  • Description


    This is a piece of paradise, a park within the Natural park of the Costa Vicentina. We have the honor to be the guardians of this land since four years and we are slowly learning from it what it needs to thrive. We are a couple, Diogo is portuguese and Chiara is Italian and we normally live with a small group of friends/volunteers in a sort of temporary community. We are very laid back, hard working and enjoy a simple life in nature and good vegetarian food!
