  • Description


    We are a family with 3 children : 11, 9 and 4 years old.
    We are on a beautiful place in Rogil, near Aljezur, Algarve, next to the cliff , to the see, in the national park Costa Vicentina.
    We are living in traditonals yurt / yurte.
    We have a very simple life, with the goal of getting clother to self-sufficiency, experimenting, human permaculture, trying to live non violent communication, connecting with the nature and the present moment.
    We practice bio, ecological gardening with vegetables and fruit trees.
    We have a young dog and a cat.
    But we are a very normal family ! Don't have to much expectatives, we are not perfect 😀😀😀
