  • Description


    Hi. My name is Caroline. I recently moved to Portugal with my dog to escape the ratrace. (I'm Belgian). Since the lock down, however, I feel very isolated and I hope to meet people that want to stay here for a while.
    The house is big (to big for me alone) and there is also a land of 2800 m2..
    Thinking of starting a kind of community for people that live in a camper and share the same ideas about life.

    If you like peace and nature, but don't want to be to far from everything, you will like it here.
    Since I left Belgium to find mental peace, I want to start with yoga, meditation, etc.
    Maybe I can learn how from my guests

  • Help


    There is some light chores that still has to be done, but I need four hands. Also some gardening and maintenance of the terrain. Not hard at all, but some help would be great since I have a knee injury that need surgery.. Also this lockdown put me in isolation in a new country. A helping hand and some company could give me a new energy boost.

    Can possibly accept pets

    Your dog is welcome if he/she has good manors and is nice to my dog. The property is totally fenced, so impossible to escape. Cats can't come, because my dog goes totally crazy when he sees one.
