Beschreibung

I am early retired from a high pressure job in the UK and living simply with two traditionally built Portuguese houses in a beautiful spot overlooking the Obidos Lagoon between the town of Caldas da Rainha and the seaside resort of Foz do Arelho. I have three dogs and two horses at home and work part time as an equestrian professional. We have a large garden and veg patch which I would love to be better tended and old properties always require maintenance.

Weeding, planting, general garden clearing, digging, stable/field cleaning, Competence in use of equipment such as strimmer or chainsaw useful but not essential. DIY skills inside and outside the houses. Applicants need to be self starters, not physically weak and with the ability to follow simple instructions without constant supervision. If you can't push a wheelbarrow full of horseshit and have to do weeding sitting down maybe this is not the place for you.

The houses are rural and out of the village but not isolated. Obidos Lagoon is a magnet for birdwatchers and water sports enthusiasts. Near the house is a sailing school offering sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and other pastimes. Opportunity to learn Natural Horsemanship skills. The forests that border the lagoon are great for hiking and biking. The beach at Foz do Arelho is spectacular. There are bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Foz do Arelho (4km). The local village is in walking distance (1km) and has bars and restaurants and a bus to the town of Caldas da Rainha (6km). Bring mosquito repellant for your comfort at dawn and dusk in the warmer months.
