Quinta São Bento

I speak English, German and Dutch. I live off-grid and I have hot shower and solar power. There are rooms and a caravan to stay. There is water and electricity available if you come with a camper. I traveled a lot in India and other interesting counties, I am interested in different cultures, music, and sustainable building and meeting like-minded people. In case you'll arrive with public transport, I'll pick you up in Portalegre.

Besides working on the land 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.

Foram dias que me senti vivendo com um amigo, muita simplicidade e consciência no dia-a-dia. Paul está sempre bem disposto para melhorar o seu lugar, e me senti motivado com aquela missão, também está sempre pronto para tomar um café. Assim também, a comunidade que o cerca é impressionante e nos tem muito a ensinar. Odin é um bom amigo e as filhas do anfitrião são muito divertidas. To the good life!

The moments at Paul's farm were incredible and I will always carry them in my memory and heart. It was my 1st experience at worldpackers and the tasks I did were light and flexible:some cleaning on the farm,small vegetable harvests, spending time with the girls, who are very independent, smart and brave. There, I ate delicious food without meat,drank water from a natural source and used energy generated by photovoltaic panels, which has been making me rethink my resources consumption. The farm river is beautiful and I also went with them to a river pool, a lake, and an amazing full moon party!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay! The working hours were flexible and we learned a lot about gardening and sustainability in general. We also enjoyed our talks about psychology and to hear about his life. His daughters are extremely intelligent and friendly from the beginning. We felt really comfortable and would definitely recommend it!!

Infelizmente o quarto que fiquei era precário e com muitas aranhas,enormes. tentei conversar com Paul,mas não houve nenhum tipo de compreensão da parte dele,ele ignorou minhas solicitações de ajuda. num geral falava Alemão com o outro casal que estava lá tb, eles faziam questão de só falar em alemão.Me senti excluída, fora outras coisas desagradável que presenciei. Infelizmente Paul não foi nada flexível como diz ser. A cidade mais próxima fica cerca de 40 minutos a pé,então fiquei totalmente isolada, porque ele não queria levar até a cidade quando precisei.Odin foi meu melhor companheiro
