  • Description

    Description

    We are a Portuguese couple, with a little girl born in July 2016, and a baby boy born in the 1st of January 2020, who lives in a small village, very isolated, laid abandoned for 20 years. The river Mega runs through the valley. We moved to the countryside because we wanted to be the change we wanted to see in the world.

    We are working on setting up a natural garden, restoring the stone house, collecting and drying herbs for teas, making natural soaps, graphic design and illustration.

    We are also implicated in saving seeds in a seeds association where we do volunteering work. We care for what we eat.
    We are firm advocate of natural health, home birth and home schooling.

    We have good neighborhood where we swap help, seeds, plants, etc.

    We have around 1,5 ha of land with a lot to discover under the brambles.

    We are looking for longer stays of up to one or two months, 15 days minimum.
    Household tasks such as washing up and keeping clean the kitchen and bathroom are shared.
    There will be plenty of time for swimming in the nearby river or long walks in the mountains.

    Bring working gloves, working clothes and working boots, a sense of humor and, most importantly, enthusiasm!
    Leave your tobaccos and alcohol at home.
    To keep this place as natural as it can be, don't bring harmful cosmetics.

    We look forward to meeting you:)
    Luisa, Carlos and Miranda

  • Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    After a Permaculture Design Course and 1,5 year of volunteering (a month in Japan and the rest in Portugal, by bicycle), we embraced this adventure inspired by all the projects we met. The last volunteering experience lasted 5 months where Carlos did the blogue and graphic design for our host. We are good friends now and we exchange services frequently. We would love to share this experience with everyone who wants to shift life standards. We hope to inspire everyone who wants to live more close to nature and be respectful towards others.
    We would like to host families (preferably and not exclusively) who are searching for a place to settle and would like to live in community (our village has 3 houses, one is ours, the other 2 are for sale), and would like to do homeschooling.
