We, Cherike and Robert, are a dutch couple in our early fifties enjoying the peace and quiet in the beautifull Alentejo.
Our property is 8 hectares so we have a lot of work to do. Cutting trees, mowing land, digging trenches, building sheds and whatever else needs to be done like painting, coocking or attending the greenhouse and outer beds.
Our land has a variety of trees and plants like Cork, medronho, Eucalyptus etc.
We have 2 cats, one dog, 2 elderly horses, 5 chickens and one rooster. All need and give lots of love and attention.
Although secluded we are only 16km from the ocean and its beautiful beaches. Sao Teotonio is only 8km away.
We offer a nice place to sleep. Private and tranquil.

See how it is to live in the portugese countryside. Learn to accept the quietness and just enjoy the surroundings.
Mostly land cleaning and, if you have the skills, plastering and painting of the house. Coocking, taking care of the animals, etc. If you are creative we have some nice outdoor wall surfaces to be decorated.
As we live in Portugal, practising Portuguese with us is very welcome.
