*️️️️️Wanted: artists / sculptors!
We are looking for a person or couple to join us for 3 weeks in April / May and sept / Oct to create sculptures, murals, mosaic and general design features around the land. Please provide examples of your previous work.
Join us by the lake for a sundowner after a satisfying day of working on the land! Or enjoy a post work swim or surf at one of the many local, pristine, white sand beaches. There is also wild swimming available a 10 minute stroll along the canal.
Stay as our guest, learn about off grid living and enjoy pristine, wild beaches superb for surfers and sunbathers alike!
We are a family of three, with a five year old daughter, currently unschooled, living in an off grid farm in the stunning Alentejo region of Portugal.
There is a lake, creek and canal on our land, a pine forest, a cork oak forest and an, as yet, unexplored 'jungle'!

Close by (4km down a dirt track) we have the pristine, wild and untourested beaches of Praia Do Carvalhal and Paia Da Amália . A further 10 minute drive in either direction and you have the beautiful surf and sun spots of Odeceixe and Zambujeira Do Mar.
