  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple in our mid 40's, who have 5 acres of land in central Portugal. We have been here for 3 years, so still fairly new too the land and have lots to do to get it back to its former glory. Therefore, we are always grateful for some help with the projects we have, along with the constant maintenance required. Our land is a terraced valley, with a stream at the bottom and in the middle of nature, but only 5 min from a village by car. We have Lots of building projects, garden projects as we begin to put all the infrastructure in place.
