I'm Resa from the Netherlands. I have a farmhouse in the middle of the rustic village of Faia. This is located on the Mondego River and adjacent to the Serra de Estrella and also lies close to the lively city of Guarda-Portugal where there are terraces and other city entertainment.
This quinta consists of approximately 2 hectares of land with olive trees, cherry trees, other fruit trees, grapes, pasture and terraces. The land is located in a mountainous area with fantastic views.
There are opportunities to develop your Portuguese, create further knowledge about what is involved in the maintenance of a quinta, beautiful nature, interesting conversations and fun. Also there are at walking distance plenty of opportunities for swimming in the Mondego river, hiking and biking. . .
On this quinta is a large, antique house on the main street of the village. From this house we have now created a space suitable for habitation. The major renovation will follow later.
Help in the house
I'm looking during the period May till the end of September 2018 for people who would mainly like to help in the maintenance of the quinta such as mowing, pruning, watering, cleaning and other work that goes into keeping a nice quinta.
