  • Description


    We are a family project that began in 2005. We completed a Permaculture Design Course at IPEP. We than purchased 2 ha(5 acres) and started working towards making our dream come true. We used the Permaculture Environmentall Design and principles, as a way of life. My grandmother´s and my dream is to have a sustainable farm/hostel.

    We like to host people that are motivated hard workers with a passion in learning sustainability and living closely with nature. Our priority is working together as a team with a positive environment. We are 3 km from the beach and 500 meters from the lake. We our very passionate about water activities:kiteboarding, windsurfing, paddleboarding, swimming, riding bikes and hiking.

    If this sounds like something that you would like to experience please feel free to send us a short and to the point biography about yourselves with your talents and passions.Obrigado, Gracias, Mahalo, Mercy, Dunken, and Gratzie
