  • Description

    Description

    Ola! We are Tracey ( New Zealander) and Tonie ( Dutch) living in the beautiful Minho region of Northern Portugal. We have a lovely home in a small village near the Geres Peneda national park. After many years of traveling and living in in different cultures around the world this is the place we have chosen to call home.
    At present we are transforming our terraced gardens and house into a B & B and would love to have the help of refreshing travelers looking for a vibrant break with a fun loving creative couple.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you will enjoy the beauty of Northern Portugal and life in a small village. I am a chef so can teach you how to create something when you believe you have an empty fridge! We are both very creative and very passionate about this region of Portugal.
    We make a lot of large artistic creations in wood and bamboo and welcome your creative input.

    we would love someone to help extend the existing organic vegetable gardens so any gardening experience mould be helpful but we can teach you the basics. We have 1600 square meters of fertile terraced land with mature walnut, chestnut, olive and fruit trees, some of these need to be pruned.
    we also have some pretty easy painting projects.
    If you wish you can help Tonie building furniture from recycled timber and help with building an outdoor kitchen and clay pizza oven.

    You will share the house with us and have your own bedroom and bathroom. Cooking will be done together, to be honest we prefer flexitarians , we are foodies and love people who love food. We will provide meals.
    During the warmer months we have a lovely, very comfortable bell tent.

    We are very well connected to Braga and the small town of Terras de Bouro, the bus stops right at our gate. There are many beautiful hiking trails and a beautiful river near by.
    There is a wonderful bar, restaurant, cafe across the road connected to the church ( bells only ring once every two weeks!)
    There is a bread truck passing at around 9.15 am everyday with fresh pastel de nata.
