Peter and Joke

A little bit about ourselves. In may 2006 we decided to give up our working live and nice house in a crowded part of Holland and to search for a different spot on the globe to live for a while. Not because we were tired of Holland, but just to live a totally different life.

After 1,5 year of travelling we decided to stay in Portugal, especially this part of Portugal, the southwest Alentejo, stole our hearts. It took a few months before we found a piece of land that fitted with us and our plans, and even longer before we could call it our own. 

We had a house built in a traditional style of earth from our own land. We cleaned part of the land and put a special tent on the most wonderful spots.
