  • Description


    I'm an easygoing and laidback person. I run a Farm 1h30m away from Lisbon and i'm currently starting a tourism project. We also have horses and a little vegetable garden. Apart from the tourism project we have cork, olive and pine trees. The farm is isolated and it has it´s only secluded river beaches as it ends on the shore of a river.

    Come and help me out with tourists, horses previous experience will be neccesary, gardening and take the opportunity to be surrounded by nature in Alentejo, in an old Farm.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In their free time travellers can go horse riding, go by the river with the kayak or for a swim, go for a walk, or bike riding. They can also visit Évora or Lisbon or any other place in the surroundings. I travel around so transport maybe can be provided. But basically they can do whatever they feel like it :)

    When i´m not managing the farm i like to do all the activities mentioned above. Also like to go to Lisbon, and to the south of Portugal, see concerts, exhibitions, hanging out with friends, and going to the beach to do some surfing. So basically enjoy life in general :)What I expect from people apart from the help needed is just to be laidback and friendly. Treat others with respect and kindness.
