    Description

    Hello everybody,

    So my place is a quiet place in a wild natural environment .

    For summer 21 most of the work is light forestry and mud building.
    Im easy going and people can do what they are good at, for a big part of the time... sometimes some things just have to be done.
    I got a fully equipped caravan with an outdoor kitchen, dry toilet and a hang bucket shower.

    The place is for people who enjoy silence and know how to be alone.. some night we go out to meet with the neighbors and play music, but some nights can be very quiet.
    If a party place full of other volunteers is what you look for- this is probably isnt the place for you.

    Feel free to contact and ask me about anything

    Good luck

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange - could pretty much be anything.
    We play alot of music, and we are people from all over the world in the area.. so if culture is your cup of tea - there is alot of it around here.
    The land is located on the rota Vicentina, and inside the natural park of the costa Vicentina. Unique nature and beautiful walking tracks.

    A small garden-farm project with a donkey, chickens and some natural building projects going on.
    The work depends on the season - sometimes its mostly gardening and sometimes mostly building with mud.
    Donkey always likes attention and care

    Accommodation

    Have a caravan and a mud igloo on the land..

    About foods- we can decide together what works best for us - as for me normally during the summer i mostly eat fruit and my big meal would be only after sunset - so maybe it dosent work the same for anybody. Im a vegetarian - and as i dont have a problem if someone chooses to eat meat- if you are into bbq-ing every other meal - maybe better find another place.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area is amazing with loads of nice things to do - there is alot of other projects around, there is the Mira river in a walking distance, beach is about 20km away, amazing tracks in the park and the rota Vicentina, and an amazingly authentic Portuguese village with nice friendly farmers :)
