  • Description


    Hello there,

    Due to the Corona virus we are not hosting this year. Hope to see you next year.

    We are Casper and Monique, the proud owners of a small scale, family run and rustic B&B. We opened our doors in May 2017 and we had an amazing first 3 years. Our Quinta , is situated in Central-Portugal. On top of the hill overlooking the beautiful green valley.

    We live here with our very active 3 year old son Joshua. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 9 chicken, 3 rabbits and 5 pygmee goats.

    We have 2 Safari-tents, 1 small cottage and a family house which we rent out from April till the end of september. We produce our own all organic seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh eggs form our free range chickens, make pizza's in our stone oven, cook 3 times a week for our guests and serve breakfast 7 times a week and lunch on demand.

    We both have a passion for the outdoors, being close to nature and travel off the beaten track. We love pure and honest food. Therefor we have our own chicken and vegetable garden. We try to live of our own produce or good local products as much as possible. We are openminded and welcome all walks of live.

    We offer you your own room with your own bathroom and toilet, free use of the pool and all the other facilities.

  • Help


    At this moment we can use some help with maintaining our land,, clean the land with a bushtrimmer, work in the vegetable garden, some weeding , help us with our animals and much more.
    We are looking for a volunteer who can help us with this kind of help.

    From May we could use some help with the following:

    Keeping an eye on our son, 4 year old Joshua. A very happy boy and with tons of energy.

    We have a vegetable garden, many fruit and olive trees and a big terrain that need some attention. Weeding, planting new crops, harvesting fruit etc.
    We have 2 cats, 2 dog, 9 chickens and have 3 pygmee goats and 2 sheep so we can use your help with our animals too.

    We are looking for a girl or a couple who love children, animals and is a social outgoing person.

    Since we run our B&B ourself there is no work regarding this involved. There will be no cleaning of the guests accommodation but of course helping in and around the family house where you will stay wil be appreciated.
