    General gardening help and odd jobs help.

    To stay in our gorgeous vintage caravan (or sleep in tent with use of outdoor kitchen and bathrooom with real toilet, hot water, gas etc), surrounded by countryside and tranquility, 20 minutes from the fun town of Lagos and within walking distance to amazing the beaches and villages of Burgau and Luz.

    We have a renovated home near to Burgau (10 minutes walk) and Luz (20/30 minutes walk) in the beautiful algarve, Portugal.

    We have lived in this part of the world for 6 years now and it is simply stunning. We could show you plenty of places to visit and spend time at the project house hanging out/getting tasks done during the weekdays (some weekends depending on arrival date) but generally there will be lots of free time to explore locally.
