    Beschreibung

    I am early retired from a high pressure job in the UK and living simply with two traditionally built Portuguese houses in a beautiful spot overlooking the Obidos Lagoon between the town of Caldas da Rainha and the seaside resort of Foz do Arelho.

    I have three Springer Spaniel dogs and two Lusitano horses at home and work part time as an equestrian professional writing articles for a Portuguese magazine and training young horses and horsemen. We have a large garden with fruit trees and veg a patch which I try to keep organic which I would love to be better tended.

    Old properties always require maintenance and help with that would be appreciated.

    I ONLY TAKE LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS WITHIN THE NEXT 4 WEEKS AS I TRAVEL AWAY WITH MY WORK AND ONLY KNOW ABOUT A MONTH AHEAD WHEN I WILL BE AT HOME. PLEASE BE SPECIFIC ABOUT WHAT DATES YOU WANT TO COME HAVING FIRST LOOKED AT MY CALENDAR. IF IT IS IN RED THERE IS NO CURRENT AVAILABILITY.

    COUPLE (AS IN WILL SHARE A DOUBLE BED) NEEDED FOR AUGUST. No under 20's please. We are LBGT friendly. Well behaved dogs welcome.

    Arbeit

    Weeding, planting, general garden clearing, digging, stable/field cleaning, Competence in use of equipment such as strimmer or chainsaw useful but not essential. DIY skills inside and outside the houses. Applicants need to be self starters, willing and able to get out of bed in the mornings, not physically weak and with the ability to follow simple instructions without constant supervision. If you can't push a wheelbarrow full of horseshit and have to do weeding sitting down maybe this is not the place for you.

    The houses are rural and out of the village but not isolated. Obidos Lagoon is a magnet for birdwatchers and water sports enthusiasts. Near the house is a sailing school offering sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and other pastimes. Opportunity to learn Natural Horsemanship skills. The forests that border the lagoon are great for hiking and biking (I have two bikes). The beach at Foz do Arelho is spectacular and popular with surfers and bodyboarders. There are bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Foz do Arelho (4km). The local village is in walking distance (1km) and has bars, restaurants, a mini market and a bus to the town of Caldas da Rainha (6km). Bring mosquito repellent for your comfort at dawn and dusk in the warmer months.

    People tell me that I have a great sense of humour but it is a little dry. Most of the comments in my profile have been added due to the experience I have had with previous WW'ers

    I like vegetarian food so long as I can have meat with it. Vegans or Vegetarians are welcome but any who want to lecture me about that will get short shrift.

    NB. Alcohol is very cheap in Portugal and drugs decriminalised. I also enjoy a glass of wine but take a dim view of people who want to come here just to get smashed out of their faces on one or the other.

    Yes we have WIFI but only if you bring your own appliance to receive it with.
