We are a young couple (and 3 cats) living off-grid in Central Portugal. We are trying to revitalize an old eco-camping site.
We moved to Portugal in the summer of 2019 and would love a helping hand with various project around the property.
The land is in a beautiful valley and has functioned as a 'glamping' since 2000 but has been empty for a couple of years. The basic infrastructure is in place but as it is surrounded by nature there is always maintenance to be done!
The aim is to have 2 camping spots ready for the coming 2020 season.
