  • Description


    We are an enchanting 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. The sun is usually shining and the kettle is always singing. We enjoy making music and game nights in the evenings and cooking and eating home grown healthy food. We enjoy yoga, meditation and alternative healing methods. We are all very friendly, open minded people living here and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
