The farmhouse is a situated between Porto and Lisbon - on the Santiago de Compostela trail. We would like to get it ready over spring and summer, as it hasn't been lived in for over 30 years. The place is peaceful and backs onto a lovely olive grove. It would be great opportunity for you to learn another language, explore the local area and help us get the place knocked into shape, ready for travellers and visitors who want to relax.
Help with Eco project
This is a rural spot so it would be a full immersion in Portuguese culture.
If you know how to garden, have good practical skills and enjoy being fed and looked after then this is the place to stay. There are some old farm buildings that we would be interested in converting into eco living spaces/workshop/bedrooms so if you have any ideas or experience in this area, it would be fantastic.
The farmhouse has water, electricity and wifi plus comfy beds and lots of good books and loads of classic films to watch after a days work. It does get hot but there are lakes and rivers nearby and the coast is 45 mins.
A welcoming place with lots of home comforts. Bed, all meals and some visits to local places.
