  • Description


    We are a family of four
    We love the quiet life and peaceful nature, so we moved to the southwest of Portugal to start a new life.
    we choose this spot because it's surrounded by charming ancient cork trees , beautiful simple villages and close to the beautiful beaches of south west Portugal. We moved to our land that has not been touched for 70 years and the land here is free from human intervention for better or worse
    We use local soil and natural materials for construction and trying to work with nature and what it has to offer us. We cultivate a vegetable garden and act according to the Idea of Pharmaculture for the soil, humans and nature.
    We host couples and singles

    we create together a new life on this land that was not been used for so long :)
