Hello, Beautiful People!
My name is Shine and I live in a beautiful valley in Beira Baixa region, not far from the small town of Fundão, between Serra da Estrella and Gardunha mountains. I have small piece of land where I need help with general development and maintainance, gardening and some building work.
I would like to keep my land clean from as much pollution as I can.
It means that I don't use any chemical products and I ask that you as well do not use them here. :)

Here you can enjoy very quiet and laid back lifestyle typical in portugese countryside.
There are many hiking trails, riverspots, local markets etc.
If you enjoy being in nature and quiet life, then this is perfect opportunity.
I ask for a minimum one month stay because it makes a big difference in energy flow.
If you have availability for a month, we can start with a week to see if it all works well. If you have just a couple of weeks, better choose another host to get the best out of your experience. Thank you. :)
Making new beds, planting, weeding and irrigation.
At the moment, final touches on existing structures. Mostly wood.
Around the structures and garden.
Earthbag flood control.
There are 2 cozy mobile-homes for sleeping, Lupita and Louis.
In summer time there are plenty of shaded spots for camping with tent or hammock.
About food - you take care of yourselves, hence the Max 3 work hours a day. There is a basically equipped kitchen at your service.
Please, do not bring meat products in my land. It brings the wild boar and i have no fences..
If you arrive on Monday before 13:00, you will join me to the supermarket, so you can make your own shopping or/and join the collective shopping.
Serra de Estrella area is popular with tourists during summer time as well as in winter time. Many opportunities for hiking, cycling, swimming.
Explore highest mountain of portugal (2000m) Serra da Estrella and beautiful Gardunha. There is also famous medival village Monsanto and other traditional villages.
Fundão is the cherry capital of Europe (!) and also known for it's very friendly locals.
There is bus and train station in Fundão with frequent connections from and to bigger cities and there is also a smaller train station (Fatela-Penamacor) 15min easy walk from the land.
Arriving days are Mondays. I can pick up from Fundao until 13:00 and from Fatela-Penamacor train station after 13:00.
If you arrive after 13:00, you need to know that the closest supermarket to the land, is in Fundão, so plan to do your shopping there before arriving.
I prefer if you try to arrive before sunset, thank you.
