We are a portuguese couple that decided to live a simple life in a organic farm trying to be self sustained, we are phisiotherapists who quited their jobs to embrasse this new project.
we live in the greenest province of north portugal, in a farm with 7 hec , with lots of orange and olive trees, an old farm from 19th century with mill remainings, water sources in the mountain, river 5 mn walking, 20 mn from the National Park of Peneda Geres by car. Perfect place to hike with nice and calm landscape.
we are inspired by the principles of permaculture and organic life, we are building eco houses for the visitors and trying to learn everyday a little bit more about this way of life and also trying to create a space where artists can come , relax and produce something to show evolving the small population of this village.

I think all travellers will benefit from this peacefull way of living, the farm its nice surrounded by mountains and water, beautifull landscape, the are 20 mn driving from Braga (Bracara Augusta from roman times with nice buildings, interesting museum, 56 churchs, Guimaraes(city where Portugal was born with the castle and really old history, they also and hopefully be evolved in the cultural dynamic we want in this farm exchanging new ideas and sharing all of that next to a fire in the evening.
we have some chickens, dogs, cat, sheeps to take care everyday, we also have a raised beds garden that need constant maintenance, fruit trees, building eco houses , tree house, trying to recycle everything, reforestation and cleaning the woods.all of this its rulled by the principle of fair work and simple life.
room with two bunk beds, shared bathroom, lots of place to camp and soon first eco house will be ready and it will be a accomodation solution
We have some old bikes that we can borrow, but also a car to drive you to a bus or train station nearby, amazing sights, places to bird watching, fishing,water sports in the natinal park, walk on an roman way still preserved, with your time off you can do what you want but knowing that we have a small coffee place and also a small traditional restaurant, supermarket 15mn walking or theres a van everyday that comes to our door to sell all kind of products, fish, bread, grocerys...the gastronomy its amazing here.
