  • Descripción


    Hello! I'm Derek and I live with my beloved pet, Beagle Ben, on a 1 hectare former farm in the magnificent mountain area of Monchique. I moved from Wales to Portugal in 2018 and it has been the most incredible experience of my life. The farmhouse has now been fully modernised and the next project is landscaping using eco materials and, working with the land, to create a natural paradise. I look forward to welcoming you, seeking your ideas and your support in realising my life project. To experience living in both a National Park and protected ecological zone is something to enjoy and truly appreciate.
