    Hello 😁, we are Ugo (Italian) and MaryAnn (1/2 american and 1/2 italian brought up in Madrid) who moved to Portugal after 10 years living in Hong Kong.

    We are the guardians of 74 acres of magical land in Serpa, Alentejo, where we are following our dream of creating an eco-chic land and people regeneration retreat center, a natural refuge where nature, animals and people can work together in harmony.

    We moved into the property in January 2019 and with already the help of many volunteers, we have 5 beautiful veggie gardens that have been giving us wonderful food, horse stables, chicken coop, fencing and so many other wonderful work done.

    We have 2 horses, 3 donkeys, 20 chickens, 2 dogs, 3 cats, so if you are animal lover, you will be happy here :-)

    We are now looking for 1 volunteer to help us with our personal veggie garden and our animals.
    We ask for a period of minimum 3 weeks.
    Thanks a lot
    Ugo and MaryAnn

    Ugo is Italian and MaryAnn is half Italian, half American, but grown up in Spain. We have lived for the last 10 years in Hong Kong, so we have quite an international background.

    MaryAnn is a Mindfulness (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Compassionate Living (MBCL), breathwork facilitator, executive coach and passionate about trying out new vegetarian recipes.

    Ugo has attended a PDC (permaculture design course) and a natural building course so he can build the different structures needed for the farm part of the retreat center. He is very excited to share his knowledge and experience.

    We are happy people and we like happy, interested in our project and proactive people who care and are happy to respect the house agreements :-).
    We are very keen to arrive to almost a 0 trash impact with our project.

    We love animals, and somehow they love us and the many volunteers back.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    We offer a comfortable room with 2 single beds and 1 shared bathroom with hosts.

    We use the common kitchen to cook main meals. We provide bedding, but please bring your own towel.

    Food wise we provide 3 vegetarian meals a day (we cannot cater to vegan diets as our chickens want us to eat their eggs, our bees love giving us honey, and our organic sheep farmers love that we love their cheese, so we use all of these ingredients in our cooking :-)
    Please provide for any specialty foods you want and your snacks.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    During your free time you can enjoy long walks around the property or to the close by little city, Serpa (10 km away by taxi or hitch a ride with us when we go into town), where there are restaurants, bars and all the commodities that a small town can provide. Nearby there is also a river (2 km away) and a water fall and natural park (5 km).

    If you are interested in traveling while you are here, we are not the place for you as it is difficult to get around by public transport.

    Regarding transportation, we will pick you up in the bus station in Serpa (direct buses from Lisbon). You can also go via Beja (bus or train from Lisbon) and from there catch a bus to SERPA, which is 10km far from the property.
