    Description

    We are a young family, An Australian and an Azorean, with a 4 year old boy and a baby girl. We are easygoing and nature lovers. Recently we got a property with two houses, both need general maintenance and renovation, some work to do in the garden, and many little projects and ideas we want to do. At the moment We want to build a bathroom using Cob techniques and wood.
    We have some painting, Sanding and coating, landscaping, cleaning, amongst other things to do, aswell.
    We would apreciate people with experiente on this matters to help us Out.
    We live in Pico de Mafra, over looking Mosteiros and its islets, where you get the best sunset on the island. There are many walk trails around here, including to Sete Cidades, one of the 7 natural wonders of Portugal, a sleeping vulcano. Its quiet, beautiful and a bit isolated.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are flexible with schedules, so people have time to get to know the island. There are beautiful landscapes everywhere. Close by, you have beach, thermal waters, natural swimming pools, trails... The public transportation are limited, but usually people are friendly and open to give rides for hitchickers. We might be able to arrange a bike if needed. One down point is that there are many hills, ups and downs. If you're interested we have a friend who rents a van to travel and sleep on.
