  • Description


    We are a family with four young children and we have a turismo rural in Aljezur Portugal. We have seven rooms and can welcome up to 20 guests. We offer a lush, vegetarian breakfast every morning.
    It is a magical place, African inspired interior with treasures from all over the world and wild nature all around. We are located walking distance to the town of Aljezur but hidden in the forest.

    We work seasonally and like to work with Work Away'ers who can stay with us for a while, a few months preferably. We need help preparing and serving breakfast, cleaning of the rooms and maintenance of the garden and animals (donkey, dogs & chickens).

    We have a simple but nice place to stay with shared equipped kitchen and private bathroom.

    We look for enthousiastic, flexible people with good vibes and healthy work ethics.

    Couples very welcome.
