Everything you need to know if you want to come see us

If you love animals, plant medicine or peace and quiet, you are very welcome to come and visit. You can come for a few hours, a day, a week, or even longer sometimes. This page will take you through the practicalities of a visit and answer questions you may have, but feel free to contact us if you would like to know more.

We want to make sure that everyone who visits enjoys their stay, and understands the special nature of our home. Over the Edge is primarily a working farm. Our days are organised around taking care of the animals, caring for the land and distilling. We live with horses, dogs and cats who move freely around the place, so a love of animals is a prerequisite for an enjoyable visit. You need to take into consideration that we are far from ‘civilisation’ and there is no public transport except for taxis. Also you need to have a reasonable level of mobility to negotiate the slopes in and around the camp. If I haven’t put you off yet, than read on for details of how and when to visit. 

How To Get Here

We are 1.5 hours from Faro airport or 2 hours from Lisbon. From either airport you can easily catch a train. They leave 3 or 4 times a day to Funcheira station, 20 minutes from us. We can pick you up from there (cost €20 unless otherwise stated). More info on trains in Portugal here.

Airport Transfer

We can arrange pick up from Lisbon  for €200 per vehicle (so cost per person is divided by the number of passengers) or Faro for €100.

You can also travel by bus from either Lisbon or Faro to Ourique, more info here. We can pick you up from Ourique (cost €25)
