    Beschreibung

    Our journey here started with a search for an adventurous, off-grid lifestyle in Portugal. A calling to escape the hustle and bustle of the city we lived in for so long. We succeeded after discovering our paradise, hidden in the hills of the Algarve’s most South-Westerly point, protected from the 24/7 noise of the mainstream civilisation.

    After 4 years of intensive work, we (Sonya & Dave) felt ready to make the next step. This meant opening our doors to let volunteers, various type of guests and local community rediscover their connection with nature and inspire them with the lessons we learned.

    We love sharing knowledge. Both Sonya and me have been entrepreneurs all our lives and we would love to share all our 7 year off grid experiences. Also we have many internationally skilled people visiting us sharing their fresh knowledge with all of the team.

    So, what are we looking for?

    First and foremost, we’re looking for social people who love being outdoors and have some passion for nature and ECO ZEN community activities. The types of skills required and the nature of projects we’re working on changes throughout the season:

    Things we need your help for:
    - Landscaping / gardening
    - Maintenance on infrastructure
    - Cleaning
    - Cooking
    - Babysitting
    - Animal care
    - Zen practices such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Martial arts etc

    And what can you expect?

    Be prepared for sometimes physical work, dirty hands and the need to find solutions in a natural, back-to-nature setting, surrounded by aromatic smells from wild lavender, eucalyptus and pine trees, birdsong, refreshing coastal winds, plenty surf opportunities, plenty of adventure and gorgeous natural swimming lakes and awesome colleagues.


    What do we ask for?

    We ask our volunteers for a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, working 5 days per week and 5 hours a day max. Working hours will vary. During your free time, you can do your own thing! Most volunteers enjoy visiting some of the many stunning beaches in the area, surfing, walking in nature and travelling around the Algarve.


    What will you eat?

    We provide a warm delicious healthy lunches 7 days per week, either prepared by the volunteers or one of us. You’ll need to prepare your own breakfast and evening meal with ingredients we provide. Any expensive/special non-vegan or exotic ingredients need to be provided by you the volunteers. Since everyone is unique, we can, of course, adapt to the situation with clear communication.


    Where will you stay?

    We currently have 5 spacious tents fully equipped, a campervan and we welcome volunteers with their own tents or vans. Those staying in our tents will likely share with one other volunteer.


    How will you get around?

    About getting back and forth between the nearest town and our remote paradise; please keep in mind, it’s a bumpy 7km hill ride! Therefore, we recommend coming by own transport is pretty handy. If you don't have such, we’re more than happy to give our volunteers a ride when we drop off/pick up our children from school or head out for other things, such as shopping and surfing.


    What else should you know?

    We are NOT a 5 star luxury resort with shiny facilities or a cool urban youth hostel. Thus, we work hard and follow our ethos of 'the luxury of having less'. Naturally, everything is clean and safe, we have limited Wi-Fi, warm running water during sunny hours, solar power and serve healthy nutritious lunches.


    Is that everything?

    Yup! If you are NON-SMOKING, like to help us and want to spend time outside surrounded by beautiful nature and positive people, we encourage motivated, active, open-minded positive volunteers to come to join our outside adventures.

    Oh, and we’d really appreciate it if you mention which things and when your interested in helping us.

    Muito Obrigado.
    Dave & Sonya
