  • Description


    We are a family (Portuguese & German couple with three kids (12, 5, and 2 years old) living on a small Farmland.
    The next town, 6km away from us, is called Valença do Minho. We are also only half an hour away from several beaches, which you could visit in your free time. In Valença there is a direct connection (by train or by bus) to Porto.
    We did the Permaculture Design for the land and we have our vegetable garden. We are building up the irrigation system (by gravity, drop by drop) this season. There is our dog, Lua, 12 chickens, and 2 ducks and we aim to have a couple of sheep.
