  • Description


    I´m living with my three horses on a cozy. little land situated in a piece of forest in center Portugal. I enjoy a simple lifestyle here with fresh air, clean water, the sound of birds and a beautiful view.
    I´m a dutch woman, lived 14 years in the Alpujarras in Spain and moved last year to Portugal. I speak Dutch, English, Spanish and now learning Portuguese.
    Just finished putting up a Mongolian yurt, planting some fruit trees, making a fence and a shelter for the horses and a hay storage. But there is still more to do and to develop and I can use some extra hands and skills.
    My next projects are building an outside shower and an outside kitchen. Also some more gardening and forest clearing are on the list. It´s a peaceful environment where you can work in your own tempo and helping to create more beauty.

    Beautiful environment, you can make nice walks and I also have a mountain bike that you can use. River on walking distance. Also, if you like you can learn here more about horses and I also are specialized in equine assisted coaching. Furthermore I speak well English, Dutch, Spanish and a bit of Portuguese. So you can improve your languages with me.
    I also love singing and music and cooking nice, healthy meals.

    Several (simple) building projects can use some extra hands. At this moment I´m making an outside shower, outside kitchen and compost toilet. Mainly wood. If you have (some) building skills and you like to be in nature, maybe this is a good match.
