    We have to finish removing loads of old hand made glass from the conservatory and replace them with modern glass after we clean & paint the metal framework.

    We need to build some natural stone retaining walls and raised flower beds, Lime-wash the garden walls.

    Any help appreciated, enthusiastic and self-motivated will be welcome to come and give us a hand in exchange for good home made food and your own room. Work Mon to Fri, 25 hrs, weekends off, but we will provide all your food for 7 days/week.

    We would prefer people to stay for 1 month, but will consider shorter. Min 2 weeks.

    Here at Brejo in the middle of the peaceful mountainous region of central Portugal, where we still collect spring water to drink from free public springs, bath in mineral water from the earth, swim in rivers and lakes and walk through manned forests, where you see no other person.

    A 100 year old house, with some outbuildings and courtyard which has been neglected over the last 15 years. It has a lot of character and we think a very nice vibe.

    We have an organic Veg garden, supplying us with plenty of fresh veggies during summer. 5 Orange trees, Grapes and pear trees supply us with plenty of fruit at the end of summer, while the new trees we just planted are still growing.

    The house is isolated in a small valley and you need a car to get to the next small town (10 mins) or lake (5 mins) and surrounded by manned Eucalyptus forests. You could catch a flight to Lisbon, then a 2 hr train to Tomar, where we can pick you up by car.

    Although we don't see ourselves as part of the eco-tourism, but rather as a part of our daily lifestyle to look after the environment and our impact on it here at the retreat centre in rural central Portugal. We grow organic vegetables, herbs and fruit, which is not only a practice, but defines and influence our complete lifestyle. Therefore we do as much as we can to limit our impact on the environment.

    We also use different websites where we have more positive feedback.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We prefer to think of our helpers as visitors to long lost uncles, 😁 we want you to feel at home and share your experiences and lifestyle with us and visa versa, we love to chat about big and small things in life, but when we work, we do it with equal passion and commitment.
    However we work and play hard, each on on its own time.

    We need to dig some trenches in the Orchard for the stream of water to run, which obviously depends on the weather conditions, but there is plenty of physical work that needs doing.

    A 100 year old Manor house, with some outbuildings and courtyard which has been neglected over the last 15 years. It has a lot of character and we think a very nice vibe. All rooms on 1st floor are en-suite, but are used for guests during the retreat season ( May till September)
    We have an organic Veg garden, supplying us with plenty of fresh veggies during summer.
    Grapes, Orange and pear trees supply us with plenty of fruit at the end of summer, while the new trees we just planted are still growing.

    Smoking only outside the house/buildings.

    We are located on a farm. You would need a car to reach any shops. There is a hamlet of houses on top of the hill, but they have no shops or bars. Nearest small town is 10km away. A casual walk to the lake is 40 mins each way. We have push bikes, but please note we live in the mountainous region of central Portugal, so you either go up or down. You are obviously welcome to join us when we go shopping.
