  • Description


    We live on a small hold just outside the town of Praia da Luz! And we also have a few horses who are just coming to the age where they need to be worked, it would be great if we could have some experienced horse workers to help me with all the tasks that arise from having so many animals.
    We also have two apartments on the land so during the rental season we will also need help with cleaning them, but it is more important that we have experienced worked to help us on the land.
    As we have a farm, there is also, always, general maintenance to do, such as fencing, planting, clearing land, etc.
