    UPDATE We´re searching especially for native portuguese speakers, who are in the mood to spend time by time a bit time with the kids, with playing/drawing/making music etc to give them a bit an ear to the portuguese language

    Here you find a free family with 4 small kids – aged 1, 4, 6 and 8 years - a wonderful dog and two cats. Four years ago we travelled with our old camper through Europe and came across our land by coincidence. In January 2019 we started our project here und built our yurt in which we`re living now, on 50.000sqm – between olives and huge old corkoaks in the Serra de Sao Mamede.
    Our aim is to live environmentally sustainable, self-sufficient and reduce our footprint as much as possible. We slowly creating a permaculture foodforest and convert our land into a healthy and peaceful ecosystem.
    But every time we don´t want to be only focused on our idea´s – we´re trying to be always open and mindful for new projects , people – changing rhythms or flows ;)

    For now we especially need help to build a jurt and some other wood constructions, mulching the garden and the fields, preparing beds for next spring and building the outdoordkitchen out of clay.

    But in general the projects and ideas will never get stopped 

    We´re an unschooling family so our kids are always with us and learn everything whenever and wherever they want to. We´re trying to communicate and live together in a respectful and mindful way, attach the needs of everyone. That means at some days we´re working more and some days it´s better not to try to do anything – just take the swimming clothes and take a break at the lake ;)
    It means also that we´re not only focused on people who are good handcrafters , cooks and gardeners - we´ll be also very happy if you like it to spend time with kids, do some creative projects or music with them or whatever kind of idea you´ll have  And of course we´re inviting not only singles, friends, couples – you´re welcome as a family too!
    Naturally you´re very welcome as a family member, take part in our daily life and routine, meeting other alternative people (actually quite a lot here ;)) and families .

    Because of the sometimes busy and chaotic big family life its needed that you´re able to think, act and work indepentendly and don´t mind to be on your own sometimes.

    We´re cooking one big warm vegan lunch dish every day for all of us, for your breakfast and dinner you´re responsible on your own.

    Our property is located near a very small rural portuguese village, which you can easily reach by bike within 5min. There are two small supermarkets, a bakery and a few cafes with free wifi where you´ll find all the basic things you need. To reach the nearby big lake, which is really great to swim and take a break, you´ll need about 20mins by bike.

On sunny days there is enough power to charge your stuff or your batteries. Also there are some very good springs with trinking water nearby.

    We are already located in the natural park of the Serra da Sao Mamede so you can just relax in the hammock, or discover the beautiful landscape around. there are a lot of hiking trails, or we can lend you a bike. The Lake where you can get a refreshing is about 4km away and a lot of ancient sights are spread around.

    15km away are the beautiful villages "Castelo de Vide" and "Marvao" which are definitely worth a visit, too.
