  • Description


    March/April looking for help!

    We have a large site of 5 acres of countryside, a Villa where we live and an apartment, and cottage and a little caravan 7 km from Portimao and 11 km from Monchique.

    From March and April we need help doing gardening, maintenance & repair fences/structures, painting buildings.

    You will stay in the caravan, There is a double bed, and a heater inside and Tv with videos. There is also Wifi onsite for your laptop or phones. But if you have a campervan you can stay in there we have space on site. You can use the shower block (hot shower) and toilet and a Camp kitchen to make your food. We will leave you vegetarian food in the fridge and cupboards.

    There is a local bus service at the end of the track to Portimao on the coast with great beaches, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops etc and to the lovely green mountains of the old town of Monchique. A taxi will cost between €12-18. We have local restaurants nearby within a 10 to 15 minute walk. We do advise hiring a car if you can November is cheap to hire cars in Portugal.

    We ask that you have your own health insurance and give us a contact number of your next of kin in case of any emergencies. We only usually like to accept helpers who are willing to stay a minimum 2 of 3 weeks.

    So if you are interested in spending some time with us, able to commit to the dates you can come, and want to have fun in the sun, in a cool, chilled out environment, can smile often and laugh lots then contact us. We have a strict no drugs policy and people who have problems with alcohol please do not come to us. Smoking is strictly outside only. We encourage a healthy, laid back vibe.. we are not a party animal kind of place.
