    Description

    Me Andrea (33years old), my boyfriend Gopi (44years) and our three dogs Tresy (she is handicapped but a great sunshine!), Laura and Jimmy. We come from Austria, where we already started a Project building with everything that others throw away, a big garden with thousands of plants and homes for insects and animals. Now we want to go on here in Portugal.
    We have the vision to create an oasis of wellbeing. A place that is open to life to reconnect plants, animals and people in harmony! Because sustainability is very important to us, and in our home country Austria, an awful lot of things end up in the garbage, some of them brand new, so we had several container full of second-hand materials sent here. We love every kind of music, art, meditation, yoga

    To make the dream of our "wellness oasis" come true, we invite you to participate our project in Portugal / Penamacor!

    The land is approximately 2.5 hectares, with 3 wells, 3 stone houses (must be renovated), grapes and many different trees such as olives, apple, pear, fig, almond, khaki, and much much more

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Enjoying simple life on a peaceful, beautiful piece of land, cooking, healthy eating, slow down life, crafting, living out art, learning from each other and we love to have in-depth discussions about awareness and life itself.

    Other topics that are very important to us: throwaway society, healing through nature and common strength, let nature be nature again, garbage health problems, promote free clean energy, radiation sources and much more

    The oasis of encounter would offer space for people who are changing, develop together and exchange ideas. Together we can make a difference, common development of consciousness and self-sustaining life
