We are a male couple - brazilian and dutch guys - running and owning a little hotel in the middle of the Atlantic Rain Forest, in the rural area of Paraty in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. We and our guests use to say our place looks like a friend's house. More than just hosting our guests as friends, we enjoy to cook for them and we are trying to be more and more self-sustainable in health food and pure water, our care and production.
Help in the house
Work, learn, enjoy, share good time with the owners - a male couple - and our guests in our guest house that looks like a friends’ house, located 11 kms far from the center.
The help we need is gardening, cleaning, looking after our pets (dogs and cats), and once-in-a-while with small constructions.
We would like to have volunteers who are pro-active, friendly, open midded, flexible, really interested in work and learn new skills and who likes to be in the middle of nature.
We offer good food, housing and share our knowledge and skills.
The owners can speak portuguese, english, dutch, german and spanish. So, we expect the volunteers can speak well at least one of this languages.
Our proposal is: for each day of help (8 hs) the volunteers can have one free day. In other words, they will volunteer 3,5 days and have 3,5 free days, in average per week.
Even in the free days, they can eat here, but they have to cook and do the dishes. We provide the food.
We are searching for one single man or two men or a man and a woman as volunteers, above 25 years old, who will be honestly involved in the fair exchange of work by house and food.
Cultural exchange with the owners, with the brazilian and forgners guests and also with the locals.
portuguese, english, dutch, german and spanish
A little house or one of the spaire bedrooms of the guest house, depends on the availability.
The volunteers will have the possibility to enjoy the surroundings in their time off: the historical center of Paraty, the beaches, waterfalls, tours by boat, trackings etc. We are located 1,2 km from the main road (BR-101) where many local buses can be easly taken to go and come back.
