  • Description


    We are a Canadian and Portuguese couple, With two small children (ages 2 and 6 months) and two dogs living in a converted farmhouse about 15 minutes from Lagos Portugal. We have quite a lot of land and are looking for people to help us with building a raised garden to grow fruits and vegetables as well as help maintaining the 50 small trees we planted last year. We live near a multitude of beaches and our closest town is Barao de Sao Joao which is known for its fun hippy vibe.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can provide a place near two small towns in the algarve, one a haven for expats and travelers and the other a very tipical Algervian town. We are also living near a choice of many beaches. There are lots of things to do here, from hiking trails in our nearby forest, cycling, surfing etc. Travelers are well placed to explore and learn about the region. We are also happy to help people wanting to practice Portuguese as we have one native speaker and myself who is always needing extra practice.
