    We are Lucia & Fernando, with ours cats, Migalhas and Pussycat, who exchange the city for a off-grid farm near Moreira de Rei, Guarda.

    We love animals and they will be welcome to explorer the outdoor space.

    We love the simple life and Nature, we are transforming this farm into our permaculture refuge off-grid.


    The farm is situated and 2km from the nearest village and 15min from the city.
    Is possible buy all weeks, in the village, fresh bread, groceries, fish and meat from street vendors.

    We have space and conditions for caravans and tents.
    Good internet signal, but we don't have Wi-Fi and TV.

    Every Friday there is a weekly streetmarket in Trancoso where you can purchase all kinds of items from food to clothing and hardware. Public transport in the village to and from the city on that day.
