  • Description


    Here is a piece of paradise of Costa Vicentina.
    We are honoured to be the guardians of this place for almost one year so we are slowly learning from it what it need to thrive.
    Our names are Carolina & Marlene and we are a Portuguese couple receiving friends/volunteers temporarily.
    We are laid back, hard working and we enjoy a simple life in nature as well as a very good vegan food!
