A valley abandoned for decades, filled with brambles, some fruit trees, and natural waterfalls, teeming with life everywhere. This was the scenery we found when in 2013, when the sound of the Alpreade river and the late afternoon sunlight surrounding the Gardunha made up our mind, and we decided to stay in this magic place forever.
We left behind our lives in the big city, because we never forgot our countryside surrounded by nature, nurturing our conviction that we could achieve a better life. We come from urban lives, but our passion for the nature brought to us the conviction of a life full of simple things would be a source of happiness. We thought of sharing this special place, truly confident they would feel, like us, this special energy. Everything here goes more softly, with more flavour, color, feeling, more easily affected by the simple things of life.
On our corner of the world, we promote and maintain the balance of our daily actions, supporting eco-friendly solutions for everything that is surrounding us, therefore we would like to promote the following ecological concepts and ideas:
• Reduction of our ecological footprint.
• Use of renewable energy.
• Ecolabel biodegradable cleaning products.
• Recycled paper.
• Valorization of the organic waste.
• Waste separation.
After the wildfires of 2017, we created a project “Seeds with History”, that goes on the reforestation of our farm, that is part of our protected are of the Gardunha mountain. Plantation of oaks, chestnuts, medronho, cork oak and among other species, wild mushrooms productions for the regeneration of the soils, shelters and feeding troughs for birds and other animals that are part of the various moments of this projects that we invite the visitors to participate.
