    Beschreibung

    My husband & I moved to the Algarve in October 2016 and have absolutely fallen in love with our new home country and our home which comes with 5 acres of land and sits behind a mountain (well officially a hill ;-) )! We run a dog sanctuary consisting of nearly 30 rescue dogs that keep us busy and entertained! They all live in our house with their own entrances to outdoor space.
    We love the workaway scheme which enables us to meet some truly amazing people and to learn about different cultures and experiences. We think we offer a great place to stay in beautiful surroundings where hopefully you'll find value in the work you do whilst enjoying time out! The accommodation is private - a charming detached annexe with two very comfortable single beds away from the house with private bathroom.
    Please feel free to contact us - we always reply even if we are unable to host you at that time :-)

    We live in the countryside in a mountainous area of the Algarve. From our experience not many tourists visit the area so you would be able to experience an authentic Portuguese lifestyle within the local community.
    For anyone wanting to gain experience of working with dogs.

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    Ideally we would like a couple, one of whom can work the land and the other who is able to help with caring for our dogs. We are happy for you to work the same hours so that you have time off together. Work includes:
    - Olive, Almond and Carob harvesting
    - Clearing weeds, undergrowth and trimming back trees
    - Fencing
    - Outwitting our clever dogs finding escape paths ;-)
    - General maintenance such painting external walls
    - Help with daily food preparation and cooking - either for humans or dogs!
    - Maybe some help trying to keep house clean-ish
    And the best bit ... giving the dogs lots of TLC if of course you love dogs as much as we do!

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    Self contained, detached annexe which has a bedroom with two single beds and a shower room.
    For breakfast and lunch we provide food items which you can prepare in the annexe. There is a kettle, toaster, electric hob and fridge in the room. In the evening I or we or you (!) prepare dinner and we eat together outside or inside depending on the weather. As I lack imagination if you're vegan or vegetarian I ask you to cook the evening meals (the main kitchen is all yours) for all of us.

    In your time off you would be welcome to spend time enjoying the land and beautiful views. You are welcome to use the pool during your stay and come out with us when we are out and about. We also have a couple of bikes you can use during your stay.
    You can also visit the local villages and towns embracing the local culture and community. The town of Sao Bras De Alportel is a beautiful mix of old and new and has most the facilities you could want and we go in about 3/4 times a week (10 mins by car). In Estoi you can enjoy the traditional culture of drinking coffee with the locals in the cafes on the numerous quaint squares. Azinheiro itself has a café/bar/restaurant about 1km from us. For everything else is about a 30 minute drive away and we generally go to Faro once every couple of weeks. The beautiful seaside town of Fuesta is a 20 minute drive away with its sandy beach and clear blue sea and amazing fish BBQ's and vegan restaurant.
    In the UK we hosted Norwegian students as part of family which we enjoyed immensely. Whoever visits our home needs to love dogs with some understanding of rescue dogs. We are pretty flexible, easy to get on with and happy to help wherever we can.
