We own a 2 Hectares of land in the Mondego valley in Portugal. One parcel of land is situated directly on the Mondego river and is mainly oak and mimosa woodland, and the other parcel is located at the top of the valley in a young pine forest, with spectacular views over the valley
Our plan is to reforest our woodlands with native trees, plants & attract wildlife, whilst creating permaculture systems which will enable us to grow food using minimal amounts of water. Eventually we would like to keep chickens and maybe some goats or sheep.
The vibe on the land is tranquil and peaceful and we achieve our goals, but also take plenty of time to relax.
