We live in a beautiful quinta in the algarve countryside, with about 8 acres of gardens and paddocks, and a pool. We have 3 dogs of our own, and sometimes a few friends dogs in the garden. I have 3 beautiful gentle horses, who we ride often. I am 56, and English, and my husband is 72 and Irish. My goodness, that sounds old and we are NOT old

Help around the house
You can learn about animal care, horse riding, driving the quad or the Land Rover, maintainance of a large property with many olive, carob, fig, almond trees.
We are looking for a mature couple, To help with cutting back our garden, ( being able to handle a chain saw would be very helpful) and occasionally helping to look after the animals. A love of the outdoors and animals is a must ! You must be able to look after yourselves in the kitchen as we are often not around at mealtimes.
We have a self contained annex available, with queen size bedroom, lounge, bathroom and kitchen, Wi fi and English TV.
We live in the countryside, an oasis of calm, but only 10 minutes to the village , Guia, which has many bars and restaurants, shops and a post office. A jeep is available to you, as are bikes. We have a lovely pool, and the beaches are 15 mins drive away, or a 40 minute cycle. You must be confident and self sufficient, and happy to cook for yourselves. Sometimes I will cook for everyone, I love it, and used to be a chef!
I run a small kennels and cattery, but the workaways are not expected to help in any way in this venture.
