    Descrição

    Hi there,

    My name is David and I grew up in Lisboa, and always lived, studied and worked there, until a few years ago I started feeling less and less happy with the kind of life I had. So 1 day I decided to change the stressful kind of life I had in the city for a much more quiet life in the country side, in a family owned property. That was one of the best decisions I've done all my life!
    I have 2 beautiful kids, Kiko (15) and Violeta (5), and they spend part of their time with me. We also have 2 cats and 2 dogs but also my brother's dogs and cats show up here all the time (he's my nearby neighbour) so we are surrounded by plenty of pets.

    The place where we started our new life is a 3.5 ha piece of land less than 50km south of Lisboa (1h drive) in front of Cape Espichel, next to the Ocean and beautiful cliffs and 10 minutes away from the nearest beach.
    This land has belonged to our family for more than 40 years. I live in a wooden Bungalow and our project is based on a small Eco farm where we have an organic garden and 40 fruit trees from where we take many of the delicious vegetables we eat from spring to Automn.

    Harmony with nature and a sustainable way of life are major concerns, so electricity is provided by solar panels, water comes from our well, we only use biological higiene and cleaning products, we use dry compost toilets, we compost, recycle and re-use as much as posible.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    I am a communicative and good mooded person that loves nature, to travel, meet new people and sharing life experiences. This project allows us to travel without moving as we receive volunteers from all parts of the world.

    I am half Portuguese and half Spanish and although I always lived in Lisbon I like to say we are an Iberian family :) I can also teach and practice with you Portuguese, Spanish and Catalan (my natural languages), but I also speak English, French, some Italian and basic German (although my german is not enough to keep a conversation.)

    We can introduce you to some of the Portuguese cuisine, show you a bit around the area and explain you about the history, culture and traditions.

    Help is needed in different tasks and we are looking for volunteers preferably multi skilled expertise to help us with the general daily tasks of the house and farm such helping to take as gardening - watering, weeding, planting, - maintenance works (painting, carpentry,etc.) and many others related to life in the country side.

    There is a lot to see in and and around the area!

    Starting with hiking all the paths surrounding the land, you can easily reach the top of the cliffs in the coast (5 mins walk),Cabo Espichel is just a couple of kilometres away.
    It takes 20 mins to walk to the closest village (Azoia), where you can find two cafes and a minimarket. There are buses daily to go to Sesimbra (the biggest town in the area and also quite touristy).
    From Sesimbra and Santana there here are also several daily buses to Lisbon or Setubal ( in case you want to spend a day in the city).

    If you prefer to go to the beach it will take you another 20/25 mins to walk to Praia da Foz, the closest one. Further more you can find other beaches along the coast. There are also some hidden gems we'll be happy to show you.
