    Description

    Hello workawayers,

    I am Rafael, a Portuguese musician living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
    I have a countryside house at the beautiful Faial island (Azores, Portugal), which during Summer months functions as a Bed and Breakfast (for the moment the B&B is maintained by local staff, no help needed).

    The long-term plan is to transform the property into a nature and art-dedicated site, with a park, eco-agriculture and develop artistic and cultural projects. In June 2017 we organised a very successful Lantern Fest, as part of the Azores Fringe Festival, and we've recently acquired an upright piano.

    For now (2018) we intend to:
    - continue general renovation works
    - draft the concert room
    - beautify the exteriors (terraces, garden, etc.)
    - build a sun deck and fountain

    and develop cultural and artistic projects in site.

    Continuing, in 2019 and 2020 with:
    - building a greenhouse with recycled windows and materials
    - building a natural swimmingpool - pond in the garden

    Since I live abroad, my stays at Faial are often limited to short periods. Therefore, potential helpers need to be EXPERIENCED and able to work and develop (their) projects ALONE.
