Geforderte Mindest-Aufenthaltsdauer: mindestens 2 Wochen
We are kika, Nuno, Sebastião (13) and Alma (8), Mel and Tobias (the dogs) and Chiquita (the cat that is pregnant now so there will be a lot of kitties in this spring).
In 2023 i would like to take extra care of the veggie garden and need some construction and painting works in the house, if you have skills in this areas, please visit us :)
I also need help with the daily life, cooking, cleanning, playing with the kids...
We live in a small house, 15 min walking from the sea, in sintra. The way to the sea is up and down the hill, please check google maps if thinking about goind there with your long surf board.
Fontanelas is not Lisbon and not close to Lisbon. It can take 2 hours to arrive to Lisbon by bus + train. In a day with good bus connection, you will need a 45 minutes ride in a bus (3,30€ each way) to arrive to Sintra city centre plus 30 minutes by train (1,44€) to arrive to Lisbon.
There is no nigthlife in or around our village.
We have a surf achool nearby @ 25 euros per class and they pick you at home and take you to diferent beaches .
We live a very modest life and the persons coming to live with us must be frugal and adapt to a shared space, just one bathroom, small kitchen...
The sleeping space we offer is one room, couple bed, closet and window.
We don't smoke and can't have smokers in the house and garden.
Our oldest loves gaming, science and maths, bikes, rocks, cars, engines, any skills in this area are welcome.
The baby girl is a dancer, likes swiming, roller skates, all things movement related as well as make up, dress up, painting, drawing, baking, making slime, everything crafts related.
Only one vegetarian in the house, no restrictions on sugar and no restrictions on media usage (screans are not a problem here). Please, be ready to be surprised on this matters. A bit of reading on sandradodd.com unschooling website migth help to get us better.
It is very important that the persons coming to our house like children and can make a connection with our kids. If that does not happen, we will ask you to leave. You will need to connect at least with one of the kids, in one of their interests.
We prefer to receive people that are already in Portugal or that will travel in portugal anyways, can't have tbe responsabilité of hosting someone who arrives and doesn't like it but as to stay until their fligth back.
We like to show our village by bicycle, to show around the beaches and castles of Sintra by car (at least the free ones).
We can give a ride to the train station to facilitate the commuting.
We need to keep cooking in a budget to be able to receive workawayers. Please remember to bring pocket money for your personnal purcases.
We need proactive people. I lack the sprit to go around telling people what to do.
Thank you for reading our message until the end :)

Project developement with the kids and baby sitting (please, interact with them and propose things to do, don't let them alone with their phones or computer all the time.)
We are an unschooling family - no school for the kids and no curriculum at home - so our life is 24h a day with our children. Among all their activities and learning experiences we have no time left for tasks like:
- go out with the kids and build steuctures the woods;
- walk the dogs
- take care of the small veggie garden;
- paint walls
- house cleaning
- do the dishes
- take out the garbage
- hang clothes to dry
- wash the car
We also need help on our outings, namely to go to museums, parks, the sea with the 2 kids. Whathever we visit, you can visit too.
We need help to develop their projects and interests, namely:
- gaming - WII, Roblox and minecraft;
- roll playing with puppets or shadows...
- ride the bycicle, skate, rollers
- LEGO building
- science projects
.... Something new that can be interesting... The kids are open to new projects and ideas, if you do something you love they will like to learn it. Or, sometimes, they just want someone to sit next to them with YouTube videos.
You can choose the work is what suits you the best, we have so much to do in one day that all the help is very welcome.
5 hours a day seams a fair amount of time to help out, it can be less or more, we really appretiate more the company than amount of the work donne.
I also manage a tourist/ student house in Lisbon and any help with that will be very welcome.
We really, really need help cooking in a low budget and it is very important to keep the lights off and have fast showers, we need to save a lot in this phase of our life.
