  • Description


    In early 2018, I arrived at this beautiful secluded rural 7h Quinta retreat, that was partly burnt in the devastating forest fire of October 2017. I am now in need of continued assistance with clearing the land and cutting the dead trees and generally looking after the place. Long term winter position possible. Easy going fun loving vibe.
