    Description

    Hello, I am Ben. On have a small country-estate 3 km from the Atlantic coast near Sintra,Portugal, I rent 8 selfcatering units to tourists. Big wild romantic garden, swimmingpool, animals. I live here with my boyfriend Manuel ( ..& 2 dogs&6 cats...) but he has a job somewhere else during the day. Most of the things I do alone, for several tasks I work with locals (cleaning, garden-help etc.). But it means that I am quite house-bound and leaving the place is difficult, even for shopping. Somebody here so that I can go out to do things would be a big releaf. Thats why I am looking for help during the months june-september. Our guests are from all kind of nationalities. Mostly families with kids.
