Horse riding / Golf

Trekking on the beachIt’s December the 7th 2015 and I’m writing this baking in the sun on my front terrace from where I can see Caroline’s property “Luz do Sol” and the shimmer of the sea.

 

 

My family is privileged to live in this peaceful paradise surrounded by our animals, in the valley of Vale Formoso.

We like to share our lifestyle with others, we’re a little laid back and maybe unconventional but we love to take visitors out in the country on our quiet, well behaved horses.

There are a good few rescue dogs of all breeds who seem to be eternally grateful to be fed everyday.  Also, many felines who have found their way her over the years.
