    AVAILABILITY FOR JUNE 2019

    Looking for either:

    an artist to paint a portrait of our 2 children

    a carpenter, someone skilled to fix our shutters (The windows are now smaller so they need to be made smaller by 8 cm and fixed to the walls)

    Artist/painter - to finish our fish wall, perhaps draw some palm trees and paint them

    Someone to finish our outside compost loo.

    To stay in our gorgeous vintage caravan (or sleep in tent with use of the caravan), 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 project home near to Burgau (10 minutes walk) and Luz (20 minute walk) in the beautiful algarve, Portugal.

    We are looking for hands on, proactive people, who would be prepared to help with the project.

    Please apply if you are skilled in one of the above ways and are looking for a short stay this June (maybe early July depending on dates. You will have a large chunk of time to visit beaches (amazing beaches are a twenty minute walk away or 5 minute cycle) and there is loads to do in the area. The scenery is simply stunning and the town of Lagos is a great place for young people to go out with many bars and restaurants.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have lived in this part of the world for over 2 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.
