    Description

    Me and my partner move to portugal 18months ago from England for the good life we have done a lot of work on the land planted 40 fruit nut trees. Planted a small vine yard whit red grapes. Planted vegetables and fruit. Cleared the land to the river for river swimming. Situated outside a small town but secluded on edge of a forest with beautiful walks and stunning scenery. Friendly local people who we integrate with. Just a wonderful life relaxing hard work but Portuguese time.

    How rural Portugal really is peace quite and tranquillity and home grown fresh vegetables. We make jams pickles and home cooking.
    Russ is an engineer and has a old Ford transit he is restoring and lots of other projects very skilled in lots of aspects. You would learn slot from him electrics, engines diy, gardening what we don't know we research and find a way of doing things. From irritating the land to growing sweet potatoes
