  • Description

    Description

    We are a young couple, Tania and Matteo, living in Tania’s family farm with the plan of transforming it into a more regenerative project which will benefit not only us, but our family, the land and animals that habit it.

    The project consists on turning the farm into a place where other people can come and learned different things, meditation, personal development or Reforestation and Permaculture, and at the same time contribut with their beings and have a good time in the middle of Alentejo.

    In a further future we wish to have couples with the same view of us taking one hectare of land and using it to creat a wonderful space for their family that would be coherent with what we envision.

    For now our focus is to work on our hectare of land and make it regenerative and welcoming for our coming baby. This work will be more based on working with the land by creating a garden and planting trees.

    We may also need some help with fixing some thing up in our current house. This includes painting some doors and furniture or some maintenance or improvements.

    For August and September we are looking for someone who is willing to stay here looking after our garden and perhaps even improving it while we will be in Lisbon to welcome this new human being. We wish to exangue housing and food from our garden for 1/2 hour of work every day.


    This is more or less our vision and wishes,
    We hope to see you soon and to have great moments of creating and relaxing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you join us you will have the chance to experience living life in a farm on a Area of Portugal which is becoming incrisingle conscious. We have different communities close to us, including Tamera and Monte Sahara, from Mooji.

    Living in a farm has the great advantage of having a constante relaxing, silence environment surrounding us and all the work and responsibility that takes to build a regenerative live.

    So, you might learn about reforestation, agroflorest, Permaculture or different methodologies to face life and relate to people.

    Matteo has been traveling through a lot of places and experienced many great things so talking to him can give you a lot.

    Tania is more focused on living a peaceful simple life, so you might be contaminated by her calm way of living.

    Also we have VEGAN meals so you can experience this in case you haven't already.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a bit in the middle of nowhere so is hard to move around without a car of your own.
    Which if is the case, you are still welcome, we will pick you up either from a train or bus station, simply you won’t be able to move around freely.

    If you have your own car, you can visit many nice places around here, such as the communities we mencioned above, the beaches either in Costa Vicentina which is amazing and more will or Algarve which is also amazing, but more comercial. Both will be around 1-1:30h of distance by car.

    If you like lakes there are two options around 30m distance by car which are also quite nice.

    And for parties, the famous Tojeiro Pizza Party is around 1:30h from here by car. You can camp there and stay around the area the next day for it’s also worthy to visit.
