    We are totally flexible about the help you provide and how much. A couple hours a day helping in the garden and trimming fruit and olive trees, helping in cob or wood construction projects. This summer and fall we will be restoring a stone ruin with cob walls and floor, building a rocket mass heater and installing a terracotta roof.

  • Hébergement


    Park your camper van, pitch your tent or we can build a small guest cabin together. We can provide a canvas bell tent, bed and blankets if you don’t have your own. Feel free to ask if there is some accommodation available in the house if you have no tent or prefer to sleep indoors. (Depends on state of renovations) We offer at least one warm/communal meal a day and the kitchen is always open if you would like to prepare yourself something to eat. We always have fresh baked bread, eggs from the neighbors’ farm and fresh vegetables on hand. We have good internet but prefer communal times at the breakfast or dinner table be smartphone free. There is a thriving community of off grid expats here from around the globe, so there should be opportunities to meet others in the community. There are three villages nearby if you’d like to visit a cafe or explore a bit. Castelo Branco is less than 15minutes by car.
