  • Descrição


    Hi! I am Ana! I am a city girl who moved to my husband's family's farm, in Monte da Pedra, Alentejo. We live with our 4 boys, aged 8, 5, 3 and 1, in this lovely and quite place.
    The farm is away from the city, and the nearest villa is 8 minutes away by car.
    This farm has 200 hectares, where horses, sheeps and chickens can run freelly and safe, with the 4 dogs taking good care of them. We also have a lovely cat.
    In the farm you can take long walks in the nature, ride a bycicle, go swim in the dam or swimming pool, relax near the river that flows from autumn to spring, and listening the birds and the silence. By night, you can be amazed with the sky full of stars.
    I have a master degree in veterinary medicine, but since i was pregnant of my second son, i've turn my life to family and tried to take advantage from the farm. So, in 2021 my husband and i started to breed sheeps. We are also slowly building some rooms for agritourism.
    My husband, Miguel, graduated in law, also have exchanged his desk work for the farm duties and stays all day manageing the farm, doing all kind of work. He loves motorcycles!
    The current year, i am homeschooling my oldest son, who joins me in every activity in the farm. The other three are at kindergarden.
    Our families still living in the city and we don't have anyone near by to help us with the farm or kids.
    Our family loves to recieve people and exchange knowledge and adventures! We would love to receive workawayers!

  • Acomodação


    As we are trying to do agroturism in the farm, we have 3 rooms with private bathroom. The room will be shared if there are two workawayers simultaneously and if there are any guests using the others rooms. But, maximum, two workawayers per room.
    The kitchen is in the maine house, wich has a living and dinning room, too. The main house is a place to share with other visitors. In the kitchen, you can find the basic accessories for eat and cooking and microwaves, stove, oven and cooffe maker.
    Near the pool, there is outhouse where you can do a barbecue.

    Algo mais...

    Workawayers will be sharing our family space and small paradise, so we would like to ask visitors to share a calm mood, be gentle with all animals and to be carefull with the environment. We will also ask workawayers to be tiddy with the spaces they use.
    Normally, I stay in the farm during the morning and early afternoon and then I'll go to the nearst town for kids extra activities and/or go to the supermarket. The nearst town is around 30 minutes by car, and there are no public transports to get there from the farm. I have a spare seat, if visitors need/want to go to the city, or to pick them to the farm. My husband is used to do the same journey in the morning. In the city, you can visit the rice museum, Ponte de Sor museum, the art gallery, see the urban drawings and walk on the rivers garden.
    The farm is really isolated! The nearest village is 50minutes walking/15 minutes by bycicle/6 minutes by car.
    Theres are some beautifull villages nearby, but without a car, is difficult to get there, since there is only on bus per day nearby. But, perhaps, we could arrange a trip in our car! In the nearest city, there are more bus to get to other towns.
    Close the farm, there is a beautiful walkling trail, that leads you to old water mills; there are too pre-historic dolmens.
