We are Malte and Conny, a couple from Germany, that moved recently from the Algarve to Central Portugal (Lisbon District). We are renting a big Quinta surrounded by nature, where we also want to sublet part of it. It is a typical Portuguese house which needs some renovation, the garden (10.000 sqm) also need some helping hands and we want to build some wooden platforms outside.
Additionally we have a young dog called Ninja. She is active, loves cuddles and likes long walks. You don't have to pay attention, if you don't want to, but you should be okay with dogs.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
The Quinta is surrounded by vineyards, hiking trails, cycling trails and nature. Feel free to explore everything. You can spend a lot of time outside, learn how to plant, work creative and independent. Malte speaks fluently Portuguese, so if you are interested in the language, he would be happy to teach you some basics during your stay.
The renovation of the house contains:
- wood work
- fix some cupboards
- cleaning the eucalyptus forest
- burning wood
- keep the big garden clean
- plant some flowers
- building wooden platforms
We offer you a fully furnitured double room in our guesthouse or a parking slot for your van with access to bathroom and kitchen, additionally we provide a fridge full of vegetarian food.
