    Description

    Our goats are kidding right now, so help needed with the goats, our garden and our human children.

    Nestled in a shallow valley over one thousand meters up on the top of the Serra De Estrella mountains is our isolated farm. We have two dogs, two cats, two chickens and 30 goats.

    Well behaved dogs welcome, as long they get along with ours, and wont chase our 19 year old cat, or birds.

    Our farm is 1km down a dirt rd, that is a bit bumpy, not suitable for low down vehicles. We have a ford galaxy we drive up and down, so it isnt too bad. Maybe if its very wet, its more difficult. We will be leaving our 4x4 here, so available for the right person, so no need to drive your van up and down, while we are gone.

    We have a basic caravan and a space for vans.

    A bit about us: We are a small family of three, me Emily 38, Sam 38, Connie has 4 years and Bill is almost 2. Seven years ago, after volenteering and farmsitting for three years, we brought one of the abandoned "casais de Folgosinho". We feel a strong responsibility to bring this place back to life and to show it the respect it deserves.

    We had some amazing volunteers the last years and achieved a lot, we're very thankful for all the help.

    Hébergement

    We have a caravan and a space for vans.

    Our facilities are also very basic, temporary compost toilet (a bucket), no mains electric or water, (we have a solar system and water from springs and the stream).

    Please bring waterproof foot-ware, and as we are pretty high up, it gets cold at night. It can also be very hot in the day, but be prepared this is on top of a mountain so it's not the super hot climate that most people think that Portugal has. We can have a fair amount of snow in the winter.

    We can cater for vegetarians as we rarely eat meat. We do eat milk, cheese, eggs and (goat meat occasionally) as we keep goats.

    Autres infos...

    You can enjoy being alone with the mountains up here, beautiful views, walks and nature. it is very quiet. It takes a 40min drive to get to any towns. The nearest villages are 10km away, and are very old beautiful villages.

    We can collect you from a nearest town, but nowhere is near to us here, so please communicate well about your arrival.
