I'm Flo, 30 years young and I bought myself a farm this year with 1.7 hectares, located in Cernache do Bonjardim/Alcobia (central Portugal). I'm originally from Bavaria, and moved here to have my own piece of land where I can live sustainably, and make my life here in peace. I am renovating the old house here and working to create a distilling operation on my property, and enjoy life :)

The farm I bought requires a lot of work, helping hands are needed and appreciated! The garden has been started but still can grow more and be well-maintained. The forests on the land also need to be cleaned regularly and the house needs lots of love.

I am a carpenter, builder, handyman and I'm creating my home with love. In the mornings I'm working for others, and in the afternoons focussing on the garden and forest maintenance. So for now anyone with building skills, or gardening skills, these would be the most helpful.

I do many things :) Travellers who like to be hands-on, creative and active, can learn with me basic gardening skills, vegetarian cooking, carpentry work, and also building how to live from the land, and how to enjoy my sense of humour ;)

So travellers will stay in their own double bedroom in the house with me, and we share one bathroom. Bedding and towels are here for you already, there is heating for when it is cold. The house is still in renovation but is still totally functional.

Food is vegetarian, and I prefer guests not to bring meat into the house. Breakfast is provided and self-served from what is around in the kitchen, and I will cook one meal a day (either lunch or dinner). Other meals are the responsibility of guests, but the ingredients are here and this can be a collaborative meal if we feel to, or it can also be independent, as it flows.
