  • Description


    Because of the drought, the river is not flowing and water supply is limited!!!

    We are a German family with 4 kids. We grow fruit trees and vegetables, and have, donkeys and chicken in our 7 ha valley. We have a river flowing from November till May, two small lakes at home and 5 wells. At the moment we are building a outdoor shower and a roof. Our 3 dogs are friendly to humans but not (!) To other dogs. They are livestock guardian dogs and like to protect us from intruders. With humans, I can explain it to them but with other dogs they don't get it. We started the Projekt about 7 years ago and are again in construction. A fire in 2021 took all away and now we are building everything new. We try to stick to natural/ free materials. We don't smoke nor drink. Drugs are not welcome. Come and find out! Familys welcome!

    We are approximately 4 km from the beach. The next one is called boca do Rio and it takes about 40 minutes to reach it by bike. About 15 minutes by foot it is to the swimming lake. Otherwise possibilities are hiking and enjoying nature.

    About 5 km it is to the next Shopping possibility - intermarché. Normally we go to the market in Lagos (20km) once a week to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, also to Aldi/ Lidl. The nearest market is in vila do bispo (15km), they have a good biological portfolio, we also go there once a week.
