the idea of our mission exists since a long time. the decision of actually daring this step and realizing it all, was made in september 2016 in loulé, portugal. it was sealed by a handshake. based on a long friendship and the will to realize a dream, we, marco and bastian, set the cornerstone for our goal.
the mission we are working on, the aim we will achieve:
"be. simply be. be independent.
about 38.000m2 are offering a place for a free unfolding and development.
a closed water circuit regenerates itself. rain water is collected. different stone layers and soil, water plants and microorganisms are ensuring a permanent self-cleaning.
320 sunny days per year are providing a basic gain of energy. solar panels are transforming sunlight into energy, which feeds the circuit. fertile soil guarantees an own production of food.
simple constructions are offering a place to decelerate. silence and privacy. focused on the essential. basics without restrictions. back to the roots. made out of wood. rentable for our guests.
a common kitchen of encounters. cook together, eat together. a tavolata. encounters connect, encounters remain. time for yourself. time to find friends.
lived art and culture. creative work. craftsmanship, music and exchange.
located in a valley with a typical algarvian character. authentic but different.
secluded but right in the middle. close to beaches and civilisation. off the beaten track. a special place on planet earth.
be. simply be. be independent."
to achieve all of this, we are truely looking forward to getting to know you.
