  • Description


    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.

    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.
