Testimonials

Thank you for the opportunity to rest and enjoy food together in your beautiful and magical home.  Your hospitality and warmth felt genuine and welcoming and encouraging – a space filled with the ever changing light of the mountain and the soft and calm of a peaceful life. I have loved the conversations and enjoyed the laughs and surprises.  Magican and timely.  We will see you again, Victoria

Such a peaceful, joy-filled and insightful time, thank you for sharing your home, garden and produce, love and conversation.  I hope the garden is bountiful in the season to come.  Love and light to you, Stephen

Victoria and Stephen Black - October 2018

Thank you very much for these peaceful and restful days with you both.  I have enjoyed getting to know you better, trying food from your spiritual garden and exploring the cave of my soul.  I will go back to my day to day reality stronger, peaceful and ready to tackle a new phase of my life.  We were meant to meet each other and I am very glad we did.  I admire your calm and presence which I will try to develop throughout my live.

We are blessed to have encountered your path and were wonderfully welcomed to the peace of your home and it felt like a much needed retreat these two days.  We are very grateful.  Thank you!!

It’s a wonderful place here just to be.  No one expects something from you, that’s a great gift.

My days passed so quickly and I think that is a very good thing….  I love that special view of the mountain when staying in the garden.  Everything is calm and warm.  Just as Caroline and Gregory are.  They take a lot of care and that’s a good feeling for me.  Caroline is an awesome chef, her meals are so good and she was always up to mind my vegan diet.

Wish I had more days to see all the places up in the mountains they recommended.  Caroline and Gregory are very open minded and conscious and I like their spiritual way and to talk about these things.

Thank you for the good energy.

Once upon a time I walked into this house and what seemed to be like another dimension, higher one, where time stopped in my life for two days.  I stepped into an Indian time, to atmosphere where I can sense talk of Mother Earth and Divas blowing on her skin.  I had intensive and personal Shamanic course with Gregory, which I am grateful!!  I was blessed to meet them and spend time with them.   Spiritually I return home.  I also had the opportunity to meet volunteer worker Anouk.  Who has a singing voice like an Angel.

I loved the energy of the house, it seemed balanced and elevated the people too.  Once again thank you Gregory and Caroline.  It was a privilege to get to know you and be your guest!

Thank you, for the wonderful time, before I leave I have to confess a crime. I ate all your apples and a load of lemons, but you should still have enough to carry on.  In exchange I build you a big Hugelbed, so hopefully you are not all too mad.  I really enjoyed my stay in your beautiful house, thank you for everything, in love Klaus.Thank you for this wonderful time.

My stay with Caroline and Gregory has been such a great tonic.  My first 3 weeks in Portugal have been wonderful here.  Such warmth and friendliness and a very comfortable stay.  It has been great to enjoy the fruits of the garden too and to remember how blessed we are.  Thank you so much for having me.
