The 17 acre 'off-grid' farm is hidden away in the Sao Mamede National Park among forest paths - amazing stargazing.
The property is being renovated to its original state - Stephen is a carpenter/builder and we are happy to share and learn.

Sauna, spring-fed dip pool and compost toilet are the bathroom - work in progress.
"The Sauna is lit every night and a plunge in the dip-pool after, is something everybody has enjoyed so far."

We do not provide insurance and feel that 'Self-Responsibility' and 'Self-Awareness' are far more important.
'Opulence' is not something we strive for!
