  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're in the heart of Alentejo, a particular region in Portugal known for its country life, good wines, good people, and the perfect "slow living" example.
    If you are hoping to slow down your life for a while, maybe learn a new language (portuguese), meet different people, share knowledge in all kinds of ways, join me in my adventure!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Currently, my guests can stay with us in the first restored house our in our caravan.
    I have 4 wells in the property, but we don't have piped water yet. We use the water from the wells to wash our hands and fulfill basic needs while we're there. I have a little village nearby, 1km away from the property, where i have a house with a nice full bathroom for baths and other needs for our guests, once the bathroom in the property is currently being built.
    I can provide tents and bedding. Guests with caravans and vans have a lot of space in the property to accomodate themselves and are more than welcome to bring their "houses on wheels" as well.
    I provide 2 complete meals: , lunch and dinner. We offer local food experiences based in vegan , vegetarian and normal meals .

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our land is based 1km away from a small village, known for being the "Capital of Clay" for years, called Beringel. It has lots of restaurants with amazing food and wine, pastries with the best bread around, supermarkets, a pharmacy and so on.

    There are also several dams around the land to watch beautiful sunsets and take nice long walks and pictures.

    Besides that, in a 10 min drive by car, that we are more than welcome to provide our guests, we arrive a city named Beja. It has a lot of places to visit, such as historical parts of the city. One of them is the castle (Castelo de Beja), known for having Portugal's tallest manor house. There are many other places to visit, such as historical churches, museums, restaurants well known for their amazing "alentejana" food, beautiful parks and gardens, theater and movie theater, and so on. The city has everything to fulfill your needs and desires, such as a hospital, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, beautiful places to visit and live wonderful experiences!

    We all speak english fluently, a bit of spanish and, obviously, portuguese. This might be a good change for you to learn a bit of portuguese, if you are interested in! I am more than happy to help my guests in anything they might need.
