Slow & Simple
Set in a beautiful hillside location overlooking the river Zezere, Fonte de Baixo is a small quinta with a friendly gentle feel. Our aim is to live Slow & Simple.
We want to live in such a way that the quality of life for us and the planet is more important than the attainment of wealth and material belongings.
Who are we?
Two fairly ordinary people who decided a few years ago to get off the 9-5 bus and live a slow and simple life.
We try to live sustainably and keep it local. Whatever we do, we try and do it mindfully and allow each day to unfold following a natural flow of energy. What needs to be done is mostly done, but not always and that doesn't bother us in the least. There is always tomorrow!
We grow most of our own food and it is totally organic, we eat a vegetarian diet and live with the tempo of the seasons. We make cheese and yoghurt from our own goat's milk and keep Indian Runner ducks and honeybees.
