    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because of our close proximity to the Portuguese border, there are many opportunities for excursions and trips. Marvao, one of Portugal's most beautiful fortresses, for example, is only 15km away. There are many old villages nearby to explore as well, in which you will feel like time stood still at least 20 years ago.

    The main help we need is taking care of the horses (grooming, longeing, riding them, taking care of the equipment, etc.). We would like to have someone who can ride well.
    Seasonal farm help is also required (trimming trees, making hay, etc.)
