Olive harvest: sometime in November when the time is ripe
We feel very blessed to be sharing this place which is full of ancient history, an old watermill, bakery-oven, year-round swimming and splashing in the river, big boulders and small caves...
Being here most probably brings about a mysterious yet delightful feeling of being connected with everything around you and mostly to your inner self.
We are Annie, Grim, baby Juniper, Rupert the dog and twinsister cats and what we want is an harmonious life. This is a beautiful journey towards completing more and more circles and restoring our inner and outer eco-systems in a joyful and caring way.
Happy to share this joy!
DIY and building projects
Everything is still in the start-up phase and that makes this place a total playground to add your personal touch to it.
Building is the main focus for now, and we’ve got plenty of experience and knowledge to share about it.
We love a tentative and sensible approach to permaculture style gardening and are shaping and creating a supersweet fruitcandy forest!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We will stop building the roof for a few weeks for the olive harvest in November!
Until the roof is finished; possibly in December we will continue to renovate the ancient house; a traditional Portuguese granite stone building.
The mission is to put the roof on.
It will be a hands-on project in building where you can show off your carpentry skills. From time to time the garden or one of the 77 fruit trees will demand our loving care or throw us their fruits of abundance... nyum!
Every day we will cook a meal together, with veggies from local markets and the garden!
We’ve arrived about two years ago so most of our time goes to listening to the place, learning a lot from it and from nature and installing the basics.
So a hot shower we have, even a private beach and outdoor community kitchen with a springy earthen floor and a small solar panel to charge your phone or some small electronics.
If you say yes I like this vibe and I’ve got some hands and muscles to flex, some experience with building and the power tools involved, feel free and welcome to come and join this experience with us!
We’ve got a few glamping tents with matrass and blankets and sheets if needed
As far as you can see, there are hills around us.
With our rubber boat, mandala or unicorn you can paddle up the river and see some really beautiful rock formations.
Just 1,5 km downstream there is a hotspring which is possibly accessible if the river is low enough.
There is a bus stop about 4 km away but we are happy to pick you up when you come to the event.
