Aldeia de João Pires, Penamacor, Portugal

We are a British family of 4 setting up an eco project and world school retreat for families in Portugal . Our website blog is called Parent Tribe. We aim to support and inspire creative and holistic families and want to create a place where families can come and learn together and experience off grid simple rural living.

We have recently bought a small farm in Central Portugal and want to make it into a place for other families to visit. We have many projects we would like to add to the place. We already have our house which we would like to add bits to but we would like to make accommodation and facilities for guests as well as creating a food forest and many other things.

We are a couple, Hatti & Garf, with two boys aged 7 and 3 who are learning at home although also involved in the local community and our own family group here every Friday morning.

We are looking for different workaways. Firstly for someone who understands alternative education, enjoys spending time with kids and is also interested in experiencing off grid living and eco projects to come here for a while. This ideally would be a single person to help us with our kids and everyday jobs around the Quinta so that we can concentrate on other projects we’d like to get up and running. We would offer all meals and accommodation would be in a tent and using our bathroom and kitchen. We think this may be suitable for a young adult who has ideally been home/ worldschooled and wants an adventure!

We are also looking for families to come and stay to get involved with projects around the Quinta but we cannot take families until after mid Feb when we have built some outdoor facilities. Ideally when it gets a little warmer so that it is more comfortable. For families we would offer two meals breakfast and lunch but would like contributions to the evening meal or we expect sometimes people might like to go off do their own thing in the evenings.

Hatti runs a graphic and web design business online and also is looking to start a business in flower essences and Garf does the jobs around the farm working towards buildings our family retreat. We would also like help with these things or just to help with our kids whilst we can get on with these projects too.
