  • Description


    Hello there!

    Me, Lea, and my husband Bruno are renovating the piece of land we recently bought close to Lisbon.
    The property was abandoned with a 1500 sqm land and we are slowly slowly rebuilding it following sustainable solutions such as off-the-grid self-sustained system; permaculture for the garden etc.. We build everything ourselves with second-hand materials, we recycle e compost almost everything, we have 2 dogs, a cat and bees!! :) Soon we will have chickens.
    If you stay with us, you can come with a van or sleep in our detached containers where we usually host guests. I usually cook for everybody, I am vegetarian but Bruno eats some meat from time to time, especially when we do big barbecues with friends.
    The property is 20 mins from Lisbon but the connections to the train station are not the best so having a car can be very useful.
    We like proactive, curious and handy peeps from all over the world.
    Before settling here we traveled the world, so we would love to have people from all around the world!
    We speak English, Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese and I am really keen on learning new ones :)

    We have 2 dogs (big, but super friendly) and one cat. We welcome other dogs, but unfortunately, we can't accept other cats as our cat and dogs don't allow any other cats on the property!

    We offer incredible stories from our travels... Me and Bruno met in Australia; he is Portuguese and I am Italian, and that is just the beginning :)
    On the work side, Bruno is an engineer and he projects and builds everything here. There is a lot to learn.

    Plus, we make a lot of our own food, including our own pasta!
    We would love to share and exchange all this!

  • Aide


    We need help with all sorts of things. The tasks are really never-ending, given that this property has been abandoned for 10 years.
    First, we are still clearing the land to avoid fire hazards, and it's a hell of a project!
    Then, we will be building the chicken coups, the natural pool, the green house etc...
    In general, there are many little tasks to be done of maintenance.

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    There is a ton of things to do around here, from amazing beaches, surfing, wind surfing on the lake, biking etc..
    For the urban folk, you have exhibitions and beautiful tours in Lisbon and Setubal (we live in between the 2).. And of course all the night life that Lisbon, Setubal and Almada can offer.
    It is better if you have a car. Otherwise we can sort something out.
