***looking for someone to house sit for the beginning of October***
We are a young couple trying to lead healthier and as sustainable life as possible at THIS moment, learning something new with every day. We love everything that grows, taking care of animals and coming up with new ideas to create a better, more cozy, more convenient place to live in and trying to grow anything from the seed, and most important, trying to improve every inch of the soil. There is always a lot to do not even mentioning the up coming projects and the ones that were left aside...That´s why it would be pretty amazing to have some help over here and in the end of the day to share that nice feeling of accomplishment :) .
The farm it's just about 1 ha but has a bit of everything: olive trees, vineyard, and some fruit trees (most of them cherries), some berry bushes, vegetable garden to have our organic veggies, herbs on every corner :) , chickens for eggs (also hatching our own), 2 dogs, 2 cats and of course lots of flowers! Also, time to time we are going to the family farm to help with the thing over there.

We will take care of garden and animals together, do some social work in eco markets, make soaps and natural cosmetics, collect seeds, herbs and other material which can be used for infusions, learn about olive oil extraction (in November one can see the process for fruit on the tree till final product) and much more.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
We are flexible with help, cause there are all sorts of things to do here depending on season. Planting and pruning mostly in the spring, collecting olives/grapes in the autumn, in the winter months the vegetable garden is being started and needs attention all year long, wood cutting, helping to build /rebuild or esthetic finish, even giving a bath for a dog or helping to shave it. We would like to make some peaces of pallet furniture, so person with experience on this and patience to teach would be really great. Also we like to upcycle stuff, so you are welcome to join these little projects. Last but not least, it would be nice to share the house keeping. More hands - faster it´s done. You do not need to be good at all of these things - any kind of help will be appreciated as long as it´s given with joy!

You are welcome to stay in our house, which has a guest room. We'll share kitchen and hopefully share cooking as well ( one way get to know the different culture, isn´t it? :) ) If you need more space or a bigger group is coming there is always a possibility to put a tent for camping.
The farm is 10 min. away from Covilhã, around 30min. away from Serra da Estrela. There you can have a swim in heavenly places during the summer and winter season offers possibility to ski. On your free time it's worth it to trip around the area because it has lots to offer from museums till ancient stony villages.
In May small towns around start the time of Feiras (fairs) and Festas (festivals)! Since then till mid autumn every weekend you can go to celebrate and enjoy yourself in a different place.
By the way there is a bus stop very close to the house, so even without a car there is no problem to go out on your own.
