About our home

Two bedroom mosquito and bug screened self contained cottage in it's own land with swimming pool and bbq area both a traditional wood/charcoal BBQ and separate gas BBQ which is much safer to use in the summer months.
With separate yurt in the cottage grounds again with screened window although we don’t have many mosquitoes in our area of Portugal. You can use the yurt to relax in or indeed sleep in if you wish the yurt has electricity with large ceiling fan but doesn’t have wifi. The yurt has a double bed. There is an adjoining bathroom to the yurt with shower and compost toilet.
We have a small menagerie of farm animals, 2 donkeys including a miniature donkey, a mini pig, chickens, peacocks, rabbits and sheep none of which you take care of however you can brush the donkeys and also feed the pig your food leftovers if you wish as well as collect fresh organic eggs.
We live in a separate cottage opposite the exchange cottage and so are always available to care for the animals and the swimming pool
