  • Descripción


    After growing up in Switzerland and traveling around the world, I felt like going back to my roots and decided to come to Portugal to find a place that I could feel at home and where I could start my life projects. That was when I found these amazing lands in Bouro Santa Maria close to the beautiful Geres National Park. The idea is to creat a place in which people can connect to nature and relax whenever they need or just feel like. I am very passionate about it and want to share this with as many people as I can.
    My name is Filipe, I am an easy going guy who likes to take long walks, get to know new people and help them in what they need. Because I love donkeys, the main idea for this place is to take care and breed Mirandeses which are in danger here in Portugal, and also organize donkey tours for kids. Apart from that, I want to build sustainable and natural spaces working with reusable materials, make tree houses and platforms, compost toilets, have veggie beds, fruit trees, medicinal herbs, based on permaculture and sacred geometry tecnics.
    Also in one of these lands there are many eucalyptos trees and I thought it would be a good idea to reforest this area with more native plants and trees.
    All of these ideas are still in the beggining and I don't have the whole experience but I am willing to learn and share knowledge with you! I need a lot of help to make this dream come true, and I trully believe that together with people who connect to this idea, we can do something really beautiful!
