  • Description


    We are a young family
    We came to portugal for a more simple, easy life. We enjoy working and growing our land and ourselves.
    Our dream is to create a platform for artists to create and connect with nature.
    To become a center for residencies, workshops and conventions in field of movement- art, circus and therapy.

    For now, we are in the stages of finishing our natural building home, from cob and straw bales. Moving into winter gardening, reforestation.

    Our land is located in the wild of alentejo, inside a young cork forest.
    The land was abandoned for many years and we are still discovering it.
    we are completely off-grid. With our own well with drinking water. Our power is solar, our eggs are free :)
