The FAIA Collective

Hi guys! We are 4 young entrepreneurs (still in our twenties) and we started a collective this year: a biodynamic and organic farm, an eco hostel with campsite, and cultural/educational/outdoor activities. We offer a variety of jobs, with lots of chilling sessions, and fun while working hard. Find yourself in the middle of a beautiful environment, the Serra da Estrela (Mountains of the Star), the biggest nature park of Portugal.

Good food, good company, good ideas and that is what we want: to share the good life with you. We all come from different backgrounds and have different talents. We believe that is our strength, because it is this place (where we live and work together) that binds us. Our ultimate goal is to develop the different branches into a sustainable business (both in durability as ecologically) that uses its profits to achieve its idealistic goals. We are realistic idealists.

The FAIA Collective is a great community to live not so far from a city but in the middle of a wonderful natural place! I've got enough free time to discover around and to enjoy my stay there! I felt so good living in this community! Thank you to the Faia Collective and I really recommend this place if you're interested to work outside and to be part of a group!
Moreover, as all the creators are from the Netherlands, you can learn some dutch there ;)
