    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Its a chance to live in Portugal as part of a small community, learn the language and be emerged in the culture of a small village. You can learn a lot about living off grid and the challenges that can bring.

    Accommodation

    Would be best at this time of year if you have your own van, its cold and frosty! When its warmer a tent will be provided in you own little private piece of land, with inflatable mattress, pillows etc.
    We have a compost toilet and solar shower (summer) indoor shower when its too cold!
    Food will be provided, a lot from our own garden and drinks (not alcohol) happy for you to drink just not paying for it lol! But you can wake up every morning in the middle of nature, in our peaceful valley.
