Quinta de Serenidade
Distrito / Concelho: Orca, Fundao
How long since the project started?: 1 - 2 years
Opportunity: Sharing land
I bought a small quinta (approx 7000sqm) in 2012 but cannot manage it alone. (I have Fibromyalgia). I am looking to find partner/s or rent the farm to a small family or group. I would love to see it used for permaculture projects, education etc.
It has a recently re-constructed well, a stream, granite boulders, great views, 3 levels including class A land at the lower section with some fruit trees and a few olive trees. I had a small wooden house built which has solar and wind power, wood burner, furniture etc. A 5m bell tent, a caravan with solar panel, a superb compost toilet and lots of useful bits & pieces, tools etc. It would be good to add a borehole and have running drinking water although not essential as nearby fountains are excellent. There is a lot of potential there!
10 mins walk to friendly village with restaurant, shops, cafes & post office. 20 mins drive to Fundao with excellent weekly market. Some lovely like-minded families and couples with their individual farms nearby; French, English, Dutch & Portuguese :)
I cannot continue this project on my own. Wwoofers have helped a lot, but I need help lifting, carrying, construction etc all the time
Anyone looking to do this with me or without me please get in touch :)
It is such a beautiful place with wonderful energy.
I am open to ideas/suggestions :)
