We are Daria, Rui, Amelia and Chia!
We are nature lovers, trying to live in a minimalistic and ecological way.
Daria is an environmental engineer from Poland who make soaps, photos and yoga.
Rui is a Portuguese local, geologist who can make fire from two sticks and hang drums from gas bottles. He is also a survival teacher.
We moved 4 years ago to an old house with a garden 2 km from the beach, and it has been never-ending renovations ;)
We have a smiling baby Amelia of 2 years old and looking for someone who can babysit ( mostly in the nature)
Our second baby is a dog named Chita who loves long walks and if you give her some time will be your hugging friend, she is also good with other dogs.
We have some project that we would like to start or finish (for example: greenhouse, shadow, panting walls, making new summer garden) but we are also looking for your creativity!
Rui is working 4x4 it means that 4 days he is out of house and then 4 days back.
Daria has a business that most of the time she runs from home.
