    Hi there!

    We are Annemiek, Martijn and baby daughter Nelli, a family from the Netherlands that moved to Portugal two years ago to start a new, more quiet life in the countryside surrounded by nature. To pursue this dream we are renovating a beautiful old Quinta (Portugese farm) and have the plan to set up a huge vegetable garden for the future. The idea of the project is to create an ecological place where we can live as self sufficiently as possible and more in line with nature. We are into permaculture and want to apply the principles to our land in future projects.

    The quinta used to be a farm with a lot of forrest and agricultural land surrounding it. It has an idillic river and an old mill, which was used to grind the wheats with back in the day. It has several old buildings on the property that had different purposes. One being a bakery and another being a primary school for instance. It's a beautiful green area with rivers, waterfalls, lots of hiking trails - one even starting on our land - and a long cycling path leading to the coast and to the city of Viseu. We are located close to the town of Oliveira de Frades and are 40 mins away from the beach and one hour from Porto.

    Currently the main focus is renovating the big old house and hopefully starting with our garden soon. We are now about halfway in the process of the house, and can live in it quite comfortably already. But of course, there is still much more to be done to the house and on the land!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    At the Quinta we can offer learning how to renovate an old house, how to build, how to do things on the land and how it is to live in the countryside. We have a lot of things to do in and around the house, but we firmly believe that life should be about fun and feeling well. What we are seeking is not just a volunteer to help us with the work, but to have an exchange of experiences and good conversations. We value to respect and take good care of each other. Other than that, Martijn is a Dutch language teacher so if you are interested in learning some Dutch he is perfectly happy to teach you some!

    Unterkunft

    In exchange for 5 hours of help per day, 5 days a week, we can offer three daily meals and a spacious private bedroom on the top floor of our house with your own lounge area to chill. This space can host one person or a couple as it has a double bed. We will be living in the house together and will be using the same facilities. We both enjoy spending time in the kitchen and are happy to provide three comforting meals a day that we can enjoy together. But of course, if you need a little me-time you can always retreat upstairs.

    It's a beautiful green area with rivers, waterfalls, lots of hiking trails - one even starting on our land - and a long cycling path leading to the coast and to the city of Viseu. We often take hikes with our dog, which you are of course welcome to join us in! Also, Martijn loves surfing, so if you're into it as well, he's happy to take you with him.

    We are located close to the town of Oliveira de Frades and are 40 mins away from the beach and one hour from Porto.

    To get here by public transport you would have to take a bus from either Viseu or Aveiro to Oliveira de Frades, where we can pick you up!
