hello, we are Martina and Bernd. We are living with our daughter Zsa Zsa in the heart of Portugal and try to realize our idea of a healthy and happy life in nature.
Since 15 years we work on our farm with an organic garden, food forest and bamboo garden. We want to do our best to inspire others to protect and preserve the natural world by living a simpler, greener lifestyle and we invite our guests to enjoy products from our garden.
We run a small business with a guest house, apartment and a wooden zen house.
The guesthouse is to rent as a complete house or partially as an apartment. It was once an old granite stone house and has been extended and renovated by us with traditional and modern eco-friendly materials.
The wooden zen house was designed and build by us according to the idea of the Japanese Zen minimalism.
Our 2 hectares boast natural bamboo, olive and fruit trees, the ideal surroundings for those who enjoy nature at its best. You can relax and take in the beautiful surroundings or take part in some of our arranged activities.
As we are the founders and organizers of the Taekwon-Do Academy Tábua and Yoga Chikitsa Portugal where we give ongoing local courses, we offer the possibility of daily personalized yoga practice at our farm. It is also possible to train Taekwon-Do and Wing Chun Kung Fu, as we are qualified teachers.
