  • Description


    We are a Portuguese couple with 42 and 36 years old.
    She is a teacher and he is an electrical engineer.

    We have chosen to change our professional life, and we are now dedicated to a life in a rural environment with a new project of life.
    We begin in April 2017 and now we can say that we live in Paradise!!! lol

    We are located in a small farm in Foros do Mocho, very near the Montargil lake.
    We can go to the lake walking in 5 minutes. In the lake you can try various water sports.

    It is an area of the High Alentejo, which is surrounded by cork oaks and holm-oaks, even in the Alentejo style, the lake is a huge attraction in this area.
    In our farm everything is rustic and rural.
    We have pigs, horses, ducks, dogs, peacocks ... A place like in the movies!
    Near the farm only have a small coffe with the essential goods, and where it is made the acquaintance with the few local habitants.

    This project of life starting in April 2017 and new and young ideas will always be appreciated.
    We count on the creativity of our volunteers to improve our project of life.
    Volunteers will have all the flexibility of working hours, so they can have time for all the activities they want to do.

    We are a simple and adventurous couple who like to enjoy nature and have time to relax.

    Volunteers can also dedicate themselves to some small culture. They'll have space on the farmland for that.
