooking the lake and the long views.
