All about Justbellavista
Who are we?
We are Steve and Ally and we are a go-get-it couple who aren’t very good at sitting still. We work hard and play hard and always have a ton of projects and adventures on the go.
We have just finished, (minus a few tweaks) our first house on our property in the north east Algarve in Portugal. Our first log cabin is part of a master plan involving three more houses to make a small holiday complex offering motorcycle tours in our beautiful part of Portugal, featuring stunning scenery, gorgeous sunshine and empty roads.
At home we are trying to convert our rocky property to a verdant paradise and live off the fat of our land as much as we can. Our house is powered and our water heated by solar and we collect all our grey water to help keep our little slice of paradise green. We are resourceful make and mend kind of people who save all our odds and ends for future projects and try to make as much of what we need ourselves, from what we have, to keep our costs low. I love to fiddle in the kitchen inventing and trying new recipes with the gluts of produce that are sometimes all ready at once. Steve loves to fiddle with technological gadgets or play in his man-cave making wood or metal work projects. We both have to put a lot of time and effort into keeping the boat afloat.
