  • Description


    We are a small young family who moved to Portugal just over a year ago. Daan (34), Leentje (33) and Juulke (6). We are born in Belgium but like to feel at home everywhere we strand. At this moment we have renovated a very old ruin into a ruralturisme that opened its doors for the first time last summer. We are on the top of a small hill surounded by olive trees. We still need help trying to get our garden more alive and finding our spirits again into all the small little jobs to be done after this first season. The main job would be helping to build an outside kitchen/showerblock. You will sleep like a baby in our very nice belltent (this tent is a winner rent out during summer)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sometimes it feels like life has stood still where we live. And in a way that is probably true...the pure Portuguese way of live shines bright here. We only have been here for 1.5 year and we tried to mingle as much as possible. If there is something going on in the area we will try to check it out and everyone who wants to join is very welcome. We love hearing other people stories and open ours to them. Our daughter will put the pepper on the steak. She is a very spontanuous 7 year old who likes to do whatever she wants (but of course is totally not able to do that...all the time)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are an outgoing family who just moved to Portugal 19 months ago. We embrace all kinds of goodhearted people. Everybody has there own talents and contrubites in any way. We like to be surprised. As we live remote it can be hard to get around without a car. There is busses that will take you to Tomar, Coimbra, Lisbon,...if we know and have time we can bring you somewhere. We like to connect but also like people to think independant. There are no strict rules to the exchange but to much of anything is almost never a good thing...that could be our motto :)
