Eco-holidays in Portugal

We are a family run project and have created a space where you can enjoy the benefits of an eco friendly lifestyle. Having lived off-grid in England for ten years we fully understand the energy saving methods we use and love, to enable us to live with a very low carbon footprint, growing our own food and minimmising waste. Our traditional style stone/slate roof house runs on 12v (Solar, Hydro) and water is syphon-fed from a mine. The smallholding is tucked away in a beautiful valley with great views. We have green oaks, chestnuts, walnuts, many olives and a variety of other fruit trees. There are two waterfalls, a natural plunge pool and three different south facing terraces. Surrounding us are many spectacular walks and places to discover including numerous wild river swimming spots, ancient stone built villages, olive presses and mountain vistas. The beautiful village and people of Cabreira (3 bars + restaurants, 1 small shop) are a 15 minute walk down the hill, and uphill is a short walk through the trees to Cadafaz (1 bar) with its spectacular views.
