  • Description


    Searching helpers from August and in the following months 2019. Singles or couples. Also for longer term.
    My farm Is near the beaches Salema and Boca do Rio, Algarve, outside of Budens in the Parc Natural. It's an amazing place
    ( quiet, millions stars in the night) for people who enjoy nature and like working outside( garden, clearing).
    I have 3 dogs, twice a day they go on a walk.
    Landscape: Hills with hedges and trees. I try to conserve different habitats for insects and wild animals.
    Biológical garden , permaculture growing different herbs and vegetables.
    The food is mostely vegetarian, but I cook also meat when somebody wishes it.
    Rooms: one apartment and a double room.
    One big bathroom and a lot of options to relax near the house.
    The helpers have to work every day four hours, the weekend is free, they cook normaly for themselves.
    For lunch I normaly cook and we eat together.For dinner we don‘t have a fix time.
    Intermarché, postoffice and medical center are in Budens (3.5 km).
    Free WiFi for E-Mail in the house.
    Some beaches are available by walk, others like Zavial or Sagres by bus.
    Next year I have two little projects:
    to make all the rooms nicer inside.
    And build a compost toilet. If helpers bring new ideas....I am open.
    I am very interested to learn more about vegan.

    I introduce the helpers to the portuguese culture in Budens. I show them the biodiversity in nature and they can go with me to concerts. I help to go to other beaches or to visit Sagres and the nice places at the coast.
    I speak portuguese, french , english and german. So we can comunicate.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The helper(s) should stay and help on the Quinta one full week ( Mo-Fri). It' s important for me that they acept the rules of the house( for instante not to spend to much water in summer), that they work with concentration and that they help in the kitchen.

    Contact me by viber(sms) , e-mail or telephone.

    My hobbies are: working outdoor, nature studies, spend time with my dogs.
