We are a young family with three little children from the Netherlands. It was our dream to once move to Portugal and build a meaning full and intense life. Portugal fulfilled all our wishes: a agreeable climate with lots of sunshine, space, nature and welcoming people. In spring 2003 we decided to try and make this dream come true. We travelled all around Portugal looking for the right place for us.
And that place we have found: Corgo do Pardieiro. In Portugal's South West, right in the middle of nature and the Atlantic coast is at driving distance. It is an estate of 8,5 ha (21 acres) with lots of old trees, hills, dells, a little creek and many places to experience nature and space.
Here we work every day on establishing our plan: create a natural environment with many different trees and plants that in one way or another contribute to our life and make us self-sufficient as far as possible.
Because we like to share this place and these ideas with others we have created accomodation to receive guests, both on our campsites and in an annex to our house. When setting up the campsites we have paid a lot of attention to the privacy of our guests. We donot want to offer a run-of-the-mill camping, but to make sure our campers experience nature to the maximum extend by widely spacing the sites and limiting the number.
A place where everybody can BE!
