  • Description


    My desire to be closer to the nature convinced me to buy a little piece of wild nature near Figueira da Foz and its beautiful sea. Am only 1km off grid, but my corner of nature does not attract tourists (only weekend hikers/bikers). So far, it has a canvas tent (I also have an additional summer tent for friends/visitors), solar energy and the basics to cook.

    Am looking for like minded people, willing to escape for a few days and feel how it is to disconnect and start over a different way.

    Come with a smile, your doubts, your desire to share (or not), your sleeping bag. We can go to the sea and walk around together. Am still new here, so I have not discovered much yet. We can explore together.

    Latest update: if you know a bit about gardening, then I would love to use your skills. And if you don't know much, then I wouldn't mind your company for a few days.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I feel closer to humble people. There is always something to learn if one is open to. A conversation (I speak French and English, and Creole from the French West Indies), your Art, your stories, my stories, anything you are willing to share (but only if you are willing to).

  • Aide


    If you are good in a garden, then you are already a superstar here. Am not trying to build anything permanent, therefore do not really require construction help. Only the routine: going for water, cleaning the land, gardening, feeding animals (if I decide to welcome a few here).

    Update: just found a path to a natural "pool". Am thinking it would be great to clean it and make it a nice fresh spot to enjoy during the summer.

    The land is 6-7 kms away from the sea. only 1-2 kms to the train station. 1 km to the river. There is a cycling path going all the way to the city, so it is very safe.
