  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple: Cristina portuguese-belgium and Georges french-catalan; we live on the serra of Monchique in a great place with vue on the ocean at 600 m high; we are in full nature at 5 kms from Monchique.
    We started the project of farm of spirulina seven years ago; for us it is a ecological project that can be reproduced in many places of Portugal; it allows to live, work and occupy these unused lands so numerous here.
    We propose a stay under tent with hot water shower and wifi; we use dry toilets.We ask 5 hours/day, 5 days/week and accept only 2 persons at the same time.
    Now we are working on the maintenance of the land and do this place nicer: there are manual works like cleaning the land..... or building.
    Feel welcome to contact us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    we live in Portugal since 10 years; we have a good knowledge about portuguese daily life, part of social life in our small town of Monchique
    we travelled quite a lot around the world and feel citizens of this small respectful planet. It is a nice place for walks and peace; we enjoy this peaceful area in the serra but also are involved in local actions of Transition.
