Olá! My name is Rose. I live in a valley in the central-northern mountains of Portugal with my partner, our baby and our friends, a couple, on a 7ha land. It is a truly beautiful place in nature, we are surrounded by trees and a river is passing through the land. To reach us is to walk 10/15min on the mountain path from the village. (No direct car access).
We have solar system, running spring water and good phone reception.
Help with Eco project
If you are looking to be in nature - this is a place for you! We also want to have fun and enjoy this summer time in a community-like environment so you will make most likely great connections with people around. In our valley live people of many nationalities so possibly you could improve your language skills as well.
I am mainly looking for people who have experience with building - woodwork, claywork, eco-friendly building - anything that involves working on a building site*.
The main project we want to do this summer is to take down an old mountain hut where I live at the moment and build a proper wooden house, however there will be additional smaller projects around as well.
Also, our neighbour is planning to build a house as well, so the idea is to join forces and create a "building event" throughout this summer time, where all of us can be productive, achieve our goals and meanwhile have fun!
If you are a couple or a travelling family, and just one of you is a builder/carpenter etc. feel free to contact me as well! There is and will be plenty of additional help to be done and we are very much open to receive you!
* There will be a possibility to earn some additional money for extra working hours!
We have a guest dome on a land so some volunteers could share this space and there's plenty of camping space by the river. We will set a communal kitchen.
In your time out you could explore the nature around, hang out by the river, be creative, have retreat-like quality time... Also we or our valley friends will be definitely making summer parties and events with a proper sound system!
It is important to note that we won't allow people coming to stay with their pets due to lots of open garden land. Sorry!
