  • Description


    We are a family with two children aged 15 and 12 years. We are Spanish but during the months of July and August, during this time we live in this wonderful farm of one hectare of land, located oceanfront. This property is located in a nature reserve on the outskirts of a small fishing village, which still subsist solely on fishing and agriculture.

    In previous years, we have traveled and worked in the field of international cooperation in development projects with NGOs and although we are Spanish, we traveling and living in this area of Brazil, more than twenty years, so you'll know and love so much the Portuguese language and the idiosyncrasies of its people.

    Our project aims to somehow be the tool to share and exchange experiences both professional and human. With the teamwork of volunteers and our family, we want to give this estate of sufficient infrastructure needed in construction, landscaping and horticulture, that with such natural and ecological resources, added to existing as fishing , one can live a self-sufficient and consistent with the environment of the area.

    We have already renovated space of about 250m2 , for artists residency kitesurf residence , etc. We have also built a house with terraces and rooms , fully habitable and prosperous , where we stayed with friends and volunteers excited about our project.
