Hi there! We are Otilia, Norbert and Tomás, a portuguese family living in a small farm situated 2 km from the village Rapoula da Coa in the district of Sabugal. We keep 3 dogs, 2 cats, a pony, a donky, a cow, some goats and sheeps, guinea pigs, ducks, pigs and birds. We carry a rural tourism business with a B&B and a pedagogic farm and we are looking for a volunteer that would like to help us on our farm during the very busy summer period.
We speak portuguese and french fluently, so if you want to improve your language skills we are very happy to help you with that. If there is time, we can also show you around or give you ideas on what places to explore.
Feeding the animals, cleaning the stables, help in the garden, maintenance.
You will have your own room with a double bed. The bathroom is shared. We will provide every meal for you, but you can also cook your own food if you like. Smoking is allowed outside.
There is the possibility to explore the beautiful mountain area by foot or by bike. There is a thermal Spa nearby and some medieval castles to visit also. Or you can go fishing in the river that is just a heartbeat away from our house.
