    If you want to spend some time on a small farm with a spiritual background ( ZEN ) you are mostly welcome by Emilia Carl and Annette. We live in beautiful nature, 8 Km from the atlantic ocean (southcoast) and 1 Km from a fantastic, colorful, multiculti little village, called Barão de São João. Annette´s main work is growing chilis. At the moment we have 25 diff. varieties of chilis from all over the world. We do oil, powder, pastes, remedies etc. All organic. Annette is selling the products on the local farmer market in Lagos. Byside the chilis we grow vegetables and we do our own vine. You would stay in a nice big caravan with an seperate kitchen and dining area. Warm shower with a great view and a compost toilet outside. We have two sympatic dogs and cats and some chickens. Carl is a Tai Ji teacher and you would have the possibility to practice with him. We like to share our place with you and it would be great receving your helping hands.
    (4-5 working hours per day, weekend free)
