It was my first time doing volunteer work so I can't compare it with other places but I don't need it for this comment... :) I had much fun and Paulo and Maria were very helpful for the work and my journey after this place. Thank you for all your help and the nice time...

Incredible!!! Absolutely loved working with Maria and Paulo. Their permaculture farm is beautiful and you will learn so much about fun, simple living. They let you choose what work you want to do and what mark you leave on their new home. I cannot wait to come back and visit and see the progress they make! Highly recommend to any world packer :)

Bota.Nicas is the perfect place for those in love with nature who are willing to help and have a good dosis of creativity. The place is still very rustic, so there is a lot to do and you are free to pick any task you fit to. The sky is the limit there =)

Bota.Nicas is a fantastic place to stay if you are looking for a natural space to be. Paulo and Maria are very kind and are always paying attention to anyone's needs. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in Permaculture and bioconstruction, as this project has a lot to offer! :)

Bota.Nicas was amazing!!!!
The place is still very wild and untamed, and there´s always work to be done, and things to be built. It´s the perfect place for people who like adventure, nature and building things!
Paulo and Maria are great people and took me in as one of their family. They also gave me the freedom to choose what I wanted to build.
It was simply amazing! I highly recommend it to all adventuring people.

About the host

Bota.Nicas é um projeto embrionário de uma quinta rural baseada na permacultura, inserida num meio completamente rural. Um espaço edílico, onde so se ouve o cantar dos pássaros e da água a bater nas pedras. Possui imensos castanheiros, carvalhos, nogueiras e outra árvores que estamos a plantar. Necessitamos da tua ajuda para construir este espaço que também é teu.
