We are a german couple, live on a small farm in Algarve/Portugal situated near Faro with cats, dogs and chicken. Here we run a small plant nursery. We always need help with the plants (weeding, repotting etc) and the house and the plot (painting, cleaning, cutting bushes and trees).
We can offer a nice accommodation (room or caravan, depends on the time of year) and certainly food and bikes to explore the region or visit the next beach (8 km away). We are situated 2 km away from the next village and somebody who likes nature and animals and also private time during the day will like our farm and a stay. To meet first time we prefer a short term stay, but with the possibility to stretch it, if all of us feel happy with this idea. Normally we ask for help between breakfast and lunch, so afternoons are free time and it would be very good, if you have ideas how to spent it. You could walk or bike or read or sleep :)

Most of the work is working with plants in the nursery, twice a month we visit a market to sell plants. Beside this sometimes we need to paint something and also take care of the whole plot. Sometimes we need to cut a tree etc. We would be happy if somebody wants to help us 4 hours daily/5 days a week. We also like shorter stays in the beginning e.g. 2 weeks with possibility to longer the stay if everybody feels good with.
We have guestroom, a small appartment in the garden and a caravan with electricity and wash house beside. The accommodation depends on the time of the year as we rent out the rooms also for visitors.
A helper should like nature and animals. And the best would be, you can enjoy both. We are a more quiet place. Next village Moncarapacho 2 km far away, next beach 8 km. We can offer bikes to go around.
