  • Description

    Description

    Despite the Corona virus people who are stuck in Portugal are still welcome to stay with me.

    Cosy house with one guestroom and a small olive yard mixed with subtropical plants and trees. 3 small dogs and a cat.
    Short stays of 2-3 weeks.

    The house is situated in a small secluded village with only 13 inhabitants, in Central Portugal.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Daily contacts with the friendly locals, I can tell a lot about Portuguese culture; I am a very experienced gardener so I can coach or supervise whoever wants to learn more by doing it. I am a chef and love to prepare traditional dishes as well as Indian food.

    Due to reducing mobility, vertigo and an eye condition I would be delighted when you could help me in house and garden, general maintenance, incidentally being my driver in my car with automatic gear, and pet care/walking my dogs. In 2020 16 m2 wall tiling.
    The garden with a small pond and a raised veggie bed gives always a lot of work.
    In October/November I need two helpers (sharing a bed) to help with the olive harvest and the follow up: processing the pruned branches to kindle and firewood.

    When pet sitting is the main objective so that I can go away for a week or so, your stay will be self catered without other chores.

    Important notices: I need helpers who are fluent in Dutch, English or Portuguese, minimum age 25 years;
    My three small dogs come from shelters; experience and affinity with dogs is essential for a pleasant stay and for the well-being of all of us;
    Due to my own health condition I cannot cater for vegans and raw foodists, but you are free to prepare your own meals.
