  • Description


    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.
