  • Description

    Description

    Despite the Corona virus people who are stuck in Portugal are still welcome to stay with me. I am completely vaccinated myself, but I will not welcome antivaccers

    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 15 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.
    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 queensize bed) to help with the olive harvest and the follow up: processing the pruned branches to kindle and firewood. In 2021 the harvest will start as early as 25 Ocotber, so help by two workawayers is urgently needed

    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.
