We are a family with 2 daughters (°2008 and °2010) and moved from Belgium to Portugal in 2016!
We did it because we wanted to completely change our lives.
In the meantime, we live in an organically formed Fazenda and rent out different lodgings on airbnbn.
We have 4 dogs, 4 cats, a sheep, a pig,some lovely bunnies, a turtle, chickens, a hamster, two horses and a pony ...
Because we regularly go to family and love to travel, we are looking for volunteers who can take care of our animals when we are not around. It would be fantastic if they could also take care of the guests, just to have a daily chat with them.
When we are in Portugal, help in caring for the animals is always welcome and we want to start with a biodynamic vegetable garden.
At our place you are never alone, we receive guests from all over the world all year round, friends are vistiting us and also some familie can be here.
Our daughters went to a Waldorf Steiner school in the area and are also very open and social. In 2018 we started with homeschooling.
I, Femke, have been a vegatrian for more than 30 years, but my husband Frank needs meat and fish on his menu every now and then. I cook fresh and balanced every day.
We prefere to recieve workawayers for minimum a month.
If you have any questions, feel free!

Given the location of our Fazenda it is great to discover the Western Algarve, we live just 1.5 km from the sea and 3 km from the beach. We now know all the special beaches, local events and typical Portuguese activities. Our daughters go to a Portuguese Waldorf school and are also well integrated.
We are therefore looking for positive people who like to work outside and are crazy about animals. Because we are still in the start-up phase, we are engaged in garden maintenance, landscaping, making fencing, an outdoor toilet, setting up and laying out a kitchen garden, ....
We have a domain of 1, 5 hectares and there is a caravan with 6 beths that we rent out in the summer to guests, but which can be used by our volunteers from September to May. This is a bit removed from our house so you have the necessary privacy.
Given the location of our house it is ideal to go surfing, supping, hiking, mointenbiken, swimming in the sea, enjoying the beautiful Algarve !!! Or you enjoy your garden and the various terraces in your free time.
