    We are a family of 4 (parents and 9 year old twins) and live in our dream home in Lagoa in the Algarve. We are looking for a couple or single person who can help with child care, general cleaning, some gardening and construction (tree house, pond, veg bed etc)

    4 hours per day, 5 days a week in exchange for private 1 bed apartment with internet, parking, breakfasts and some evening meals. Access to swimming pool and bicycles.

  • Arbeit


    We have 2 lively 9 year old twins (a girl and a boy). They both love dancing, gymnastics, swimming, trampolining - basically anything energetic. We are lucky we have a large garden with a heated swimming pool so there is plenty of room for them to run and shout. They attend the local school and are fluent in both English & Portuguese.

    We would like our workawayer to help with general jobs around the house (cleaning, washing and maybe a meal every now and again etc) and garden (strimming, composting, tendering veg beds etc). As well as continuing with other outdoor projects like building a pond, hen house and tree house.

    During the cooler months (October - May) the help will be more outside than inside.
    In summer when it's too hot for much gardening the help will be more inside than outside.
    During school holidays more time will be spent playing with the kids and less on other stuff.

    We are happy for you to choose when to "help" your 4 hours, 5 times a week - unless of course there is specific reason (eg: before the wind gets up etc). You can be flexible and help 8 hours one day and take the next day off for example. EXCEPT every Wednesday when us (the parents) are trying to better our Portuguese and attend a night class where 3 hours of childminding (18h30-21h30) will be great.

    Occasionally (and depending on travel restrictions of course) we may spend a few days away and we would then ask our workawayer to be our house and pet-sitter. We have a very friendly medium-sized dog, 2 guinea-pigs and 3 goldfish. Plus the vegetable patch that will need keeping an eye on too.

    We believe strongly that both the host and the workawayer must enjoy their roles and strive to reach a "win/win" situation - it's the only way to keep everybody happy and we all like happy!
