  • Description


    Hello everyone, my name is Manon. Im living in the Algarve in a small village called Tunes. Im living at a Quinta. I have 2 horses, 5 dogs and there will come some goats, fishes and chickens etc..

    With so many animals and a plot of land of 5000m2 its a lot to take care about. Im searching for someone who can help me with taking care of my animals, my garden (plot), cleanings in the house and the preparation of the evening meals. Also it can be that you help with other things like going to the supermarket etc..

    Further you take care that the plot of land will stay clean, means daily there have to be done some works in and around the house.

    The help starts between 8-9 in the morning with taking care of the animals. We will weekly see the tasks for each day, so its clear what needs to be done.

    Sometimes I will ask you to take care of everything by yourself when I need to go away. Of course we make sure you know the routine first. But I find it important that you are pro-active and can help independently without receiving daily instructions.

    Im searching for someone from 16 of May till 25 of june
