We are a couple who have settled in the estrella mountains in Portugal. For many years we have been traveling living working chilling throughout Europe and Asia. Now we are creating our own guest house minus the house.For acomodation we will use canvas tipis and yurts.There is no cement here we are with nature.We have 2 hectares of ecological reserve land in an uninhabited valley that time forgot.we are creating a place where people can come and chill out off grid and sustainable within nature.
In the future there will be solar electricity,wood fired bath and shower,sand bag steam room,a natural pool and organic food from the land.
Reusing recycling and using local natural materials where ever possible is an aim to lower our footprint.
