  • Description


    Welcome to a beautiful piece of land, with a project just starting. Living the natural and good life, enjoying the river and peacefulness of the land. Projects on the list are building steps to the river and the wood cabin, installing a water pump and insulating the wood cabin. On the land there are many weeds also, it was abandoned a long time.
    Enjoy swimming and cooling off in the river, on the private river bank every day. We have drinking water from a spring/water mine that is very refreshing. A perfect place to spend the hot summer.

    We have moved to Portugal last fall and now like to give back the good experiences we had with Workaway.

    What else ...

    We are located not far from the town of Figueiró dos Vinhos (this is where I can also pick you up, there are buses going there). There are many river beaches "praias fluviais" closeby. Also you can take a hike on the lake Cabril, the big dam on the river Zezere. Coimbra is 40 min away with many things to do. Around the property are many dirt roads that can be used for jogging, hiking, walking.
