    *Update*
    Our farm was burn (on 17th of August) in a big Wildfire. Now we need halp with starting the recovery of the land. The things we need to do are: cleaning, move the burned trees, build New gardenes and shade and more...
    We invite volunteers with campervan (we can supply electricity and water).
    We will really appreciate your help.


    We are a couple (Daniel and Reut) with our children (6 month and 2.5 years old), Living our dream in a beautiful land in the center of portugal.
    We invite you to join us for a while and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful farm life.
    We have here a lot of fruit trees, spring water, a big solar system and a veggie garden that we build. These allow us to live a lifestyle outside the grid. A real Haven.
    The land is surrounded by a natural forest and is isolated so it's very quiet.
    We are viewing the beautiful mountains of Serra da estrela and is 20 min driving from the cities Covilha and Fundao.
    We try to be respectful to the earth and to be a sustainable farm with a permaculture point of view.
    We would like to get some help with the garden, with natural building and with our daughter.
