    In addition to ecological topics such as water treatment, land care and plants, you can become artistically active with us and get to know mosaic art. We'd be happy to teach you that. You can also benefit from our offer - more information at our webpage 🌏🎤🎸🎨🖥️🔌

  • Help


    For food and lodging we needed four hours of help from you a day (monday to friday). You will mostly help us with gardening, for example weeding or planting and that our land is kept in order. Most of the work takes place outside. it would be good if you have a gesture of footwear. we also have five dogs that you can go for a walk with from time to time.🍕🏡🫑🥕🥦🚐🛺

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live near the idyllic place "Sao Marcos da Serra" in the middle of nature and without direct neighbors. Nevertheless, it is not far to IC 1, a street that connects you very centrally. It is 40 km to Albufeira beach and the city of Aljezur, for example on the west coast, can be reached in about an hour.
