    We are a family living on a big piece of land. We have chicken, two cats and a dog. There is also a small carpentry workshop on the land. We have all sorts of projects we could use help with.
    There is always something here to do but its also a great place to just hang out.

    We are situated near a small village. Walking distance approx. 10--15 minutes
    and about 4 km from the nearest beach.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The south west algarve is a unique and beautiful place.
    There are several beaches to explore and the winters here are mild and mostly sunny.
    We live completely off-grid which brings a few challenges, but over the years we have established everything for our needs.
    As I am a trained and skilled carpenter, working in this trade for 20 years now you might be able to also pick up a few tricks and hints when it comes to woodworking.
    Off course I am also always interested in picking up new ideas and approaches to projects no matter what kind. I love to learn myself.
