Our animal family consists of 4 dogs (2 big and 2 small) and 3 cats and a 1 donkey.
They are a lovely and happy bunch and are used to having other people around.
We are slowly transforming the place where we live from a long abandoned dog care facility into a beautiful, high vibe, retreat location. Which can support and encourage a person to go on an inner discovery and healing journey.

The beaches are aprox. 30 min drive away.
We have the Algarve beaches at a prox. 25 min away. The Monchique mountains prox 45 min away. Smaller towns like Silves, Loule, Lagos are worth visiting.
Hi there you beautiful people out there, we have different things we would like to ask:
* The natural swimming pool has been re-boosted, amazingly accomplished by our friends/ workaway Dmtry and Stina. See photos. - (Re-boosting the natural swimming pool which hasn't been used for 10 years, clearing, replanting, repair plastic etc.)
Still to be done:
* Create eco toilets, showers and out door kitchen from the old dog houses which are made from good metal constructions.
* Helping with making some cover for terraces, some (small) creative ventures for flower pots and decoration in general, painting of the house, decorative paintings of some walls and create outdoor decorations from recycled materials.
Once the eco toilet, shower and outdoor kitchen are ready we are looking for people who would like to stay for longer or short term with a campervan, caravan, tent on the land, help out, can house/petsit, if necessery. It is great to have a little community vibe going on.
If you like nature, being inventive and creative, personal growth, please feel welcome to contact us.
For more questions please contact us!
