In the mountains of Central Portugal, surrounded by pine forests, is a small offgrid farm. The farm has been built with discarded resources from other projects. All by hand, no powertools. Just a hammer, some muscle and hard work. Terms of importance: Recycling, vegetarian/vegan, peaceful coexistence, shared social time, but also plenty of privacy and solitude. Cats, chickens and tortoise are treated like the family members they are. A self sustainable life and taking care of animals and nature is the goal!
The work in and around the house varies from cooking, watering fruit trees and vegetables, taking care of chickens or cats and occassionally drive into town for supplies and whatnot. There is also harder labour like digging trenches, buidling structures, repairs, forestry, etcetera.
To be up front: I like to benefit from the strengths of each individual. If you're good at taking photos, help me with that. If you're an excellent cook, help me with that.
I do not ask much. Do not have many rules. Behave decent, respect boundaries. You know the drill, right? Work is a necessity, but life is also to be enjoyed.
I offer a beautiful place to experience nature. Plenty of water on the land, even in the hottest summer. Regular visits from a skilled Tarot reader, karate and self defence trainer, reiki masters, dreadlock-artists, handpoke tattoo artists and all kinds of other creative folk. If all this sounds good to you, you must have a beautiful soul.
Send me a message. We’ll talk.
Travelers with dogs should talk to me about it first. With 12 cats, it could be an issue. But I'm willing to talk about it.

I work with women who are afraid and intimidated easily, but also strong and independent women who want to grow even stronger. By teaching martial arts, improving the connection between body and mind and sharing the tools needed to see your own self worth, I show women just exactly how strong they can be.
Learning how to defend against aggressors is the best way to stop being afraid. Building character, physical strength, technique, a calm mind and high self esteem will create a strength that will change your life.
Of course, martial arts is not just for women. Learn/improve discipline, self confidence, peace of mind and make yourself proud.
In short: Train with me!
I have use for many different talents. Including car mechanics, photographers, healers, yogi, sparring partners and of course people with farming experience.
If you can cook, wash dishes, build tree houses, forage for mushrooms, entertain me with music, patch a roof, fix a clutch on a ‘79 Mercedes van, do card tricks or possess any other skill that might benefit, I welcome you.
Try me! Maybe you’ll get me fired up with your creative ideas.

I have 4 sleeping arrangements ; 1 camper van, 2 bedrooms inside the cabin and a belltent. But I can house only 2 people at the same time.
There is also plenty of room for vans, caravans and tents.
Will provide 2 or 3 meals a day, let's talk about your needs.
Financially, I am not able to accomodate people with strict dietary needs. So talk to me about that!

I have enough solar panels and batteries to charge iPads, smartphones and laptops. No desktop computers, televisions or refrigerators. There is an excellent WiFi connection and I spend about 1-5 hours a day writing on my laptop for money. Depends on what else I have going on. My primary goal is to focus more on working the land and less on screens. But I'm very open to any type of arrangement. My demands are small and I have a big heart.
I'm building a log cabin. So I currently reside in my own campervan. The cabin is not finished yet, but is already quite comfortable. There are two bedrooms, a kitchen and livingroom. I have a compost toilet in a different structure nearby and there is also a (cold) shower. Which is not too bad when it's 40 degrees outside ;) Plenty of room for tents, vans, caravans or any other type of shelter. Just send me a message and ask me about possibilities.
