  • Description


    We are a family from Wales who moved to Portugal last year to choose a life in the sunshine and beauty of the Algarve. We are walking distance to a great clifftop trail, and 15 minutes walk to a beautiful sandy beach. Approximately 1 hour from Faro airport, we are situated right in the South Western corner of Europe with sunshine around 300 days out of the year.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our house is situated in a great location, and you could get by without a car ( we have bikes you can use if you wish). If you surf, there are loads of surfing beaches nearby, and we have a few surfboards you can borrow if you like. We would be more than happy to take you surfing, and teach you to surf if you wish - we try to go to the beach as often as possible!

    As part of the exchange you will be able to integrate with our family as much (or as little) as you like. We speak English as a mother tongue, but we are all learning Portuguese so it would be fun to have dinner in only Portuguese for instance.

    We try to practice yoga most days, and as a trained yoga teacher, Dan (Danielle) would be happy to teach you (if you need teaching that is!).

    We can come to some arrangement over how often you would like to eat with us, we tend to cook in the house most days and perhaps once a week head out to dinner (which you are of course welcome to join in with).

    We look forward to welcoming you into our family.

    As a family we are all learning Portuguese (kids learn in Portuguese in their Steiner school) but our classes (and school) is off for Summer break. We would like someone to help us learn Portuguese for perhaps 1 hour per day for the kids, and 1 hour per day for the adults during the week. No lessons on weekends.
