  • Description


    We are Gijs, Linda and run a rustic lodge and camping business in Central Portugal where you will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of running a small rural resort, located 9 kms from the historic city of Tomar and one hours drive from Lisbon.

    We are looking for some super workaway type help from mid October through to end of November with our Olive Harvest. We need fit and enthusiastic fun loving individuals who would like to experience the process that takes ripe olives from the tree through to bottled olive oil !

    The only equipment you will need are a pair of gloves and a small saw ( provided by us) a big hat for sun protection and good working shoes or boots ! You will have energetic working days when the weather allows and days off (to explore our wonderful World Heritage town of Tomar) if it is rainy weather and you can look forward to tasty convivial suppers with delicious local Portuguese wine in the evening with your fellow workers.

    Accommodation is in our super cosy scandinavian chalets with private kitchen and bathrooms and the chalets also have heating, internet and television !!

    Hope to hear from you soon :-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ideally travellers will have a car or their own campervan which will leave them free to explore this area and surrounds in their days off. Otherwise there is a bus service from this village in the weekdays to the town of Tomar which has all the facilities and attractions of a World Heritage city. The Lake Zezere is on our doorstep which is a great bathing and beauty spot and further afield on the coast are wonderful surfing opportunities.
