We are family and friends living together on a small land in Portugal.
Our aim is to live as sustainably as possible and enjoy the nature around us. We are a year or so in to our project so we are still starting up and have lots of dreams we want to make come true.
We have animals(horses, goats, cats, dogs, chickens) and a big garden.
The land is very rich with fruit trees and space.
We are a mixed group of 3 adults and 2 children, working together and also enjoying our own space.
We live a short walking distance from the nearby village so while we are surrounded by nature it's easy to also be close to the movemt of the village and get to know the locals.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
The area we live in is very beautiful and has alot to offer for those that like to be outside. Sierra de Sao mamede is famous for its water and both close villages, castelo de Vide and Marvao have old castles that are great to explore.
We live close to different menirs and walking trails.
We are also very close to the lake where you can swim and fish.
We have a great experience with the locals in the village and its easy to enjoy spending time in the quaint Aldea of povoa e meadas.
Our home gives the opportunity to enjoy time with the animals and get closer to nature.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have lots to do on the land, from being with the animals, to mending/making fences, gardening, wood construction, tree pruning... All depends a bit on the time of year... At the moment we would love some help to make some simple Constructions and land maintenance and we always have gardening to do!
We are open to find a rhythm that suits all and are very flexible with hours and days... More or less we would like 3-4 hours of work a day for 5 days and in exchange we offer accommodation and food.
At this moment some one with experience with wood construction would be amazing as we have a few little projects to prepare the winter months.
Accommodation will be in our van. It is a high top with a double bed and cooker. So while we will usually share meals, it is also possible to have your own space and also cook seperately when desired.
We are a family and while we love to have company we also sometimes need to have our space, our land is perfect for that as all dwellings are a little distanced from each other.
We are flexible with times and hours, so it's good to talk when you arrive and we can decide on what suits us all best.
