Most of the Central Portugal is truly remote, wild countryside and it is precisely this sense of wildness and remoteness which gives the area its peacefulness. Quinta do Vale is an off-grid cottage, built lovingly with eco friendly materials, sitting on a hectare land, with lawn, garden and woodland.

We are a family of 4. Chris is a musician and V teaches Chinese in the local Steiner school. We have 2 energetic boys of 8 and 3 years old. We offer a wooden cabin with a double bed with breakfast and lunch. We have hot water and unlimited broadband connection. There is a push bike that you can borrow.

?We are in the process of building an eco reciprocal roof roundhouse with an attached vermicomposting toilet. At the same time we are increasing our irrigation system on the hillside for more trees and brushes.

We are looking for someone to
