We have a Villa with an apartment, cottage and a Yurt available for holiday guests to rent in 5 acres of countryside, 7 km from Portimao and 11 km from Monchique.
FROM APRIL 2018 (2 WEEKS) WE NEED A HARD WORKING COUPLE TO HELP DO GARDENING, VEGETABLE PLANTING, CLEARING BRAMBLES AND WEEDS PAINTING AND ASSIST IN MAINTENANCE WORK. YOU MUST BE HAPPY TO WORK WITH INSTRUCTION AS A TEAM AND FEEL COMFORTABLE TO WORK TOGETHER WITHOUT SUPERVISION (SOMETIMES).
You will need to be friendly, hardworking, like working outside, flexible attitude and willing to help as a team to get projects finished. We provide you basic vegeterian food to make your own breakfast, and dinner. We ask you assist in making vegeterian lunch. 9 am to 1 pm (LUNCH BREAK communal lunch) 2 pm to 4 pm. You will get 2 days off after volunteering 5 days.
You will stay in the caravan. It is cosy with a heater. There is an outdoor kitchen and dining area and you have communal showers and toilets (hot water). TV and dvd player. There is free wifi, so bring your lap top, great hiking and walks near by , a large lake nearby, and a very friendly dog and cats.
There is a local bus service at the end of the track to Portimao on the coast with great beaches, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops etc and to the lovely green mountains of the old town of Monchique. A taxi will cost between €12-18. We have local restaurants nearby within a 10 to 15 minute walk.
We ask that you have your own health insurance and give us a contact number of your next of kin in case of any emergencies. We only usually like to accept helpers who are willing to stay a minimum 2 of 3 weeks. We do not accept volunteers for one week because it takes two to three days to train. This is non negotiable, so please do not ask! Please once you decide to come, commit to your decision because it takes time and energy to organise volunteers accommodation and work and in the past we have had to write "no show" on the profiles of the volunteers who never arrived.
So if you are interested in spending some time with us, able to commit to the dates you can come, don't mind working hard when needed and want to have fun in the sun, in a cool, chilled out environment, can smile often and laugh lots then contact us. We have a strict no drugs policy and people who have problems with alcohol please do not come to us. Smoking is strictly outside only. We encourage a healthy, laid back vibe.. we are not a party animal kind of place.
