  • Description


    I’m Alexandra, but my friends like to call me Xanxa. I was born in Mozambique, while my das was away for the Portuguese war in there. Other than that, I’m completely Portuguese! I’m a Math teacher and 4 years ago I decided I should move from a big city to a small village. It was a huge change, but it was worth it! Nowadays I use to take care of one of my grandchildren and there’s a lot to take care around, as I’m rebuilding an old house and I have some farm animals, as goats and hens!

  • Help


    As I moved here only 4 years ago, there’s a lot to do around the house, still, and also there’s always a lot to do with the garden and the animals. I’m a creative person and I’m always thinking about something new to do around! I love new projects when it’s about rebuilding, gardening or painting, but usually I have no time to finish it. Also, taking care of one baby every day makes my days super busy.

    What else ...

    In the village where I’m located there’s not much to see, but you’ll be able to wake up everyday in the middle of the nature with an amazing Mountain View! You have regular bus from the village to the town (Alcobaça), and from there to the beaches around, like Nazare (where the biggest waves are!).
