    Beschreibung

    Currently looking for a couple (or single) during August/September 2020 to help us with our regular summer chores, especially gardening, watering of the gardens & young trees, mowing and cleaning of our ecological pool

    We are Marga and Jurrie, a Dutch couple who moved to Portugal eleven years ago to start a living over here in order to increase our quality of life. We are active host for volunteers during winter months and spring. In a beautiful part of central Portugal we own and run a small scale holiday resort set in 8 hectares of it's own grounds. The resort is open all year round.

    All construction works, cleaning of the villa's when change overs, land management with potentially dangerous machineries like tractors, chain saws etc are exclusivey done by local profesionals we have contracted. Workaway volunteers are welcome in summer to give an extra hand with some adititional chores.

    We consider ourselves as very down to earth and open minded people, we love to work hard (if necessary) and we love to end the day with a good meal and a good glass of wine as well. We consider Workaway as a social, intercultural exchange program where people of all ages from all over the word are welcome to spend some time in this nice area of Portugal.

    You have to be aware of the fact that we live in a quiet and relatively remote area. Therefore we prefer to host a couple or two friends for a minimal period of 3/4 weeks.

    We will keep in mind that you also will be here to discover Portugal and therefore we will fully respect the agreement to work 5 days a week/25 effective hours a week. We are open to approach this on a very flexible way, so that you also will have sufficient time to plan some more day trips/long weekends to explore the country.

    Nearest cities are Oliveira do Hospital and Tábua, both on a 8 kilometers distance. Covas is centrally situated in the Dão-region, a big area that is enclosed bij the Serra Estrela in the East (25 km), the Serra Açor in the South (20 km) and the Serra de Caramulo in the West (30 km). The area is also dominated by two rivers, the Rio Mondego and the Rio Alva.
