I'm so happy I didn't give up after my first attempt to contact was expired... Eventually Andrea answered and accepted our application and that's how it started our amazing experience in Serra da Estrela.

The landscape is incredible, the energy is fantastic and dealing with the goats was definitely the best part of the experience!

Not to mention how wonderful was their welcome to Pipoca, she felt home so quickly with all the other animals on the farm! ♡

Thank you Andrea and all living things at Rainbow Lodge to make us feel so comfortable during our stay there ^_^
