Hello lovely people! We are Mick (39) and Danny (33), both from northern Italy and we live in Portugal since summer 2019. with dog cheffi, cat mimi, gees, ducks, chickens..... And soon more of all this amazing critters 🐎🐑🐹🐿️🐔🐓🦃🐣🐤🐥🦕
After years of traveling and great adventures, the desire to settle somewhere grew ever greater. So we started our search and found our paradise here in central portugal which we are willing to share with nice people!!
Our place is located near Sao Pedro do Sul, in the middle of nature, native forest and borders with a beautiful river. It is about 1.5 hectares and we have our own drinking water from a spring. We are living in our motorhome and a house/tend which we use as comon space, hang out, cooking ecc.
When we first arrived we where mostly busy with cleaning the land, as it has been abandoned for over 20 years. Among many other things we have installed an irrigation system, planted lots of fruit trees and created a big vegetable garden that we would like to continue to cultivate with you.
Our goal is to live as self-sufficient as possible, in harmony with nature and living beings, turn the land into a beautiful, self-sustainable place using permaculture principles.
Meet many interesting people from all over the world, share our place, knowledge and friendship!
Looking forward to meet and welcome all of you happy faces!
occasionally there is only one of us on the land as sometimes we go back to Italy for work.

We are expecting from you to help us aprox 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Two days a week you are free to do whatever u want. We visit friends and neighbors regularly, or they come to us. Most of the time they also have helpers so there are always nice people around. In our freetime we often go to nice places or simply enjoy life here on the land.
As it gets hot here in the summer, we prefer to work in the mornings and/or evenings.
We will respond to your needs and personal interests and will surely find tasks for everyone , as long as you don't fear to get dirty hands. However, it should not be forgotten that a farmer's life can also be associated with physical hard tasks.
Most important to us that it is a nice, respectful and relaxed get-together.
