We are a dutch family of 4 who have lived in the Algarve for nearly 13 years. Up till now, we had a beautiful eco-lodge, renting a yurt and a gypsyvan. Fate has it that we lost everything in the forest fires that raged through the area of Monchique August last year.
We want to turn our hill into a happy and green hill again! Our dream is to create a couple of eco living areas for families to join us on this journey. We have learnt a lot in the past 12 years, and it feels like a chance to start again, now applying those permaculture principles we were not aware of before.
We un-school our two kids of currently 8 (Ravi) and 10 (Ayla), and would very much like to have families with kids, so they can play together, learn, interact...
If you like to help building up a place from near scratch, with possibilities of staying, you are very welcome to get in touch.
We cannot offer you accommodation, since it burnt down, so you need to have your own van, which you can park on your own platform, where the trampoline is (amazing view). You will have to share our toilet and outdoor shower.
The idea is that you have your own little space and are independant, yet there is communal time when both parties desire to.
We do not offer meals, only when the wish to share meals arises from both families. We also do not demand a certain amount of work, it is all flexible, subject to the flow of the moment. We value open communication about your wishes and ours, feedback is always welcome. The idea is that the experience is an enrichment for all!
