  • Description


    We have a large site of 5 acres of countryside, a Villa where we live and an apartment for our family & friends & visitors, and a little caravan 7 km from Portimao and 11 km from Monchique.

    We are not looking for any helpers at the moment, we will put up an update when we do!
    You will stay in the one bedroom apartment next to our villa. it is lovely with a kitchen and living room, with satellite tv and free wifi and bathroom. you can use our garden and private pool. we will leave you vegeterian food in the fridge and cupboards. We ask you to be responsible to respect and look after our property and friendly black labrador dog and ginger cat. you must love animals! it is advisable to hire a car and in november its cheap to hire a car. We will skype with you to see if you are a good fit with us. we look forward to hearing from you!

    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.
