    Hi Folks.

    Hosting travelers on a piece of land...

    I have to say this is one the best thing I've got into.

    You are welcome as House Sitters or helping out ( Volunteer) and sharing this wonder piece of land as a place to live close to the nature working to develop a way an "off-grid" life style.

    I am Daniel.

    These many years of traveling brought me near "Monsanto Penamacor "two years ago.
    I got instantly mesmerised by the beauty and wilderness.

    Creativity incentive mindfullness love for nature are the threads.

    Bring your ideas, you can give a hand at gardening, maintaining the land at construction (learning quite a few trades in the process)

    You’ll have a glimpse at how to survive off-grid without following the common thread but ending up in living in a « Perma"  or « Eco » way  very respectful of the environment, not grabbing  too much resource from the universe or you want to call it from « mother nature »

    We welcome House Sitters !
    - Here is a description of what we expect of you as Sitters:
    Take care of the land, bit of leaves brushing, cutting grass and feeding the cat.
    That will not take you more than two hours maximum each week days and just relax and feed the cat on week end.

    Algo más...

    I am open to Possible House Sitting if you are into !!
    I still have travel plans on the burner.

    If you are into giving a try to living in Portugal for a longer period.
    And we find an agreement then House Sitting is an option.

    On your free days you can go visit the Serra da Estrella (highest range in Portugal)

    Monsanto is a magical Old Hill Village with house made of huge boulders.

    In fact most of the small villages have kept their traditional style and are an enchanting maze walking around.

    In warm season:
    Several lakes around.
    Penha Garcia
    Idanha Nova
    Or many of the Praia Fluvial.
    Meimoa and Benquerencas have COLD water July and August included

    The proximity of mountains brings fresh air every night even during July and August
