We are a couple (Irish, Patrick and German, Isabel) who are looking for some help in our large house. We have a dog, a cat and chickens, so we are never alone but are always happy about some more company :-) We need some help since we offer some rooms to tourists during the summer (April til October). Patrick is a former head chef and likes to be outside digging in the garden now. He likes physical work and is doing a lot by himself. Isabel is a creative soul and likes to be outside, she is a graphic designer and a social media editor. Both of us are here to help you learn how we do things and have fun at the same time.

Help in the house
There are plenty of opportunities to learn how to surf -We are located next to three different surfspots all learning levels - We have some coorperations with surf schools and surfshops so you can get a discount on rentals and lessons as well. You can learn how to brew Kombucha or make Kefir. Besides all that you can learn a lot about ecological gardening and various plants since we have quite a bit of land where we grow some fruits, vegetables and herbs. And for all animal lovers we also hope you might enjoy some time with our cat, dog or chickens, just because they are kind of unique ;-) You can always get a bike to discover the portuguese countryside and there is also a famous hiking trail passing our village if you are a nature lover.
So we hope you leave us with a heart full of sunshine and a mind ful of new experiences :-)
We ask you to help out for around 4 hours a day. We provide 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). We try and match you with the type of help that suits you. So far we need help with general cleaning of bedrooms and bathrooms, furthermore two daily dog (and cat) walks could be on your timetable as well. If you see anything that needs improvement and you want to help with, feel free to ask.

We have a cosy camper and caravan for our helpers to call home while they are staying with us.
We had some volunteers in previous summers and we hope we can continue this project on workaway. We are only looking for helpers who are happy to socialize, bubbly, lively and love to chat with different people so we can create a bit of a familiar atmosphere and everyone (helpers included) feel a bit like home. Weonly take volunteers who are eating everything and don t have any special diatry requirements, since we cook mainly meals with meat in the season and it is just not paying off, when we have to cook 2 or 3 different meals for one dinner. We are easy going and if you have a problem, just talk with us and we try to solve it with you. We appreciate honest and reliable people who can help us with the daily tasks. So If you think you can fit in under the portuguese palms/pines... feel free to send us a message :-)
