  • Description


    We are a French family Emma & Sam and their 4 kids. we are following or dreams here, in south west Algarve (portugal). Trying to find and develop new life style to get away from the normal track. We rent some small and simple houses for tourist. We also started an organic veggie garden and almost finish the renovation of our old and typical portugues farm. We live 5 min away from Aljezur, and about 10-15 min from the main beaches.
    We like to share, there's always some friends at home who stop for a coffee , lunch or dinner. Off course, with 4 kids ( 10, 14, 17 and 19) my wife have a good schedule.
    We are an artist family and we like people. You can make a lot of thing only with the wood you can find on the beach. All our furniture are handmade or we found it to the rubbish bin, clean it and renovate it.
    We like to walk on the countryside or on the beach and discover new places. The area is so" rich" here. We living here since 5 years now and we still discover new places and it will be a pleasure to share all of this with one of you.

    We are now working on the land again and focussing on the veggie garden. Still have some carpentry work to be done: pergola, wooden shade, fences,are to be built. Dry stone walls and small outside masonry is to be done . also collecting rocks in the mountain...
    The normal work is in the garden. It needs weeding. Plantation will be done in the green patch. Mulching is also an important mission, creating the mulch and spreading it will be part of the work in the veggie garden. Fruit trees need to be trimmed and treated, if you have any knowledge and skills in this field, you will be very welcome.
