    Description

    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.
