  • Description


    My girlfriend and I started our own project in the abundant nature of Portugal with the natural water coming from the serra da estrela and the haeling setting of the valley nature. We'll build up a camping space and natural retraite center. I'm fasciatherapist and she is psychotherapist. I speak dutch, english, french and some portuguese. You can count that I'm always friendly and correct.

    General info :

    We have a beautiful site with a mini eco campsite. There is a dry toilet, shower cabin (with hot water from the sun), outdoor kitchen. Everything basic for those who like to experience simplicity and nature.
    There is pure drinking water of high quality, from the wells on site. You can also take a cold or heated bath with a view of the valley! Electricity thanks to the installation of solar panels and associated batteries. At night it cools down almost always well to be able to sleep comfortably.
    Campfires can be made except in the summer when it is too dry.

    Feel free to ask more questions, it's nice to talk and get to know the possible expectations of both sides :)

    The quinta is within walking distance of a village with a river beach, a typical Portuguese café, a cozy bar, and also a mini shop.
