    Description

    Hello, we're a French couple in our forties.

    We have been living in Portugal, in the Santarem region for 3 years. because vitamin D intake is essential to help my wife fight her disease.

    We live in the countryside, with an exceptional view, in a house of 200 m2 with one guest room and a land of 5000 m2 in the middle of olive trees.

    The city of Santarem (Gothic capital) is 10 minutes away, and we are ideally located to discover Portugal (bus, trains, taxis, private parking)
    Our house is close to the Camino de Santiago de Compostel, close to the Chemin des Pellerins that leads to Fatima.

    We are developing our dogs (7) and cats (12) breeding,

    If you like nature, animals and peace and quiet, you've come to the right place.
