  • Description


    We are Clara (spanish) 29, Gabriele (italian) 37 we had some experience traveling and living in different places around and now we are starting a new life project in our lovely Portugal. we are easygoing and friendly looking for a simple and creative way of life.
    Our house, an old big building whit is own land is placed in a green and peaceful area close to the river, surrounded by beautiful forests.
    We are based here since less than 1 year, actually working in organize everything: the buildings, the garden our workshops (ceramics, metalworking, woodworking, photo studio etc) we work in art and craft field, our idea is to build a place in which creativity and expression can be explored as much as possible. we have the idea to organize an art residency, a place where to share knowledge and to think about humanities.

    At moment, we have no animals, sometimes we just host sheeps of our neighbour, we are thinking the best way to start with without any exploitation, we like the idea of host retired animals coming from exploitation or something like that but still not clear ideas about.

    PS if you want to use internet the only company who receive good signal is vodafone. you can use our to check email if you need but if you need to see video etc we suggest to get here with your own sim card vodafone.
