  • Description


    Hello lovely people! We are Mick (40) and Danny (34) , both from northern Italy and we live in Portugal since summer 2019. Here we live with dog cheffi, cat mimi, gees, ducks, chickens... And soon more of all sorts of 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 2 hectares and we have our own drinking water from a spring. We are both living in our motorhomes and a house/tent which we use as common 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.
    And to meet many interesting people from all over the world, share our place, knowledge and friendship!
    Looking forward to meet and welcome all of you!

    Occasionally there is only one of us on the land as sometimes we go back to Italy for work.

    Tasks will always variate with seasons and depending on the projects...

    Some of them might be:

    GARDENING: weeding, seeding, planting, harvesting, watering, mulching, preparing new beds, composting

    CONSTRUCTION HELP: outdoor kitchen/lounge, renovating the shed, irrigation system

    HELP ON THE LAND: plant care, clearing the land/ forest/ fire prevention, cut firewood, feed animals, clean out chicken shed ecc..

    FOOD CONSERVATION: vegetables need to be conserved or dried, make jam, dry herbs, we also experiment with the fermentation process of vegetables ecc.

    DAILY TASKS : cooking, cleaning dishes, animalcare ecc.

    Also all kinds of artists, musicians ecc. are more then welcome to leave their footprints, paintings and memories around the land!! Be creative, inventive, colorful, inspiring whenever you want!!

    We both love to cook good healthy food but we also like to be cooked and try new dishes. Our meals are mainly vegetarian, we eat meat on rare occasions.

    We would like you to help us aprox. 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Two days a week you are free to spend your time however you wish... We visit friends and neighbors regularly or they come to our place. Most of the time they also have helpers, so there are always nice people around. In our freetime we often go to nice places and we are happy to show you around. Also we like 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´s a nice, respectful and relaxed get-together.

  • Hébergement


    The accommodation will be in tents, there is a double bed in the big tent or you can also park your van on a nice spot. You can have a hot shower every day in our solar shower (of course only when the sun is out :-) or in our motorhome if needed. Also you can use the internet, washing machine and charge your electric devices.

    In the winter it would be better if you come with your own van/camping car, because it can get cold and wet. We have plenty of space here, so you can choose your perfect spot. Also you can be connected to electricity if needed.

    Your pet is also welcome, as long as shes/hes good with dog, cat, birds and free of fleas! 🐶🙀🐦🐘🐪

    We would like to have a minimum/maximum stay for approx. 7-14 days to get to know each other well. But it can also be a long term stay if it suits for all of us. If u have only a few days to stay, explain why, maybe its still possible with a good reason (we like to help out)!

    We provide 3 meals ,7 days a week.

    What to bring: head torch, if you prefer your own sleeping bag, otherwise we provide them, enthusiasm, a smile and positve vibes!
