    and horse time

    Our Community is set in the hillside, overlooking the fertile green valley with its veggie gardens, a small lake and the hills with its cork-oak forest.
    Vale Corticas is 25 min. from the ocean, 10 min from "Pego das Pias" (sweet water lake), 5 minutes from the famous hiking track "Rota Vicentina" and 5 minutes away from the town Odemira, which has all amenities.

    It is a wonderful area for exploring, enjoying the tranquillity of the valley or simply disconnecting. We will cook and take care of the shared spaces together and we enjoy sharing our gifts and skills with each other.
