  • Description


    We are a young German family of four 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.
    Our daughters are 2 and 3 years old and love to play with other children. Also, we are expecting our 3rd child very soon.
    We like to meet new people and share with them the beautiful space we live at.
