    Hello, hello,

    My name is Mieke and I am the happy and proud owner of a very beautifull, small and cozy campsite in Central Portugal. Because of my bussy life I'm looking for volunteers to help me with the maintenance of my flower garden and vegetable garden.

    I have 2 sons, Matte is 24 years old, already works and lives on his own. He comes to visit every 2 weeks, it is always nice to have him around. My youngest is Seth and he is 18 years old, a real puber but very good company, a funny, crazy kid.

    Our family also consist a bunch of animals, almost all rescued and found. We have 3 dogs: Scooby, Lara and Poppy; 4 cats: Snowball, Cookie, Diabolo and Lucifer and 2 guinea pigs Moon and Punky. My animals are super friendly and social and they get very well along with each other.

    I run the campsite mostly together with friends, what helps a lot to create a very good atmosfere, we always have a lot of fun. This place is so much more then just my work, it is my life and I still love doing it very much.
    The campsite is unique in many ways: the buildings in the big granit blocks, the colourfull gardens with many flowers, the mosaics, the animals, the nature arround us, the mountains, the good food, ...
