  • Description


    We are a family with 3 children : 15, 11 and 6 years old.
    We are on a beautiful place near Aljezur, Algarve, next to the national park Costa Vicentina.
    We are living in simple tiny house and yurta in the middle of the nature.
    We have a 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 2 dogs (australian shepard), a cat and chickens.
    But we are a very normal family ! Don't have to much expectatives, we are not perfect 😀😀😀
