This is a place, an idea and a project in southern Portugal / Alentejo. The place has a size of approx. 140.000m² with a typical landscape of the Alentejo. We live here for several years with our horses and some other animals self-sufficient. We draw electricity from the sun and water from the earth. We sometimes produce our food in the garden, bake our own bread and lead a vegan lifestyle. Since we are body, mind and soul, we also lead a spiritual life. For the meditations and other retreats, we have our own little "T-Temple". The "T" can also be substituted for transformation, or talk in the temple, or even for a tea celebration. We have many ideas that we can realize on this site and that is what we need help with. It is also a place that is particularly suitable for sharing with people who share our philosophy. If you would like to see our place from a different perspective, you can visit us on our website or on YouTube. There are different tasks to fulfill. We work in the landscape care, such as cleaning work on the horse pastures, tree care, harvest of olives, but also small construction work. Crafting skills of volunteers may also be implemented by realizing spontaneous ideas. Partly we have guests here to meet, but often integrate into our lives. We love to sit around the campfire in the evening and would be happy if you could play a musical instrument. We love nature because we are part of it, that's why we are here, "In the middle of nowhere". Also around our place is a lot of nature with its wonderful beauties. We are surrounded by the elements, where we do not see the fire as an element, rather the light. We ride our horses very little, so we will not let them do this job for other people. But we like to spend time with them and have already established a very good relationship with them and them to us. In my free time, I like to introduce you to the secret of these wonderful animals. We would be happy if you support us for about 6 hours on 5 days a week. For this we provide accommodation in the Hobbit Cave, or the still to be finished straw bales room and the food available. Further exchange opportunities can be arranged individually on site. We look forward to your acquaintance.

We are a German couple with a lot of experience in the communication with horses and spiritual background. Through our previous life, which also led through several countries, we were allowed to get to know many laws of nature of the elements and life principles, such as the shadow principle, the law of attraction and the law of polarity. We are happy to pass on our findings to the visitors of our place. If you are interested in typical national culture, you should choose a different place.
Because most of the work takes place outdoors in nature, you should have the physical prerequisites and good endurance. If you are a couple, physically lighter work can be done by the female part, but not necessarily. You are welcome to share special skills beforehand. The work includes the cleaning of the horse pasture of bushes and stones, craft work on small construction projects, gardening and landscape maintenance.
The Hobbit cave has two normal beds, one closet for each person, as well as a desk and fridge. The toilet with vanity is very close. There is a new shower for the volunteers to be built, but at the moment the shower from our apartment can be used. A second room is under construction and is equipped with straw bale beds. In case of high demand, we can create further accommodations. We convert unused horse boxes into apartments. This is one of many ideas.
We usually stay on our farm constantly and participate in the work. Nevertheless, an independent task should be possible. We love having fun at work and know that our body is a musculoskeletal system. hahaha
