    We have lived and travelled in many places and are now settled in Portugal enjoying the culture and language. We can share our experiences and learn from you. The local village has a vibrant community with many nationalities living nearby offering cultural events and regular markets. We are Portuguese speakers and continue to have lessons to improve which we will share with you. If you like music we have a guitar and ukulele.

  • Help


    We would like help in our woodland, liberate our cork oaks, pine, olive and medronha trees enabling us to pick the fruits from these trees. We have a stream running through the property which wish to clear and are also planning nature trails on the land. It is physically demanding but very rewarding! We would also like help repainting the outside of the houses.
