    One cob house is now finished, and i live in it. The next natural building project will be using light clay and help with that would be very welcome.

    There are many farm jobs to do like making gates, fixing fences, putting poles in etc are always there and will be a part of your day as well. Plus sharing in the care of the animals -- horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys, and ducks. We are part of the Local Food Initiative where we exchange our duck and hen eggs for other produce.

    Planting trees and re designing the vegetable garden will be a part of the land based regeneration project. As part of my attempts to take care of this little part of the Alentejo i will be introducing pigs in the near future. It will first be necessary to improve the fencing!!!

    We are a chilled out, quiet place where you can live independently and enjoy your own space.
    We have two person caravan with its own outside kitchen/veranda it is comfortable and dry. we welcome people with their own van.
    ~~~~~~


    We moved to the Alentejo in 2004 and we lived in the caravan for two years until we moved into the small mud/straw/clay eco house.

    It is essential that you like animals and i am happy to share knowledge about the horses if you are interested. I encourage contact time with the horses.

    We offer accommodation and food which you can prepare in your own outside kitchen. we are 2 hours from Faro about 40 minutes car ride from the beaches at Vila Nova do Milfontes. we are very rural so if you have transport that would be good for you but this place is ideal for people who like the quiet life and happy with their own company. Our village is only 15 minutes walk and it has a bar, shop and padaria.

    We are off grid but we have wifi

    There is always some gardening to do, grooming the horses., taking care of all the animals

    NO DOGS because of the livestock.

    This is a very rural area, the Alentejo, it would therefore suit a person/people who are happy in a quiet rural environment.

    We are about 30 minutes from the Atlantic coast with some of the most fabulous beaches you will ever see. Our village has a bakery, small shop and a cafe so we have all of life's necessities close by!

    Our farm is only 10 acres but there is always a lot to do and we could certainly do with a general helping hand.

    Particularly practical things like repairing/making fences; making gates; putting in irrigation

    Plus some building help like woodworking and building walls of cob (mud and straw).
