We are Pedro and Maria
Our oldest daughter is a workawayer too. So We thought it would be a good idea to be a host.
We are a portuguese family. We are simple and easygoing and living in a nice place.
We have two daughters, both studying in Lisbon and they may come sometimes in the weekends.
We prefer couple accounts: Two girls, a couple or two boys. We live in the countryside and our experience tells us that a person, alone, has some difficulty being more independent.
Usualy we do not host for more than one week ;-)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
The work you'll be doing is pretty simple:
Some help in the garden and in the house, we have some vegetables and fruit trees in the garden that need to be taken care too.
Maybe some painting.
We also have a small house next to ours that we rent out, so if there are guests arriving or leaving you may help in the cleaning of that house too...
And so on.
Portuguese, English, French and some Italian
You'll stay in a nice room in the house, only for yourself.
The wc is shared with our daughters and and friends if we have some visitors.
All the meals will be provided, we aren't vegetarian but if you are it will be fine too.
We provide towels and you can wash your clothes in the whashing machine.
The house is in Vila Nova de Milfontes, located in a natural park called SW Alentejano, the best preserved coastal area of southern Europe .
It is in a quite and peaceful place from 3km to the coast so it will be easy to go there and even in the winter the beach and the coast are very very beautiful.
There are also a bike that you can use.
To get there you can drive or take the bus.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
