This is a stunning space for personal development, surrounded by nature, its a magical hideaway with a beautiful calming energy. Held in a green leafy valley, while only 4km to the nearest town, it feels a million miles away. Secluded, surrounded by trees and wildlife.

We moved here in June 2018 having relocated to Portugal after much travel and exploration. The farm has a large house, two small cottages and stables which are in the process of renovation and decorating. We also have a converted yoga shala and an old riding arena. Our vision is to transform these spaces - which need work - to host retreats/events this year starting in June. As we are at the start of an exciting project we are in need of support to bring it to life and find like-minded people who'd like to collaborate with us.

From June/July we are looking for volunteers or a couple to support us with retreats - jobs range from being in the kitchen cooking, cleaning and turning over the house, hosting and being in contact with clients if we are away, helping in the garden - planting, weeding, clearing the land, composting and fixing things etc. We really want to grow our own food to feed our clients food to plate so experience in organic farming / permaculture would be very welcome. We are looking for volunteers that can commit to longer term stays 1 - 4 months or ideally the whole season (June - November). Usually we ask for around 5 hours work a day for food and board.

We're a couple in their 30's with an earthy life style, we love healthy organic food, travel and the occasional glass of wine. Our intention is that together with the people we live and collaborate with, we live in a harmonious environment and cultivate a deeper connection with Nature inside and out. And enjoy ourselves along the way.

We are trained in holistic therapies such as acupuncture, yoga and qi gong. We host retreats in Nepal and Kenya and run workshops in London and at festivals. We are inspired by beautiful art, love music, dancing, BBQ's with friends and being by the sea.

Our luscious land is located 30 minutes north of Lisbon, near Mafra. It is just 15 minutes drive from the famous Ericera surf beaches. Our neighbours are a Wolf Sanctuary and a National Park (Tapeda de Mafra). We have about 5 hectares and are surrounded by fruit trees and cork. Everyone who visits finds it magical, witnessing deer, owls and hearing the sounds of wolf's at night adds to ambience of this glorious spot.
