  • Description


    I'm Tom, I bought a quinta in cental-Portugal with a lot of work to make it beautiful again. A big fire has come over and a lot of trees are gone. We have to rebuild a lot of things. I'm father of 3 kids, Anna (23), Axel (19) and Linde (10).
    The kids live in Belgium but come over a lot.
    On the quinta is need to replant trees, fruit, oaks, olives, grapes...and to rebuild some smal sheds.
