  • Descripción


    We are Wim and Punam and we are living our dream, creating a magical place together with other people.
    A better world, which we know in our hearts is possible.
    We bought 26 hectares of land in the southwest of Portugal between Aljezur and Odexice, with a lot of pristine nature and with the ocean nearby.
    We started this living community in April 2023 because we feel we want to live in a different way, off-grid, where we work playfully and co-sufficient.

    In this little start-up village we like to celebrate this dance of life and we see personal growth as wealth.
    To live in full bloom, share qualities and shape dreams.

    Do you long to co-create this magical place? Off-grid and co-sufficient?
    Then feel welcome.

    in this start-up phase, we are especially in need of adventurous pioneers who enjoy being at the grassroots with us.
    Long-term volunteering possible.
