    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Daily contacts with the friendly locals, I can tell a lot about Portuguese culture; I am a very experienced gardener so I can coach or supervise whoever wants to learn more by doing it. I am a chef and love to prepare traditional dishes as well as Indian food.

    Due to reducing mobility and an eye condition I would be delighted when you could help me in house and garden, general maintenance, incidentally being my driver in my car with automatic gear, and pet care/walking my dogs. In 2019 10 m2 wall tiling or plastering with loam, painting indoor walls when it is too hot to work outside are some of the planned diy jobs.
    The garden with a small pond and a raised veggie bed gives always a lot of work. In November I need two helpers (sharing a bed) to help with the olive harvest.
    When pet sitting is the main objective so that I can go away for a week or so, your stay will be self catered without other chores.

    Important notice: I need helpers who are fluent in Dutch, English or Portuguese, minimum age 25 years;
    Due to my own health condition I cannot cater for vegans and raw foodists, but you are free to prepare your own meals.
