  • Beschreibung


    Winter on the quinta, is a really busy time, the garden needs preparing for spring, wood prep for fire wood for the rest of the winter fires, some small building work we need help with, along with all the usual things this time of year, land clearing, grass mowing, wood cutting. Absolutely No skills necessary for any of this, just keen people, happy to help out.

    We are a couple in our mid 40's, who have 5 acres of land in central Portugal. We have been here for 4 years, so still quite new too the land and have lots to do to get it back to its former glory. We also were in the middle of the fires of 2022 which caused a lot of devastation and damage. Therefore, we are always grateful for some help with the projects we have, along with the constant maintenance required. Our land is a terraced valley, with a stream at the bottom and in the middle of nature, but only 5 min from a village by car. We have Lots of building projects, garden projects as we begin to put all the infrastructure in place.

    We are also looking for people who actually want to be here and experience this life style and be part of what we are doing, longer term would be preferred (ie more than a week). We want you to become part of the family.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Its a chance to live in Portugal as part of a small community, learn the language and be emerged in the culture of a small village. You can learn a lot about living off grid and the challenges that can bring.

    Would suit individuals / couples / friends, no special skills needed, except enthusiasm, common sense and a sense of fun. The ability to communicate basically in English is a must, it is too hard to constantly have to translate and a lot gets lost in translation.
    Its our home, our lives and our family so a desire to be here and be part of it. Helping out with some big projects and also general day to day life - building, land clearing, animals, the garden etc.
    Also everyone helps out with cooking, dishes etc

    Plenty of space, we are down a bumpy track so some ground clearance and nothing over 6-7m long as the track gets too narrow
