Timber tipis and clay clad walls

... here is particularly strong. The house is walled with lime and sand (outside) and sieved red clay and sand (inside). the paths are free draining gravel. Two freshwater, if brackish, springs provide water. The horses dung and hoof clippings are dug into the veg patch. And the whole site has an air of quiet and contemplation but without the stagnant passivity this hot and dry landscape can induce! I had dismissed this beautiful corner of Portugal without a ...
