Hi, I am Mandy and English and my husband is Philippe and he is Dutch, we have been in Portugal for over 25 years. We have had a great summers for the last 4 years with our workaways here in Portugal, So we would like to do it again. We love to socialise and meet new people from all over the world.
Philippe is a landscape gardener & I am a property manager, We have just moved house, the outside is a blank canvas so we need help to make it into a lovely outside space. Planting trees and plants and getting ready so we can put all our Buddhas in their new spots.
So we would like people who are all-rounders and can turn their hands to anything, some experience with gardening would be useful.... Handy with a paintbrush, and enjoys working outside.
Due to my cancer treatment, I cannot work as much as I need to, hence why we need extra help, Philippe cannot run 2 business's all by himself and take care of me.
We have a very calm approach to life and business. Our home is very tranquil, in a wonderful area of Portugal. We are Buddhists and so we kindly ask that you respect this if you decide to choose us.
So if you are fun and energetic and up for a new challenge, we look forward to hearing from you :o)

We both love to meet new people our home used to be a guesthouse so we are used to having people come and stay. We are English & Dutch so not a typical household in Portugal... We love all things oriental/Asian and our home is a true reflection of that.
Things are still in the planning stage outside with the new garden etc, but we are hoping to change that with your helpr. So we would like to finish off the garden areas and put in a new living wall.. The hot tub area needs a new coat of paint too.
It is very important that you can cook and also drive. This will make life more flexible for you, as there are often times when there is no work so you will have plenty of time to go out and about and explore and have your own time. We do not want this to be all work and no enjoyment.
So lots of great things to do :) throughout our year.
People have asked why we are looking into volunteers, and I was unsure whether to put this on our page but it is best just to put it out there, I have terminal cancer and get tired very quickly so I cannot work as much as I used to, so we thought we would give it a try. So far it has been great and our volunteers have really helped us.
Plus it is such a beautiful area and we are so fortunate to live here, we think it is so nice to share it with others.
You would have your own double bedroom with wifi. There is also plenty of outside space so if you want to pitch a tent or a camper you would be most welcome. Our new home is shaping up nicely, very comfy all on one level, during the summer we spend most of our time outside.
The area is beautiful and close to some amazing beaches, close to Palmela, Setubal, and Lisbon is only 30 minutes always, so plenty of places to go and explore and enjoy your time.
We both love to meet new people we used to run a guesthouse so we are used to having people come and stay.
We look forward to meeting you.
