  • Description


    Welcome :)

    Dear travels, dear souls
    The gardens needs loving, hands.
    There are different gardens- veg garden and fruit trees and flower garden.
    In amazing location.

    The river is just around the corner, nature is all over, and now green more then ever!

    You can choose, sleeping in a tent or in the beautiful wooden cabinet which I call the star shuttle. (In the pictures)

    Lucidity and clarity are essential.
    The place is a base for self development, and retreats are being held here some times.

    The setting is in a Quinta to the footage of the magical mountains of the stars (Serra De Estrela, Sandomil, near Seia) which once was known as Lucitania. The mountains full with crystals sites, rivers and goats.

    So whats this place is all about?
    focusing on reconstructing the gentle fabric of life. How us as modern people can connect to nature, what kind of Community life can we have when each person is independent human being and cooperations created out of free will. (The place is not a community. Although as neighborhood, friends and volunteers we create community life). What is the place of spirituality in our life, which ceremonies we want to bring about?

    *please notice that the quinta is not a community. Although there is beautiful tribe of neighborhoods you might find yourself with many hours of being by yourself.
    Perfect for self development, books writers etc.
    Minimum period is 20 days.

    *️️️️️️️️reforesting (continue to plant many trees!)
    If you are a starseed or have special attraction for planting trees, if you are an experienced gardener or have special skills in building with earth or wood, if you love nature and seek some quiet in your life and if you simply feel atracted and qurios please contact.
