  • Description


    We are a french couple living near Alentejo's coast. We bought a beautiful land of 1hectare in January 2018. Since then, we put all our efforts to create a nice living and welcoming place in the middle of the nature. Both of us have also to work outside as we always need a bit of money... Since we are not available everyday, we are looking for a couple or 2 friends who look for a place to stay for a while (1month or more). We would like to get help a bit everyday to take care of the land, maintain the veggy garden healthy and do some little work with us depending of our free time. The ideal would be that you have your own van, if not we have an igloo tent. :)

    We are located in the Natural park of the Alentejo coast, it is possible to go hiking, fishing, canoeing, and to surf and swim in beautiful beaches.

  • Help


    From June, we look for travellers quite independent and willing to stay here for a while.

    As explained in the intro, we both have to work so we would like to get some help everyday to take care of the place, the nature and the veggy garden.
    Depending on our free time, we can also start some eco building projects.

    For the year, we don't want to have a fixed type of help, it will
    Depend of the situation of the travellers contacting us, and what do you expect.

    If you are interested, contact us and we will discuss about what kind of deal we make about number of hours of work per day, number day/week, meals included or not....

  • Accommodation


    It is important to understand that it is a new, small and low budget project so we can provide only basic facilities. If you like camping and living in the nature, it should be perfect for you!

    We have an igloo tent for one or 2 persons.
    We can provide mattresses, pillows, sheets, and common solar shower and composting toilets.

    If you have your van, it would be perfect!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you have your own van or caravan, it would be great!

    One important thing, we live 10minutes from the first village and 25minutes form the sea. Therefore, during summee, we cannot accept people without their own car as we are really busy in summer time and we cannot take you everywhere.

    It is also good to acknowledge that we are just a couple and working also outside that's why we are looking for persons who independant from June to end of September.
    It might be more adapted for a couple or for two friends traveling together.

    Thanks for reading and see you soon! ;)
