Quinta do sol

You will benefit from multi-language-kids speaking space, living on top of a beautiful mountain, near to a medieval castle and city, near to the Spain border, so you can enjoy your free time and explore another places and countries. You can live the experience of staying in an old-english-gipsy-caravan, with a permaculture landscaping design outside. Quinta do Sol is a place to share, teach and learn. Here you can learn about water management, eco-building, gardening, recycling, upcycling, survival, wood working and about new cultures and languages - because you will stay in touch with people from many places. That is also a good opportunity if you like to cook or try new foodies. You can climb, walk through a medieval-stone-path, swim in a natural lac or river, enjoy yoga or meditation time - you will be close to wild nature in a small paradise.

In a lovely place with old cork trees and spring water, we are a small community trying to building an Oasis for the next generation. I live with my 2 kids, Alice and Olmo, and Elia and Gaby; in a forest, wild animals , a dog and some cats. Coming from childhood dream to live in a treehouse, we start this project 6 years ago, in a small caravan in the forest, on the slope off a mountain. Now with much more conforme but still with conscience of where come from things. We are restoring a farm to create a refuge in a very privileged place to care for people and earth. From now 2021, we are looking for gardener and eco-builder to creat nice garden, clean land and make a tree house. Also play music and playing with the kids ;). The food is vegetarian and accommodation is camping: you can stay in a gipsy caravan, tente, tipi or in a thatched hut. You can use the hot shower and kitchen. It is simple, but lovely, specially in summer or spring time. The week end are free, the food are include and we tack turn for cooking.. We are waiting for you! :)

The Quinta do Sol is an amazing place, the structure is incredible (Fred's house is amazing, The bathroom, The oficina), If you like woodworking as much as I do, you’ll be delighted. Fred, his frieds and volunteeres are welcoming and loving.
The caravan I stayed in is super spacious, but has a serious problem of fly infestation and needs special attention.
There is a lot to learn, so I recommend you stay longer, I think I didn’t stay long enough to learn everything I wanted But was a great Experience.
Thanks for everything!

Ficamos cerca de 1 mês na Quinta do Sol e aprendemos muitas coisas... desde projetos de construção, restauração, criação até palavras em francês, como fazer compotas e conservas com azeitona e até improvisamos uma chocolateria. Fomos a festivais, fizemos noites de pizza, conversamos muito e fomos recebidos como parte de uma grande família que é a Quinta do Sol.
Alice, a fada, às vezes panda, e Olmo, o mago, são crianças mágicas e com muita energia. O Fred se tornou um grande amigo!
Obrigada Fred e a todos da Quinta! Esperamos voltar um dia.
Um abração!
