  • Description

    Description

    Greetings travelers of the world. I am Michiel, a 34 year old male human being. In Juli 2019 I bought a house in the Alentejo region of Portugal. The house is great and has lots of potential, which has already been tapped into, in the past year. My family came over and we had a big round of renovating all together. We are looking for people who are willing to help out in making this house into a home. Painting, some small construction jobs, gardening. That kind of stuff. It would be great to move forward together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The village of São Domingos is a beautiful example of a typical Alentejo village with all the charm that that entails. Surrounded by vast cork oak tree forests, beautiful lakes and fields it is a far cry from the daily grind of an urban live style.

    We cannot provide an income for you but we are providing good food, occasional pizza and a beautiful place to get to know Portugal.

    Help

    As mentioned above we are looking for help with painting, sanding, making furniture from palettes, adapting the electricity, gardening, cooking and petting the house cat. No specific skills are needed, although of course any experience you have is more then helpful and we would be very grateful to learn from you.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    A 1982 rapido caravan with a 70s styled corner and a comfy bed is all yours to call home as long as you stay with us. The caravan is located inside the work space, next to the garden, so you will have privacy when you feel like that.

    Daily food is provided which consists of an assortment of bread, vegetables, fruit and things like rice, lentils... We kindly ask to purchase extras like cheese, meat or anything in particular you would like, yourself (we regularly go shopping so there is no problem if you need something in particular).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We like to eat together as often as possible, which doesn't always happen in the morning due to people getting up at different times, just grab whatever you need in the mornings and evenings. Lunch is always done together, unless someone is sick, in need of some privacy or away. we are fond curry enthusiasts, a love we would love to share with you!

    The village is located about 20km from Santiago do Cacem, 40km from Sines (which is a coast town) and 120 km from Lisbon and Faro. The region is great for hiking and mountain biking.

    Buses run two times on weekdays to Santiago so public transport is often a tough one to use here. We can help by getting you into town when we go shopping or need to run errands, and of course we will pick you up and drop you off upon arrival/departure.
