    What else ...

    We live on a small farm about 2 kms from the nearest village.
    There is a restaurant a post office, bank office, butcher, bakery, pharmacy, a beautiful church,
    and everything you need to live.
    We have three friendly dogs. The main town in the area - Oliveira do Hospital - is 12 kms away. Our immediate neighbours are Portuguese speaking but there are some English and Dutch speaking ex-pats in the area. There are nice walks and views in the area.
    there are a lot of cultural places.

    And in the winter there is the opportunity to go skiing in the Serra da Esterela.
    We also find it fun to eat together and in the evening to have a drink.
    or when we're done with work

    It may be beneficial to have your own transportation if choosing us, as we are situated in a beautiful part of the country with many amazing attractions, but are not serviced by public transport systems.

    We do require volunteers to have health or travel insurance.
