    We, that is Susanne and Thomas (61 and 59) are running a holiday accommodation in a villa close to Monchique, Algarve.

    The villa lies on the southern slope of the ‘Serra de Monchique’ at a height of 640 m with unique views over the whole of the Algarve.

    We love nature, quietness and solitude - and this is what we provide to our guests.

    If you wish, we will introduce you to the local community. Apart from being at a special place the national park of the west coast with its magnificent beaches is just 30 min. away

  • Help


    We are looking for saisonal help in the gardens of this 3 ha big property. Currently we try to eradicate 1 ha of eucalyptus without poison. Therefore we need to keep the sprouts at bay. Apart from that it is general garden maintanace. Dangerous tasks we do ourselves.

    Best would be a couple seeking some peaceful time at a special place.

    We are looking for help only between November and March. You will need to have your own transport, because you will stay in the villa on your own.

  • Accommodation


    You will sleep in the villa and have your own bathroom.
    There is a wood burning stove in the living room, TV and Wlan and a big, well equipped kitchen.

    We, the hosts, will not permanently stay with you in the house - so you will have to cook for yourself most of the time .

    You can also use the tennis court, billiard and other amenities (the pool will be too cold this time of year).
