ABOUT THE PROJECT, LIVING and JANAS ECOVILLAGE
We are a collective of people united in order to build and live a non-formal education center for sustainability. Since 2012 we already built a multi sectorial project with many areas of intervenction like: agriculture, forestry, carpintary, farm animals, seed and plant nursery, little shop, natural building houses, mushroom production, sider and beer production and many activities for visitors and outside students.
We live with a view to sharing a life of work and learningship and we have a network of resident and non-resident helpers around 10 to 15 people.
The entire project is typically country life and farmhouse builded by an antiquarian. The main house has many old rustic objects (wood and stone) and together with the gardens and the activities that we developt create an incredible way of experience something different.
Since 2012 we already received more than 3000 people in different models of learningship, visit, collaboration, guests and woofing from many countries.
The place is near the sea so if you have car or bike you can go to that beautiful landscapes. If you have your own car you can easily go to Sintra Village, Sintra Mountain or beaches and beautifull cliffs around. We can also suggest good places to you to visit.
By curiosity you can look to our fbook page to see some activities and more photos about the place. You will enjoy that.
ABOUT THE ROOMS
Ideal for single persons or couples (cozy room) or families for familiar room that want a private space in a rustic house for one to a couple of days, near the sea and sintra mountain and cultural places. Also good for individuals that are looking for a couple of days in nature and maybe participate on our activities in the garden to relax.
ABOUT THE DORMITORY MEZZANINE
The dormitory is ideal for guests and travellers with a simple bag or people that are biking that need a simple rest for one or two nights. The mezzanine is wider with 10 single places, matresses made by wool and straw by hand, they are directly in the ground as representative of simplicity and fast stays (equivalent as camping but inside the house). Its good for the ones that dont have much needs and privacy. If you are looking for a place to rest in privicy we really suggest to book a room. The price is igualy cheap and include breakfast. If you have an extra camping bag it would be nice for the ones that are more sensitive to the cold in winter and fall season.
The dormitory is not ideal for elder people 'cause the acess is thru a rustic and small stair that need some good fit. Is not ideal for couples that want privite stay.
Is a really good experience for the ones that want to exercice simplicity in life and rustic matress good for the backspine.
ABOUT THE CAMPING AND CARAVAN PARK
Ideal for the ones or families or couples that want to be more independent but support their stay in a nature field. Please bring all the resources for that stay (tent, matress, camping gas, food, blankets, lights, etc). We afford the space to stay, wire less in the main house.
You can visit all the project, the natural buildings ouside, the gardens, the nursery, the carpintary and little shop.
In the main house you can use the entrances, the common saloon (its big) with one fire place and one fire heater, the big corridor with fire heater, the kitchen and the toilet.
Общение с гостями
While you ll be here you can meet a big team of 10 to 15 people, resident and non resident helpers. There are 3 co-founders living permenently if you are really curious about the beginning and construction of the project.
There will be always someone to support you! The meals are very interesting because you can meet the team and speak english, meet many countries at the same time and share experiences of life.
Другие важные подробности
If you want to have some main meal with the team we asked to advise in advance. Also if you have any special condition supply (celiac, vegan, allergies)
We have wireless internet throughout the house and the pass is 2BB5A6F4DF and the network name is TNCAP3396C1. As we are a big group, we all are using the internet at the same time there may be some allocation in speed or upload. It is rare for this to happen but it's always good warning.
If you want to take a warm shower ask someone of the project to switch on and off the heater. Its not intelligent :) everyone can support you on that.
We live a non-formal educational project and at the weekends we organize workshops or teachings or cultural events in many subjects: agriculture, beekeeping, carpintary, essencial oils, natural cosmetics, tree propagation, energy, and many others.
Many of the workshops are outside in the lands but the theorical part sometime is in the big saloon and a lot of participants ask to have meal with the team so all the living during the weekends can be a little bit different.
There is always privicy in the individual rooms for the guests. We will support you in everything you need.
- Leave the room as you find it. Simple and clean :)
- Everyone respect the work or activities that the collaborators are doing. The best time to have good conversation is in break times or meal times. During works we use to use machines and tools and its good to be focused on that.
- Everyone clean their one plate and dishes. If everyone do that, its easy and simple for the collective!
- If you have animals with you please inform us in advance because we have animal farms and friendly dogs. We need to know the breeding dog race.
- You can smoke in the exterior side of the house, not inside.
- We dont support and allowd alcool and drugs and are not responsable about the individual action of someone that do it. Those actions are not representative of the aims and principles of the co founders of the project.

short video presentation:
“Ecoaldeia de Janas” (ecovillage located in Janas, Sintra) is a collective of individuals working together to build a centre for education on sustainability.
We have a network of volunteers, students, teachers and residents. We engage in different activities, such as organic farming, natural building, renewable energies, apiculture and traditional skills, through Permaculture design principles, cooperative local production and consumption and multicultural inclusion.
If you are looking for something different for a day, a special week-end or a whole week, whether with family or friends, “Ecoaldeia de Janas” is looking forward to welcoming you. Whether you are looking for a peaceful rest immersed in nature or interested in following the activities of our collective life, we are happy to extend our hospitality.
Our guests also enjoy to have organic meals with the team where they can meet diferent collaborators, guests and visitors and have interesting conversations. They also like to see all the project outside, natural buildings, ecosystem and our animals like the sheeps, pigs, chickens and the horse.
Being near Sintra, with its special micro-climate, and knowing the area really well we can also direct you or take you ourselves to visit magical places, magnificent historical sites and monuments and unsoiled beaches.
