  • Description


    Families welcome!

    Ola, we are a small young family (Dan, Charlotte and 4 year old Dakota) living on our newly established small holding in Central Portugal. Our farm is located in a beautiful village on the river Alva, just 1 hour drive from Serra da Estrela national park and just a 15 minute walk to the nearest fresh water swimming spot which is how we like to spend our hot afternoons.

    We are a fun loving, sociable family that welcome strangers from all walks of life and would love the chance to meet you and see where your strengths and passions lie.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We can offer a place of relaxation and tranquility, to share experiences with an open minded family. Indulge in yoga and meditation or simply kick back in our outside cinema. We are open to late nights around the fire place. We can happily accommodate small families as our toddler is very sociable and loves meeting new children!

  • Aide



    We are looking for a group of people to give us a hand with seasonal duties such as carpentry, forestry, ground maintenance, permaculture implementation and cooking as well as helping out with build projects. Over the autumn we are clearing the last remaining evidence of the 2017 fires and starting to implement our food forest design by planting more trees and edible perennials, using well researched, and some tried and tested methods of design. Focusing on polycultures, building soil and nutrients and reserving water to maximise efficiency and preserving this otherwise climatically threatened part of Europe. We hope to use this project as an example to inspire the community to step away from the monoculture forests that fuelled the catastrophic events of 2017.

    We are looking for roughly 4-5 hours a day/5 days a week but nothing is set in stone and it is all dependant on what projects we are working on at a time. We can negotiate if you have any particular skills and depending on what you enjoy or feel confident with we can delegate jobs accordingly.

  • Hébergement


    Your digs will consist of a large bell tent nestled in the shade of a gathering of oak trees with views of the Alva valley and sunset. We can provide bedding and towels and a washing machine is available for a small fee. We have two large tents so couples and small groups are welcome. Food will be provided and you will be welcomed to join us at the table but we do ask that you muck in and contribute to the cooking/washing up. We try to use as much of the organic produce from our farm as possible.

    We have a minimum stay requirement of 1 week which will also act as a trial period, providing you contribute and are not a complete nuisance you will be more than welcome to stay on longer ;)

Gorgeous waterfalls, gorges, wild swimming spots and huge mountains surround us. An amazing expat community has gathered in this quirky part of central portugal, everybody so unique with a common interest of building a more sustainable future and way of life. There are local markets where anyone can buy or sell hand made/grown items which is usually a chance for everyone to get together.
