  • Description



    Olá! We are Lois, Max and little Fauna (born Jan 2020) and we are seeking a person, or a couple, to come and help us out with our daily tasks!
    Me (Lois) spent 2 years travelling Europe in my campervan, volunteering on farms before settling here on my own farm in Portugal.

    We are nestled in the beautiful rolling countryside just between the city of Castelo Branco & Fundao.
    We are completely off grid and keep a number of different animals, goats, chickens, ducks and 4 cats.

    Our routine is dictated by the season and the animals, but generally we are looking for 5 hours of help a day, for 5 days a week.

    We will provide food items for breakfast for you to enjoy in the van, and we will have lunch and evening meal together, with at least one hot cooked meal a day.

    We are looking for people with enthusiasm towards living simply, a good sense of humor and a love of nature and animals!
    An understanding of spoken English is required. We would love to improve our Portuguese if you're a native speaker.
    For further details and questions, you are more then welcome to contact us.
