We are a young German family of five (born in 1986, 1990, 2016, 2017 and 2019) living in the quiet nature in the middle of the Alentejo region in Portugal.
We chose to live a quiet life far from the big cities and try to focus on what really matters for us in life, while finding the right balance with our professional life (physiotherapist, lawyer). We value and try to respect as much as possible Mother Nature. For us this includes a zero waste philosophy and tendency to minimalism and aware consumism. Also, we are christians and like to assume a thankful attitude towards God.
We live at a very beautiful place where is always enough work, specially with gardening and landscaping. Also, when it suits, we are happy to have help with the children and in the house.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
At our place you can learn about German and about Portuguese culture. Also, we are happy to exchange thoughts regarding most divers matters, namely that help rethinking society and inspire to make courageous decisions to better meet with people’s values. We also believe that we found a healthy way of dealing with our children’s education and are happy to exchange thoughts about this.
It would be ideal to have help with child care, gardening and eventually cooking.
