Would you like to live in our beautiful off-grid peaceful paradise we have helped create with nature?
Would suit a couple of Independent, practical people who love being in nature away from the kaos of urban life.
Sebastien is from France originally and lived in Switzerland then Indonesia where he met Felicity from Uk. We moved to Portugal 5 years ago with our cat Odin travelling around in a truck searching for the dreamland, we found it and now work very hard to maintain our shared vision. This land is set on the edge of a village near Tabua & Oliveria do hospital. Seb's passion is music & cooking and Felicity has a small ethical clothing business, together we combine our creativity and develop a magical space in which to grow.

We're looking for people to get involved with us to maintain our farm, 5.5 hectares of lush terraces and enchanted oak woodlands. We'd really appreciate help with the ongoing care that's needed to manage this beautiful land.
We have done most of the hard graft in clearing bushes and brambles but there's still lots to do. Trees to be felled.,wood to be chopped. Streams to be cleared, ponds to be dug..or love to be given in pruning various trees and general land management.
Our organic vegetable garden has been recently redesigned & now supplies us with delicious homegrown food! Weeds always need removing and depending on the season some veg/seeds may need planting.
The land is very diverse and we feel very lucky to have found such a special place with so much potential to create different areas within this Quinta.
We are looking for enthusiastic hands-on practical & creative people ideally with skills and knowledge we can all share.
People with skills in construction & woodwork & have used power tools are extremely welcome.
Tasks can be physical but always enjoyable especially in the idyllic natural environment and sunny climate.
