    Two years ago we sold everything in the Netherlands and started a wonderful adventure in a camper with the hole family and animals.
    That trip brought us to Portugal. To be more specific... The Serra da Estrella.
    we fell in love with the mountains, the people and the pure life that the people live here. In this part of Portugal, the person really counts! even over money.

    so we sold our house on wheels and dived into the deep end. We bought 3.5 hectares of land to become as self-sufficient as possible together with the locals.

    the valley where we live is a beautiful place with a lot of families wanting to be chance for the future of our kids and the planet.

    Stop talking about chances! start doing it!

    and at that moment disaster struck.
    the whole mountain was on fire. 25,000 hectares of beautiful UNESCO heritage burn down. it banished a lot of our land and almost everything from our neighbors.
    But we are combative and want to replant the mountain with native and fruit trees! To keep our lands and the mountain save from fires again.

    We will rise as(s) the phoenixes.

  • Alojamiento


    We own 3.5 hectare of land. Sow a place to sleep is not a problem.
    However like we said, the road is a dirt road good enough for regular cars, vans and medium sized campers.
    For really long and wide campers it will be possible but its a challenge.

    So you can put your own small camper, tent, car, or van etc. on our land.

    We can and will provide bedding if you can’t arrange that you’re self! Also a tent to sleep in is available on our Quinta.

    - wassing machine is an option
    - electricity on solar (with restrictions)
    - hopefully on short notice a shower and toilets (now only a cold shower)
    - water is no problem
