  • Description


    We are a big family of 5 people, with 3 kids under 4 years old (1 boy and 2 twin girls), 3 dogs, a rabbit, a horse, a pig, several chickens (including some exotic ones), and gooses. We are animal lovers, but also are very fond of plants and flowers. We grew a garden not only for landscaping but also for food purposes, by growing vegetables and aromatic herbs which we use in the kitchen. Our place "Monte da Tribo" is a small lovely property, located in the best place in Algarve, as we are in the countryside but only 10 mins away from the beach (actually the ocean is part of our landscape). The house is simple but has a great surrounding, where you can enjoy the garden, be among the animals, chill out by the swimming pool.
    We really love to live close to nature, where we can breathe properly, feel the land beneath our feet, appreciate the simple things of life, with no rush. It is amazing to raise our children with all the freedom, watch them playing outside with no worries, getting back to the basis. Also, we are art lovers... any way of art expression (music, painting, photography, kraft, writing, etc) is inspirational to us!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    From our perspective and life philosophy, we are attempting to get back to our roots, keeping our ancestral traditions alive, with the proper updates, of course, so we can give the experience to taste our culture in many ways. Besides we are a family of travellers, we use to travel as a way of life. As we know very well to keep away from the beaten tracks everywhere we go, you can imagine what we can offer at "home". Sharing experiences with all the people we accommodate is kind of our thing!

  • Help


    As we have 3 small kids, helping with babysitting is our special need. They are all staying at home, not attending classes, so it is very hard to have spare time to focus on our jobs. They are very curious and active children, so having skills to entertain them some hours during the day, especially in the morning, would be great!
    Also, as we have the gardens and the animals to take care of, any help in these areas is also welcome.

    Space for parking camper vans

    Our property is in the countryside and in front of the house we have space for 1 campervan. The way to reach the house is narrow and there are some trees with low branches, but most of the vehicles can pass through. Perhaps you can tell us the measure of your campervan and we can check it for you.
