If you want to experience a farm, where animals are really a loved part of the family... where the beautiful hills around are embracing you... where the magic of the peaceful enviroment is taking good care of you, Quinta da Coruja is a perfect place to go!
I was living with Shanti and Simon for five weeks. I felt like I was part of the family and enjoyed participating in the daily routines with them: morning and evening work at the stable, taking goats for a walk and feeding the animals. It was nice that there were many different kinds of work. The atmosphere were caring and understanding. On free time you have good chances to have some nice me-time: maybe go exploring the wild nature around you or a cute little village Santa Cruz, spend time with animals or just lay in a hammock reading your favorite book.
Specially I want to thank Shanti for the amazing super duper tasty dishes she made and all the interesting conversations we had about gardening and healthy plants. In Quinta da Coruja you can also have a comfortable accommodation in their beautiful home.
I learned a lot about animals, organic farming and to be honest, myself as well! I'm grateful of the experience I had in Quinta da Coruja and very pleased to recommend this farm for every WWOOFer who are open-minded, independent and motivated. :)
