Our home in paradise. The original mill dates back to Roman times and produced wheat and rye. Other signs of its history include a wine press cut into the stone outside our front door, a small settlement of ruins, free standing stones and a set of ancient bread ovens. The mill itself now serves to provide us with hydro-electricity.

On discovering this dream land our vision was clear right from the beginning. To share this piece of paradise, cultivate the land and create an off grid sanctuary; for healing, retreats or simply for those who wish to come and enjoy some time in a tranquil oasis.
The land and nature, in this sheltered valley, offer all the holding and peace one may need to reset and breathe. A place for growth and grounding. Getting back to the basics and the simple joys of being immersed in nature, swimming in the river, watching wild life and exploring the woodland and ancient stones. A place to learn and share. A place to unwind, cleanse and clear the mind and body.
Nature expresses itself in an especially exuberant way in the Natural Park of the Serra de São Mamede. We are continued to be astonished by this beautiful part of rural Portugal. With its untouched nature, ancient fortresses and unique wildlife it feels like heading back in time.
