I live with my family in a tiny village in the mountains of the Serra do Acor in Central Portugal where there is plenty of land, water, sun and work to be done.
I moved on to the land in 2011 and I am in the process of setting up a productive and well functioning farm.

Help in the house
Volunteers could expect to be helping in any of the areas specified, there is constantly work to be done so a general skill base and a willingness to get involved would be necessary

My land is in the Vale do Ceira which is remote, dramatic and full of rivers and trees. There are many beautiful places to swim, fish or go walking and various social events happening in the surrounding areas. There are some local bus services and I normally go to one of the larger towns once a week but having your own transport would be helpful if you want to see more of the area.
