We are surf camp, that takes place on west coast of Portugal close to the beach of Vale Figueiras (5 minutes down to valley),one of the best beach breaks of Portugal!
We started the camp in 2003. Since then all the area of the camp including rooms, terraces, bungalows and yards has been rebuilt and improved.
We are situated in the middle of the Alentejo Natural Park, we chose the place which is wild and out of the city rush and traffic to get a more relaxing and chilling atmosphere. We can also stay all together with our pets in the place, and still the big cities like Sagres and Lagos can be reached in less than 30 minutes drive!!
The whole camp has been built by ourselves and we live here as one big family, sharing the way of life with positive vibes, love and friendliness!:)
Hello ,We are Hugo and Shirly .. just start to manage a new Hostel in Merida.. Come and have fun with us.. goods plans and nice experiences...
Im french, and my wife is Venezuelian... we are 27 years old.
We are in need of help urgently, with rebuilding the front of our house as the bad weather has caused it to collapse, also help in building a gallery for my husbands picture framing business, and we would like to set up a vegetable garden and raised herb garden. I am in my mid 50's married for 37yrs, have 4children who are all married with children of there own, and live away from home. We live in a large 350yr old French farm house, which we have been doing up for 20yrs on a small budget, which has become more difficult since my husband fell and broke his back, there are lots of opportunitys for gardening, building, and general renovation work.
After 30 odd years in the removal business, since his fall my husband has opened a picture framing business. I enjoy water colour painting, and lots of crafts,eg sewing/embroidery, lace making, knitting, and we are willing to share our skills. We try to be as active as possible, and enjoy walking, cycling, and swimming in our pool, we are very open minded about other cultures, food, tradition and customs, and are eager to experience different ways of life.
The project is a little three story city house build in the 1920ties.
It is located really closed to the main railway and bus station (ZOB). I try to renovate old style, if possible using material from that time. One apartment and the stairway still need a complete renovation. A green roof will top the house with various vegetation.
I studied gardening architecture, so there is also a tiny garden with subtropical plants to be taken care of. Aditionally I raise a rare black chicken breed at a place nearby, so egg collectors and chicken raisers are also welcome :))
I live in a small village named Kalianyar 15km from the nearest town (Bondowoso). With a friend I'm trying to set up a tourism program in my village. Our goal is to develop an eco-tourist village, and to offer visitors to learn about our way of life. So far weve tried plastic waste recycling training with the help of a friend from France. We are also starting to give extra English lessons or assist the English teacher at the kalianyar primary school.
I am welcoming workers to come to my village to share my way of life, help me develop the tourism program (by talking, giving ideas) , give some English lessons depending on your level If you have any ability or experience in eco tourism and environment well be glad to learn from you. For the lessons to be effective, longer stays (at least 2 weeks) are preferred .
Easy access to Bondowoso by bus. I can pick you up at the Bondowoso bus station. Internet access and supermarket available in Tamanan( 3 km away). We can provide bikes.
From Bondowoso you can go to the Ijen volcano .
