  • Description


    Hi there!

    We are looking for people who want to help us with a variety of work on our farm, at the moment mainly in building, renovation and maintanance work.

    We are a small family (51/44/11years old) and live on the beautiful countryside close to Odeceixe, at the southwest coast of Portugal on our farm and small yoga lodge we build up.

    In 2000 we moved from our home country Germany to Portugal attracted by the nice climate, so many sunny days, the nice region and the simplicity of life.

    We came here to look for a more sensefull and quality life, away from the strict structre we were used to. We live close to nature, do biological gardening and ecological building and hold some animals like some chickens, a goat, a dog, 2 cats and a horse and provide ourselfes with own water from the well and electricity from solar energy.
