We are looking for a self disciplined person(s) to help us give the property a deep Spring clean. There is a lot of cleaning to be done, so it will be a full time task. If a couple is interested, one can clean while the other help us with various odd jobs.
Your help will be appreciated, enthusiastic and self-aware people will be welcome to come and give us a hand in exchange for good home made food and your own room. Work Mon to Fri, 25 hrs, weekends off, but we will provide all your food for 7 days/week.
We would prefer people to stay for 1 month, but will consider shorter. Min 2 weeks.
Here at Brejo in the middle of the peaceful mountainous region of central Portugal, where we still collect spring water to drink from free public springs, bath in mineral water from the earth, swim in rivers and lakes and walk through manned forests, where you see no other person.
A 100 year old house, with some outbuildings and courtyard which has been neglected over the last 15 years. It has a lot of character and we think a very nice vibe.
We have an organic Veg garden, supplying us with plenty of fresh veggies during summer, but it is now time to do the prep work for the coming 2020 season, which means loads of weeding, laying the drip pipes and various other veg patch tasks, which we can only do if it doesnt rain. This is hard physical work.
The entire property needs a spring clean, so if anybody out there is finding cleaning therapeutic, please contact us as we will appreciate your help.
The house is isolated in a small valley and you need a car to get to the next small town (10 mins) or lake (5 mins) and surrounded by manned Eucalyptus forests. You could catch a flight to Lisbon, then a 2 hr train to Tomar, where we can pick you up by car.
Smoking only outside. We are Vegetarians and although we grow organic fruit & Veg, we cant buy it locally while ours are not grown yet.
We also use different websites where we have more positive feedback from amazing previous volunteers. Namaste.
Help around the house
We prefer to think of our helpers as visitors to long lost uncles, 😁 we want you to feel at home and share your experiences and lifestyle with us and visa versa, we love to chat about deep things in life, but when we work, we do it with equal passion and commitment.
However we work and play hard, each one on its own time.
The priority is doing the prep work in the Veg patch and giving the entire house a spring clean, but there are various little odd maintenance jobs like weeding, Lime wash some external walls,
We are NOT looking for somebody who is good at 'looking busy', we need help not actors :-)
We need to dig some trenches in the Orchard for the stream of water to run, which obviously depends on the weather conditions, but there is plenty of physical work that needs doing.
