  • Description


    About us, so much and so little to say.
    We are a couple with 3 wonderful children (3, 14, 20 years) who decided to change their lives. Bankers by profession for many years, we decided to move from the North of the Country (Porto) to the South, more specifically to the Costa Vicentina Natural Park where we live.

    It wasn't a sudden thing, we didn't wake up one day with change in mind. In the previous year, the desire to change was already like a ''pet'' that walked in the ear, as if showing the way!!

    The constant day to day of hustle, traffic and bad mood of those who cross on the sidewalk running against life!!! The consumerism society, the need and obligation of having to demonstrate to others!!! The uncertainty of tomorrow!!!
    It led us to the need to Change and simply LIVE OFF-GRID...

    ''Off The Grid is not a state of mind. It's not about someone being out of touch, or about a place that's hard to get to, or spending a weekend offline. Living Off The Grid means having to radically reinvent the way of life as we know it. That means choosing to live in a way that is dramatically innovative: a way that draws on skills from the past, inspired by concerns for our future.''

    This change brought us challenges, tears, hugs, spontaneous smiles, joy, but above all a lot of love that increases day by day with each person who leaves a trace in Herdade da Maceira !!!!
