  • Description


    Hey, I'm Rupert, from Cambridge UK, now living in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

    I recently have bought an absolute wreck of a property which I would love some help with.

    I'm working on this place myself and the location is absolutely magical!

    If you want to be part of a great story/adventure then come join us for as long as you like. :)

    This is property is for private use and not a business.

    We need help renovating this incredible palace (see the photo) that we have bought. It's a wreck at the moment, and thus we need to bring this old beauty back to life! There's gardening, painting, and just generally helping out with the refurbishment. Me and the family will be there every day leading the charge and making sure everyone gets fed watered and is safe and sound.
