  • Description


    Hi! My name is Ashley, I'm in my early 30s, I come from the festival and events industry, having worked all over the UK and Europe touring and managing bands. I practice archery and falconry, which I offer as experiences to guests, as well as motorcycle riding. I also teach guitar, I've just built a big star shaped campfire, just below the stage area, and a natural spring fed pool, and looking for help making the bar and kitchen (it will be in a huge festival tent I got recently) and decorating making swings/seating/maybe a zip line? and anything else you can think of that would look cool 😎

    My family have a holiday site back in the UK, and i am building a non profit, totally off grid eco friendly self sustainable creative exchange project. The solar electricity set up at the monment has 2 systems, each with household power, and WiFi is available through hot-spot. We have washing facilities, washing machine, showers, a communal fridge (well stocked with beers ciders ;) I am close to Castelo Branco, around 15 minutes away, perched on the top of a beautiful mountain with simply the best views of the gardunya mountains and Sierra estrella mountains, sandwiched between pine forrest, olive groves and eucalyptus trees, and natural rock foramtions there is plenty of hiking and exploring on offer! If you like nature, this place is for you. Boar, deer, eagles, chameleons, eagles, lizards, kites, vultures and praying mantis can all be seen.

    There is a great community within the valley, with several others having workaways, and there are different events going on all the time, which we all support each other with. A solar Cinema, mindfulness and relaxation therapies, yoga, cocoa, tattooing, reiki and other ceremonies. Dance nights on Saturdays, rock and roll on Fridays, and reggae Sundays. Basically, I am building a pallet lodge, and an earth building, and would love to share my knowledge with others. Drop me a message to find out more! Stay as long or as little as you like. I'm super friendly, there's no pressure, it's all about meeting new people, and having fun 🎸🍻🤟🎉😁 we support local friends around us that produce their own organic fruit and vegetables.

    🚫 No under 20s or people who cannot think/tidy/clean up after themselves or their pets. Own vehicle preferred.
