  • Description


    I live in a cottage in a traditional rural setting and love the natural quiet surroundings there. .I am absent sometime as I work selling jewellery in markets and would love to have someone to help with light maintenance and occasional help with my market activity.
    When I am there I can offer a room for lodging plus food.
    Look forward to meeting you and can show you around the area. Look forward to hear from you.

    Nice place to spend winter, ideal for writing or other creative projects. You can practice other languages with me, if you wish.
    Best beaches for surf in Europe nearby.
    People interested in Portuguese language and culture can find out more about southern Portugal and its history and way of life also through music and dance shows/festivals.
