We, Angelika(67) and Christof(64) are living in an old shist-house at the edge of the village Chã de Alvares in the mountains. The house is completely restored with 4 rooms, 2 guestrooms, kitchen and bathroom with solar warm water.
There is a small chicken house, some sheds, a workshop and a garden with greenhouse, fruit and olive trees and a big variety of plants. There is another small house with three more rooms that needs some renovation to be done.
