In Oct 2009 I acquired a renovated farmhouse which has nearly 8 acres of land with beautiful views situated near Marvao. The land is varied & consists of terraces, some flat & rocky areas with 320 olive trees, cork & fruit trees, vineyard, bullrush ponds,

We currently have 3 friendly sofa loving & playful dogs, 4 crisp stealing affectionate cats, 5 ungrateful cheeky geese, 5 dappy curious sheep, a mixed bunch of 20 plus entertaining chickens / chicks, talkative ducks & last but not least there are the 3 characterful donkeys.

Hi,
I'm Antonio, Italian, age 39, and I'm starting my little sustainable reality in a small garden (3000 mq), 2 km from the village of Pedralva, into the beautiful hills of Algarve (10 km to Carrapateira-west coast, 10 to Budens-sud coast).
In this moment I'm starting the winter garden, but also finishing the house and get ready for wintertime.
Start up means also that there are not all comfort : accomodation is ok into the campervan or tent (for the brave one) but only outside easy shower and of course compost toilet.In the garden there is no internet or phone signal, but there is free wi-fi at the bar in Pedralva.
There are a lot of nice neighborhood to enjoy free time and meet other people.
No male dogs, there is already the old white boss and a new fat lady!
I approciate high motivated people, very interested into sustainable live style and cheap solutions.
I'm not vegan, i dont do yoga and i dont surf...
