We are a friendly family of 4. We moved from Belgium to Portugal for the sunshine. We both have to watch our kids 24/7 so we can use a little help around with the kids. We own one kid-friendly dog and three cats. Some light work in the house might also be needed occasionally. We require proof that you can work with children in a playful and educational way (teaching them English for example). We are both busy parents, hence we like to have only one person, non-smoker, that has respect for the house you are staying in. Especially the bathroom and the kitchen need to be clean. We have fiber internet which is a rare find around here. We like motivated people with eye for detail that put in the effort so there is a win-win situation. If you are interested, please email us showing you have read our requirements and tell us why you specifically chose us for your workaway.

This is a large property found in the west of Portugal which is also known as the Silver Coast of Portugal.
We have our main house and four separate and welcoming guesthouses. Two houses are newly built and the 2 other houses were renovated in 2014.
