    Description

    I've just bought a small house with a little garden near Fundão, at the foot of the Gardunha mountains .
    For the next couple of months I'll be renovating the house & creating a mini lush jungle in the garden, while living in a house nearby to make things easier.

    The household is drug free and vegetarian.

    You will have your own room.
    My two lovely cats will be hanging around 24/7, so respect and love for animals (and tolerance for cat hair!) are required.

    ➡️ Please personalise your requests & let me know why it'd be interesting for you to come stay 🌻

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can teach a few languages (EN IT DE ES), coaching, mentoring, writing and photography.
    I've lived and travelled in many countries, and I come from "Couchsurfing culture", which means that hospitality and multiculturality are the base of living for me.
    The house is located close the wonderful Serra de Estrela, and not far from historical villages like Monsanto and Idanha-a-Velha.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a train station 20 minutes walking and a bus stop right by the house. You can get to cafés and mini markets on foot.
    Due to the limited amount of work requested, I'll only be providing food when cat sitting is required.

    The house is located close the wonderful Serra de Estrela, and not far from historical villages like Monsanto and Idanha-a-Velha.
