    Descripción

    We’re Alicia (34 years old from Italy) and Tim (37 years old from Belgium).
    We live in Midoes, a village in the central portugal Beiras-region.
    Our quinta is situated in a secluded valley, close to the river.
    Our dream is to live from all the beautiful things the land has to offer and share it with animals, adults and children who can learn from each other surrounded by nature.

    we grow a lot of vegetables, we invited the children of the kinder garden to come and enjoy our quinta and we started to collaborate with social project.. we are a host family for youngest.

    We started 2 years ago and October 15th, 2017 a huge fire swept through the valley and we had a big loss.. olives tree, plants, all the conserve and the harvesting, 2 caravans (one was our home), all our tools, books the list goes on.

    Luckily all the pet family formed by 3 dogs (Bashir, Adri and Menina), 3 cats (Mum Mila, brother Robin and sister Cleo), one rooster (Luzalto) and 6 chickens (Cesarina, Guendalina, Adelina, Isabella, Esperanza and Piopio) is saved.

    Now.. we have to work hard to reviving the quinta again.. we already started to cut death trees, seeding some grass and in spring we would like to have more animals that can help us with the maintaining and the cleaning of the land.

    At the same time we have to work hard to build stable, a house and a space to be able to host youngest and helpers.

    Another Important job is to plant new trees and restore the garden and greenhouse.

    So.. what we really need is some workforce.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We both arrived in Portugal working as volunteers and are happy to be able to offer the same experience to other people now.

    What is at the center of our lives is gardening, food, organizing children's activities, photography, knitting, yoga, enjoying the beauty and diversity of nature around us, our animals, , our dreams of the future.
    In any regard, we are in general living a simple life while we try to respect everything and everyone around us.

    The cultural exchange and the learning opportunities will, according to us, mainly take place in the garden, the kitchen and talking around the table :)

    We live close to a magical caminho along the river and 10 minutes walking from the first village.

    The beira- region with its terraced valleys has big diversity in landscapes. We are in the granite region, with big stones scattered across fertile valleys, often abandoned and wild, too often planted with eucalyptus, but always with a feel of abundance. Rivers that once cut these valleys out of the landscape flow interrupted by manmade barrages, where the mills used to be grinding. To make a long story short: this region is great for simple pleasures like sunsets and sunrises, long or short walks, slowing down the pace of life, ...
