  • Description


    We are a family of 4, me and my 3 children(ages 12, 6,4), half English half português so we speak fluently both languages. We live in the countryside next to a little cute village with all you need. We have land with many fruit trees and a view to the village and the mountains. We are just 15km from the coast. We have many friends from all of the world also with children. After already 3 months at home without school and 3 more to go I am looking for someone to come and help me look after my fun boisterous daughters. Someone who likes to play out side in the garden and in the splash pool with them! And drawing and painting etc. Also food preparation and washing up, generally helping me with my family.
    We are a creative friendly family, who have just been going through some changes and looking forward to a sunny lovely summer.
    For autumn/winter I may need help with my property, such as cutting brambles, pruning trees, starting a garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a beautiful part of Portugal, in the vicentina natural Park. A short drive from stunning beaches. We can teach you English and portuguese, we speak both natualy and fluently (because I am originally from UK but have lived in Pt for many years) We can introduce you to lots of interesting people and projects, including permaculture, and natural building.
