  • Description


    Greetings all! :-)

    Late Oct update: As it winds down into the winter season and things start to go quiet here, we're looking for a couple to stay here (ideally) for at least a couple of months to stay/work in our double decker bus, take care of the land and look after our cat if we're away.

    Due to the high volume of applications, please only respond if you have building/carpentry/landscaping experience.)

    If you're excited to live in nature by the ocean next to one of Portugal's finest surf beach destinations and be part of a fun community, this could be the ultimate workaway experience. We can offer you t live on a paradise plot of land just 200m from the beach (and 10 minutes walk from a village).

    We can also offer you access to a coworking and co-living space with a pool and regular community activities, such as yoga, surfing etc. So if you have personal online projects and also want a social life with maybe the odd bbq/party, this could also be the perfect place for spring/summer.

    Typical work could be tree planting, deck building, bus conversion work, carpentry, landscaping, building improvements, permaculture (later) and other varied mini projects on the land. It will vary from week to week as the project evolves.

    Please get in touch if you think this would be a good match for you! We'd love to see your portfolio! :-)

    This village is a very Portuguese place and the local community spirit is strong. The locals are very friendly and happy to talk providing you can speak a little Portuguese. We can introduce you to the local surf culture here and take you to the main spots. There is a fishing and farming industry here and we can show you the hidden local fishing spots in addition to the best local restaurants to try the local cuisine such a Bacalau or Octopus Salad. If you are interesting in Portuguese classes, I can recommend my teacher to you (she may have time to teach). There is also yoga, functional and possibility for Apnea training with a Portuguese instructor who grew up here and loves to share and inform.
