    Description

    Hey we are Manuel & Zuzu, living on a small farm with two pigs, dogs and cats (that's why Quinta dos Dois).

    We have mixed roots, Manuel (29) is half Portuguese and German; whereas Zuzu (26) is a mix of German, Lebanese and Swedish. We are an active couple, enjoying surfing, ninjutsu & yoga for instance. We love to travel, meet different cultures and we especially love cooking and eating good & healthy food (as you are what you eat).

    We try to get back to the roots by being self-sufficient and working in harmony with nature instead of against it.

    We look for volunteers, that share the interest of a healthy lifestyle and would want to exchange work (4h/5h a day, 5 days a week- but we are flexible) for food, accommodation and the experience of living with us on our little farm. We only just build a little house on the land here and there are heaps of projects to do.

    We are excited to meet some of you personally.
