    Description

    We are an off grid, small farm in central Portugal. Donkey's, dog's, cat's, duck's and chicken's roam the land. There is a small veggie garden as well as plenty of yummy fruit trees olive, fig, pear and orange to name a few. We enjoy making music and game nights in the evenings and cooking home grown healthy food. We enjoy yoga, meditation and alternative healing methods. We are all very friendly, open minded and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
