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. In other words liking animals is very important ...... If you do not 110% GENUINELY enjoy being around them ...... please choose another host!!!

** all the animals are primarily pets. However, even though I rarely eat meat now, very occassionally practicalities have necessitated in the past that a goose or male lamb has gone in the pot / freezer (not very likely to happen from now on - just so you know).

July & August is hot - so unless you are ok wit... more inside

Hello everyone! Our family is part of a group of 17 friends from all over the world that got themselves together to join forces and energy and make the difference that we want to see around! 2011 was the start of our big adventure, together we bought 40ha of land in the Beira Alta area of Portugal.

The land is pure and wild, has 1,5 km of river that crosses with some waterfalls most of the year. We are totally off-the-grid: only renewable energies as a source of electricity, compost toilets and water from a mine.
We are still setting the physical, emotional and spiritual bases of our common spaces. ...

We are Dreamers, open-minded people and life followers.

Now we are managing 2 projects at the same time one is our house, that we are in the process of closing the outside wood wall, finishing the paper isolation and painting windows!!
The 2nd project is a common one, the proviosinal common kitchen made of light straw and wood!! We need all the help we can have before win... more inside

We are living on a small organic farm in Central Portugal, and are looking for helpers to assist with garden and land work through november and decemeber. We live completely off grid, using solar and hydro to generate electricity. Work is often seasonal and weather dependent. We expect 4-5 hours of work a day in exchange for food and accomodation. Ideally this would suit a couple. This year in March and April we will be doing some land work and setting up for our summer retreat season.


We are located a short walk to our local village of Madeira, but are situated in private woodland surroundings. Please see our website for more detailed information on location and surrounding area. Plenty of swimming, walking and quiet spaces available.
