    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in a lovely rural area with beautiful countryside and offer a farming way of life, with a large veg plot, animals and a horse feed business. There is always gardening and maintenance work to be done and sometimes we landscape or build other projects. There is tractor driving, fork lift work and digger driving for those that can drive these vehicles. We can teach you to drive the tractor! Yoga classes are available in Ourique and volunteers can learn to knit or crochet too!

    We are looking for 2 people with previous horse experience to look after our horses for a month from the last week of February. Training can be given to drive a tractor for feeding. We are happy to pay a wage to the right people.

    For riders you can always take a horse out on a hack or there are miles of tracks for cycling, walking and bird watching. Locally we are close to part of the Rio Mira and also to Ourique, our nearest town where there is a good supermarket, cafés, restaurants and most necessary facilities. It is only 50 min drive to the coast either west, which is beautiful or south which is more touristy.
    Travellers will need to hold a driving licence so they can get to the local shops 10km away.
    We are an hour from Faro airport.
