We are a couple in our mid 40's, who have 5 acres of land in central Portugal. We have been here for 3 years, so still fairly new too the land and have lots to do to get it back to its former glory. Therefore, we are always grateful for some help with the projects we have, along with the constant maintenance required. Our land is a terraced valley, with a stream at the bottom and in the middle of nature, but only 5 min from a village by car. We have Lots of building projects, garden projects as we begin to put all the infrastructure in place.

Its a chance to live in Portugal as part of a small community, learn the language and be emerged in the culture of a small village. You can learn a lot about living off grid and the challenges that can bring.
Would suit individuals or couples, no special skills needed, except a bit of enthusiasm, common sense and a sense of fun.
Helping out with some big projects and also general day to day life - building, land clearing, animals, the garden etc Also everyone helps out with cooking, dishes etc
We have a caravan available for use, it is heated in winter, cool in summer. Hot and cold running water.
We have a compost toilet and solar shower (summer) indoor shower when its too cold!
Food will be provided, a lot from our own garden and drinks (not alcohol) happy for you to drink just not paying for it lol! But you can wake up every morning in the middle of nature, in our peaceful valley.
