    Good Host
This listing is a Last minute host. They have let us know that they are looking for help immediately as well as at other times of the year.

 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description



    We are Elli (44 years) ,Valentin (7 years ) and Yuna (1year). We live on a beautiful hilltop close to Aljezur and we always need some helping hands in exchange for a nice place to stay, fresh healthy food and sauna on cold evenings.

    At the moment we could do with some help in the garden, with small building jobs, also with cooking and general maintance. I would love to host somebody who has experience in carpentry or similar and who is skilled to work with tools.
    We have a nice caravan you can stay in. Normally we share lunch , and breakfast, while dinners we do separately, as I need some family time with the kids
    Normally we do 3-4 hours of work

    Nice views all around and the beach is about 10km away. You can borrow my bike and I am happy giving you lifts wherever I need to go;)

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    What else ...

    Aljezur is 5km away. We frequently go there by car and can offer rides. We also have good bikes and are happy to borrow them. Beaches (Monte Clerigo, Ariffana, Amoreira) are all around 12km away. The Cerca Valley is pretty alive so you always will find a lift with people living around here.
