  • Description


    We are a family of four persons, 4 dogs and 6 cats. We own an Orchard near Vila Franca do Campo in a small parish called Ribeira das Tainhas.

    We have a very nice ocean and beautiful view over Vila Franca do Campo. Also a nice calm little beach two steps away.
    We are slowly implementing a permacultural regenerative system in our garden. We are open to have natural building skilled people here for experiences and workshops.
