Hello, my name is Paul.
I'm living on this beautiful land and started to restore the two houses and grow organic vegetables. I have a little veggie garden to look after, cleaned the terraces, pruned half of the 90 olive-trees, some of the grapevines and hazels, which were not looked after for more than 10 years, when I came here. There are some fruit-trees like citrus, cherry, kaki and apple, a freshwater-spring for drinking water and a little stream down in the valley to enjoy. There are many different types of work to do, especially extending the veggie-garden, some heavy land-cleaning, care for and cutting of some trees, building and restoring the houses and some dry-walls.
It is situated close to the city of Portalegre in the beautiful Sao Mamede national park. Portalegre is easily accessible by public transport. There is an apartment, a room and a little yurt for people staying here. Food is vegetarian and mostly organic.
Besides working the land and looking after and homeschooling my two young daughters every other week, I work a few hours online as a coach and psychologist and build yurts and domes once in a while. I traveled a lot and I am interested in different cultures, music and sustainable building and meeting like-minded people. I speak English, German and Dutch. There are rooms and a caravan to stay. There is water and electricity available if you come with a camper.
Looking forward to meet you.
