  • Description


    We're a couple living on a guest house farm, with our two boxers & two cats. It's a lovely and peaceful spot in Fuseta's countryside where one can unwind while exploring and enjoying Algarve.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're only a short drive or bike ride away from Moncarapacho, Fuseta, Olhão and Tavira. Ria Formosa natural park (a unique and protected coastal lagoon & a paradise for birdwatchers) and Fuseta's salt pans & beach are only 3-5 kilometers away. You’re sincerely welcome to stay at ours, help us out a bit, and explore this beautiful, sunny and peaceful part of the Algarve, with unpretentious locals and delicious food.

    We'd urgently need a dog trainer to help us to socialise & train our boxers. Namely, while renovating we didn't really take care of that ourselves ... Tara (she'll be 3 in July) had some essential training, but Yuna (she'll be one in May) is the one which really needs training ASAP.

    Moreover, we'd love to learn Portuguese Portuguese at our home. Although, not with a dog trainer, preferably with a Portuguese language teacher. ;-) Namely, while renovating we didn't really have time for it either.

    So, we're actually looking for two different workawayers!

  • Accommodation


    We offer a cute room with a double bed (mattress: 140 x 200 cm) in our farmhouse (which we usually rent by night). Shared facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, a combo of eating & living room, a bathroom, a laundry tower, and a separate toilet. There's also a cosy covered patio with eating table in front of the farmhouse. You'd be also able to enjoy a huge terrace on the main house with sun loungers and countryside view, as well as the veranda in front of the main house & company of your hosts.

    As training dogs or teaching us Portuguese wouldn't take so much time out of your day, we'd prefer to assure only use of our facilities and drinks but no meals for you. If that wouldn't work for you, we can still discuss it. Nevertheless, as we would prefer not to assure meals, we're willing to host a workawayer with his/her companion for the whole duration of the agreed stay (if sharing the same room).
