In the middle of Portugal you can find a little magical valley. Ancient stone structures will remind you that generation before have worked this land. However, during the last decades this part of rural Portugal has been mostly abandoned.

This little patch of magical valley starts at the river and covers a hill with a watermill ruin, an animal shed, lots of trees, bushes, wild plants and brambles.

The valley is attached to the friendly village Benfeita, in Central Portugal. After a beautiful 15 minutes walk arrive at the central square of the mountain village. The area is calm, sweet and vibrant.

Below you can find a short movie about the way we lived on the land in 2018. By now, Else is not part of the project any more. But we are still good friends and she lives close by. :-)
