  • Description

    Description

    Hi there, i´m a farmer based in northern Portugal. I live with my wife and daughter, and also our two dogs Paco and Lola. The farm is quite big and we grow kiwis for a living. There is a small organic food garden and few animals. My goal is to make this place self sufficient and we are getting there step by step. If you are interested in exchanging cultural knowledge and experience we would love to meet you. We are also surrounded by nature and a beautiful landscape with interesting people and fun activities.

    What else ...

    We are very close to the main village (30min walk) and there is a brand new bycicle path that offers great views and relaxing walks in the surronding landscape. We are a wine country and love our gastronomy. We are well connected by bus, and very close to Guimarães (40km) and Porto (86km). There are a few rivers around here that are great in the warmer days.
