    Welcome to a beautiful freeway of natural lifestyle, Vale da Terra Project!

    We are Andi (37), Rita (39), and Matilde (12), and we have a beautiful piece of land 14 km south of Idanha-Nova, Castelo Branco district, Portugal. One of the wildest areas of this amazing country. We want to transform our farm in a place were the wildlife and nature are totally preserved, create sustainable structures for a natural living and open the space in future for guests and visitors to enjoy the silence and pleasures of this beautiful place.

    Welcome to a beautiful freeway of natural lifestyle, Vale da Terra Project!


    The first project we have is a construction of an Earthship. This type of natural building is based on tires filled with packed earth, using glass bottles in the walls, with the combination of other recycled materials. There are around 100 tires left to fill, to finish the 1st phase, then the roof have to come up, so after we can focus on the interior walls, electricity and water installation.

    We are looking for people to help with the building of the Earthship. We give preference to who may have already experience in this type of building.

    The place is very remote and semi-isolated so this is for the adventurers out there, who want
    to pass some time in deep nature, but know how to respect it as a whole.

    On a day to day base, we generally work in the mornings, giving all of us free time to enjoy the rest of the day or take care of other stuff. We look for people that can fully commit to the working time, 5hrs/day - 5 days/week, and the rest of the time we want that people have their own freedom.

    There will be plenty of time for relaxing and exploring the countryside and
    mountains, national parks are not far away and make great hiking breaks. We have also 2 big lakes around, 20min driving away from the land. We are also very close to the highest mountain in Portugal, Serra da Estrela.

    We offer:

    - Breakfast and lunch: we prepare from Monday to Friday (vegetarian/non vegetarian food)
    - Dinner: can be prepared together as a group
    - A place to camp in our actual farm (not the place of work, but also a beautiful farm very close by - you can count with a camp place beneath the stars with nearly no light polution!)
    - Tent with confortable beding
    - Shower
    - Use of the family kitchen
    - Free internet access
    - Transportation from the main city to our place on arrival, departure and once a week for shopping
    - A good experience in a beautiful space, beautiful landscapes and a good vibe!

    We can't offer:

    - Food on sundays: everyone must take care of their own selves
    - Rooms in the house (the sleeping is in camping mode)
    - Transport in any time or day to the village: we will arrange it once a week, but we cant be available to transport you on a daily base

    We look for people with the following profile:

    - Friendly and Positive attitude
    - Passionate about nature and ready to live an experience of working and living among nature
    - Previous experience in Natural Building, if in Earthships construction, better
    - English speaking

    We will not be able to say yes to:

    - Dogs or any animals (we love them, and we have already 4dogs, 2 cats and sheep - we can´t have more that the actual resident tribe!)
    - Party all the time people: we enjoy a beer in the end of the day, a glass of wine here and there, good music, but if you come with the intention of getting high and crazy all the time, this is not the place for you :)
    - Any drugs in the place

    Communitary Responsibility:

    - Washing dishes and kitchen cleaning at night is a task of all
    - The bathroom/toilet available in the accommodation is a shared space with the family house. You must extra-care about the cleaning.
    - As we will be sharing our private spaces with you, we ask for the total respect for the space, people and animals of the farm.
    - Sleeping periods and silence must be respected
    - If you smoke, make sure you don't throw any cig leftovers anywhere apart of the ashtray
    - Any kind of fire or outside cooking is NOT allowed. Fire risk in the area is huge.


    When this will happen?

    - We start in August 2019, and from there on until the end of September we will be full-on.
    - Minimum stay is one week, from sunday to sunday.

    If you want to help us in this mission you are very welcome!

    Thanks for looking on our profile and hope to hear from you soon!
