  • Beschreibung


    We are a British, English speaking couple living in rural central Portugal. Very beautiful mountain landscapes.
    Its a small and friendly village 15k from the town of Serta.
    We have 7 acres of terraced land and out buildings which we are restoring.
    The beautiful river Zezere and the barragem Cabril are just 5 minutes away. Here you can swim, kayak, picnic etc.
    So we are looking for some help including stone walling and repairs, general up keep or terraces and land assistance with renovations (some muscle will be required.)
    We are friendly and sociable with a positive attitude.
    We have 2 cats who are also friendly and sociable....most of the time.
    We can offer accommodation or land to park and meals in return for 5 hrs help per day 4-5 days a week. The rest you can relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
    We also now have a swimming pool which you are welcome to share the use of.

    As we have only been here a year we are still leaning ourselves about tending to the many grape vines and olive trees on the land. We would like to share this experience with others.
    As for the restoration of the out buildings, I am a qualified carpenter and have worked in the building industry in the UK for 30 years, and have experience in all aspects.
    I would work closely with our guest and share my knowledge and experiences.
    Some specific tasks will include would be help with all aspects of the building works, and assistance maintaining our land.
    Sue has a dedicated art/craft area , creating various objects to adorn our home. e.g painting old roof tiles, stained glass windows and anything else she can find. You are welcome to come and create.
    We are a very outgoing and sociable couple and would welcome you join our social life and adventures here in the most beautiful surroundings.
